Invisible braces deliver comfortable and beautiful straightening for downtown LA patients

Dr. Don Mungcal of Downtown Dental in Los Angeles offers the Invisalign invisible braces system to perfect your smile. This orthodontic treatment is designed and carried out from start to finish through minimal and brief visits to our office – no outside specialists required. Though Invisalign treats some of the same conditions as traditional braces, there are distinct advantages, to this option.

While Invisalign clear aligner trays are removable, patients should adhere to a strict commitment to wear theirs at least 20 hours per day. Removal should really only be done for mealtime and oral hygiene. If a patient is not committed to this schedule, then it is unrealistic to expect the best results.

One of the most desirable traits of the Invisalign system is that the alignment trays are clear, and virtually invisible to others. They do, however, require adjustment for the wearer when speaking. This will diminish as the patient becomes accustomed to wearing them.

It should be noted that Invisalign holds great potential for many patients, but it isn't meant for all conditions. This is another reason why a consultation with Dr. Mungcal is important. Evaluation of many aspects of treatment will help the dentist, as well as the patient, decide if Invisalign is the right treatment to pursue.

Another positive that most patients enjoy about Invisalign is there is no need for uncomfortable adjustments. Aligners are designed for a patient in progressive stages, and changed at scheduled intervals to transition towards goal. The movement made to teeth may be described as uncomfortable at times, rather than painful – far different from the experience with traditional braces.

While the doctor will discuss your expected outcome, do not expect results to appear overnight. Invisalign is a process that must be followed as directed in order to achieve the desired improvements. Length of treatment depends on the individual case. Commitment to the program and patience is required, and the result is well worth it. A dazzling, perfected smile is definitely worth a relatively minimal time investment to achieve the look you thought was only a dream.

Call us today to schedule a personalized Invisalign consultation. With convenient, validated parking, as well as our understanding, and respect for your valuable time, you'll enjoy a pleasant experience at Downtown Dental. In no time, you could be on your way to an improved self-image with a new Invisalign smile.
