Many patients are reluctant to seek out orthodontic care due to the hassle of traditional bracket and wire braces. Not only do braces alter your appearance, but they also can poke the insides of your gums and limit the foods that you can enjoy. Not to mention the embarrassment of having food trapped in your braces. Plantation, FL dentist Dr. Uttma Dham uses clear, removable braces as a simple solution. Invisalign® aligners are custom-made from flexible, thin, clear plastic, so your colleagues and friends will barely notice your orthodontic treatment. Invisalign aligners should be worn for 20-22 hours a day, but can be removed for eating and special occasions. Cosmetic dentistry in Plantation, FL corrects the appearance of your teeth by gradually shifting them into a more appealing position.
Invisalign in Plantation, FL provides adult patients with a variety of benefits, however we want to share our top three reasons why Invisalign may be the best orthodontic choice for you.
Reason 1: No Wires
With Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about harsh wires scraping the inside of your cheeks. Aligners are created from thin, clear plastic and are custom-made to fit the shape of your mouth. They’ll feel comfortable and natural. We encourage you to wear the aligners for 20-22 hours a day to receive the most beneficial results. You should only remove your clear braces for daily cleaning, eating, and when you drink anything besides water.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are easy to clean and care for. Just rinse them with pure water each time you brush your teeth and clean them at night before you go to bed. It’s important to maintain healthy teeth while receiving this orthodontic treatment. Straighter teeth allow for a deeper clean when you brush and floss after each meal.
Reason 2: No One Will Notice
The clear BPA-free plastic that is used to make Invisalign aligners is discreet and thin. Your colleagues will barely notice your braces. Furthermore, although the translucent aligners are barely noticeable, you’ll have the freedom to remove them for special occasions, such as important business meetings, photographs, and first dates. As long as you wear your aligners for 20-22 hours per day, you will have the freedom to remove them for short periods of time. After being fitted for your personalized aligners, you will receive multiple sets, which should be replaced every two weeks. Each time you insert a new set of aligners; you will advance to the next stage in your treatment plan.
Reason 3: No Lengthy Treatment
The duration of Invisalign orthodontic treatment is significantly shorter than that of braces, which often take two years to correct the misaligned position of your teeth. Although each patient is different, we’re happy to announce that Invisalign aligners are usually worn for 9-15 months. Dr. Dham will determine the length of your treatment after fully examining your smile, so you will know when treatment starts just how long it will take.
You won’t feel limited by your clear braces, as you would with wire braces. Because aligners are removed before meals, you can enjoy all of your favorite foods without the worry of food getting trapped in your braces. You also won’t need any special tools for cleaning your teeth, and will be able to brush and floss your teeth as you always have. Invisalign in Plantation, FL is a convenient and effective way to improve the overall health and appearance of your smile.
Cosmetic dentistry in Plantation, FL is guaranteed to produce dramatic results. Your smile will become more even and symmetrical, which will leave you with higher confidence levels. You’ll feel empowered by your beautifully straight smile as you start to notice results and after your treatment is completed.
