North Miami Invisalign Clear BracesThere was once only one way to correct misalignment and bite issues, but now, your dentist has an innovative new technique to help you achieve your most beautiful smile. With Invisalign, our patients realize their smile goals in about the same treatment time as traditional braces, but with comfortable, discreet aligners. A wonderful alternative to the standard metal bracket and wire orthodontics, Invisalign has the capability to correct teeth that are too widely spaced, overcrowded, or affected by underbite, overbite, crossbite, or an open bite.
The process used with the Invisalign treatment plan is convenient and effective. We begin by making a model that guides the creation of a series of clear, plastic aligner trays. These trays are switched every two weeks, with each set progressively changing the position of teeth.

The elimination of metal brackets and wires facilitates subtle treatment, and also saves time and creates more comfort. Using plastic aligner trays rather than the traditional orthodontic design eliminates uncomfortable visits every two weeks to tighten braces. Patients visit the dentist for a quick progress check about every six weeks. Simply changing out one aligner for the next is all that is required. The curve of aligners eliminates any discomfort that might be otherwise felt, keeping delicate oral tissues intact and healthy. Lastly, having the ability to remove aligners as needed allows you to eat the foods you love, and perform oral hygiene without difficulty.
During the first few days of wearing aligners, speaking may feel a bit different, with some patients experiencing a slight lisp for a day or two. Any challenges with speaking disappear within the first week of wearing Invisalign, as the tissues and muscles of the mouth become accustomed to the trays.

Invisalign is safe and extremely effective. Choosing this form of treatment allows you freedom and comfort. Aligners must be worn for no less than 20 hours each day, removed only for meals and oral hygiene. It is important to follow your treatment plan to complete your smile transformation in the designated time frame.
When facing orthodontic treatment, cost is one factor to be considered. Invisalign is comparable to traditional braces in terms of cost. Our friendly staff will be happy to answer your questions regarding cost, as well as assist you in determining your insurance benefits for orthodontics. When general orthodontic benefits are a part of a dental plan, Invisalign should be covered.
