Lasting Impressions Dental Spa is the LEADING PROVIDER for invisalign in the area
Invisalign is one of the newest and most popular ways to straighten teeth. Here at Lasting Impressions, we offer Invisalign and Clear Correct, two very similar products created to straighten teeth without the unsightly use of braces. We are the leading provider for invisalign Encino, CA.
Invisalign is the most advanced treatment for orthodontics for people of ALL ages. Lasting Impressions Dental Spa offers Invisalign for adults and Invisalign for teens. We have successfully corrected Crossbites, Overbites (Class 2), Underbites (Class 3), and other severe cases using our clear aligners with Invisalign or Clear Correct. We have even corrected cases that other orthodontists would recommend solving with palatal expanders, jaw surgery, or braces.
How Does Invisalign Work?
The first step is taking a mold or a digital scan of your teeth. Either of those imprints of your teeth are sent to Invisalign. Dr. Isaac Kahen Kashani, together with Invisalign, will determine a series of “stages” for your teeth to shift. Shifting the teeth a little at a time prevents discomfort and allows the teeth to move into position properly. Every two weeks, you will use a new tray to shift your teeth gradually. Your first set of trays look like your teeth today, and your last set of trays will look like how we want your teeth to look. Your dentist will give you multiple trays at once with dates and instructions to change them out. This way, you do not need to make an appointment every two weeks to come into the office.

Does Invisalign Work?
With the advent of the newest trays of Invisalign, “Smart Track” and G4 attachments make virtually no orthodontic case that we cannot fix. Many orthodontists choose not to recommend Invisalign simply to cut down on costs and ability to maintain overheads. Invisalign lab fees are very expensive and in today’s competitive market, it is hard to transfer that fee to the patients and the patients acceptance of the fees. For example, if an orthodontist uses Invisalign on a patient, the doctor has to pay Invisalign a large sum, but if the orthodontist does regular braces at the same price, they do not have a lab fee to pay Invisalign. Therefore, they will recommend braces over Invisalign. It is the ugly truth, but doctors must stay in business a well. At Lasting Impressions Dental Spa, we are able to keep our fees lower simply because we are all inclusive, meaning patients who get their Invisalign done at our office usually end up getting their check-ups and other dental work done as well, and will also refer their friends and family. So, if you are in the market for Invisalign, come on in for your consultation and join our family. We have no hidden fees, and we do not nickel and dime our patients.
What is Invisalign’s Smart Track?
Invisalign’s smart track is the newest, clear aligner material from Invisalign. It is the closest thing to a wire that an orthodontist uses to move teeth. It is super soft and super flexible, making it super comfortable. The brilliant thing about Invisalign is that it is able to move teeth faster than tradi
tional braces. This is because the clear aligner puts pressure on each tooth separately in different directions while traditional brackets and wires do not.
Retainers are for life! Yes, really, they are for life. For the first six months after your teeth are straightened, the retainers must be worn almost all the time around 18 hours/day. Then for another 3 months for 12 hours/day, and finally, they can be worn just at night. For the first three to six months the bone holding the teeth may still be in the remodeling stage, and the teeth can move out of alignment very, very fast! They can move much faster than the time it took them to straighten out. We have various retainers in the office. You must be seen by the doctor and consult to see what would work best for you.
