Invisalign - Dr. Lunt in Northridge Offers The Clear Choice For Straight Teeth
No one needs to know your straightening your teeth
Dr. Lunt takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements Dr. Lunt plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You'll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won't even know you're straightening your teeth.
Dr. Lunt is trained and certified to use Invisalign technology. After an initial examination, he will determine if Invisalign is right for you. If so, he will send an impression of your teeth to the Invisalign Laboratory. Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, they will use Dr. Lunt's instructions to create several slightly different aligners, precisely molded to match your measurements and treatment goals.
Most people wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, day and night, except to eat, brush and floss. This moves your teeth gradually, week by week, millimeter by millimeter, until you've achieved the intended result. The number of office visits and length of treatment is about the same as that for traditional braces—an average of about 12 to 24 months. Dazzle them with your smile, not with metal!
