What would it feel like to smile freely and not wonder if people are noticing your teeth? When was the last time you smiled for a photo? Living with crooked teeth is embarrassing and it takes its toll on your confidence. Your Comfort Dentists have good news! They are certified Plantation Invisalign providers, and they can help you straighten your teeth with discretion. Find out if you’re a candidate for Invisalign in Plantation.
What is Invisalign?
Instead of relying on metal brackets and wires to straighten your teeth, Invisalign utilizes clear plastic aligners that apply gentle pressure to align your smile. Aligners should be worn at least 20-22 hours per day for the best results but they can be removed for eating and brushing. Most Invisalign cases take around 12-18 months to complete and typically require fewer visits with our dentists than traditional braces would.
Am I a Candidate for Invisalign?
Dr. Kerry Waldee and Dr. David Hohimer can determine if Invisalign is right for your needs with a thorough examination, photos, and x-rays of your teeth. While this treatment works well for many patients, it can’t correct severe bite issues. If it’s determined that Invisalign is not in your future, our doctors are happy to discuss other options you may have for aligning your smile.
If you move forward with treatment, we’ll use 3D imaging to create your entire treatment plan. Invisalign actually uses these images to fabricate your aligners. As a bonus, you’ll even be able to see what your newly aligned smile will look like prior to starting your treatment.
The Benefits of Invisalign
You understand the effect of crooked teeth on your self-esteem, but did you know that they’re also affecting your oral health? Misaligned teeth are much more difficult to brush and floss, and they increase your risk of developing issues such as gum disease and tooth decay. When your bite is not correct, it can also contribute to jaw joint issues such as TMJ. Straightening your teeth with Invisalign is beneficial to your oral health.
Because aligners are removable, you’ll be able to eat without restrictions to your diet, and you can brush and floss regularly. Aligners are comfortable to wear so they don’t interfere with your daily activities, and they’re virtually invisible offering the ultimate discretion.
