What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary alternative to traditional braces. Instead of brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually shift your teeth into proper alignment. These aligners are custom-made from a transparent plastic material, making them nearly invisible when worn, which appeals to many adults and teens in Woodland Hills who prefer a less noticeable option for orthodontic treatment.

Why Do You Need Straight Teeth?

Having straight teeth isn’t just about looking good and feeling confident; it’s also important for your oral health. Straight teeth provide the following benefits:

  • Nicer Appearance: Straighter teeth are often considered more attractive and can boost self-confidence, while crooked or crowded teeth can detract from one’s smile.
  • Improved Oral Hygiene: Straight teeth are easier to clean. Crowded or overlapping teeth can create hard-to-reach areas where plaque accumulates, leading to an increased risk of cavities and gum disease. Properly aligned teeth allow for more effective brushing and flossing.
  • Eating With Ease: Having properly aligned teeth makes chewing and biting easier. Crooked teeth may interfere with chewing or cause accidental biting of the tongue/cheeks.
  • Avoiding Problems: Crooked teeth are more prone to excessive wear, chipping, and cracking, and they also increase the chance of tooth decay and gum disease. Straight teeth distribute force evenly.
  • Reduced Stress on Jaw Muscles and Joints: Crooked teeth can put extra stress on the muscles and joints of your jaw. This can lead to issues such as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), which causes pain and dysfunction in the jaw joint and the muscles that control jaw movement.
  • Increase in Confidence: A nice smile projects confidence. Straight teeth are seen as attractive and healthy.
  • Reduced Amount of Headaches: Misaligned jaws and crooked teeth can cause headaches or migraines in some people. Correcting bite issues may relieve these pains.

How Invisalign Treatment Works

The Invisalign treatment begins with a consultation where one of our Woodland Hills dentists determines if you’re a suitable candidate. If you qualify for Invisalign treatment, digital scans are taken of your teeth to create custom, clear plastic aligners. Invisalign treatment involves the use of advanced 3D computer imaging technology, allowing for predictable tooth movements.

The Invisalign aligners, worn for about 20 to 22 hours a day, gradually shift your teeth into the desired position. The tooth movement is subtle and you shouldn’t feel any pain throughout the Invisalign process. You’ll attend regular check-ups every 6 to 8 weeks so we can monitor progress and provide the next set of aligners.

Invisalign Candidacy

Invisalign treatments are a great option for many patients, but they’re not right for everyone. Good candidates for Invisalign in Woodland Hills typically include:

  • Have mild to moderate orthodontic issues
  • Are committed to wearing their aligners for at least 22 hours a day
  • Brush and floss regularly to maintain good oral hygiene
  • Can afford the cost of treatment or have insurance that covers Invisalign
  • Are in good overall oral health


If you have more severe orthodontic issues, Dr. Chaves may recommend traditional braces or other types of orthodontic treatment.

Cost of Invisalign Treatment

The cost of Invisalign treatment will vary depending on various factors. On average, the cost of Invisalign ranges between $3,000 and $8,000. Factors including your geographic location, the complexity of your case, and your dental insurance plan will all influence the total Invisalign cost.

While we accept many dental insurance plans, Invisalign may not always be covered by your insurance provider. Contact your provider to learn more about your insurance coverage.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most patients complete their Invisalign treatment within 12 to 18 months. However, treatment time can vary depending on the severity of your orthodontic issues.

You’ll need to visit your dentist or orthodontist every 6 to 8 weeks during your Invisalign treatment plan.
