Invisalign in Orlando, FL

For decades, patients relied on traditional metal braces to achieve straighter teeth. These braces were cumbersome, aesthetically unappealing, and uncomfortable. Sometimes the metal scraped cheeks or rubbed too harshly against gums, and teeth were more difficult to brush and floss because of the bulky metal and wires.

In our Orlando, FL dental office, we offer the very latest in dental procedures and technologies, and Invisalign plays a role in our modern approach to dentistry. Invisalign is also a discreet way to bring crooked teeth in line, enhance your smile, and optimize your oral hygiene.

Determining Whether You’re a Good Candidate for Invisalign

Dr. Hoover will provide a comprehensive evaluation to determine whether you’re a good candidate for Invisalign. This may include digital x-rays or 3-D Cone Beam technology for a three-dimensional look at your teeth, gums, and jawbone.

We also rely on virtual surgery planning to determine your Invisalign wear time and a sneak peek at what your smile will look like following Invisalign therapy.

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign relies on clear plastic aligners customized to fit your mouth. These aligners are changed every few weeks, subtly bringing crooked teeth in line. The Invisalign system works well because the aligners continually train teeth to maintain an optimal or straighter position over time. In other words, teeth become straighter with each new aligner.

The benefits of straight teeth include:

  • A nicer smile
  • A better bite
  • Better brushing and flossing results after treatment because teeth no longer overlap

The benefits of choosing Invisalign to straighten teeth include:

  • Easy aligner removal for eating, brushing, and flossing—not an option with traditional, metal braces
  • Smooth and comfortable texture—no wires or metal to scratch cheeks
  • Put them in and forget about it—no continuous dental visits for adjustments
  • Custom fit—each aligner is designed to fit your mouth
  • Clear—unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign is virtually invisible

What is Invisalign?

NuLife Dental and Med Center is an Orlando Invisalign certified provider. Because of this a lot of people ask us, “What is Invisalign”?

Invisalign is an aesthetically pleasing, orthodontic treatment alternative to traditional braces. Instead of using bulky wires and brackets glued directly onto the teeth, treatment with Invisalign uses custom fit, see-through aligners that fit directly onto your teeth. Many patients also find Invisalign is much more convenient than traditional braces.

Invisalign is a very clear alternative to ceramic or metal braces but requires specialized training. Dr. Hoover at NuLife Dental and Med Center is a specially-trained Invisalign provider, so you won't need years of research or even the services of your local orthodontist to improve your healthy smile.

How does Invisalign treatment actually work?

Invisalign works by wearing clear aligners that are made of a flexible plastic called SmartTrack. SmartTrack is a patented thermoplastic material that was exclusively design for Invisalign treatment.

Invisalign is FDA approved for use in the United States. Not only that, but Invisalign is also BPA and BPS free, and contains no latex or gluten, so those with allergies or sensitivities can rest assured knowing that Invisalign will not affect them in a negative way.

Invisalign aligners begin working by wearing a series of plastic, removable, and see-through aligners that allow your teeth to slowly be straightened so you can have the best smile possible.

The first step in the process is a consultation with Dr. Hoover to discuss your teeth-straightening goals and to examine your smile in order to determine the invisalign system that will best meet your specific needs. The dentist may also discuss with you the timeline to your new smile, as well as how much the Invisalign cost to treat and the treatment time.

Dr. Hoover will create a specific treatment plan that digitally creates a path of the exact movements of your teeth. The Invisalign system of clear aligners that will be designed for you are completely custom.

They gradually and gently move your teeth in to the correct position by applying pressure to the right places at the right times. This process is monitored very closely by Dr. Hoover ensuring you have the proper care at all times and your Invisalign clear aligners fit and function properly throughout your entire treatment plan.

What are the benefits of Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces?

The first, and often most beneficial aspect of Invisalign is the fact that they’re very hard to see and almost invisible when they’re being worn. Traditional braces however, are very apparent and very hard to hide once applied. This can sometimes lead to patients feeling self-confident during treatment with traditional braces or other orthodontic care.

Another beneficial aspect of Invisalign is that they’re completely removable. For instance, f you have a special event they can be easily removed temporarily by simply removing them, no trip to the orthodontist or dentist needed! Brushing and flossing is extremely easy with Invisalign aligners, it’s as easy as removing them for your oral hygiene routine. It couldn’t be any easier.

Some people say it's just like having invisible braces but without the oral health issues like discoloration or staining of the teeth or issues with your gums.

The best part of the Invisalign system is that the aligners are like clear retainers. Therefore, they have no uncomfortable wires that poke at your cheeks, no metal brackets that cut your lips, they still produce a beautiful smile, and are covered by most dental insurance plans. Here in the United States you can even use funds from your Health Savings Account (HSA) or hour Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to pay for them.

