Invisalign Clear Aligners Might Be the Right Solution for You
Want to straighten your teeth without the hassle of traditional metal braces? Invisalign may be the ideal solution for you. Patients everywhere trust these clear, custom-fit aligners to enhance their smile in just half the time compared to other treatments. Learn how Invisalign works and whether or not it could be the perfect treatment for your smile.
Having a Treatable Smile
Invisalign can help most patients fix the appearance of their teeth. To determine whether you’re a candidate for clear aligners, schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Assi by calling our Coral Springs office at (954) 603-3508.
According to the Invisalign website, cases where their aligners work include:
- Crowded Teeth
- Overbite & Underbite
- Tooth Gaps
- Open Bite
- Malocclusion (Bad Bite)
Straighten Your Teeth Fast
When you choose to treat your smile with Invisalign instead of traditional metal braces, you’ll experience a shorter treatment process without sacrificing the end results. Our custom, clear aligners are 50 percent faster in correcting your teeth thanks to SmartTrack® material.
Furthermore, Dr. Maya Assi, our Coral Springs Invisalign Preferred Provider, will customize your Invisalign treatment by sending you a new set of aligners every couple of weeks. Each new package of aligners gradually shifts different areas of your smile.
Nearly Invisible Aligners
Invisalign aligners are clear, meaning they’re invisible to onlookers. Because nobody will notice your aligners, you can continue to show off your smile without having to deal with the embarrassment of bulky metal brackets and wires. These clear aligners will allow you to fix your teeth while also being confident in any social situation.
Eat the Foods You Want
Invisalign aligners are easily removable, as they are shaped to the natural groves of your teeth. Unlike traditional braces, which are secured to your teeth through a series of brackets and wires, our clear aligners allow you to enjoy the foods you want without having to worry about them being caught on your fixture. Simply remove them before a meal and reinsert them after brushing your teeth to ensure that there are no bits of food left in your mouth.
An Easy & Comfortable Process
Invisalign aligners are custom-made from their patented SmartTrack® material, ensuring a unique fit that’s comfortable to wear. Since there are no metal wires or brackets to scrape the inside of your mouth, Invisalign is a less painful treatment than braces.
Dr. Assi recommends wearing your aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours a day. While your smile will have to adjust at first, after a couple of days you won’t notice that you’re wearing an aligner. Unlike metal braces, nearly no changes will be made to your current lifestyle.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Invisalign® right for me?
Invisalign is the perfect solution for patients who are looking for a virtually invisible and painless method to improve their smile, as well as correct any cosmetic issues. If you’re a candidate for metal braces, you may also qualify for Invisalign. This revolutionary treatment can fix almost all orthodontic issues without disrupting your daily routine.
How will I know if I’m a candidate for Invisalign®?
During your initial consultation with Dr. Assi, she’ll determine whether or not you’re a candidate for Invisalign treatment. This includes evaluating your overall oral health, as well as what orthodontic problem needs correcting. Based on this information, she’ll develop a treatment plan customized to your unique case.
How long will Invisalign® treatment last?
The exact length of time of your Invisalign treatment depends on the severity of your individual needs. Each set of your custom aligners will need to be replaced around every two weeks, and most patients require 20 to 30 sets. Treatment typically lasts between 12 to 18 months.
Will I need to wear a retainer after Invisalign® treatment?
Most dentists recommend that anyone who has completed an orthodontic treatment, whether with metal braces or Invisalign, should use a retainer to prevent teeth from shifting back to their original positions. Dr. Assi will assess the progress of your treatment to determine if you require a retainer after undergoing Invisalign. Our staff will also be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about retainers.
