Invisalign in Redondo Beach, CA
If you’re feeling ashamed or embarrassed about your crowded or misaligned teeth, Invisalign® clear aligners can provide you with the straight, beautiful smile that you’ve always wanted. At Pacific Smiles, Dr. Fred J. Kim is a certified Invisalign® provider in the South Bay area. As a discrete orthodontic alternative for busy lifestyles, Invisalign® clear aligners can straighten teeth in as little as 6 weeks.
What is Invisalign®?
Available for over 20 years now, Invisalign® clear aligners are a safe, effective teeth straightening method for those who are concerned about closing gaps or fixing misaligned teeth. Invisalign® comes in the form of a removable tray, making the aligners easy to take out and put back on for eating and cleaning purposes. Over the past decade, Dr. Kim and his professional staff have seen some amazing results in our Invisalign® patients within as little as 6 weeks!
Is Invisalign® Better Than Braces?
Based on patient feedback, these are some of the things they love about using Invisalign® clear aligners to restore their smiles:
- Trays can be removed for brushing, flossing, or eating
- No food restrictions
- More comfortable than conventional wired braces
- Can participate in all sports and music activities
- Virtually invisible to others
- Costs about the same as traditional braces
In addition to these benefits, most dental insurance plans are now covering some of the treatment costs associated with removable orthodontic appliances- including Invisalign®.
What is the Process for Getting Invisalign?
Dr. Kim will first do a comprehensive examination of your teeth, gums, and mouth. If Invisalign® is right for you here’s what to expect:
- Detailed impressions of your teeth and mouth will be taken, along with digital X-rays and photographs. All the information is then sent to the Invisalign® dental lab.
- The lab will create Invisalign® trays with computer-aided precision to ensure maximum teeth re-alignment accuracy. When the trays come in, we’ll call you to pick them up.
- At that time our dental professionals will provide instructions on how to use and care for your Invisalign® clear aligners.
How Long Do I Need to Wear Invisalign Correctors for?
The average Invisalign® treatment period is 6 to 24 months. The trays are meant to be worn 20 to 22 hours per day, including while you’re asleep, and should only be removed for brushing, flossing, and eating. A failure to follow these instructions could result in having to wear the trays for several additional weeks.
When the initial orthodontic correction is more pronounced, after your initial Invisalign® therapy it may be necessary to wear a nighttime retainer for several more months to ensure optimal smile restoration results.
