Orthodontic Treatment in Lakewood, CA


At Lakewood Dental Arts, we're proud to help patients throughout Lakewood, CA and the surrounding areas achieve healthy, beautiful smiles through orthodontic and dental treatment. Our practice treats patients of all ages with high-quality orthodontic care, and we offer a wide variety of treatments to suit a diverse range of patient needs. Traditional metal braces are still the most popular treatment we offer – but they're far from the only option, and Invisalign is one of the most exciting alternatives.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary alternative treatment to braces that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten the teeth instead of metal brackets and wires. Invisalign aligners are transparent, completely removable, and custom-tailored to fit directly onto the dental arch – so once they're in place, they're virtually invisible. Invisalign is also completely removable and easy to take out to eat, drink, brush, and floss, making it one of the most convenient orthodontic treatments on the market. Best of all, almost anyone is a candidate for Invisalign – it can treat all but the most severe orthodontic problems.

The Invisalign Treatment Process

Treatment with Invisalign is a simple, straightforward process. It all begins at your initial appointment, where Dr. Irene Fowell will perform a comprehensive orthodontic evaluation of your teeth, jaw, and smile. If you and Dr. Fowell decide that Invisalign is the best choice for your treatment, she'll then create a comprehensive treatment plan and have your own series of aligners custom-manufactured to fit your teeth.

You'll wear each pair of aligners for about 22 hours a day, then switch to the next set after two weeks of use. Every time you switch to a new pair of aligners, your teeth will be closer to their final positions. Once you finish with your last pair, you'll have a gorgeous new smile that's yours to keep for a lifetime!

The Benefits Of Invisalign

Thanks to its unique design, Invisalign comes with a number of advantages compared to traditional braces. A few of the benefits of Invisalign include:

  • Because the aligners are virtually invisible, no one will notice you're straightening your teeth.
  • You don't have to deal with dietary restrictions and can enjoy your favorite foods throughout treatment.
  • Oral hygiene is easy – there's no need to fuss with floss threaders.
  • It's easy to remove the aligners to keep them clean.
  • You'll have less frequent visits to our Lakewood orthodontic office than with braces.
