is an excellent orthodontic solution that most patients find more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing than the old metal braces. With the Invisalign system, patients are fitted for a series of removable trays. These trays gradually move the patient’s teeth into position.
If your teeth are misaligned, you may have considered braces in the past. While conventional braces work well, they don’t have a reputation for being very comfortable or attractive. It is a modern solution to the problem of braces.
The first step to getting Invisalign is to consult with a cosmetic dentist or orthodontist in Coral Gables. During this consultation, your dentist will evaluate whether it will be right for you, take x-rays, and give you an idea of what to expect with Invisalign. If you decide to proceed, your Coral Gables cosmetic dentist will send your images to Invisalign to have the set of trays created.
Many Invisalign patients have clear trays that are almost invisible when worn, and we generally ask patients to wear the trays for 20-22 hours each day. Some Invisalign trays have attachments that may be visible, but your Coral Gables cosmetic dentist will tell you what you’ll need during your consultation.
