Invisalign aligners are an effective way to straighten the teeth without metal brackets and wires. Dr. Reza Salmassian, expert in Invisalign in Culver City, can fit you with Invisalign aligners and help you achieve the even smile you have always wanted.
Dr. Salmassian, Culver City Invisalign provider, often recommends Invisalign aligners because of the advantages they offer some patients over traditional braces. Metal braces can take as long as two to three years to straighten the teeth, whereas Invisalign aligners can take as little as one year to guide teeth into their final position.
The biggest advantage that Invisalign aligners have, according to Dr. Salmassian, expert in Invisalign in Culver City, is that they are transparent. The casual observer is unlikely to notice that the patient is even wearing the aligners, which makes them popular for adults and older teens.
Invisalign aligners are also removable, although Dr. Salmassian, Culver City Invisalign provider, recommends wearing them for at least 22 hours each day. They can be taken out when you eat, allowing you to continue to enjoy all of your favorite foods. The aligners can also be removed for oral care. This way, you can simply brush and floss your teeth as usual.

To care for the Invisalign aligners, Dr. Salmassian recommends that you either purchase the Invisalign cleaning system or brush them. The Invisalign cleaning system uses a cleaning tub and cleaning crystals to clean and sanitize the aligners in just 15 minutes. However, many patients prefer to care for their aligners themselves by brushing them thoroughly with a soft-bristled toothbrush and a non-abrasive toothpaste. Do not use whitening toothpaste because these toothpastes can scratch the aligners, ruining their transparency and creating places for bacteria to breed.
