What To Do If My Braces Break?

What is involved in Lake Mary Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign has been proven to be just as effective as traditional braces at treating many of the most common orthodontic issues when it is used as directed.

The Invisalign clear aligner system uses clear, removable aligners to align teeth and improve your oral health. We’ll use X-rays and digital impression to create a precise 3D image of the teeth at your free initial consultation. We use this to build a customized aligner that is specific to each patient’s smile. The trays are constructed of a smooth, comfortable material that fits firmly over your teeth. These trays are designed to be switched out every 1-2 weeks to keep up with the teeth as they move into their desired new positions.

How Do Braces Straighten Teeth?

What Makes Lake Mary Invisalign Treatment Beneficial?

A key advantage of Invisalign aligners, aside from their almost invisible appearance, is their removability. This feature allows for easy removal before brushing and flossing, facilitating better access to your teeth for a thorough clean—crucial for maintaining oral health during orthodontic treatment. Additionally, the ability to remove the aligners before consuming anything but water means there's no risk of food particles getting trapped in traditional braces' brackets or wires.

The convenience of being able to remove your aligners means you face no dietary restrictions, a common challenge for those with traditional braces. With Invisalign, you can continue to enjoy your favorite meals while on your journey to a straighter smile, though it's important to remove the aligners before eating to prevent staining and to clean them regularly with warm water.

Invisalign aligners eliminate the discomfort of sharp wires and the need for adjustment appointments, although regular check-ups every 6-8 weeks with Dr. Beim are still necessary to ensure your treatment is progressing as expected.

Understanding the Lake Mary Invisalign Process

The process for Invisalign is quite simple. Aligners are worn for a two-week period and are only to be removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. After two weeks, you switch to the next aligner in the sequence, gradually moving your teeth to their optimal position.

At Beim Orthodontics, we monitor your progress to ensure the treatment is on track. Failing to attend check-ups or not updating aligners as required can reverse any advancements made. It's vital to adhere to the schedule for changing aligners and to wear them consistently as instructed. Success with Lake Mary Invisalign hinges on this discipline. Your aligners are tailored to your dental structure and need regular updates to match your teeth's movement as they align.

While treatment duration varies widely, ranging from 6 to 18 months, much depends on how closely you follow your treatment plan. Each patient's reaction to orthodontic treatment is unique. Since Invisalign operates differently and more gently than traditional braces, the exact duration before seeing results can be uncertain.

The effectiveness of Invisalign is contingent upon strict adherence to the treatment plan, including wearing the aligners for 20-22 hours daily. Any deviation can extend the treatment time.
