Invisalign® – Discreet Treatment from Louis F. Mascola, DDS, Inc.

When considering their orthodontic options, many teens and adults look for a discreet, convenient, and efficient treatment. At Louis F. Mascola, DDS, we offer a metal free alternative to traditional braces through Invisalign®. With this nearly invisible orthodontic alternative, young adults and professionals can improve teeth alignment with the convenience of removable trays. Louis F. Mascola, DDS, provides Invisalign® with many years of orthodontic experience and training to give patients a bright smile.

How Invisalign® Works 

Invisalign Aligner | Orthodontist

After Dr. Mascola has decided that Invisalign® is right for your smile, he takes a digital scan that will be used to make your invisible aligners. Made from medical-grade plastic that are fully molded to your smile, these clear aligners gradually push teeth into the right place by slightly altering the position of the teeth. Every few weeks, a new clear aligner replaces the old one, advancing the treatment.

The aligners requires minimal change in daily habits, where patients simply have to remove the aligners before meals, and regularly clean them. Patients can continue their normal diet and life without the hassle of frequent dental appointments or distracting metal braces.  With this clear braces solution, patients can achieve a uniform smile without
sacrificing cosmetic comfort or convenience.

Is Invisalign® right for me?

Invisalign | Torrance Orthodontist

At Dr. Mascola’s orthodontic practice, we recommend Invisalign® for teens and adults. Patients who have already undergone orthodontic treatment but are experiencing alignment relapse may also benefit from a course of Invisalign® treatment.

Compared to other braces options, Invisalign® does require a certain degree of patient compliance. In addition to wearing the aligning trays for at least 22 hours per day, patients must stay on track with their treatment plan and switch out old trays for new ones on time. Given the comfort and treatment flexibility however, many patients find Invisalign® easy to comply with. Whether travelling or busy, this treatment provides flexibility to patients who need it. 

Dr. Mascola is an expert at providing orthodontic treatment to patients of all ages. With his experience, patients are enabled to have efficient and proper teeth treatment. Invisalign® can correct many dental problems from malocclusions to teeth alignment, but it’s important to have an examination with your local orthodontist, Dr. Mascola, before deciding on a treatment.
