If you need orthodontic treatment, and you cannot tolerate traditional metal braces, you should consider getting Tampa Invisalign braces instead. Invisalign braces have proven to be as effective at correcting malocclusions as traditional braces. However, many patients prefer them because they offer some amazing additional benefits that traditional braces do not.
Invisalign braces can straighten your teeth without having to deal with unattractive wires and metal brackets. With Tampa Invisalign braces, no one will even be aware that you’re wearing them because they’re virtually invisible. Unlike conventional braces, Invisalign utilizes a series of clear, plastic aligners to fix orthodontic problems. Unlike metal braces, the Invisalign aligners are very comfortable because instead of harsh wires and cold metal brackets that can cut into your mouth, they’re made of removable, plastic aligners that are much more comfortable. An experienced dentist like Randall A. Diez, DMD will take impressions of the patient’s teeth and will send it to the Invisalign lab. Each aligner is custom-made in the Invisalign lab for each individual patient. The aligners have to be worn all day (about 22 hours). The only exceptions are that they are removed before and during eating and teeth-brushing. The Invisalign treatment involves the use of a series of aligners. Each set of aligners has to be worn for a period of two weeks. At the end of each two-week period, the next set is introduced to the patient. Each set of aligners shifts the teeth a bit closer toward the proper alignment. Once the last set is worn, the teeth should be in their correct position. The entire treatment period for Invisalign from start to finish is approximately a year. However, it varies from patient to patient.
