What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually move teeth into their desired position. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and can be easily removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. This makes them an ideal choice for anyone who doesn’t want to have a noticeable orthodontic appliance in their mouths. Invisalign aligners are custom-made for each individual patient using cutting-edge technology and 3D imaging. The treatment is divided into a series of stages, with each stage represented by a new set of aligners that gradually shift the teeth into the desired position.
How Invisalign Works
The first step in the process is to visit an orthodontist or dentist who specializes in Beverly Hills Invisalign treatments. They will take 3D images of your mouth to create a detailed plan of how to best move your teeth. After they create a customized plan, they will create clear aligners that are specifically tailored to you. Each set of aligners must be worn for two weeks before progressing to the next one. Every two weeks you will switch to a new set of aligners that are slightly different from the previous set, and as you progress through each set, your teeth will gradually move into the desired position. You should wear the aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours per day for optimal results, and remove them only when eating or brushing your teeth. Your orthodontist will schedule regular check-ups to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments. On average, most patients complete the Invisalign treatment within 12 to 18 months, depending on the severity of their case. Once you finish the program, you will have a beautiful smile that will last a lifetime!
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?
- Comfort: Invisalign aligners are made of a flexible, comfortable material that fits snugly over your teeth.
- Convenience: The aligners are easy to take out, making it convenient for you to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
- Discreet: They are made of a clear material so they are practically invisible when you wear them.
- Fast Results: With Invisalign, you can expect to see results in as little as six months.
- Customization: The aligners are made to fit your exact dental needs and are custom-made specifically for you.
Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces
Traditional braces are made of metal brackets and wires that are attached to the teeth and gradually tightened over time to shift the teeth into alignment. While traditional braces can be effective in many cases, they can also be uncomfortable and require frequent visits to the orthodontist for adjustments. They can also make eating certain foods difficult, as they can get caught in the braces and cause damage or discomfort.
Invisalign, on the other hand, uses clear plastic aligners that fit snugly over the teeth. These aligners apply gentle pressure to the teeth, pushing them into alignment without the need for metal brackets or wires. This makes them more comfortable than traditional braces and allows patients to eat and drink whatever they want without worrying about damaging the braces.

Prepare for Your First Appointment
As you prepare for your first Beverly Hills, CA Invisalign appointment, you are most likely very excited but also not sure what to expect. Many patients have a general idea of how to prepare and what will happen, but we wanted to give specifics so you feel comfortable during your time in the orthodontist chair. After you learn how to prepare, contact TruGLO Modern Dental to schedule your first appointment.
Before the Appointment
Your first time with us will be a consultation. That means the orthodontist will examine your teeth and potentially conduct some tests. To make the appointment run as smoothly as possible, we recommend brushing and flossing your teeth before you arrive. This will ensure that your teeth are clean and easy to inspect so that the orthodontist can get you more information faster on potential orthodontic treatments for your mouth. We also recommend only drinking water after you brush and floss to keep your teeth sparkling clean as well as not snacking or eating meals until after your appointment has ended.
During the Appointment
You will meet our Beverly Hills Invisalign orthodontist. They will sit down with you and talk about what sort of treatment you are looking for. They may ask about your medical history to better understand your genetics and how to best serve your teeth. They may also run some tests. There is no need to be anxious or worried. These tests will most likely be something simple such as x-rays just to get a better look at what is happening inside your mouth. No matter what your orthodontist chooses to do, they will explain every step of the process so you feel comfortable. We encourage you to ask questions as well. Our orthodontists are more than happy to answer anything from technical teeth questions to simple questions about why they need to take x-rays.
Once the orthodontist has done a thorough examination, they will let you know if you are eligible to receive Invisalign braces. There are rare cases where a person will not be eligible due to the angle at which their teeth currently preside in their mouth. If this is the case, the orthodontist will offer other options that you can pursue to achieve the smile of your dreams.
If you are eligible, the orthodontist will walk you through the next steps of the process which include getting a mold of your teeth and handing over your first set of aligners.
After the Appointment
Once your initial consultation is done, it will be time to set up your next appointment. Our staff will let you know what will happen during your next appointment whether that is further tests, fitting for your new aligners, or other avenues to help your oral health. After scheduling your appointment, you can go back to your normal routine. You can also eat or drink whatever you want after the consultation! Just remember, the key to good dental hygiene is to not eat or drink too much refined sugar and to always brush and floss on a regular basis.
