Invisalign® in Lakewood Ranch, FL

Traditional metal braces may not be your only option for straightening your teeth. Our dentists can use Invisalign® invisible aligner trays to resolve many orthodontic problems discreetly without unsightly wires and brackets.

What Is the Invisalign Aligner System?

The Invisalign system works like a series of transparent braces. During treatment, you’ll wear invisible plastic aligner trays that fit over your teeth; these move each tooth into the desired position gradually. After you wear each custom-molded aligner tray for approximately two weeks, your Invisalign dentist will replace it with a new one. Over a period of months, the progressive system resolves your mild to moderate orthodontic problems. Invisalign clear braces eliminate the need to announce your dental problems to the world. With Invisalign in Lakewood Ranch, only you and your dentist know that you’re secretly perfecting your smile.

Invisalign Cost: Will It Fit My Budget?

Invisalign cost is based on the complexity and extent of your orthodontic problems. Our skilled dental professionals can give you an accurate estimate of your Invisalign treatment cost after performing an orthodontic exam. Correcting severe abnormalities may be more expensive, but for many patients, Invisalign braces cost about the same amount as traditional metal ones. Your dental policy may cover a large portion of your Invisalign cost. For details about your Invisalign insurance coverage, contact your insurance company. If you’re worried about the cost of getting Invisalign in Lakewood Ranch, contact our office. We may be able to help you obtain affordable Invisalign aligners through our flexible payment plans and financing options.

Invisalign Length of Treatment

Invisalign treatment time will depend on the amount of movement or rotation required to place your teeth in their proper position. In general, it takes an average of one year for adults to complete treatment. In teenagers, treatment length varies. Some Invisalign treatments take up to two years. After completing treatment, you may need to wear Invisalign retainers to maintain results. Consult our Invisalign dentists to obtain a more specific time estimate.

Who Performs Invisalign Dentistry?

Both licensed orthodontists and general dentists who complete the Invisalign training program are qualified to administer the treatment. An Invisalign dentist has special knowledge and experience that enables him or her to ensure the best possible results in the least amount of time.

Invisalign vs Braces: Making the Right Choice

When choosing between Invisalign vs braces, it’s important to consider the effectiveness of your treatment as well as aesthetic value. For mild problems, Invisalign is as effective as braces in many cases. Another influential factor is the ease of oral hygiene provided by Invisalign aligners. You simply remove them to brush and floss, so it’s easier to maintain optimal tooth and gum health. If you have severe orthodontic abnormalities, Invisalign may not be the ideal choice. In cases where either treatment is a good option, your dentist is the best person to help you make the decision.

Top Invisalign Benefits

For eligible patients, the many benefits that Invisalign provides generally outweigh the benefits of braces, which rely on uncomfortable metal wires and brackets. Here are a few of the top perks you can enjoy when wearing Invisalign aligner trays.

  • A stunning smile within a few months
  • Fewer orthodontic visits and adjustments
  • Eating whatever foods you like
  • Removing your aligners as needed
  • No sharp, irritating wires in your mouth
  • Discreet, invisible treatment

Can I Get Invisalign?

Invisalign isn’t the ideal solution for everyone, but most adults with mild to moderate orthodontic irregularities are eligible for treatment. Children have more complicated dental needs due to the ongoing development of their mouths and jaws, so traditional braces are often a better choice for smaller patients. People with severe bite irregularities or other orthodontic problems may also be poor candidates. To find out if Invisalign for adults or teens is right for you, schedule an appointment to see one of our qualified Invisalign dentists.

Will Invisalign Treatment Affect My Lifestyle?

In general, treatment with aligner trays has little impact on your daily living. However, there are a few things that you shouldn’t do while wearing them. Chewing gum is not recommended while wearing aligners because gum can easily stick to the plastic. Smoking and chewing tobacco should also be avoided as these habits can cause tray discoloration.

Three Easy Tips for Aligner Tray Care

  • Clean your aligners using the manufacturer’s branded cleaning system, which you can obtain from our practice.
  • If you don’t have the cleaning system, simply brush and rinse your trays using cool water. Avoid exposing aligners to hot water as it can damage or warp them.
  • Warped or damaged trays cannot function properly. If one of your aligners becomes damaged, contact your dentist as soon as possible to obtain a replacement.
