Advantages of Invisalign
In comparison to traditional brackets and wires, Invisalign offers:
- Comfort and convenience: Smooth, plastic Invisalign aligners are more comfortable than metal braces. There are no wires to irritate soft tissue and no worries about breakage. In addition, you can expect to see the dentist less often. Invisalign appointments are generally every six weeks as opposed to monthly for traditional braces.
- Dietary freedom: As Invisalign aligners are removable, you can enjoy all of your favorite foods without restriction. As such, you do not have to be concerned about food particles collecting in or damaging brackets.
- Hygiene: With removable trays, you can keep teeth and gums sparkling clean with your regular oral hygiene routine. You will never have to brush or floss around metal components.
While traditional braces can cause tooth discoloration and staining, Invisalign only improves the appearance of your smile, rather than retracts from it.
During your initial appointment, Dr. Benmergui can assess your smile and provide an expected timeline for results. Our office uses a 3-D digital scanner to create the images needed to design your custom aligners. For patients, this is highly preferable to a traditional physical mold, which can cause discomfort.
Once your custom trays have been fabricated, you can return to our office and proceed with treatment under the dentist’s supervision. You should wear each set of aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day, for approximately one to two weeks. You can then transition to the next set of trays, which will gradually shift your teeth into proper position.
The Invisalign method allows you to pursue your cosmetic goals efficiently and discreetly.
At Bal Harbour Smiles, we offer treatment options to suit a variety of patients’ needs. For younger patients, Invisalign Teen provides specially designed aligners with built-in wear-time tracking. This program also allows for ready replacements for lost aligners. Invisalign Teen is an optimal method for self-conscious teens or those involved in contact sports. The aligners can be removed when it is time to wear a protective mouthguard for practice and games, so you never have to worry about dental injuries caused by metal braces.
We also offer Invisalign Express for patients who qualify. This cost-effective, five-stage treatment can address minor cosmetic dental concerns in three months or less.
