Westlake Village, CA (PRWEB) October 29, 2012
Dr. Philip Shindler DDS, Westlake Village Invisalign provider, now offers Invisalign aligners for his patients who need corrections to their bite or to the alignment of their teeth. These aligners correct these problems in a way that is similar to traditional metal braces, but without the wire and brackets.
The process of being fitted with the aligners is straightforward. First, Dr. Shindler, Westlake Village dentist, creates a cast of the teeth, which he sends to a laboratory. The lab creates a set of aligners and mails them back to Dr. Shindler. Then, Dr. Shindler checks the aligners for fit. If the aligners fit correctly, the patient wears the aligners until the teeth have shifted completely into place. Each aligner is worn for 2 week, before moving to the next aligner. Invisalign aligners gradually move the teeth to their positions.
These aligners have many benefits over traditional metal braces. First, because the aligners are transparent, they are all but invisible to the casual observer. The aligners are also removable, which makes brushing and flossing easier, as well as makes it possible for the patient to continue eating foods that become caught in metal braces such as corn on the cob or barbecue.
Dr. Shindler, Westlake Village cosmetic dentist, also provides many other cosmetic dental services, such as teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental veneers, and dental bridges. In addition, he provides regular check-ups and cleanings, filling cavities, and placing inlays and onlays. He also provides preventative treatments, such as night guards designed to prevent damage from teeth grinding and CariFree, a preventative program that can reduce the incidence of cavities by up to 85%.
