Invisalign is a high-quality orthodontic treatment designed to straighten your teeth without the wires, metal brackets, and appliances associated with conventional braces. These BPA-free plastic aligners work much in the same way as traditional braces, by straightening your teeth gradually, but they are discreet enough to look practically invisible to the naked eye.
What makes Invisalign unique is that each tray of clear aligners is custom-made to reposition your teeth little by little. This is because the team uses an iTero Element® scanner to take highly accurate images of your entire mouth to design your perfect smile with Invisalign’s state-of-the-art software.
The Cooper City Family Dentistry team recommends Invisalign to treat a broad range of cases, including:
While traditional braces are more effective at treating complex cases, Invisalign is perfect for those with one or more of the above problems.
There are plenty of Invisalign benefits to consider before choosing the right orthodontic treatment for your smile and budget, such as:
Traditional braces take up to three years to improve your smile, while Invisalign clear aligners provide comparable results in as little as six to 18 months.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign clear aligners are entirely removable. They must be worn for approximately 22 hours a day, so you can take them out to eat, drink, and more.
Those with traditional braces are often at a higher risk of developing tooth decay, as it’s difficult to properly clean fixed braces. Because Invisalign is removable, you can easily take your aligners out to brush and floss after meals.
One of the most common complaints about traditional braces is that the metal brackets tend to cut up your cheeks over time. Smooth and seamless, clear aligners feel exactly like your natural teeth, so you never have to worry about feeling uncomfortable throughout the day.
Once you decide that Invisalign is the right option for you, the Cooper City Family Dentistry team takes 3D scans of your mouth to create highly accurate images of your teeth. These images are then used to design your individualized treatment plan with Invisalign’s cutting-edge software.
Based on your unique treatment plan, your dentist gives you a new set of clear aligners approximately every two weeks, monitoring your progress every six weeks. As time goes on, you should notice small, gradual changes in your smile. Invisalign gives the team the opportunity to tell you exactly what to expect at each stage, and adjust your plan as needed.
