The invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces. To discuss clear braces in the Torrance CA area, please feel free to contact us to schedule an appointment with Dr. Jamie Mellert Houck.
A smile is often the first form of communication and can reveal a lot about a person. Eighty percent of people suffer from some level of malocclusion or crowding that not only leaves us embarrassed to smile, but often results in decay, bone loss, and ultimately tooth loss. Dr. Houck believes every person should have a healthy smile that they are confident in. She is grateful for the role she plays in the life-changing treatment of straightening teeth and giving patients a level of confidence they never knew was possible. Call today to discuss if Invisalign® could be right for you.
Invisalign treatment uses a series of clear, removable, and comfortable aligners which allow you to smile without others knowing you are going though orthodontic treatment. Dr. Houck plans each Invisalign case specific to the individual goals of the patient using the most advanced computerized technology. She is even able to show her patient’s the treatment outcome before they commit to treatment. Treatment time for Invisalign is typically much quicker than braces. Most of Dr. Houck’s treatments take around six months depending on the complexity of the case.
Patient’s can brush and floss normally and eat or drink whatever they would like while in Invisalign treatment. Age is not a limiting factor to straitening teeth through Invisalign treatment. Invisalign is perfect for busy adults who want a healthier, more attractive smile without pain or a lot of time in a dental office. If you are interested in Invisalign treatment, give our office a call for a courtesy consultation (310) 543-1234.
Dr. Houck is a Top Trained Invisalign doctor and serves on the Board of Directors on the American Academy of Clear Aligners (AACA) and is the President of an Invisalign Reingage Class. Straightening teeth through the use of clear aligners has allowed Dr. Houck to give patients life-changing confidence in their smile. Aligning teeth in the proper positioning allows for proper function to prevent long term damage like chipping of teeth and even TMJ problems. It is a treatment for both dental health as well as esthetics.
Dr. Houck will help to fit you for your clear aligners using advanced computer technology to create a 3D image of your teeth and create a custom set of aligners just for you. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment. You’ll wear a set of aligners for approximately two weeks, after which you will receive a new, slightly different aligner.
One of the primary reasons why people choose Invisalign® clear aligners is that you can remove them for easier cleaning. It is recommended that you remove your aligners every night and brush them gently to keep them clean. There’s also an Invisalign® cleaning system that can be used when you want to do a deeper cleaning.
If you’re interested in learning more about Invisalign® or would like to get started with the process, we encourage you to give us a call at our Torrance office to schedule a consultation.
