A better life starts with a beautiful smile

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that corrects teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. Crooked teeth and teeth that do not fit together correctly are harder to keep clean, are at risk of being lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease, and cause extra stress on the chewing muscles that can lead to headaches, TMJ syndrome and neck, shoulder and back pain.

INVISALIGN

DENTIST IN WESTON, FL

Invisalign grows every day in popularity as an effective alternative to braces to straighten your teeth. While Invisalign is really good at creating that smile you want, there are certain situations in which Invisalign is not the best solution for your situation, so it is important to start your Invisalign treatment with a free exam in our Dental Office in Weston, FL.

On your first visit our Dentist in Weston will determine whether or not you are a good candidate for treatment with Invisalign. However, it’s good to keep in mind that Invisalign is only for teens and adults. Children who still have baby teeth, or adult teeth that still have to grow a lot do not qualify.

Once our Dental Specialist in Weston, FL determine you are a good candidate for Invisalign, we create records. The records are:

  • Pictures of your teeth and face
  • Dental impressions
  • Set of X-rays

After that, when all your records are ready and we have the case created with the treatment to be followed, we send them to Invisalign with detailed instructions on how we want our teeth to move.

When Invisalign obtains your records, the first thing they do is scan your impressions, in order to have a 3D computer record. In addition, the technicians will move your teeth step by step in the computer model to your final positions.

Invisalign makes the changes, and then we review them again. In general, we need to do this procedure a couple of times to place the teeth exactly where we want them.

The moment we are satisfied with the procedure, and we see how it is that the teeth remain when the treatment is finished, we communicate with Invisalign to make a series of trays (called aligners) and send them to our Dental Office in Weston, FL.  In conclusion, it usually takes 2 to 4 weeks from the time of printing until we return the trays to our office.

You will use a set of Invisalign trays for two weeks at a time. In other words, each tray is created so that the teeth are a little straighter with each tray change. The teeth will move approximately from 1 to 10 mm per tray. To sum up, this puts constant pressure on your teeth, and for two weeks, your teeth will move to match the tray.

Invisalign® Clear Braces Look Better

The metal braces can clearly make the appearance of your mouth and your smile look less attractive. They are clearly visible especially in adults, in addition to the fact that the food can easily get caught without one noticing. Moreover, Invisalign clear braces are practically invisible when you look at a person using Invisalign gives you the impression that they are not wearing braces, thanks to this Invisalign is in great demand because it looks attractive while creating the smile you want.

Invisalign® Can Be Removed When Necessary

Every time one of our specialists performs a procedure with metal braces you should always leave them in place until the treatment is finished. Therefore, it is a process that can last several months, and each day makes it difficult to clean your teeth and maintain good oral hygiene, unlike Invisalign that are easily removable in any occasion that you want, for example, when we want to eat something or drink something you can remove them without any problem.

Invisalign® Straighten Teeth Faster

Any treatment of metal braces can last up to 3 years, it all depends on the amount of adjustments that each patient has to make until all their teeth are the way they want. However, Invisalign can last up to a year and a half depending on what conditions your teeth are in, in some cases it can last only a few months.

Invisalign® Reduce Damage to Teeth and Gums

Metal braces are made of wires and pieces of metal that can affect the inside of your mouth. Also, if the accumulated food is not removed every day can cause a disease in the gums. As a result, Invisalign are safe and comfortable, do not include anything sharp that can affect your gums, and being very easy to clean do not run the same risk as with metal braces to acquire some type of gum disease.

Frequently Asked Questions

The virtually invisible aligners, which are made of a thermoplastic material uniquely developed for the Invisalign treatment plan, look similar to teeth whitening trays. Consequently, a series of Invisalign aligners are custom made for you, to move your teeth in the sequence.

Over the course of treatment, you will be supplied with a series of aligners. As a result, each aligner will make slight adjustments to tooth position, a process that is mapped out in advance by our Specialized Dentist in Weston, FL, specifically for your situation. When the aligners are placed on the teeth, they cause the teeth to gradually shift from their current position. After that, approximately two weeks, you will begin using the next set of aligners, which will continue the teeth straightening process.

Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. Therefore, no one may even notice that you’re wearing them, making Invisalign a seamless fit with your lifestyle. Also, Invisalign aligners are removable. For the best results and a timely outcome, aligners should be worn for 20 to 22 hours per day. However, unlike with braces, you have the flexibility to remove your aligners to eat and drink what you want during treatment. And you can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would, for fresh breath and good oral hygiene. In addition, Invisalign allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start, so you can see how your straightened teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

The length of treatment depends on the severity of your case and can only be determined by our Specialized Dentist in Weston, FL. However, the average case takes about 12 months for adults. The length of time necessary for a teen patient may vary and can be determined by your doctor.

Your doctor will schedule regular appointments usually about once every four to six weeks. The goal of these visits is to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.

Because medical benefits differ significantly from policy to policy, you should review your personal coverage plan. However, in general, if a patient has orthodontic coverage, Invisalign should be covered to the same extent as conventional braces.
