Treatment With Your Northridge & Woodland Hills Orthodontists

At Blooming Smiles, we handle every orthodontic case on an individual basis. As your local Northridge and Woodland Hills orthodontists, we understand that your smile is different than any other. Dr. Sanjideh and Dr. Golian have years of experience helping patients just like you complete Invisalign® treatment. This alternative to traditional braces is nearly undetectable, allowing you a more discreet and low-profile treatment option.

How Does Invisalign Work?Invisalign clear aligners laying on a countertop

When you visit our office, we will begin with a comprehensive exam to determine whether Invisalign® is the right course of treatment for your situation. Our doctors will discuss with you the goals you have for treatment and the results you desire to achieve upon completion. With this information in mind, they will recommend a treatment plan. It will probably look something like this:

1. Pictures will be taken of your mouth to input into the computer.
2. 3D computer technology takes the precise measurements and information to design a series of aligners. You may be required to have anywhere from 12 to 48 in all.
3. You will wear each set of aligners for approximately two weeks, and for at least 22 hours each day. 
4. When the two weeks is complete, you simply switch the aligners out for the next set in the series. This continues until you have completed treatment.

Making The Most Of Your Treatment

There are many benefits that come from the Invisalign® system, but you must do all you can to make it work properly. Although the aligners are removable, you should only take them out to eat, brush, and floss. On special occasions, it is okay to remove them, but you should strive for at least 22 hours of wear every day. 

The aligners should also be brushed each day and rinsed with warm water. Once a week you can soak them in denture cleaner and again rinse in warm water. Do not wrap them in napkins when you eat, but rather place them in the container given to you by your orthodontist. This will help you avoid throwing them away.
