Invisalign® is a popular braces alternative among adults because it enables patients to achieve a straight smile without having to deal with the discomfort and appearance of braces. At the Doral & Miami Centers for Orthodontics, we offer Invisalign® to men and women living in Miami Springs, Kendall, Hialeah, and the neighboring areas of Florida.
Why Choose Invisalign® as an Adult?
Many adults who would like to correct their smile and achieve straight teeth tend to avoid treatment because they think it requires unsightly metal braces. Fortunately, Invisalign® offers a comfortable and virtually invisible solution for achieving a perfect smile. With Invisalign®, you don’t have to worry about the appearance of braces on the teeth. The Invisalign® aligners are clear and removable, so they never get in the way of eating or oral hygiene. As a result, many of our adult patients have found that Invisalign® is an affordable, comfortable, and effective alternative to braces.
How Will Invisalign® Affect My Lifestyle?
Adult patients love Invisalign® because it is a convenient braces alternative that does not significantly change your lifestyle. With traditional braces, patients would have to adjust their eating habits and develop new brushing and flossing techniques. With Invisalign®, patients can remove their aligners in order to eat, brush, and floss. This means that you can still enjoy your normal lifestyle while simultaneously straightening and correcting your teeth. Plus, Invisalign® is more comfortable than braces. You don’t have to worry about metal and wires irritating your mouth, and they fit precisely around the teeth.
How Long Does the Invisalign® Treatment Take?
A typical Invisalign® treatment will take between nine and 15 months. Of course, this time will vary depending on the amount of correction needed. During this time, you will visit your orthodontist about once every six weeks. At each visit, you will receive a new set of aligners in order to continue correcting the position of your teeth. Many patients are pleasantly surprised at the speed of treatment and the results they are able to achieve.
