New Year, New Smile With Invisalign

Welcome back to another December edition of our oral health blog! If you are looking for a comprehensive dentist’s office in Clearwater, FL, we hope that you will give us the opportunity to earn your trust.

And whether you’ve been naughty or nice, at Clearwater Dental Associates, we think that you deserve to get the smile of your dreams in the new year.

Now is the perfect time to start transforming your collection of crooked, crowded, and gapped teeth into a radiant new smile. Maybe it can be your holiday gift to yourself!

What will that entail?

A short-term orthodontic treatment, specifically designed for adults.

Don’t worry, we aren’t talking about traditional metal braces.

We can do better than that! We are talking about Invisalign, a modern approach to moving stubborn adult teeth into a more ideal placement.

Orthodontic Treatment Mach II

Nothing stays the same, even at your Clearwater dentist’s office we are always looking for new and better ways to get things done. Yet, most people will forever picture the old school braces (made of metal brackets and wires) that we all grew up with, whenever orthodontics are mentioned.

All we can say is get that image out of your head because Invisalign can provide a more discreet, less time consuming method of treatment than conventional braces, though the end result will be just as incredible.


The Benefits Of Invisalign Are Clear

Appropriately enough, Invisalign emerges at the end of the 1990s to bring orthodontic treatments into the modern era. This system works by employing a series of clear, plastic aligners (that are based on molds of your mouth) to facilitate the movements of your teeth.

With Invisalign, your aligners are virtually invisible, which means your treatment will be conducted in a more subtle manner and won’t attract any unwanted attention from your peers.

Truth be told, the aligners are actually more like wearing a mouthguard than braces, which makes for a rather comfortable treatment.

We can plot out your entire Invisalign treatment schedule in advance and design your aligner trays accordingly. Then every two weeks you can switch them out yourself to keep things moving forward. Luckily this means that there won’t be any need for monthly office visits to tune-up your gear.

Much like traditional orthodontic wires, each Invisalign tray is specifically designed to move certain teeth, at very specific times. But the difference is that the aligners fit snugly for a more enjoyable experience, one that won’t cause any mouth sores.

The best feature is that they are removable. You can take your aligners out to eat, and to clean them off. Or for any other reason that you see fit to ditch them for a while. That said, you do have to wear them for 20+ hours a day to stay on track.

With old school braces your treatment would take 2-3 years, but with Invisalign it should wrap up in a matter of months.

The sooner you get started, the sooner you’ll have that awesome new smile!
