Having performed hundreds of invisalign treatments, Dr. Vickie Greenberg and her staff are invisalign experts!
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. Invisalign is made with highly effective 3-D computer imaging technology that allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start.
You can see how your straight teeth will look when your Invisalign treatment is complete!
How Does Invisalign® Work?
You wear each series of aligners for about 1 to 2 weeks, and remove them only to brush and floss your teeth and during mealtimes. Plan to wear your Invisalign aligners at least 22 hours daily. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move gradually until they have straightened to the final position Dr. Greenberg has prescribed.
You’ll visit Dr. Greenberg’s office in Altadena about once every 6 to 8 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. On average, Invisalign treatments last from 9 to 15 months and our patients wear between 18 and 30 aligners, but both numbers vary from case to case. Regular appointments usually last 60 minutes. When you come visit us for your first appointment, plan on staying with us for about 90 minutes to fill out paperwork and complete your scans.
Since Invisalign aligners are removable, you can easily continue to eat your favorite foods without wondering if they’ll stick to your braces. Brushing and flossing are much less of a hassle, too! Just take out your aligners, and put them back in afterward. Invisalign is also much more comfortable than braces, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. No metal and wires usually means you spend less time in Dr. Greenberg’s office getting adjustments.

We are Committed to Providing Superior Comfort and Technology!
At Dr. Greenberg’s office, we are dedicated to providing a comfortable experience to all our patients. To support our committment to our patients, we invest in the most up-to-date technology available to us. Before your treatment begins, we need to take impressions of your mouth and teeth. Before, we would use clay impressions. Our patients complained that the experience was uncomfortable, and that the clay tasted bad. Now, we only use 100% digital imaging impressions courtesy of iTero™! No more gooey and messy impressions to send to Invisalign! With iTero, we can take more precise digital impressions and see results that much sooner!
How Will I Pay for Invisalign Treatment?
If you are wondering if investing in your smile with Invisalign is worth planning out the budget, you are not alone! At Greenberg Orthodontics, we will do all that we can to create flexible payment options for you. If orthodontic care is included in your dental insurance, that’s great!
We accept most insurances, and most PPO insurances cover 50% of your orthodontic treatment. The rest of the cost is organized into installments at no interest. For more information, ask us any financial questions during your free consultation!
