What is Invisalign?
Largo Invisalign technology is very effective for treating minor to moderate tooth crowding and spacing issues.
Invisalign treatment consists of wearing a series of clear aligning trays that fit over your upper and lower teeth. A computer generates the trays based on a 3D model of your mouth and the ideal tooth migration that is defined by an Invisalign trained clinician. You receive sets of these aligners and insert the next set approximately every two weeks.
As the aligners gently move your teeth, you will see a gradual improvement in your smile. Because they are clear, others may not realize you are wearing them. You will adapt within hours to a day to speaking normally with them in your mouth.
Many patients complete treatment within one year. Although you are likely to experience some tenderness and tingling after each new aligner is inserted, due to tooth movement, you will be more comfortable than with traditional braces because the aligners are smooth. They will not irritate the soft tissue of your mouth.
You will remove the aligners while eating and cleaning your mouth. Not only will you enjoy more foods, but you’ll also be able to easily clean your teeth.
Adults of all ages, not just teens, are choosing to have Invisalign treatment.
At least 1 in every 5 Largo Invisalign patients is an adult. In Florida, this number may be even higher, and we see patients even in their 70s and 80s who are receiving this treatment. Adults appreciate the convenience and flexibility this treatment affords them to live a normal adult life, and they are grateful for the opportunity to have an esthetic, more youthful smile and healthier mouth.
Just as in the case of teens, Invisalign gives adults more esthetically pleasing smiles, corrects relapse of earlier orthodontic treatment, closes gaps between teeth, makes it easier to eat, improves oral hygiene by relieving overcrowding, and reduces excessive wear caused by grinding on misaligned teeth.
