What would you do for a straight, healthy smile? Would you consider metal braces but think they're a hassle and look too obvious? Why not let Invisalign clear aligners remake your crooked teeth? Custom-designed by your dentists at Allure Smile Center in Miami Lakes, FL, these orthodontic appliances deliver the appearance, function, and oral health you've always wanted. Here's what Dr. Ana Maderal-Cozard, Dr. Borges, and Dr. Jose Garri say about Invisalign.
The Invisalign system has delivered healthier, straighter smiles for more than 20 years. Different from conventional ceramic or metal braces with their obvious and irritating brackets and wires, Invisalign aligners are thin, comfortable and almost invisible. Fabricated in 18 to 30 pairs, these appliances correct a long list of smile issues such as:
- Tooth rotation and tipping
- Protruding front teeth
Removable for brushing, flossing, and meals, the aligners are easily maintained. They're worn 20 to 22 hours a day to keep treatment plans progressing, and they cause none of the oral irritations traditional braces are known for. Patients keep with their usual healthy diets and need not exclude celery, bagels, or other foods typically off-limits to people with conventional braces.
Getting and maintaining your appliances
Most older teens and adults with healthy teeth and gums qualify for treatment with Invisalign appliances.
Your dentist at Allure Smile Center in Miami Lakes uses oral examination, digital X-rays, and a three-dimensional scan to understand your orthodontic problem and to formulate your care plan. Then, the Invisalign technician creates the appliances to fit snugly over your top and bottom teeth. These aligners exert gentle physical forces to re-position your teeth.
Likely, you'll come to the office every four to six weeks for simple progress checks and to pick-up your next aligner pairs in the treatment sequence. At home, you'll remove your aligners to brush, floss, and eat. As a special bonus, patients can take them out for special occasions such as weddings and job interviews. All in all, orthodontics with Invisalign takes less time and produces outstanding results.
