Getting started with Invisalign

Getting Started with Invisalign

While the majority of certified Invisalign dentist and orthodontists in the dental industry take a traditional dental impression mold to capture the teeth, we specialize in digital invisalign impressions to expedite treatment, lower cost and increase patient comfort. We have developed a "Patient Invisalign Limited Guarantee" program to provide additional Invisalign aligners at no charge to our patients for up to 3 years after treatment for most of our invisalign cases.

Straight Teeth no Braces. We are a certified preferred Invisalign provider for the city of Fort Lauderdale and Plantation. The most obvious advantage of Invisalign treatment is cosmetic. The aligners are transparent, therefore far more difficult to detect than traditional wire and bracket braces. This makes Invisalign popular among adults who want to straighten their teeth without the look of traditional metal braces.

In addition, the aligners are more comfortable than braces. Due to the removable nature of the aligners, food can be consumed without the discomfort of metallic braces. Clinically, Invisalign avoids many of the side effects of traditional braces. Steps on how to get started with Invisalign:

Step 1: Initial Invisalign® Visit 

During the initial one and a half hour visit, Dr. Arocha or Dr. Jaquez will evaluate, assess and discuss the course of treatment with you. We would take a quick 5 minutes iTero scan of your teeth and photos of your teeth.

Step 2: Invisalign® makes your aligners

Invisalign takes two to three weeks to make your aligners using an advanced 3-D computer imaging technology to transform your bite impressions into a custom-made series of clear and removable aligners.

Step 3: You receive your Invisalign Inventory

During your next visit to the office, you will receive your first set of clear aligners. Dr. Arocha and/or Dr. Jaquez will most likely give you a few additional sets to wear before your next visit.

Step 4: You wear your aligners.

You'll wear each set of clear aligners day and night for 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Patients at our office, on average, complete treatment in approximately 15-18 months. You'll visit the office at regular intervals to check your progress.

Step 5: You've finished treatment!

Congratulations! When you're finished wearing each clear aligner in the series, your treatment will be complete and you will be required wear an upper and lower retainer of your choice. You can choose from fixed or removable retainers.

Is Invisalign for me

Invisalign can be used to treat the vast majority of common problems for adults and teens.

Whether your smile needs minor specialized improvements or more extensive adjustments, our preferred Invisalign dentist can certainly help. It's successful in treating overly crowded or widely spaced teeth. It can also relieve more complex issues, including overbites, underbites, and even crossbites. In fact, an Invisalign Certified Orthodontist or Dentist can use Invisalign clear aligners in all or part of just about any treatment plan.

Made to fit your lifestyle, not change it.

Because Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to position and straightens teeth, you can keep your active lifestyle during treatment. Unlike braces, Invisalign aligners have no metal bands or wires to irritate your mouth. So go ahead and be as active as you like. Since Invisalign is removable, just take the clear aligners out for special events or if you're going to indulge in a sticky, gooey snack.

Look your best during and after treatment.

Of course, you want to look great, at work, at school, with friends. Maybe you speak to groups or conduct meetings. You still can. Because Invisalign is clear and nearly invisible, most people will never know you're straightening your teeth - unless you tell them. And when your course of treatment has ended, you can feel more confident, whether in front of people or not. You're going to have a stunning smile.

If you are considering tooth straightening, you may be nervous about the possibility of getting metal braces with wires and anchors and ligatures. Many adults had braces as a teen but were so embarrassed that they did not wear their retainers and ended up having their teeth migrate back into poor position. These people are generally good candidates for Invisalign, as are most people who are looking to correct a number of common dental conditions.

This page gives some information about you may be a possible candidate, but it cannot tell you whether Invisalign will work for you. The only way to determine whether you are a candidate for Invisalign is by scheduling a consultation with a dentist.

Fortunately, many people qualify for Invisalign. This new computerized technique makes use of a series of custom-made aligners. However, not everyone can use Invisalign due to a number of different factors. If you’re wondering if Invisalign will work for you, the following information provides you with information to give you an idea of whether or not you’d be a good candidate for Invisalign.

However, Invisalign has no trouble correcting common problems like overbite, underbite, crossbite and crowded teeth. Unfortunately, if any of these issues are relatively severe, Invisalign may not be able to correct them.

You cannot remove traditional braces—once they’re on, they’re on until they are removed. However, with the Invisalign aligners, you can pop them out whenever you want. You have to take them out when you’re eating or drinking. Other than that, you need to wear the aligners for a good portion of the day, every day until you’ve completed the entire series of aligners. If you cannot commit to that, you are not a candidate.
