Invisalign for Adult, Teen & Transfer Patients
Invisalign & Invisalign Teen use a series of removable, clear braces that straighten your teeth without the impact of traditional braces. Invisalign allows you to go through your Orthodontic treatment while maintaining your current life style by not requiring the use of braces or wires. Virtually invisible to others, the Invisalign treatment effectively moves teeth to get you the beautiful smile you deserve.
What is Invisalign?
The Invisalign system relies on the use of a series of aligners designed to slowly and comfortably move your teeth into the desired position. This is accomplished through the use of 3D imagine technology. These images map your bite as it currently is and then create a plan to work them into the final, improved position. Each aligned made is another step in the completion of this plan. As these are clear, no one needs to know you are wearing them. What more could you ask for from an orthodontic treatment?
These invisible braces are as no muss, no fuss as your orthodontist can provide. As the Invisalign system does not rely on traditional metal brackets and wires, there are not uncomfortable adjustments to be made. Instead, you simply switch to the next aligner on schedule. This means fewer office visits and less time spent when you do have one.
One of the greatest hassles of traditional braces is maintaining your dental hygiene; brushing and flossing with braces is vital but also a giant pain. However, if you are using the Invisalign system, you can simply pop out your aligner to brush, floss, and clean the aligner itself.
What can I Expect?
Before you even begin, you will get the chance to see the final result of your treatment. When your doctor takes the scans, he will generate visuals that walk you through the entire process from start to finish. This is great motivation to keep you on track and wearing your aligners.
Once the treatment plan is set, he will make your series of aligners. Every two weeks, you will move to the next, continuing until treatment is complete and the desired results have been achieved. Each new aligner will slightly move your teeth, causing no pain and minimal discomfort. Office visits will be scheduled every six weeks. You can expect treatment to take between 9 and 15 months with between 18 and 30 aligners used. Even if Hollywood is far removed from Tampa, Invisalign can still give you a Hollywood smile.
Worried That Invisalign Will Interfere with Extracurriculars?
Not only are the aligners removable, they are very durable. Invisalign will not interfere with any of your extracurricular activities. No matter if you are acting, playing soccer, running cross country or part of the school band, Invisalign will let you continue to do all the activities you love. Our Tampa, FL Orthodontists love to have happy patients and these clear braces fit the bill.
