There’s no reason you have to wear metal braces to get the smile you want.

Invisalign Tray

Are you a teen who hates the idea of having gaps in your smile for your senior pictures? Are you an adult who feels like they aren’t taken seriously in the professional world because you have a crooked smile? If you said yes, you may be wondering how our Tampa, FL, dentist Dr. Robert Perez can help. After all, isn’t the only option to wear metal braces on your teeth for a year or more? Well actually, metal braces aren’t your only option.

Invisalign offers a cool and unique way to get the smile you want and to fix a variety of misalignments without ever having to wear metal braces. It’s a great option for both older teens and adults who may not have had braces as a child but still want to get straighter results later in life. Remember, it’s never too late to get a straight smile.

Instead of metal brackets and wires, Invisalign employs a revolutionary system of clear, custom-made trays that fit perfectly over your teeth to apply the perfect amount of pressure necessary to gradually shift teeth into their final and ideal position within minimal discomfort.

Each aligner is meant to move certain teeth a predetermined amount, as mapped out by our Tampa, FL, general dentist during your treatment-planning phase. Once we know what issue or issues you want to fix with Invisalign we can use special computer software to map out what teeth will shift and just how much in order to achieve the perfect smile.

As you might imagine, there are many cool benefits to getting Invisalign over traditional braces. The most obvious advantage is that the aligners are made from clear plastic so they are less visible, allowing teens and adults to go to work or school and still feel comfortable and confident speaking with their peers.

Furthermore, these aligners are completely removable, which means that you don’t have to change your diet to accommodate your treatment (traditional braces requires that you avoid a variety of different foods to prevent damage to the brackets or wires). Just remove your aligners prior to eating or drinking (anything except water) and you can enjoy all of your favorite meals. Plus, you can also remove your aligners before brushing and flossing. Not having to worry about brushing between brackets and wires is certainly a major relief.
