Invisalign is a relatively new technique that does not use "braces" at all to straighten one's teeth. Instead, this system effective for mild to moderate crowding uses a series of clear aligners (computer-generated or lab-constructed) that are worn sequentially until the desired correction is achieved.
If you live in Coconut Creek, Boca Raton, Parkland, Coral Springs, Florida, or surrounding locations in Broward County, ask our dentist which teeth straightening procedure is right for you.
Invisalign clear aligners are removable and virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing, and you can still eat and drink whatever you want during treatment. You can remove the aligners easily to eat and for regular brushing and flossing to maintain healthy gums and teeth. And, there are no wires or brackets to cause discomfort or irritation! Many of our patients who never considered traditional adult braces are now happily and comfortably improving their smiles with Invisalign!.
Of course, we also offer traditional braces for children aged 7 to 12 years and older, along with adult braces. We recommend that children have an orthodontic evaluation at about age 7-9 when baby teeth usually begin falling out, and adult teeth erupt. Then, we can identify potential problems and correct them before they develop into big situations.
