Properly aligned, straight teeth aren't just beautiful, but they're more comfortable and healthier. An improper bite and crooked teeth may lead to future dental problems that may be expensive to fix and painful. This is why our team of dental professionals is proud to provide Invisalign — clear, removable aligners for our patients in Pompano Beach, FL. Made custom to fit your teeth and your unique goals, Invisalign is more comfortable and attractive than traditional metal braces because they may be taken out to make cleaning your teeth and eating easier. If you're interested in having healthier teeth with the Invisalign system, make an appointment at SEDA Dental of Pompano Beach to learn more.
There are several factors that may decide the alignment of your teeth: if you sucked your thumb, genetics, missing a tooth or teeth, and trauma to your face. Dental misalignment may cause more oral health concerns, such as a bad bite (dental malocclusion), uneven wear on the enamel, difficulty chewing and speaking, plus jaw pain and toothaches. If our team discovers one of these issues at your annual examination, we can suggest an orthodontic procedure, like Invisalign.
The Invisalign system is wonderful for both teens and adults who would like straighter, healthier teeth minus the hassle, pain, and look of braces. Even though the aligners should remain in place the majority of the day, Invisalign trays may be removed for cleaning your teeth and eating, plus for special occasions and physical activities. Much less obvious than traditional metal orthodontics that poke and cut your cheeks, your friends and family may not even know that you're using your Invisalign aligners.
What To Expect
The initial Invisalign aligners will be made with impressions at SEDA Dental of Pompano Beach. When they are ready, you will come back to receive your initial trays with instructions from our team. You will need to keep your aligners in for at least 20 hours every day for your treatment to work, ideally taking them out only for cleaning and eating. In time, you'll go to your next set of trays as they carefully shift your teeth closer to alignment. You should have follow-ups about every 4 – 6 weeks at SEDA Dental of Pompano Beach to have your aligning trays assessed and to get new impressions done so your next trays can be ordered. How long you will need to use Invisalign trays will differ, considering the initial condition of your teeth and your goals; however, many patients need to wear trays for around a year.
When your bite is aligned, it is crucial to stop your teeth from shifting into their original position. Vivera retainers by Invisalign are made using the same materials to keep your teeth in their new position once your Invisalign treatment is done. Every retainer is made custom at the Invisalign dental lab based on impressions taken after your orthodontic treatment is done. Our team will discuss with you how many hours a day you should wear your retainer, plus how to clean it after it is sent from the laboratory. The SEDA Dental team will monitor the alignment of your teeth and bite during your annual examinations to make sure your teeth stay in their new place.
Many of our patients find that part of their treatment cost is paid by insurance. Our office can determine your coverage and figure out your out-of-pocket fees. SEDA Dental of Pompano Beach offers several methods of payment if you are not using insurance. During your consultation, we will discuss an estimate of costs and how our office can help to make your Invisalign treatment affordable for you with payment plans and medical financing.
