What is Invisalign?

Invisalign® is a state-of-the-art orthodontic treatment method that uses a series of clear aligners to gradually straighten and correct the position of your teeth. Invisalign aligners feature an FDA-approved thermoplastic known as SmartTrack®. SmartTrack is easy to care for and free of all allergens, including latex, gluten, BPS, and BPA.

What types of issues can Invisalign correct?

The team at Dental Designs of Plantation usually recommends Invisalign to correct mild or moderate orthodontic issues, including:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Cross bite
  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth

You might also benefit from Invisalign treatment if you have noticeable gaps or spaces between your teeth. 

How does Invisalign treatment work?

Invisalign treatment begins with a consultation at Dental Designs of Plantation. During your appointment, your dentist performs an oral exam and asks you about your goals for treatment. After gathering this information, they take digital impressions of your teeth. Your dentist uploads your impressions to a computer and develops a treatment plan that maps out the step-by-step movements of your teeth. 

After developing a treatment plan, your dentist uses your impressions to create your first set of aligners. Every 2-3 weeks, you return to Dental Designs of Plantation to try on a new set. This process continues until you achieve the smile of your dreams. 

How long does it take to see the results of Invisalign treatment?

No two Invisalign treatment plans are exactly alike. However, most people achieve their desired results in 12-18 months. If you want to speed up the process, make sure to follow your dentist’s instructions carefully. This means wearing your aligners 20-22 hours every day and only taking them out to eat or brush your teeth. 

How do I care for my Invisalign aligners?

Caring for your aligners is easy. To prevent stains and other damage, make sure to rinse them off with cool tap water throughout the day. You should also take the time to gently brush your Invisalign aligners with a soft bristle toothbrush and toothpaste at night before you go to bed. For more thorough cleanings, ask your Dental Designs of Plantation provider about the Invisalign cleaning system. 

Don’t let crooked teeth or a misaligned jaw prevent you from smiling confidently. To learn more about the benefits of orthodontic treatment with Invisalign, make an appointment at Dental Designs of Plantation today by calling the office or clicking the online booking tool.
