Here’s Why Invisalign Has Such a High Satisfaction Rate

It’s never too late to correct crooked or gapped teeth, and Invisalign® may be just the solution you need to get an incredible smile. Learn how Invisalign works — and why this clear aligner system is so popular among both teens and adults.

Invisalign® is an effective way to correct misalignment issues in your teeth, so you can enjoy a healthier, more attractive smile. Many people prefer the Invisalign orthodontic system over traditional metal braces, and for good reason.

At Allure Dental of Hollywood in Hollywood, Florida, our highly skilled dental experts offer complete Invisalign services to teens and adults who want to improve their smile without the hassle and discomfort of having to wear old-school braces. Our office features advanced digital scanning technology to ensure the best possible treatment outcome every time.

How Invisalign works

The Invisalign system uses a series of clear, plastic aligners that fit snugly over your teeth and gradually shift them into a healthier position. The aligners are made of SmartTrack® material, which is FDA-approved for effectiveness. The materials are also free of latex, gluten, and other allergens for your safety.

Invisalign can correct a wide range of common dental issues, including:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Gapped teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Overlapping teeth

By digitally mapping every detail of your bite, our dental team can create a set of aligners that gradually shift your teeth with exacting precision. You wear the trays for 20-22 hours a day to keep your treatment on track, but can easily remove them for eating and brushing your teeth.

You can expect to wear each aligner for about two weeks before moving onto the next tray in your treatment series. Our team continues to monitor your orthodontic progress, making any adjustments as needed. Many people achieve their smile goals within 12 months. However, the length of your treatment time depends on the issues you need to correct.

Advantages of Invisalign

Invisalign offers many advantages over traditional braces. These advantages are why teens and adults are highly satisfied with their results and the ease of using the Invisalign system.

Here are the top three reasons Invisalign is so popular:

1. Comfort factor

Traditional metal braces can cause pain, bleeding gums, and other discomforts. You also need regular dental appointments to tighten the braces and make other adjustments.

Invisalign aligners, on the other hand, fit right over your teeth to shift them into place. While each new aligner may feel a bit tight when you first start wearing them, they are smooth and free of metal, so they feel comfortable in your mouth.

You can even sleep comfortably while wearing your aligners, without having to worry about cutting your gums or cheeks.

2. Ease of removal

Unlike metal braces that you have to wear all of the time, you can remove Invisalign aligners when you eat and brush and floss your teeth. You also don’t have to worry about getting food trapped in your teeth like you would with braces.

The see-through, clear aligners are nearly invisible, so you can wear them in public without feeling awkward. If you go out to dinner, you can discreetly and easily remove them before eating.

3. Shorter treatment times

While your individual orthodontic treatment time varies based on the condition of your teeth and your smile goals, Invisalign often gets the job done faster than traditional braces.

Many people wear metal braces for at least two years to correct overbites and other dental issues. With Invisalign, you may be able to cut your treatment time in half. During your initial Invisalign consultation, our experts can determine how long you’ll need to wear the clear aligners, so you know exactly what to expect in advance.
