BHO Offers Invisalign and Braces to Patients of All Ages
|How BHO Does Invisalign|
|While many providers only use Invisalign to correct mild-to-moderate problems facing adult patients, Beverly Hills Orthodontics does not have these restrictions. Dr. Madan and the BHO team offer Invisalign to patients of all ages—including those with complex alignment problems. We treat complex cases by combining Invisalign with additional measures. Depending on which issues you are dealing with, these measures may include:
Invisalign officially recognizes Beverly Hills Orthodontics as one of the top clear aligner practices in the country. Every year, Invisalign ranks providers based on their case numbers and historical success rates. BHO annually receives Invisalign’s highest ranking, VIP Diamond+, a title that proves we deliver outstanding care.
Many of our patients choose Invisalign over braces for the following reasons:
Invisalign aligners are transparent and discreet
Treatment is free of dietary restrictions
Clear aligners do not affect your brushing and flossing routine
Of course, Invisalign isn’t ideal for everyone—especially those who do not want to worry about keeping track of aligners or reaching daily compliance goals.
Invisalign patients must wear their aligners for 20-22 hours a day for proper results. Patients that lose their aligners or can’t reach their daily goals often experience:
- Treatment delays
- Ill-fitting clear aligners
- Unintended tooth movement
- Tooth recession
For these reasons, some patients prefer the simplicity of braces. With braces, you just avoid certain foods, brush and floss daily, and visit the best orthodontist in Echo Park every 4-6 weeks for a wire tightening checkup. Following these instructions, you can have a perfectly straight smile in 6-24 months.
Beverly Hills Orthodontics offers three types of braces:
- Conventional Metal Braces: Consisting of brackets and wires, conventional metal braces still set the standard for orthodontic treatment. Today’s brackets and wires are smaller, more comfortable, and better-looking than older models.
- Ceramic LightForce Braces: Ceramic LightForce braces use the same aligning methods as metal braces, but their ceramic brackets give a more discreet look. LightForce brackets are also made using 3D printers, enabling our orthodontists to customize the brackets to fit your teeth better and move them at a quicker pace.
- InBrace (Lingual Braces): Lingual braces use brackets and wires like conventional braces, but they aren’t placed on the front of teeth—they are placed on the back of teeth, facing the tongue. This placement makes lingual braces the most discreet orthodontic option available.
