Flexible, clear and comfortable. When you think of orthodontic braces, do those words come to mind? They should if the system you choose is Invisalign. Provided by your dentists, Dr. Richard Romay and Dr. Martha Barrera, at Design A Smile in Miami, FL, Invisalign aligners straighten smiles easily and yes, invisibly. You could improve your smile in this innovative way.
A crooked smile can be unhealthy
It's true. If you struggle with crowded teeth, gaps, overbite, tooth rotation or other orthodontic problems, your mouth is not as healthy as you deserve. Misaligned teeth are harder to clear of harmful plaque. Plus, they subject your smile to teeth grinding, poor enamel wear and even gum disease, states Healthline.
Then, there's the confidence factor. People notice your smile first before they see what color your eyes or hair are or how tall you are, reports the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). A great smile advances interpersonal relationships, but crooked teeth adversely impact your confidence and how you impress friends, relatives and co-workers.
Think about Invisalign
Older teens and adults who want an unnoticeable and fast-track way to a beautiful smile should consider an Invisalign consultation with their dentists. Scores of satisfied patients at Design A Smile in Miami, FL, use these customized acrylic appliances to move their teeth into better alignment.
The average treatment time is about a year, and during that time, you'll see real progress as you wear the 18 to 30 appliances the required 20 or so hours a day. Dr. Romay or Dr. Barrera will check your progress every month, and when you've completed your care plan, you'll wear a retainer to keep that smile just perfect.
Why do people choose Invisalign?
Mostly, people desire a better smile appearance and oral health. However, they also wish to avoid the irritations, complexities and longer treatment times of conventional braces.
Invisalign aligners are fully removable, easy to maintain and crystal clear. Unless you tell someone you're wearing these appliances, they'll be difficult to notice. Plus, because of precision crafting and SmartTrack acrylic, the aligners correct your smile without dietary restrictions or intricate hygiene routines.
Other advantages of Invisalign include:
- Easy brushing, flossing and aligner maintenance (just brush with a non-abrasive toothpaste, rinse with clear water and replace)
- Treatment predictability (preview how your smile will look every step of the way)
- Compliance tabs which tell teen patients, parents and doctors how well the treatment plan is progressing
- More than 20 years worth of success stories since Invisalign's FDA approval in the late 1990s
