Invisalign in Coral Springs, FL

Some people are fortunate enough to have naturally well-aligned teeth and an attractive smile, but many are not. Misaligned teeth and overbites are quite common in the United States. They can be easily corrected through orthodontics and cosmetic dentistry.

 

Dr. Santana, a preferred Invisalign provider, will assess the current state of your teeth to determine what kind of treatment you need.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign was first introduced in the early 2000s and quickly became a popular alternative to traditional metal braces. It is made from a clear BPA-free plastic and is nearly invisible. You need to wear them for at least 12 months to move your teeth back in place. This is a shorter treatment span compared to traditional braces.

 

Our dentist will provide a series of aligners that are custom designed for your teeth. You need to wear each aligner for two weeks before switching to the next one. Invisalign gently pushes your teeth to the desired position. Most people get the desired result within 12 months. Dr. Santana will check the position of your teeth periodically to see whether you need additional aligners.

 

Invisalign Process

We will first take a dental impression of your teeth and conduct a 3D scan of your intraoral cavity. The Invisalign lab will use these images and details to create a set of tailored Invisalign aligners for you.

The first aligner is closest to the dimensions of your natural teeth. Every consequent aligner has a slightly different shape to coerce your teeth into the desired position. These aligner trays are made carefully, based on precise calculations taken using sophisticated software.

It is essential to maintain your teeth and the aligners well to avoid damage, infections, and gum injury. Invisalign is ideal for both teens and adults as it allows them to socialize with confidence and not worry about unsightly metal braces.

Invisalign treatment may not work for people with severely misaligned teeth. Dr. Santana will recommend alternative treatments if needed. If you want to know more about Invisalign treatment, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at Optimum Dentistry in Coral Springs, FL today!
