Fort Lauderdale Braces Specialist Explains How Invisalign Improves Your Smile

22 Mar 2019

fort lauderdale bracesIf you’re a teen looking to straighten your smile but don’t want to go through the trouble of traditional metal braces, there’s a great alternative available! Invisalign® clear aligners give you the effectiveness of traditional metal braces but are discreet and allow for more flexibility in your daily life. Our Fort Lauderdale braces specialist provides some information on how Invisalign can give you the results you want!

How Does It Work?

Invisalign functions in a similar way to traditional braces, which gradually employ more pressure over time to push the teeth into the desired position. As treatment progresses, smaller aligners are provided to produce this effect in place of tightening wires as is done with metal braces.

Features and Benefits

Nearly Invisible. Invisalign aligners are very flexible and nearly invisible! You can continue smiling without anyone noticing you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment, which is great for confidence.

Removable. Instead of worrying about braces-friendly foods or what will cause staining around your brackets, Invisalign can simply be removed before eating or drinking.

Wear Indicators. Another feature that the aligners come with is wear indicators that fade in color to help you keep track of wear time. This helps you make sure you get your new aligners at the correct time.

Which Orthodontic Problems Are Helped?

Invisalign can help most of the same problems that traditional metal braces are used for. Clear aligners can adjust crooked teeth, underbites, overbites, and crowded teeth. There are some instances in which braces must be used, such as cases of injury or severe jaw or teeth issues. Check with our orthodontist to see if you’re a candidate for Invisalign!
