InvisalignFor patients who feel self-conscious about dawning the metallic look that comes with traditional braces, there is another option, which is simultaneously more aesthetically pleasing and comfortable – Invisalign.

The Treatment

Invisalign is a teeth-straightening orthodontic treatment that utilizes a system of clear, custom-made aligners for moving teeth into the correct position. These aligners are made from a flexible plastic, causing them to be more comfortable. Additionally, their clear nature makes them virtually invisible. As a result, you will not only have the benefit of feeling better, but looking better than you might while wearing traditional braces.

Invisalign Can Treat:

  • Overly crowded teeth
  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Crossbites
  • Overbites
  • Underbites

How Does Treatment work?

At the start of your orthodontic journey with Invisalign, your orthodontist will use Invisalign's advanced technology to have a series of clear aligners custom-made to guide your teeth into the proper position. You will wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, 24 hours a day (with the exception of when you are eating, drinking, flossing, or brushing your teeth). As you move through the different sets of aligners (usually 18 to 30 of them), your teeth will gradually shift into the right place – creating that straight smile you’ve always wanted.

Total treatment time usually last somewhere between 6 – 15 months, and requires visits to either our Orlando or Winter Park, FL office every 8 – 10 weeks.

Bonus Benefits

Past the benefit of not having metallic wires or brackets crowding your mouth, there are a few other pluses to be highlighted when considering Invisalign for your orthodontic treatment. 

As Invisalign aligners are removable, they allow you the freedom to eat whatever you want. Unlike with traditional braces, you can still enjoy things like ribs or corn-on-the-cob by simply removing the aligners prior to eating. You can also remove your aligners to brush and floss your teeth (making oral/dental hygiene easier), and for certain special social occasions and pictures too.

Invisalign Teen vs. Traditional Invisalign

There are three key differences between Invisalign Teen and traditional Invisalign treatment. The first is that Invisalign Teen aligners have a “Blue Dot Indicator,” which shows how long each set of aligners has been worn – allowing you, your parents, and your orthodontist to be aware of this vital factor. Second, Invisalign Teen comes with six free replacement aligners in case some get lost or are broken. Finally, Invisalign Teen aligners are designed to accommodate for mouths that are still growing.
