With over a decade of experience and hundreds of successful cases, Dr. Mark Garlington is your best choice for orthodontic treatment with Invisalign in the Long Beach, CA community.
Consider Invisalign to get the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted — without braces. Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth and give you the confidence you deserve. Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem!
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions.
Choose a Smile Specialist: Dr. Garlington!
Dr. Garlington is a top Invisalign Elite Provider, meaning that he treats nearly 200 Invisalign cases per year, which is more than most doctors have treated in a lifetime! He also attends regular Invisalign trainings and study clubs to learn how to treat the most complex Invisalign cases. Because of this, many patients are pleased to hear they are excellent Invisalign candidates, even if previously told otherwise. In fact, Dr. Garlington is in the top 1% of the world for Invisalign providers!
During your initial consultation, Dr. Garlington will personally meet with you to discuss your goals and treatment options in detail. He will explain how Invisalign works and how long treatment will take, and will create a customized plan to meet your needs. Our goal is to provide you with excellent oral health and a beautiful smile while using the most modern techniques and technology to ensure that your treatment outcome is the very best it can possibly be.
Why choose Invisalign?
Utilizing modern techniques, such as Invisalign and AcceleDent®, allows us to provide exceptional results in much less time than traditional approaches. One of Invisalign’s biggest advantages over traditional fixed braces is that it doesn’t create any unwanted tooth movement, resulting in longer treatment time. In combination with AcceleDent, Invisalign treatment time can be cut in half! In fact, many of our Invisalign patients can be treated a year or less!
Invisalign patients are able to enjoy more freedom away from the office. There are less adjustment appointments needed with Invisalign and almost NO emergency appointments. In most cases, we normally see our Invisalign patients every eight to ten weeks.
Retention is just as important as the Invisalign treatment itself. Without some sort of retention, your teeth will naturally begin to return to their previous position. Our goal is to provide the highest quality retainers that offer you the most comfort. We want you to enjoy your new smile without having to worry about relapse and additional appointments. We proudly recommend Vivera™ as a clear, removable, prescription-based retainer solution.
Our team is passionate about using Invisalign and improving your journey to a healthy, beautiful smile. Dr. Garlington’s experience, use of digital technology, and dedication to learning has helped him master the Invisalign appliance to ensure you will have an excellent result.
