Invisalign is the latest way to straighten your smile. The process is less invasive and the results are quick. Anyone who has had metal braces knows that they can be difficult to deal with. Here at ParkShore Dentistry in Naples, Florida, we offer Invisalign to all ages who are looking to perfect their smile. We invite you to keep reading to learn more about Invisalign and the different benefits it has. 

 

What is Invisalign?

 

The Invisalign process includes clear aligners that slowly push your teeth into the desired position. Using digital technology, you will work with the dentist to determine your desired results. The aligners are then custom made to fit your personalized treatment plant. 

 

How does Invisalign Work? 

 

When you express interest in Invisalign, the doctor will first have you in for a consultation. During the consultation, the dentist will review your oral history and talk to you about your desired alignment. Impressions of your teeth will then be taken, as well as digital x-rays. These will both be used to create the clear aligners. You will be able to pick up your aligners at a later visit to the dentist’s office. 

 

During your treatment, you should plan on seeing the dentist every 3-4 weeks. The dentist will check your progress and give you a new set of aligners. Each set is designed to gradually push your teeth towards a perfectly aligned smile. The aligners should be worn for 22 hours of the day, and can be removed to eat and brush your teeth. Each treatment generally lasts 10-12 months 

 

Benefits of Invisalign

  • Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing you to practice good oral hygiene. You do not have to navigate wires, brackets, and elastics. 
  • No food is excluded from your diet. Invisalign allows your teeth to function as normal. 
  • While straightening your teeth, Invisalign will also correct any overbite, underbite, or crossbite that you have. 
  • You don’t have to go searching for an orthodontist that you trust. We can offer Invisalign treatment right here at Park Shore Dentistry.
