Westside Dental Center, your plantation dental professionals would love to help you achieve that winning smile without the look of traditional braces. Dentists in Plantation, FL, are well-versed in the process of Invisalign systems that can straighten your teeth and give you a great smile.
So, what is Invisalign? It is a system that straightens teeth and closes gaps without the use of metal braces that are permanent throughout the treatment process. The system uses customized, 3D computer generated models to produce a series of clear, plastic aligners that are removable. Because they are a perfect fit and clear, they are virtually invisible braces.
How does it work? There is an initial consultation where a series of photos and impressions are taken of the patient’s teeth. The impressions are sent to the Invisalign Lab for production. The treatment plan is modeled by a computer projection and the plastic aligners are created for each stage. The aligners are dispensed in groups of one or two and are monitored by your dentist. The typical plan requires 20 to 30 aligners for both the upper and lower teeth to achieve optimal results. Most patients complete the program within a year, depending on the extent of the alignment issues.
Benefits? Invisalign can be administered by your trusted dentist in Plantation and it can be completed within a year, which is a shorter time period than most traditional braces. The aligners can be removed when eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. This ensures that the braces are not causing any plaque build-up or cavity issues by creating hard to reach places.
Who are good candidates? The patients ideal for this process are teenagers and adults that have complete and fully erupted teeth and that are able to faithfully follow dental recommendations. Invisalign can treat gaps between teeth, crowded teeth, cross bites due to misalignment of the jaw, overbites, and underbites. There may be extreme cases of occlusions that may require traditional metal braces. A consultation will give you the answers you desire.
Invisalign is a highly effective procedure that can straighten your teeth and give you the smile you have always dreamed of without the look of traditional braces. The process is fairly quick with completion dates in approximately one year. Let us take a look and see if you are a good candidate. A consultation with your Plantation dental provider can determine if you are eligible for this effective procedure.
