What You Need To Know About Invisalign® By Your Pembroke Pines Orthodontist

With your Pembroke Pines, FL, orthodontist, Lucas Orthodontics can make your dream of having a new smile come to life – without any metal! Dr. Lucas is a certified Invisalign® orthodontist, giving patients a “clearly” effective and incredibly comfortable way to wear braces!

What Is Invisalign®

Though Invisalign® isn’t the best option for extreme cases, it is a very good option for people who have minor misalignment, crowding, or gaps. Based on your individual needs, your orthodontist in Pembroke Pines, FL, will be able to tell you whether Invisalign® is a good option for you.

Benefits
• They’re truly invisible
• You can keep eating and drinking whatever you want
• Removable trays

Drawbacks
• Self-discipline is a must
• Not recommended for extensive treatment
• You have to clean the trays separately and take them out for anything other than water
• Brush after every single meal, no exceptions.

What Is Invisalign® Teen

Invisalign® Teen uses a series of customized, clear aligners to straighten teeth in a quicker amount of time and with fewer office visits than traditional braces. Your teen aligners have a blue light on them which fades to clear once they have been worn for the recommended amount of hours per day for 2 weeks. When the light is clear, move on to the next set of aligners!

Invisibility Also Means Responsibility

If you choose Invisalign® or Invisalign® Teen, your oral hygiene habits will be put to the test! Making sure you brush after every meal (even if you just grab a fry off of your friend’s plate), taking your trays out if you’re eating or drinking anything except for water, and cleaning your teeth and then the trays are all a major part of treatment.

  • My experience here has always been amazing. This is my 2nd time getting braces with them due to not wearing my retainer. I was very pleased with my results the first time and am sure I will achieve the same beautiful smile a 2nd time. Glory at the front desk is very kind and helpful when checking you in and working you up. All the staff is very sweet and I love how clean and bright the facility is.
