Straighten your teeth discreetly with Invisalign® clear aligners in Pembroke Pines, FL
At Pines Dental Associates in Pembroke Pines, FL, patients tell us all the time that they’d love straighter teeth, but they don’t want to go through years of orthodontic treatment with unsightly and uncomfortable metal braces. With Invisalign® clear aligners, that dream can become a reality – for most patients, within just about a year!
What is Invisalign and how does it work?
Invisalign clear aligners are a modern way to straighten teeth without the metal brackets and wires that are associated with traditional braces. With Invisalign, you simply wear clear trays that are nearly invisible to others over your teeth for 20 to 22 hours a day. Every two weeks you switch out your current set of aligners for the next set in the series. Each set gradually shifts your teeth into the proper position for a healthy bite and a straight smile.
Invisalign is a versatile orthodontic treatment that can be used to correct the following issues:
- Crooked teeth
- Small gaps between teeth
- Mild overcrowding
In some cases, patients with severe misalignment, spacing, or bite issues will benefit from traditional forms of orthodontic treatment. Before recommending Invisalign, Dr. Ruiz will perform a thorough evaluation to determine whether you are a good candidate. If you are, he will use advanced computerized planning software that enables you to see what your results will look like – before you even begin treatment!
Why patients and dentists love Invisalign
Patients and dentists alike love Invisalign! Patients love that they can remove the aligners to eat and drink their favorite foods and beverages, which means there are no restrictions on what you eat for the duration of your treatment. Dentists love that you can remove the aligners for brushing and flossing, so your oral hygiene will not suffer from trying to clean around brackets like it can with traditional braces. In addition, because the aligners are removable, it is easy for both you and Dr. Ruiz to see your results as your treatment progresses. This enables Dr. Ruiz to make any adjustments that are necessary to help you achieve your best smile.
The aligners are made from a comfortable, BPA-free plastic so you will not experience any poking or rubbing, and most patients adjust to having the aligners in their mouth while they are speaking and drinking water within just a few days. The average treatment time for Invisalign is 12 months, which in many cases, is shorter than traditional braces. Throughout the duration of your treatment, you will come into the office for quick and easy check-ups, and there are never any wires to be tightened or bracket positions to be changed.
