Invisalign is an excellent program for teens and adults who want to feel less self-conscious about their smile, or simply make an average smile better. Its success rate has been documented at 96 percent, with the percentage of flawed cases typically involving patients who do not follow directions.
One way in which people feel self-conscious about their smile is while maintenance is ongoing. When you wear braces, for example, you can worry about the old metal-mouth stigma. Invisalign changes all that by straightening your teeth without visible bracket or archwire. You wear clear plastic aligners and those do the work right in plain sight.
Our expert in Invisalign in Northridge recommends Invisalign for those who can keep to a schedule and do not mind following instructions. In most cases, a bad result is produced by deviating from the course. You are meant to wear the aligner trays in a certain order, for a certain length of time. Failing to do so, or failing to remove the aligners for meals, can affect your treatment.
Simply put, Invisalign works if you work it. For more on how Invisalign can help you, contact our Northridge cosmetic dentist.
