Northridge Dentist, Dr. Assili, Explains Invisalign Treatment Process and Its Benefits

Dr. Assili describes Invisalign treatment and what it entails.

    NORTHRIDGE, CA, August 22, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Northridge dentist, Dr. Assili, explains Invisalign, including its treatment process and benefits. Invisalign is one of the most popular orthodontic treatments today, thanks to its clear plastic aligners. Although many patients choose Invisalign for the discretion it offers, the treatment is also more comfortable, better for oral health, and faster acting compared to metal braces. Both the design and the individually tailored treatment plan are to thank for these advantages.

Patients who are interested in Invisalign first visit Dr. Assili for a consultation to verify that they are eligible. If an exam shows that Invisalign is an option, Dr. Assili can begin the planning process by taking photos, X-rays, and bite impressions. The information from these records is used to make a treatment plan and aligner designs, which are then sent to the Invisalign lab for production. Patients return to Dr. Assili a few weeks later to start wearing their first stage of aligners. During the treatment period, which lasts an average of fifteen months, patients return every two weeks to have their progress checked and receive new aligners that will bring them closer to their final results. Finally, patients receive Invisalign retainers that will keep the teeth in their new positions.

In addition to offering Invisalign, Dr. Assili performs a full range of dental treatments. These include general dental procedures, such as tooth-colored fillings, as well as cosmetic treatments, such as teeth whitening, veneers, and smile makeovers. Tooth replacements, such as dental implants and dental bridges, are also available. Dr. Assili also offers the latest laser procedures, dental sedation, pediatric dentistry, and dental treatments for sleep apnea and TMJ.

Dr. Ramin Assili graduated from California State University, Northridge, in 1988 with his Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry before going on to study at UCLA, where he earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 1992. During his career, Dr. Assili has also completed postgraduate training in cosmetic dentistry and implantology, which he studied at the world-renowned Misch International Implant Institute in Seattle. A reputable member of several organizations in his profession, Dr. Assili offers patients specialized care for sleep apnea and TMJ, along with many options for oral health and aesthetic maintenance.
