Enjoy the benefits of a straight, healthy smile without wearing metal braces. Invisalign® has innovated orthodontics with clear aligners that produce an aligned smile without brackets, wires or the restrictions of braces. At Optum Dental Arts, we offer Invisalign for adults and teens who want to improve their smile at our dental center in Tampa, Florida.
Crooked, overlapped or gapped teeth are unhealthy and unattractive. Invisalign uses clear BPA-free plastic aligners to shift teeth into place. Gentle pressure is applied through the aligners that slowly move teeth into the desired position. The treatment period is similar to braces, from six months to two years, depending on the patient’s malocclusions. Every few weeks, a new set of aligners is prescribed to bring the teeth closer to the desired alignment.
The benefits of Invisalign start with their “invisible” appearance. The clear aligners are very discreet, which adults and teens love. Invisalign aligners are also more comfortable than metal braces, without the rubbing and poking that can occur from brackets and wires. The final benefit is the option to remove aligners to eat and perform oral hygiene, an easier option without the restrictions of braces.
Invisalign was created as an orthodontic product for adults in the 1990s, but it is now available for teens. Invisalign Teen gives teenagers the same orthodontic treatment to straighten their smiles without needing metal braces. Teens especially appreciate the discreet design of clear aligners and the ability to eat their favorite foods during their treatment plan.
Invisalign orthodontics are simple to care for and offer a more comfortable experience for straightening teeth. If you have been considering orthodontic care to obtain a healthier, more attractive smile, Invisalign may be the right option for you.
