Invisalign: The Clear Alternative

Invisalign® is one of the newest advances in orthodontics.  In addition to metal and clear braces, you can now be a candidate for a clear “invisible” solution. The Invisalign system has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthodontic practices worldwide.  However, only a certified orthodontist like Dr. Azar, can undertake this procedure. Dr. Azar was among the first group of doctors to become certified in Invisalign. Dr. Azar is an Top Invisalign Provider orthodontist, which means she is among the top 5% of all Invisalign Providers in North America and that she has successfully treated more cases than most dentists and orthodontists combined.

How does Invisalign work?
Dr. Arleen Azar-Mehr uses the iTero Digital Scanner to take 3D impressions on each Invisalign patient, allowing us to permanently retire that uncomfortable, gooey, impressions material that is typically used. At the same time, it provides more precise information for better fitting appliances and by using the Invisalign Outcome Simulator, we’re able to show you your before and after smile within minutes! Next, a series of custom clear aligners are manufactured that fit over your teeth, and gradually straighten them without the need for metal wires or braces.

The first step to achieving a dream smile? Understanding the benefits of Invisalign so that it can help you make a decision as to whether it could be the right fit for your teen or yourself!

  • They’re Completely Clear:
    Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. No closed-lipped selfies here! If your teen is self-conscious about his or her appearance in photos, Invisalign could be the right choice.
  • They’re a Confidence Booster
  • They’re Removable:
    Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing your teen to eat and drink whatever they’d like while in treatment – and play certain sports more easily.
  • And here’s a benefit for parents: With Invisalign there are fewer and shorter appointments because you have the freedom to change into your trays without making an office visit. There are also virtually no emergencies – you don’t have to worry about broken brackets or poking wires. Put all these benefits together and there is a clear reason to ask about Invisalign.

Adults and responsible teens can benefit from this revolutionary system to improve their smiles.  To determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign, simply schedule an appointment or call (818) 886-6666 for a complimentary Invisalign evaluation by our Top Invisalign Provider, Dr. Arleen Azar-Mehr.
