Advantages of Invisalign®
Invisalign® uses clear aligners that are custom-made for your mouth. Best of all, they are almost undetectable. Dr. Palani, at Total Smile Care in Rancho Palos Verdes is a Certified Preferred Provider for Invisalign.
As an artist himself, Dr Palani has a good eye for aesthetics, harmony and beauty. He will plan your Invisalign treatment so that your smile looks natural and enhances your appearance.
Free Invisalign Consultation
Dr. Palani offers a free consultation so you can decide if this type of orthodontic treatment is right for you or your teen. He’ll perform an oral examination to see if you or your teen is a candidate for Invisalign®. You’ll get an opportunity to discuss treatment options with Dr. Palani and get any questions you may have answered.
For a limited time, Dr. Palani is offering $1000 off the usual cost of Invisalign treatment and free in-office Zoom! Teeth Whitening!
How Invisalign® works
Unlike conventional metal braces, Invisalign® uses high-grade plastic trays, called aligners, which fit closely over your teeth. Dr. Palani takes panoramic x-rays and impressions. He creates a treatment plan based on impressions of your teeth that will quickly, painlessly and invisibly straighten your teeth and enhance your smile.
The aligners are changed every two weeks to gradually move your teeth into their final position. Every six weeks you’ll visit Dr. Palani for a checkup to monitor your progress.
Advantages of Invisalign over traditional braces
No ugly braces: The aligners are clear and are virtually invisible as they reshape your smile.
No irritation: Braces need metal brackets and wires that can poke and irritate your mouth. Invisalign’s aligners are made from smooth plastic that won’t irritate your mouth.
Easy teeth cleaning: Unlike metal braces that make brushing and flossing more difficult and time consuming, Invisalign’s aligners are removable for easy cleaning.
Eat whatever you want: While wearing metal braces many foods are restricted, with Invisalign® you can eat whatever you want! Just pop your aligners out.
Fewer doctor visits: You’ll see Dr. Palani every six weeks, rather than every four weeks for traditional braces.
Treatment usually takes about a year for an adult and a year-and-a-half to two years for a teen, which is the same time-frame as with traditional braces. However, since the aligners are clear, you’ll see improvements in your smile long before completion of your treatment.
Conditions Invisalign can treat
The Invisalign® System is an alternative to braces for patients with complete jaw growth and full adult dentition. The system is effective on a wide-range of conditions. And, again, both adults and teenagers can straighten their teeth with Invisalign®.
