Achieving a picture-perfect smile requires a lot of effort, both from you and your dentist. Thankfully, Invisalign®* is a fantastic alternative for patients who prefer malocclusion treatment that is less obtrusive than metal braces.
The first step to getting Invisalign is getting a consultation, which can help you determine whether or not it’s right for you. Premier Pediatric Dentistry offers Invisalign treatment together with a wide range of dental services depending on your needs.
If you are considering getting your malocclusion treated, Premier Pediatric Dentistry offers Invisalign in Coral Gables. After a consultation with our dentist, you’ll find what will work for you best to achieve your desired smile.
Invisalign is highly recommended for teenagers and adults with fully developed teeth who suffer from mild to moderate malocclusions. This means that you have at least one of the following:
It is important to note that if you have more complex malocclusion, then Invisalign alone may not be suggested for you. Depending on the cosmetic dental issue you have, your dentist may suggest additional orthodontic treatments or traditional braces instead.
Invisalign treatment is ideal for you if you value having a comfortable treatment that does not attract too much attention to your teeth. Because Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners, it is more subtle than braces, which consist of metal brackets and wires.
Although you need to wear Invisalign for at least 22 hours a day for maximum effects, it offers the convenience of being removable. This way, you have the freedom to eat anything without worrying about getting food stuck in your braces.
However, this also means that you have to be dedicated in keeping up with your treatment. You need to brush your teeth every time you put on and remove your aligners regardless of where you are. Despite the temptation, you have to keep your aligners on for as long as you can.
Aside from the type of malocclusion you have, your dentist will also need to assess your current oral health condition to see if it has other issues that may prevent Invisalign from being effective on your teeth.
If you have oral conditions such as dental cavities, tooth decay, or gum disease, then your dentist may need to provide restorative treatments before considering Invisalign treatment.
Your dentist may also need to factor in if you have tooth replacements in your mouth such as dental implants, bridges, or if you are using dentures. These may hinder the alignment of your mouth, and your dentist will need to find ways to work around them.
Invisalign is a great option for those with mild to moderate orthodontic issues and want a comfortable and stylish treatment plan. Keep in mind that this treatment requires utmost care and dedication for your aligners and your oral health.
