Look good while you straighten with Invisalign treatment in Pembroke Pines, FL
Have you dreamed of having straighter teeth for a more appealing smile? Maybe, though, you are not excited about wearing orthodontic hardware for a few years. If you are in Cooper City, Miramar, or Hollywood and looking for Invisalign near me, you have come to the right place. Dr. Milton Ruiz and his team at Pines Dental Associates in Pembroke Pines, FL love helping teen and adult patients get straight, attractive smiles with the Invisalign clear aligners system.
About invisible aligners
Teeth straightening has traditionally been accomplished with brackets, bands, and wires. While that method is still sometimes the best course of treatment, many patients achieve great results without hardware. Invisalign moves teeth with a progressive series of removable aligners, designed from digital impressions of your mouth and fabricated using contemporary 3D printing technology.
When Invisalign was initially approved by the FDA in 1998, it was primarily considered a solution for cosmetic straightening. However, the technology has continued to advance. Today, patients benefit from Invisalign bite correction, and even cases of significantly crooked and crowded teeth can be candidates for treatment.
Invisalign® at Pines Dental Associates - Dr. Milton Ruiz
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is a clear aligner that goes over your teeth and moves your teeth over a period of time.
It’s a good solution if you don’t want to have metal brackets. They are clear so that nobody will notice it.
How is the Invisalign® procedure done?
You will come to the office, take an impression of your teeth and plan what we want your teeth to look after the procedure is done.
We will have aligners made, and you will wear these aligners for two weeks. Every two weeks, you will change it to a different aligner until the desired outcome is achieved.
Invisalign® is a great alternative to brace, especially for people that do not want to have a metal look in the mouth.
Call us and make an appointment to get the straight smile you always wanted.
