Invisalign® Treatment

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign straightens your teeth using a personalized series of aligners. Invisalign manufactures these aligner trays according to your unique teeth. They are made from smooth, comfortable, and practically invisible plastic. You wear them over your teeth, and they gently and gradually shift your teeth into place. Every two weeks, you will use a new set of aligners until the completion of your treatment. Since there are no metal brackets or wires, you can achieve a beautiful smile with little interference to your lifestyle.

What are its benefits?

As a specialist in orthodontics in Melbourne, FL, and the surrounding areas, we recommend Invisalign as an effective alternative to braces. It can treat a wide range of cases including underbite, overbite, crossbite, crowding, and spacing. The aligners allow you to eat any food you enjoy because you can remove them when you want. This also means you can brush and floss your teeth normally. The comfortable and invisible plastic is also less likely to irritate your cheeks and gums.

What can I expect from treatment?

Your treatment begins with our initial consultation. We will determine if you are a good match for the procedure. If you are, we will then take x-ray exams, impressions, and pictures of your teeth. Invisalign will use this to create customized aligners for you. We will then provide you with an individualized treatment plan. You will then wear a new set of aligners every two weeks, and visit us for check-ups every six weeks. Make sure to wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day for best results.
