One of the treatments Florida Smiles Dental offers, especially for adults who want to maintain a more professional appearance, is Invisalign. If you have minor to moderate alignment problems, Invisalign is worth considering. They are made of clear, nearly invisible plastic so that your orthodontic gear can go unnoticed by your colleagues.
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective.
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. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your dentist’s office getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
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 the final position your doctor has prescribed. You’ll visit our practice about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time typically lasts nine to 15 months, and the number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both numbers will vary from case to case.
Consider Invisalign to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted – without braces. A consultation with your dentist can determine if Invisalign is right for you.
Dr. Donald Fox, Orthodontist/ Board Certified, will discuss all options with you for your orthodontic treatment. If you and Dr. Fox determine that Invisalign are the correct and preferred treatment, Dr. Fox will set up a customized treatment plan especially for you and your needs.
Based on your individual treatment plan, a series of custom-made, clear aligners is then created specifically for you. These aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable, BPA-free plastic that won’t irritate your cheeks and gums like traditional metal braces often do. Simply wear them throughout the day, and remove them when you eat or to brush and floss your teeth. As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth gently and gradually begin to shift into place. And because they’re virtually invisible, most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them.
