Los Angeles, CA, Jan. 29, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Los Angeles Invisalign provider, Dr. Kevin Sands, explains how Invisalign works. Invisalign is a great way to straighten teeth without any of the drawbacks that are associated with traditional braces.

Removable aligners are made of a thermoplastic material that has been specifically designed for Invisalign. These trays look similar to other mouth trays but are customized to move teeth according to a carefully predetermined treatment plan. This treatment plan is created at the beginning of the treatment process using advanced computer programs. Images are taken of the patient's teeth, and the treatment goals are determined. Patients can often even see a preview of their results before they even start using Invisalign. These images are sent to a dental lab, which crafts a series of aligners.

Each of these aligners is designed to adjust the position of each tooth gently and gradually. They are placed over the teeth and apply gentle pressure to shift the teeth out of their current position. This initial set of aligners will be worn for two weeks, and then the patient will switch to the next set of aligners to continue the process. Invisalign Express dentist, Dr. Sands, often uses Invisalign as an orthodontic alternative for patients with gapped teeth, crowded teeth and crooked teeth.

Many patients appreciate not just the virtually invisible appearance of the aligners but also the convenience, comfort and simplicity of them. Invisalign aligners require no major adjustments to diet or lifestyle. Patients simply remove their aligners to eat, drink or brush and floss. The smooth plastic design eliminates the discomfort of metal wires and brackets, and fewer orthodontic visits are necessary, so patients will not have to take excessive time away from school or work as they complete treatment.
