At Calabasas Dental Spa, we were one of the first to embrace Invisalign® clear therapy, nearly invisible teeth aligners. We’re experts in this advanced technology that gradually and gently shifts your teeth into the proper place. Invisalign® is a very predictable system that allows you to see how your teeth will look once the treatment is completed.
And just as important, your entire bite is improved giving you the best chance to protect your teeth, prevent gum recession and bone loss, reduce the need for root canals, and more. It’s a significantly better treatment than these do-it-at-home solutions that provide very little professional application and supervision from a properly trained and experienced dentist.
Also, new studies confirm that by expanding the dental arches during the Invisalign® treatment, we can successfully eliminate snoring and treat Sleep Apnea as well. Calabasas Dental Spa is also a digital impressions practice using the 3D iTero® Element Intraoral Scanner that eliminates the need for messy impressions.
Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and designed for comfort, so they won’t interfere with your daily life activities such as speaking, eating or playing sports. They can be easily removed when necessary for brushing and flossing, making them much more convenient than traditional braces.
We understand that many patients worry about how long it takes for orthodontic treatments to be completed. With Invisalign, the length of your treatment will vary based on the severity of your case and how well you follow your doctor’s instructions. Generally, Invisalign treatment can be completed in as little as six to nine months, but some cases may take longer.

No, Invisalign aligners are designed for comfort and should not be painful when worn. However, it is normal to experience some discomfort when switching between aligners or after adjustments have been made during your treatment.
You should wear your aligners for at least 22 hours each day in order to achieve the best results. It is important that you follow the instructions provided by your doctor and remove them only when necessary, such as for brushing and flossing.
