Cosmetic Dental Services in Clearwater, FL
Invisalign® allows you to straighten your teeth without detracting from your appearance. There are no brackets or wires to mar your smile. You simply wear a clear aligner, similar to a tray used for whitening, over your teeth. The aligner is custom-fitted for you by your Invisalign dentist.
The Process Of Invisalign Dentistry In Clearwater, FL
An initial consultation with one of our dentists can determine whether Invisalign® is right for you. This offers you the opportunity to learn more about invisible braces. Dentists can discuss time frames, treatment costs, and any other questions you may have.
At this point, the dentist will take pictures and a complete a state of the art ITero 3D scan for a full mouth digital scan. ITero completely eliminates the errors and discomfort associated with traditional impressions. Dentists can foretell the exact movements of your teeth during your use of Invisalign.
It is now time for you to receive your custom aligners. Each set of clear aligners represents a step in your treatment plan. Dentists create the aligners to be worn for two weeks, causing a shift in teeth that will warrant the next custom-fitted tray. The aligners are made of BPA-free plastic.
Invisible braces require a change of aligners every two weeks and a visit with your dentist every six to eight weeks. These visits are to monitor your results, assess your progress, and make any necessary adjustments.
The aligners are removable, to facilitate brushing and flossing. Invisalign® may be taken out while eating but should be worn throughout the day. Invisalign® is a convenient, more attractive path to a beautiful smile.
ITero Makes Invisalign® Easy
iTero Digital Impressions completely eliminate the need for messy putty and trays when doing impressions. These highly accurate renderings also eliminate the errors found using traditional methods as the digital impression system digitally scans a patient’s mouth and bite. We utilize iTero to get an accurate scan of a patient’s mouth so that their aligner trays can be manufactured. iTero completely eliminates the errors and discomfort associated with traditional impressions.
