Transform your smile with Invisalign® teeth straightening
If you are in Pembroke Pines, Florida, and are researching your options for straightening your teeth with clear aligners, you probably already know how a nice smile and straight teeth can be life-changing. For some individuals, achieving a perfectly straight smile requires orthodontic treatment. In the past, this usually meant metal hardware that was unsightly and uncomfortable. However, thanks to Invisalign® clear aligners offered by Dr. Milton Ruiz at Pines Dental Associates, you can now achieve a beautiful smile without ever having to use metal brackets, wires, and bands.
How do Invisalign® clear aligners work?
Invisalign® clear aligners are used to correct mild misalignment and malocclusion issues by moving your teeth to a straighter position with consistent, gentle force. In terms of the effects achieved, Invisalign® is similar to traditional braces, but the similarity ends there.
- Invisalign® uses a progressive series of removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth.
- The aligners are fabricated using modern 3D printing technology.
- Invisalign® aligners are virtually invisible – no one will notice you’re wearing them!
To picture what the aligners look like, they are similar to a traditional mouthguard that athletes wear when playing sports. However, Invisalign® aligners are much thinner and more discreet.
The Invisalign® process
The Invisalign® process is surprisingly easy and efficient. Dr. Milton Ruiz and his team don’t rely on only standard x-rays and impressions — getting started with Invisalign® involves significantly more detailed imaging of your teeth and mouth. Using advanced computer software, a map of the current state of your teeth is created, which is then expanded into a step-by-step animation that demonstrates how your teeth will move as treatment progresses. This allows you to see on a computer screen exactly what your smile transformation will look like before treatment even begins!
The entire process of straightening your teeth with Invisalign® will take about 6 to 18 months for completion, after which you will be provided with a retainer to maintain your beautiful results.
