Have you always wanted a straight smile, but do not want to further add to your insecurities with brackets and wires? You are not out of options. We have the solution you need with Invisalign in Ormond Beach. Your teeth are moved into their ideal position using a virtually undetectable treatment. You will enjoy a discreet and convenient option to give you the healthy, lasting results you want.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Traditional braces rely on brackets and wires to pull your teeth into position. While the treatment is effective, it is highly noticeable and comes with certain disadvantages, like diet restrictions and irritation. As an alternative, teens and adults have come to prefer Invisalign.
Impressions of your mouth are taken to create a series of clear aligners. They are worn over your teeth to gradually move them. You must wear them for at least 22 hours per day, switching to the next in the series as recommended by your dentist. On average, it takes about 12 months to complete your treatment.
Benefits of Invisalign
The clear, customizable aligners allow you to enjoy several benefits that are not possible with traditional braces, such as:
- Nearly invisible to remain confident during your treatment.
- Removable for easy oral hygiene.
- No dietary restrictions.
- Shorter treatment time.
- No irritation to the inside of the lips or cheeks.
- Comfortable and secure fit.
- Less time in the dental chair because no appointments for adjustments are needed.
Am I a Candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign can treat several issues; however, you will require a consultation to ensure it is the right solution for you. It can be used to fix gapped, rotated, tilted, or overcrowded teeth, but there are some limitations. In addition, Invisalign can be used to treat certain bite issues, like an open bite.
You must also have good oral health are remain committed to your dental hygiene. You must also follow our recommendations to use your aligners correctly.
The Invisalign System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with 100-year-old science of dentistry. The aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your dentist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit in your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan.
Your first step is to visit our office to determine if Invisalign is right for you. After sending precise treatment instructions, Invisalign uses advanced computer technology to translate the instructions into a sequence of finely calibrated aligners—as few as 12 or as many as 48.
Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth begin to gradually move—week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then, you will be smiling like you never have before!
