Ocala Dental Care is pleased to be a provider of Invisalign®, invisible braces, in Ocala Florida and the surrounding area. Invisalign® offers an excellent alternative for those patients who need imperfections in their smile corrected, but don’t want to utilize more traditional braces. Traditional braces can be uncomfortable and unsightly. They also draw attention to your smile’s flaws while correcting the problems. With Invisalign® braces patients can avoid all of that. Choosing Invisalign® over traditional braces also provides a far greater level of confidence for the patient as they are virtually invisible!
How Does Invisalign® Work?
Our dentists take impressions of your mouth using state-of-the-art technology. From these impressions, a series of customized, clear plastic trays will be created to fit your teeth. Then, every few weeks as your teeth are slowly shifted to their proper position, you will be fitted with new trays to continue the process of restoring your smile to its natural state. You can now correct poor alignment, gaps, overlapping teeth and more, in a way that is undetectable and discreet. Invisalign® treatments can take anywhere from 6 months to 2 years, depending on the patient’s condition. The average treatment time is usually around a year. After the patient’s final treatment, a retainer is used to ensure that the teeth remain in their proper placement.
What can Invisalign® Correct?
Tooth Gaps – From missing teeth or abnormalities of the jaw
Crossbite – This is a condition where your upper and lower jaws are not aligned. This causes the upper teeth to “bite” on the lower teeth’s interior. The results are tooth wear, bone erosion, and gum disease
Overbite – Similar to a crossbite, with an overbite your upper teeth protrude farther than your lower teeth. This can result in TMJ and jaw pain
Underbite – The opposite of an overbite, this occurs when the lower teeth protrude past the upper teeth. This too can result in TMJ and jaw pain
Openbite – When the upper and lower teeth fail to meet. This condition makes chewing and speaking more difficult
Overcrowding – This occurs when there isn’t sufficient space for teeth to properly grow in. This increases the likelihood of gum disease.
Invisalign® braces are worn between 20 and 22 hours a day. Unlike traditional braces the Invisalign® trays can be removed for easy cleaning. This makes brushing and flossing much easier for the patient than with traditional braces that can capture food particles and be uncomfortable. No more wires, metal or abrasions in the mouth! And this also means fewer trips to the dentist. Typically, Invisalign® patients only visit the dentist every 8 to 12 weeks to ensure that the process of realignment is proceeding properly.
