Invisalign BracesNo doubt about it--an attractive smile is a wonderful personal asset. However, you feel less than comfortable about your own smile. Gaps, overlapping, and an overbite have plagued you for years. Why not improve your oral health and smile aesthetics with Invisalign clear aligners from Dr. Richard Romay in Miami, FL? Dr. Romay customizes invisible orthodontic appliances to move teeth into optimal positions comfortably and efficiently.

The Invisalign way

Composed of biocompatible acrylic, these thin, crystal-clear trays fit tightly over top and bottom teeth, repositioning them for better appearance and optimal oral health.

For more than 20 years, dentists such as Dr. Richard Romay at Design a Smile in Miami, FL have crafted Invisalign plans for millions of individuals, straightening alignment problems such as:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Openbite
  • Tooth tipping and rotation
  • Overlapping
  • Gaps

In fact, they work so well and so many dentists heartily recommend them that Forbes magazine says Invisalign is now a household word.

The benefits of Invisalign

Why are Invisalign aligners so popular? These thermoplastic appliances avoid the oral discomforts, dietary restrictions, nuisance hygiene routines and awkward appearance of conventional metal and ceramic braces. Also, Invisalign treatment is shorter--typically a year. Traditional orthodontics can take upwards of two and a half years with many office check-ins for appliance adjustments. Invisalign wearers see Dr. Romay every six weeks and receive their next sets of aligner pairs (there are 18 to 30 in all).

Finally, Invisalign aligners are removable. Although the appliances are convenient and comfortable, patients may wish to take them out for a special occasion such as a job interview or event involving picture taking. Also, while patients must wear the aligners 20 to 22 hours a day, they can remove them for meals and snacks and of course, to brush, floss and clean their appliances.
