Are you looking for an Invisalign dentist in Melbourne Florida?
Our Invisalign Clear Braces can help straighten your teeth without all the metal that goes along with traditional braces.
This is a modern approach to straighten crooked teeth that uses a series of aligners that are made specifically for you. The aligners are made of smooth and comfortable plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. These tray-like aligners will gently shift your teeth into place over time. The best part about these clear braces is that there are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. Every two weeks, you put in a new set of aligners until your treatment has been completed.
HERE’S WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
If you believe that Invisalign braces are the right option for your needs, you still need to have your teeth assessed by your dentist. The provider will review your teeth to determine the degree of misalignment. If your teeth are excessively crooked or you have severe bite problems, traditional braces may be a better option. Invisalign is usually reserved for people with moderate misalignment issues.
Once the dentist determines that Invisalign braces are suitable for your needs, an impression of your mouth is obtained. In addition, 3D imagery is used to determine how your teeth will likely change throughout the course of your treatment with Invisalign.
You wear each set of aligners for about 2 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.
You’ll visit your Invisalign dentist about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9 – 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
INVISALIGN HAS ADVANTAGES
Invisalign does have advantages when compared to traditional metal braces. Here are a few of them:
INVISALIGN IS FOR TEENS AND ADULTS
Invisalign is usually only prescribed for teenagers and adults. The system is not typically suitable for children because it requires the patient’s palate to be fully grown.
