Invisalign® Braces

Straighten Your Teeth with Invisalign® Braces

invisalignThe word “braces” brings to mind thoughts of months of discomfort, awkwardness, and food restrictions. But if this is all you think of when you hear “braces,” it’s time to learn more about Invisalign® Braces, the virtually invisible way to align your smile.

faster and more comfortable than traditional metal braces, Invisalign® eliminates brackets and wires – as well as the embarrassment about having a metal mouth – by offering individuals clear aligners that are customized to straighten teeth. Invisalign® makes it possible to enjoy your lifestyle as you always have, eating the foods you like, and attending your job, classes, or social events without the stigma of metal braces accompanying you.

Dr. Sharon Schmeiser is a certified Invisalign® Braces providers in Miami, Florida. They work together to customize Invisalign® treatment plans for the patients who are ideal candidates for this teeth alignment option.

How Invisalign® Braces Work

The first step in undergoing Invisalign® treatment is to determine whether you’re a good candidate for this orthodontic treatment. Invisalign® is able to correct protruding teeth, crooked teeth, gaps, and overcrowding – all of the same problems that traditional metal braces correct. Pictures of your jaw, teeth, and bite are evaluated to see what your potential treatment results would be wearing the clear aligners. A patient’s ability to follow the customized Invisalign® treatment plan is also critical to orthodontic success.

The actual process of wearing Invisalign® Braces is simple:

The patient moves through a series of custom-developed aligners, each of which is worn for about two weeks and then replaced with the next prescribed tray. This system is designed to gradually move your teeth into their proper alignment. Invisalign® is not one-size-fits-all – the aligners that you receive are for your mouth only, and they are constructed to move certain teeth at certain times until your entire smile is in full alignment.

The Benefits of Wearing Invisalign®

you will not have to worry about wires and brackets scratching your lips, cheeks, and tongue. hygiene is a breeze, just remove the clear trays and brush and floss as you would normally and then clean the retainer. you should also remove them when eating. The fact that Invisalign® is orthodontic treatment’s superiority to metal braces, but here are other Invisalign® benefits:

Invisalign® By the Numbers

Caring for Your Invisalign® Aligners

Caring for traditional metal braces can feel like a laborious process, and it requires meticulous daily care, which is one of the reasons why Invisalign® is so attractive to so many people – the aligners are easily removed so you can maintain your typical brushing and flossing routine. But just because you don’t have wires and brackets to tend to doesn’t mean your aligners don’t require some TLC. It’s important to follow a cleaning regimen for your Invisalign® Braces to avoid any discoloration, odors, or bacteria buildup.

Though Invisalign® is removed for meals and snacks, you can still drink while wearing Invisalign®. It’s advisable to avoid any sort of beverage but water while the aligners are in your mouth so you can avoid staining them.
And, remember, your teeth are only as healthy as you allow them to be. Invisalign® is straightening your teeth, but make sure there’s a smile worth straightening by maintaining a day and night brushing routine and flossing at least once daily. It’s still necessary to avoid decay and cavities by caring for your teeth and, because Invisalign® is a form-fitting orthodontic treatment, it’s possible for bacteria to become trapped between your teeth and aligners, jeopardizing your oral health. Take good care of your aligners and your teeth to ensure the cleanest, straightest smile.

How Invisalign® Will Look on Your Teeth

Singing with invisalignEven though you know you’ll be avoiding the stigma of metal mouth, embarking on any orthodontic treatment comes with a natural amount of trepidation. So what will you really look like while wearing Invisalign®? You won’t look much different than you do now, except your teeth will gradually get straighter and straighter. The clear aligners are extremely thin, and they are virtually unnoticeable on your teeth. Unless you tell someone you’re wearing Invisalign®, it’s unlikely they’ll pick up on the presence of the aligners during a normal conversation. Invisalign® has made straight teeth a possibility for adults who never received the kind of orthodontic treatment they may have needed as a teenager, and it makes adolescents live a slightly less awkward life by eliminating the obvious look of metal braces.

What It Feels Like to Wear Invisalign®

If you’re avoiding the discomfort, irritation, and damage that can be caused by brackets and wires, does that mean Invisalign® won’t cause any pain at all? The look may be different, but the science behind Invisalign® and metal braces is the same: You’re using a method of orthodontic treatment to shift your teeth and jaw. Wearing the aligners – especially that first set of aligners – will require an adjustment period. Each new stage of treatment is likely to bring with it a few days of discomfort as the new aligners put pressure on different teeth, but that means Invisalign® is doing its job and shifting your teeth into a straight smile.

How Invisalign® Impacts Your Overall Health and Well-Being

Besides the fact that you can go out to dinner and eat whatever you want without worrying about a piece of salad being stuck in a bracket, Invisalign® offers plenty of perhaps initially unseen benefits that will impact your lifestyle and your health positively:
