Orthodontic treatment is used to correct issues such as misaligned teeth, overcrowding, bite issues and more. There are two types of orthodontic treatments, Invisalign and Braces. Many patients in need of orthodontics do not want traditional braces with metal and wires. Luckily, in many cases, Invisalign clear alignment trays can provide excellent results, with much less inconvenience than braces. Smile Creators near Miami Beach, FL and North Miami Beach, FL proudly offer this treatment in Invisalign alignment trays.
Invisalign aligners have been proven to be effective in correcting dental problems such as crooked teeth, spacing issues and overbites. Their innovative design works to provide quick results that greatly improve the look and function of a person’s teeth. Dr. Ripa and his team in North Miami hold your hand throughout the entire Invisalign process to ensure you get your dream smile in a short period of time.
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign treatment works by having the patient wear a tightly-fitted aligner for at least 20-22 hours per day. This aligner can be taken out at any time so that the patient can eat, drink, brush and floss normally.
Approximately every two weeks, the aligner is replaced with a new one, slowly adjusting the positioning of the patient’s teeth over time. In most cases, Invisalign treatment lasts somewhere between one and two years. After completing treatment, similar to braces, many patients continue to wear retainers to prevent their teeth from shifting into their prior positions.
