Committing to straightening your teeth and correcting your bite issues with orthodontic treatment often means also committing to wearing cumbersome metal braces for an extended period of time. However, if wearing the obvious metal wires and brackets holds you back from orthodontic treatment, you have other, more discreet options. With Invisalign, you can get a beautiful, straight smile and properly align your bite without the hassle of metal braces. Find out more about Invisalign with Dr. Mark Kedzierski in Melbourne, FL.
What can Invisalign do for me?
Invisalign treats the same issues as traditional orthodontic treatment. While some very severe cases may require traditional braces, almost every patient requiring orthodontic treatment can achieve their desired results with Invisalign. Invisalign treats many issues, including:
- misaligned teeth
- overcrowded (overlapped) teeth
- under crowded (gapped) teeth
- open bite
- uneven teeth
How is Invisalign different from traditional braces?
Thanks to Invisalign’s design, it is completely removable. During traditional orthodontic treatment, your dentist places metal brackets and wires onto your teeth which remain there until your treatment comes to an end. Invisalign's aligner trays fit right into the mouth and secure themselves around the teeth. Since each aligner tray is customized to your specific treatment, they are comfortable and easy to wear. In addition to their materials making them comfortable, the aligner trays’ plastic makeup also makes them clear, virtually invisible to those around you. This allows you to straighten your smile without compromising your look.
Invisalign Treatment in Melbourne, FL
Invisalign works best for children above the age of 12 and adults. Younger children’s mouths are still forming, which could hinder the Invisalign process, or lengthen treatment time. In some cases, dentists begin treatment at an earlier age to guide the teeth and jaw into position. Patients should understand that they should wear their Invisalign aligner trays at least 22 hours a day or risk The best way to determine if Invisalign is the best orthodontic treatment for you or your child is to consult with your orthodontist at an Invisalign consultation.
