At our dental practice located in Brandon, Florida we are pleased to offer our patients the Invisalign system – a virtually transparent and removable alternative to traditional braces.
For many people who are unhappy with their not-so-straight smile, traditional orthodontics can be a daunting choice for many reasons such as aesthetics, and the necessary changes to their diet, lifestyle and oral hygiene that accompany this treatment. At Larry Saylor D.M.D. we offer our valued patients an alternative to traditional orthodontics called Invisalign.
How does Invisalign differ to traditional orthodontics?
Unlike traditional bracket and wire systems, Invisalign utilizes a series of transparent aligners to gently move your teeth into the desired position. These aligners are custom designed to the unique needs of your smile and are replaced every few weeks as you progress through your treatment. For your treatment to achieve successful outcomes, you will be required to wear the aligners most hours of the day.
What are the benefits of Invisalign treatment?
One of the greatest advantages of the Invisalign system is the fact that it is completely removable. This means that patients have the power to remove their aligners:
• During meal times – this means that the usual diet restrictions (such as avoiding sticky, crunchy or hard foods) do not apply with this orthodontic system.
• When maintaining your regular oral hygiene routine – this practice actively avoids the all too common staining associated with traditional systems.
• During important meetings or events – this makes Invisalign an ideal choice for many busy professionals or those concerned about their appearance.
• During photographs – this means that there doesn’t have to be any photographic evidence of you ever wearing an orthodontic system.
Another advantage of this system is that it is made from a transparent material that is virtually invisible to those around you – making Invisalign an inconspicuous choice for busy professionals and image conscious patients.
It is important to note that whilst Invisalign is a removable system, you must wear this system for most hours of the day every day in order to achieve successful treatment outcomes. Poor compliance whilst wearing your aligners can result in extended treatment times and lower quality results.
