Dr. Mungcal of Downtown Dental in Los Angeles knows how important it is for his patients to have a beautiful smile. Many patients struggle with misaligned teeth, but dislike the idea of undergoing months of treatment with unattractive metal braces. However, metal wire and bracket braces are not the only option when it comes to improving your smile. At Downtown Dental, Dr. Mungcal offers a revolutionary way to change your smile: Invisalign .
Invisalign are unlike the traditional orthodontics with the familiar brackets and wires. Invisalign are essentially clear aligner trays that snap over your teeth which are virtually invisable. They are changed out regularly, approximately every two weeks, in order to slowly move your teeth.
The process of receiving custom-made Invisalign starts with a visit to Dr. Mungcal. Once you have been determined to be an eligible candidate for this form of treatment, digital impressions are made of your teeth. These are turned into a digital imprint that is used to create your clear aligner trays. A series of trays are made for your entire treatment, and these trays are worn all day and night. When you eat, drink, or brush your teeth, you will remove your trays. Otherwise, they are worn at all times to readjust your teeth into their proper locations. The length of time needed for Invisalign treatment will vary depending on the severity of your problems and the number of teeth that need to be realigned.
Invisalign are perfect for adults to change their smiles without worrying about looking like a teenager with metal wires and brackets covering their teeth during treatment. They are also extremely easy to use, and are hard to notice, making them a great pairing for business-minded adults and career-focused individuals.
Invisalign are just one of many services offered by Downtown Dental. Downtown Dental prides itself in offering state-of-the-art technology, an up-to-date facility, and a warm, caring team to help you with your dental care.
