Invisalign 101Instead of hardware cemented to teeth, Invisalign uses a series of computer-designed plastic aligners to progressively nudge teeth into attractive alignment.
Dr. Son takes digital images and impressions of your mouth. Computer software converts that data into a detailed treatment plan of aligners. David Son DDS uses the next-generation in what is widely regarded as the most precise scanning technology on the market: the iTero intraoral scanner. Dr. Son uses this noninvasive handheld device, iTero Element, to “scan” your mouth comfortably and efficiently.
Images that are captured and digitized are brilliantly clear and lifelike. Together, you and Dr. Son can view your virtual transformation on a computer monitor before treatment actually begins.
Optimized for Invisalign, accurate iTero technology for treatment planning is important because it results in:
- Fewer fit issues
- Reliable outcomes
- Optimal patient experience
Benefits of aligners
- Clear - Aligners are transparent. Most people won’t realize you are wearing them.
- Comfortable - The plastic is smooth, with no hardware to irritate tissues. Plus, there are no appointments for aggressive wire tightening.
- Convenient - Brief six-week visits let Dr. Son monitor your progress, adjusting the treatment plan if necessary.
- Clean - Aligners are removable. You take them out to eat so no food is trapped, and you brush and floss normally.
- Captivating - With Invisalign there’s no mystery, like waiting for the big reveal when braces come off. You enjoy improvement in real time, as it occurs.

Why They Choose Us
Reviewed by Scott R. “What will likely matter most to people, Dr. Son is the absolute best at making sure you feel ZERO pain. His numbing process is the equivalent of breathing. You just don't know when the process has started and then your gums are numb. Sounds to good to be true. That's the feeling I get every single time I go through the process.
Dr. Son is very patient and genuinely gives off a positive comforting energy. I've been maybe 7 times and each time I leave grateful.”
Reviewed by Joe M. “Dr Son is a very skilled and knowledgable dentist. Better yet, he is friendly and you can tell he cares. His staff all made me feel comfortable and well taken care of. From the moment I came in for my first visit 4 years ago I knew I had found a great office that I could count on for my dental care.”
Reviewed by Emily C. “Amazing! I was looking last year for a holistic minded dentist for major work on my teeth. After hours and hours of searching and speaking to offices mainly in LA, I found Dr Son. His prices were much better than the holistic dentists in LA and his attention to detail and kind heart put me at ease.
I literally almost fell asleep while having a crown put in, it was that pleasant. (I used the gas and the mouth piece that rests gently to keep mouth open while they work and act as a suction. It’s a genius invention that I haven’t seen at other offices I consulted with.)
His office staff and assistants are top notch and the hygienist corrected me on several habits no other hygienist had addressed in detail which I know will save my teeth from future work.
I suggest getting in with them before they become to hard to get a new patient appt. (That’s what happened with my holistic Endocrinoligist;)
Thanks Dr Son!”
