Orthodontic treatment involves repositioning the teeth and jaw to correct misalignments and improper bite. While many patients are excited about the aesthetic improvements orthodontic care can make in their smile, straighter teeth are easier to clean and less prone to cavities; correcting your bite can alleviate headaches, TMJ pain, and abnormal wear. We offer the following orthodontic services at our Vero Beach office:
Invisalign Clear Aligners
Invisalign is a system of clear aligners that gently shifts your teeth into their proper positions. Popular with teens and adults looking for a discreet orthodontic treatment option, Invisalign is made with a thin, clear plastic that makes them virtually invisible. Your dentist will plan the precise movements of each tooth using a three-dimensional model of your smile and send these plans to Invisalign, where your aligners are made. Once your treatment begins, you will wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day; each set is worn for about 2 weeks before you switch to a new set.
If you have braces, a customized mouthguard can protect them—and your teeth—in case of an injury. Braces can even pose an injury risk for other players in team sports. The American Dental Association recommends that all athletes wear a customized mouthguard during practices and games.
Frequently Asked Questions About Orthodontic Treatment
Is Invisalign worth getting?
Yes, Invisalign is worth getting—patients who have had Invisalign treatment are thrilled with their results and the hassle-free process. Not only will you have a more beautiful smile, you’ll also have healthier teeth as a result of your treatment.
Am I too old for Invisalign?
You’re never too old to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted! We have treated patients of all ages with Invisalign. As long as your teeth and gums are healthy, you are a candidate.
Is Invisalign a permanent fix?
Like any orthodontic treatment, the results of Invisalign are permanent as long as you take steps to maintain them. This means once your treatment is complete, you will need to wear retainers as directed. Invisalign Vivera retainers are made from clear plastic material, so they look and feel much like your aligners.
Can I leave Invisalign out for a day?
You can leave Invisalign out for a day, but it’s important to understand that every time you do this, you’re prolonging your treatment time a little bit—and if you do this often, it can add up!
What mouthguard do you use with braces?
It’s important to select a custom-fitted mouthguard when you have braces. A store-bought one-size-fits-all mouthguard will not provide you with the protection you need.
