Palm Harbor Invisalign
Palm Harbor Invisalign braces, which are actually a system of clear, plastic aligners, correct misaligned teeth simply and effectively, without the negative aspects of traditional braces. Here at the office of Ryan P. Lepore DMD, we want you, our valued patient, to have choices when it comes to treatments, and that includes orthodontic care.
The most common reason for seeking out braces is cosmetic. Improperly positioned teeth, or ones that are crooked, tend to make you feel awkward about how your smile looks. But beyond the way it affects your appearance, you can experience discomfort, and your bite can be thrown out of sync. Furthermore, you may be at a higher risk for gum disease or tooth decay. Poorly aligned teeth are more challenging to floss between effectively. Traditional braces, made from metal, do an excellent job of repositioning your teeth, but they draw attention to themselves, possibly making you self-conscious. You also have to observe many food restrictions. You cannot have crunchy foods because they can damage metal braces. Sticky or chewy foods can get stuck in them. And there can be some irritation or soreness in your mouth, especially early on. Our Palm Harbor Invisalign, however, is undetectable to the eye. No one knows that you’re wearing it. You can remove the aligners, so you are free to eat any food you like. As for mouth soreness, plastic does not pose the danger that metal does. You’ll be totally comfortable during the course of your treatment with our Palm Harbor Invisalign. Your aligners are made at our office, not in a dental lab. And with the help of state-of-the-art 3-D computer technology and advanced machinery, each aligner will fit you precisely.
To find out if you’re a good candidate for our Palm Harbor Invisalign (and most people are), simply contact our office and let us arrange a convenient time for you to come in.
If you are unhappy with your smile and want to have it orthodontically corrected, you should visit us at Ryan P Lepore DMD. Our expert and highly trained Clearwater dentist, Dr. Lepore, will be able to provide you with treatment with Invisalign braces.
Invisalign is often referred to as invisible braces because the clear plastic aligners are virtually invisible while they are being worn. This is why Invisalign treatment is preferred by many adults; they are able to attend work and social gatherings without anyone even knowing that they are wearing the invisible braces. Once our 90036 dentist determines that you are a good candidate for the procedure, since your bite situation can be easily corrected with Invisalign, 3-D imaging computer technology will be used to create your own individualized series of clear plastic aligners. Based on the bite problem being corrected, your series of aligners will have anywhere between 15 and 45 aligners in it. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and will slowly move your teeth into position for the next aligner. When the last aligner has been worn, you will have your beautiful new smile. Patients find that treatment with Invisalign is very comfortable because they do not need to wear braces with wires or metal brackets. In addition, our patients are able to eat anything they want during the entire treatment period since the aligners are removed during meals. Our patients also can easily floss and brush their teeth daily so that their teeth are still healthy and beautiful when Invisalign treatment is completed. Treatment with Invisalign takes about the same amount of time as treatment with traditional metal braces. However, you will be able to retain your beautiful smile throughout the entire course of treatment, as teeth will not be covered with metal or ceramic braces.
