Five Reasons To Say Yes to Invisalign for Straighter Teeth
When it comes to your smile, straight is a feature that most of our patients in Fort Lauderdale, FL, desire. However, many have crooked, misaligned, or crowded teeth that need to be corrected. At Kodish-Perez Dental Group, we offer Invisalign® to patients looking to straighten their teeth discreetly. Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear braces to realign teeth to look straighter. When you are unhappy about your smile, one of our dentists can determine if you’re a candidate for this treatment.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign can fix many orthodontic concerns. An Invisalign dentist uses advanced technology to digitally map out a treatment process. Invisalign aligners are trays that gradually and continuously straighten your teeth. They are custom made and hope to improve oral function. The teeth are gently and gradually moved to their desired positions through personalized aligners that are undetectable in the mouth. Each set is worn for up to 22 hours a day. Every week or two, your trays are switched to the next ones to keep your teeth moving steadily. Best of all, there are no dietary limitations, unlike metal braces.
Who is a candidate for Invisalign?
Ideal candidates for Invisalign include those with:
Gaps or spaces in their teeth
Overcrowding or overlapping teeth
Invisalign is a great option for those who don’t want a lengthy orthodontic treatment. Teens and adults have both seen success using this discreet alternative for orthodontics. Clear braces offer a faster path to a straighter smile. They also eliminate the feel of bulky hardware and are only removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. Straightening your teeth makes it easier to brush and floss more efficiently, which improves oral health.
Reasons to consider Invisalign
At Kodish-Perez Dental Group, we are proud to bring our patients in Fort Lauderdale, FL the benefits of Invisalign treatment. While traditional braces can be a great orthodontic option, Invisalign has many advantages too, including:
Easy to wear: Many of our patients rave about how easy and comfortable these clear trays are to wear. The plastic material is computer-generated to conform to your teeth and is smooth. Each tray is secured with resin buttons that are bonded to specific teeth to hold it in place properly.
Undetectable: These trays are less noticeable than traditional metal braces.
Removable: Your trays can be removed to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Traditional braces are known for allowing food to build up, which is detrimental to your oral health. However, your Invisalign trays can be taken out, which reduces plaque buildup.
Improved oral health: Since your aligners can be removed, patients see better oral hygiene. Straightening teeth with Invisalign helps reduce your risk of tooth decay or gum disease.
Faster treatment: Invisalign treatment usually takes less time to complete than metal braces. Depending on the severity of your oral health situation, Invisalign treatment takes anywhere from 6 – 18 months.
