Invisalign (clear aligners) are an excellent alternative to traditional metal braces. Named for the clear or “invisible” aligners that are used for orthodontic correction, Invisalign can straighten a patient’s crooked teeth in less time and is less noticeable than the metal bracket and wire system. Unlike braces, clear aligners can be removed for eating and drinking and do not restrict patients in the foods they can enjoy.
We recommends Invisalign for many reasons, including their ability to help patients with gum issues. Patients are better able to care for their oral health with the removable trays and can more easily maintain the reversal of their gum disease by using clear aligners vs. braces. Additionally, the Invisalign trays are situated above the gum line and will not trap food and bacteria between the teeth and gums.
Invisalign consists of a series of clear aligners that you replace every two weeks or so as they gradually shift your smile into the perfect position. Each aligner is custom-made just for you based on the treatment information that Miami Dental Group – Doral provides to Invisalign in Doral.
Miami Dental Group – Doral will use advanced technology to create your custom aligners in Doral. The Doral Invisalign course of treatment typically takes about 12 months to complete, but every case is unique and your total time of treatment could vary.
There are numerous reasons Invisalign is the ideal orthodontic treatment for patients with a history of gum disease. One of the greatest benefits of Invisalign for those with prior oral health issues is that its aligners can be removed for regular tooth care – brushing and flossing.
Excellent oral hygiene is essential for improving the health of the teeth and gums. With Invisalign in Doral, patients can floss and brush as they normally would without concern for specialized dental equipment. These are often necessary to keep teeth clean while wearing traditional braces. Patients who have had gum disease typically struggle with bad breath, but our Doral Invisalign promotes fresher breath by making it easy to brush and floss thoroughly.
Invisalign properly aligns the teeth over time which helps the gums tighten around the teeth, leading to improved periodontal health. Pockets that form due to periodontal disease can be closed organically through tooth movement. Many patients notice that their gum health significantly improves after they complete Invisalign treatment.
