The Importance of Orthodontics

A simple smile can say a lot especially for patients whose teeth are misaligned and/or uneven. That smile may convey the wrong message. Aligning teeth in the proper position is important for several cosmetic reasons and instrumental for health-related reasons. Think of tires for example, no matter how shiny or new the tires look; a complete alignment is still needed in order for them function effectively and not wear out. Eliminating gaps, uneven spacing, overcrowding and bite misaligment can enhance the look of your smile.

At Carlston Dental Group, we believe that Orthodontics should be a pillar of all practices. Which is why our goal is to preserve each patient's natural tooth structures by providing them with the least-invasive treatments as possible. There are various ways that proper orthodontic care can be achieved without needing extractions. These methods can correct crowding and jaw misalignment and help with bone growth.

Invisalign® Orthodontics

Orthodontics has been closely associated with uncomfortable, stubborn, and painful metal braces and foreign objects that get in the way. However, Invisalign rids all those problems. Known as an Orthodontics system that uses a series of clear, plastic aligners to guide the teeth toward proper positioning; the steady pressure of these trays allow gentle re-positioning of the teeth and even expansion of the arches to avoid extractions. The Advancement of the current Dental Technology allows Carlston Dental Group to treat majority of Orthodontic Patients with Invisalign rather than using arcane and traditional braces or applications. When patients wear the trays for about 22 hours a day, significant and remarkable changes should be shown. Once desired results are achieved, Carlston Dental Group can administer other necessary forms of treatments. Patients would have longer lasting results since the natural structures of the tooth have been preserved.

Patients in the West Los Angeles and surrounding areas that require Orthodontic Treatment can visit Carlston Dental Group off of Overland Ave. and Pico Blvd. The initial treatment process is simple: 3D impressions of the teeth will be taken to create customized oral trays just for you. The turnaround time from start to finish is between 2 to 3 weeks, shipped straight from a designated Invisalign lab. Patients then can return to our West Los Angeles office to ensure proper fit and began the Invisalign process.
