Here at Rifkin Raanan, we have helped numerous patients of all ages enhance their smile and bite using Invisalign, the industry standard in discreet, removable dental alignment devices.
Invisalign are clear teeth aligners that are easy to remove and extremely discreet. They offer the same benefits as traditional braces with the added benefit of being virtually undetectable by others. This makes them a highly desirable and viable option for adult patients who want to avoid the aesthetic drawbacks of braces or simply cannot wear braces for reasons related to their line of work.

Invisalign provides a method of straightening teeth without the inconvenience and discomfort that can come with wearing heavy, metal braces. Additionally, they are easy to remove for cleaning and do not require any dietary restrictions.The benefits of Invisalign can be summed as follows:
The Invisalign process begins with a consultation right here in our Beverly Hills dental office. During this process, our expert team will assess whether Invisalign is right for you. If this is the right procedure for you, we will begin by taking detailed impressions, photos and X-rays of your mouth.
These will be used to produce a 3D model of your mouth out of which clear aligners, called “trays” will be created.
Before your trays are finalized we work with the manufacturers of Invisalign to make sure all the details are exactly right and your teeth alignment goals and needs are properly factored in. Once we’re happy, your first set of trays are produced.
Each set of trays is worn for approximately two weeks and only removed for eating, brushing and flossing. Once that set of trays has done its job, you will move on to the next set, each on gradually and incrementally moving your teeth until they reach the optimal position.
The overall length of the process varies depending upon how much movement is needed to properly align your smile. In some cases, it may be necessary for us to remove teeth to make room for the alignment process.
