Invisalign® Los Angeles: A Better Way to Straighten Teeth
without calling attention to treatment!
Very few people have naturally straight teeth. For years, braces were the only option. Until now. Introducing Invisalign, a revolutionary new way to straighten teeth – without braces!
So Invisible, You’ll Be The Only One Who Knows
Invisalign uses a series of nearly undetectable aligners instead of brackets and wires. So, it’s really hard for people to tell you’re wearing Invisalign, even up close. Dr. Setti, at his West Hollywood, Los Angeles Invisalign office, can give you the smile you’ve always wanted without the braces you’ve always avoided.
No Braces! Nothing to Hold You Back
Because there are no metal wires and brackets, Invisalign is comfortable. And, because it’s removable, eating, brushing and flossing are a breeze. You can enjoy your favorite foods without holding back. With Invisalign, there’s nothing to hide.
The Latest Technology Makes It Possible
At your complimentary initial consultation, Dr. Setti can tell if Invisalign is right for you. He will create a treatment plan, then take an impression of your teeth and digital x-rays. Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign carefully translates Dr. Setti’s instructions into a series of precisely shaped aligners. You then wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, which gradually move your teeth – week by week – until you’ve achieved the intended result: straighter teeth. Another benefit of Invisalign over wire braces is that treatment time can be shorter.
Proven Results Behind Great Smiles
In both clinical research and in orthodontic practices nationwide, Invisalign has been proven as effective as wire braces at straightening teeth. Only a doctor who has been trained and certified by Invisalign can treat using Invisalign. Dr. Setti is a certified Invisalign® doctor and can determine if Invisalign is right for you. Straight teeth; no braces!
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How long does Invisalign® treatment take and how much is it?
A. The duration and cost of treatment depends on the complexity of your case, some as little as 3 months. You may be surprised by how little time and expense is required. Invisalign is faster and costs less than braces.
Q. How often do I wear my aligners?
A. Invisalign works only by wearing the aligners. You will wear them except to eat, brush or floss, as directed by Dr. Setti.
Q. Am I too old to have my teeth straightened?
A. There are virtually no age restrictions on Invisalign.
Q. Are there restrictions to what I can eat or drink?
A. No. Unlike traditional braces, you will completely remove your aligners to eat and drink. There’s no need to miss your favorite things.
Q. How often will I need to see Dr. Setti?
A. Dr. Setti will schedule appointments usually every 6 weeks in order to give you your new aligner set and to see your progress.
Q. Will wearing the aligners affect my speech?
A. You may have a slight lisp for a day or two until your tongue adapts to having the aligners in your mouth. After that, most people pretty much forget they’re wearing them.
Q. Will the treatment be uncomfortable?
A. You may experience slight tooth soreness for a day or two after starting each new stage. This is normal and is a sign that the Invisalign aligners are working – sequentially moving your teeth to their final destination. Any slight soreness should go away after a couple of days.
