Invisalign Clear Aligners in Parkland and Coral Springs

Out with the old, in with the new. This seems to be the trend when comparing traditional wire braces with the advanced technology of Invisalign braces. Instead of using wires and brackets, the Invisalign System utilizes clear, customized and removable aligners. Virtually invisible to the naked eye, these aligners typically straighten your smile quicker than metal braces, and the best part is that no one needs to know you’re straightening your teeth! As an early-adopter of Invisalign technology, Dr. John is your premier Coral Springs Invisalign Orthodontist.

The Invisalign Process

Dr. John and her friendly staff make your Coral Springs Invisalign process easy:

  • Talk to a professional Invisalign Provider: During your consultation, Dr. John will determine if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign treatment. At this point you can ask questions such as price, dental insurance, and any additional concerns.
  • A tailor-made plan is created for you: utilizing advanced 3-D computer graphics technology, Dr. John will create a highly-specialized plan made precisely for the unique shape of your mouth. At this point, we’ll be able to tell you the approximate length of your treatment.
  • Receive your custom aligners: Based on your specific treatment plan, a series of aligners are made just for you. You’ll wear the aligners for the majority of the day, only removing them to eat, drink, floss and brush.
  • Wear aligners for two weeks at a time: Roughly every two weeks, you progress to a new set of aligners signifying you’re one step closer to being done with your treatment. Occasional check-ups will be scheduled to ensure that your smile is progressing on pace. Depending on the severity of the adjustments needed, they may send as few as 12 aligners, or as many as 48.
  • Show off your new smile: You made it! You now have the perfect smile you’ve always wanted. Most clients will be asked to wear a retainer at night to keep your teeth in their new position.

As the most respected Coral Springs Invisalign expert, Dr. John will give you the smile you deserve in no time!

Invisalign® FAQ’s

Q. Why Invisalign?

Compared to traditional braces, Invisalign is favorable in many aspects. Invisalign aligners are discreet and virtually undetectable when worn. This means that users can smile confidently throughout the entire treatment. The traditional method of using brackets and wires not only creates clunky mouthful of metal, it can be uncomfortable for the user, with wires that can poke and irritate the mouth. Invisalign, on the other hand, is smooth, fitting precisely on your teeth. Made from impeccably accurate 3-D computer graphics, each set of Invisalign aligners is custom made for your mouth. After determining if Invisalign is right for you, Dr. John submits precise treatment instructions to Invisalign’s headquarters where they use advanced computer technology to create tailor-made, finely calibrated aligners.

Q. Is Invisalign Right For Everyone?

Many people in need of orthodontic treatment are unaware that Invisalign is an option and are often shocked to learn of the multitude of problems that Invisalign can fix. Invisalign works best for individuals in need of mild to moderate orthodontic adjustments. That said, some orthodontic treatments are too complex to be treated with Invisalign (at least in the beginning of the process).
If followed correctly, the Invisalign process is extremely effective. However, users must be vigilant in the process and wear the aligners at least 22 hours per day. The aligners are only to be removed to eat, floss, and brush your teeth. The temptation to remove the aligners more than suggested is too difficult for some to resist which is why Invisalign is not recommended for children, but more for adults and older teens. Contact Dr. John, your favorite Coral Springs Orthodontist, to make and appointment determining if Invisalign is right for you.
