Invisalign in Fort Lauderdale

 

Invisalign is an increasingly popular option for adults who are looking to improve the alignment of crowded, gapped, or otherwise misaligned teeth. Older teens who are reluctant to wear metal braces can also benefit from the clear braces treatment, thanks to recent changes in the Invisalign method. Invisalign is a discreet, comfortable, and convenient alternative to conventional orthodontics, and Dr. Natalia is pleased to bring the treatment option to Fort Lauderdale and the surrounding communities of Pompano Beach, Plantation, and Hollywood, FL.

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign realigns your teeth using a series of trays that are shaped according to your unique dentition. Each one is designed to place pressure on a different part of the bite throughout the treatment. You will be instructed to wear each tray for one to two weeks before advancing to the next in the series. The changes are slight each time, but after about one year, on average, the treatment is complete — and your smile has never looked better!

Invisalign trays are removable, allowing you to eat what you like throughout treatment. Removability also means there are no special techniques for cleaning, like with conventional metal braces. And as long as you are wearing the trays for the recommended 20 to 22 hours daily, you can even feel free to remove them to look and feel your best before important meetings or events.

Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces

Invisalign works using the same orthodontic principles as traditional braces, but it does so using clear, removable plastic aligners rather than visible metal hardware. That’s perhaps the most significant difference. Some of the other important ways in which these two treatments differ include:

A Great Option for Teens and Adults Alike

No matter their age, few people want to wear metal braces. Thanks to recent improvements in the Invisalign method and a new indicator to help teens better comply with the treatment, Invisalign is now a great option for patients of all ages. That’s wonderful news for busy adults and image conscious teens alike!

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

The cost of the Invisalign treatment depends on several factors, including the complexity of your case and how well you comply with the treatment. Some Invisalign cases can be completed in as little as 6 months, while others may take over 18 months to fully realign the bite. Longer treatments cost more since you will require more trays and additional visits to the dentist.

You can reduce expenses by following all of the Invisalign instructions carefully. Make sure you clean your aligners properly and avoid exposing them to high temperatures. Always store Invisalign in its case while you eat -- it’s easy to toss an aligner in the trash if you wrap it in a paper towel at lunch. And, perhaps most importantly, wear your trays for the recommended 20 to 22 hours each and every day.

These tips can help you progress through the Invisalign treatment without any delays or added expenses. The only way to know for sure how much you can expect your Invisalign treatment to cost is to visit your dentist for a consultation.
