Invisalign® aligners are an effective and discreet orthodontic treatment option that are worn comfortably over your teeth to continuously adjust alignment and spacing.
Invisalign® aligners are custom-made using models of both your current teeth and the end result you hope to achieve. With Invisalign® aligners, you will switch to new aligners every 1-2 weeks with each set shifting the teeth slightly—this continues until you have achieved your final results, which can vary from six months to two years.
You remove the Invisalign® aligners for eating, drinking and cleaning only. At first, they will feel very tight, but they will begin to loosen and feel more comfortable after a few days.
Start Transforming Your Smile
Here at Long Beach Dental Health we make the Invisalign® process nice and easy. To begin, we will take photographs of your teeth and face, and then using the iTero scanner we will get impressions of your teeth. Dr. Saad uses the latest 3D scanning technology to get accurate models of your teeth, without using the rubbery impression materials. Those scans are sent to Invisalign® with detailed instructions on how we want the final result to appear. Invisalign® will then work with Dr. Saad to finalize the amount of trays and weeks your treatment will be. Once final, the trays are made and mailed to our dentist office. You will wear a set of trays for one to two weeks at a time for approximately 6 months to 2 years, or the length of time determined by your dentist.Start Your Transformation

What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is a set of clear, removable, comfortable aligners that are worn for a period of time to gradually realign your teeth. There is no metal associated with Invisalign® so you can continue to smile while wearing them and even more afterwards.
What are Invisalign® aligners made of?
Invisalign® clear aligners are made of a durable, flexible thermoplastic material that are strong enough to gradually move your teeth.
What are the benefits of Invisalign® aligners?
These benefits include but are not limited to:
- Properly aligned teeth
- Proper occlusion/bite balanced distribution of forces
- Decrease in breaking and chipping of teeth
- Increased ability to floss between properly aligned teeth
- A straight smile that you can show off
How long does Invisalign® treatment take?
Depending on the complexity of each persons' case can change the length of treatment. Although, treatment can be as short as 4 months at times. It all depends on how complicated a patients' case may be and how many sets of aligners are needed to achieve the smile you desire.