Give us a call and see if your dental insurance covers your treatment.

Can Invisalign really make my teeth straight?

No two smiles are alike. That’s why regardless of where you would like to get your Invisalign aligners, a consultation with your Invisalign certified doctor is how your Invisalign treatment will begin. This is when you and your doctor can determine what the expectations, for straighter teeth, are going to be and how Invisalign aligners can help you and your unique situation.

Using Invisalign to straighten your teeth is not a new concept, in fact, over 7 million people, have used Invisalign clear aligners to transform their smiles. This number includes more than 1.4 million teens.

Invisalign does not guarantee a particular treatment outcome, but they encourage you to share your treatment expectations and goals with your doctor at your consultation.

I had braces but my teeth shifted, can invisalign help?Absolutely. Many times people will get braces and over time lose or simply stop wearing their retainers. Invisalign is perfect for that. If your teeth continue to shift it is wise to make sure you have and use the proper retainer.

Is Invisalign only for specific people or situations?

The answer is a resounding NO! Invisalign aligner treatment is an amazing and wonderful solution for both young people and adults alike that are looking for a less obtrusive and practically invisible way to straighten their teeth and improve their overall smile.

Invisalign is the leader in clear aligner orthodontics. Their advancements and innovations, while outpacing their competition, have given doctors the ability to fix nearly all teeth alignments problems, from simple to severe.

Orlando Invisalign at NuLife Dental and Med Center even helps parents monitor if their child has been consistently wearing their aligners with the help of a little blue dot that is on the outsider of their child’s aligners.

Is there an Invisalign treatment process?

A typical Invisalign treatment in Orlando at NuLife Dental and Med Center starts with your Invisalign-trained dentist, Dr. Kenya Hoover performing a comprehensive evaluation to determine whether you’re a good candidate for their advanced clear aligner system.

We want everyone to have a comfortable experience so we provide a thorough evaluation. Your evaluation may include digital x-rays or 3-D Cone Beam technology. This digital scan of your teeth enables us to have a three-dimensional look at your teeth, gums, and jawbone, to provide not just a better fit, but a precise fit. This means no messy putty as is typical of orthodontics processes.

We also rely on virtual surgery planning to determine your Invisalign wear time and a sneak peek at what your smile will look like following Invisalign therapy.

After you have approved your Invisalign treatment plan, aligners will be manufactured specifically for you.

The duration of the average treatments is typically less than conventional braces, between 12 and 18 months. This is always determined on a case-by-case basis and individual needs. While the total treatment takes longer, some patients begin seeing results in a matter of weeks.

Each visit we ensure that the clear aligner trays are in the proper position to ensure the dental work we are doing is its most effective. We want every new case and every new account to receive treatment worthy of VIP status.

You should plan on wearing your aligners for approximately 21 hours a day, give or take an hour or two. You can also expect to be moving on to a brand-new set of aligners every week or two, unless directed otherwise by Dr. Hoover.

With every new set of Invisalign aligners you can expect your smile to slowly and gently be moved until you obtain the smile that’s perfect for you, all without the need for uncomfortable orthodontics.

Start out your next new year with excellent results from your clear align system.

Apart from Invisalign trays are there attachments?

The best answer to this question is, it depends. Every smile is different and each case needs different alignment. Some patients do need attachments in the form of SmartForce attachments.

These attachments are very small shapes that are tooth-colored. These get attached to your teeth either before or during your Invisalign treatment, depending on your individualized plan. They act as a small handle on your tooth. These handles give the aligners something to gently push on. This is very helpful in correcting conditions like an overbite.

From an appearance stand point, your clear aligners fit smoothly and firmly around the attachments, so they’re barely noticeable. Not everyone who uses the Invisalign trays will need attachments.

Does Invisalign cost a lot?

We strive to provide each client the best price and best value. As you would expect, the cost of treatment depends on the treatment options you need. If you are concerned the cost is too much money though, there are options that can make your treatment plan more affordable. You can use dental insurance from your insurance company, tax-free dollars from your HSA or FSA, or even take advantage of the NuLife Dental and Med Center's monthly payment plan via CareCredit.

The cost of Invisalign is similar to the cost of traditional braces, however, the quality of life during treatment is different. It is always best when choosing between the two to understand the pros and cons of each.

Which is better, Invisalign or braces?

There are obvious differences like permanently attached equipment versus easily removable clear trays. However, the patient's age alone may be a determining factor for that. Young children are more likely to lose the trays or not leave them in place long enough.

What makes Invisalign different is the ease of maintaining oral hygiene while enjoying a higher quality of life. We all know you shouldn't eat certain foods, like popcorn and nuts, with traditional metal braces and there are good reasons why.

Due to the intended permanent nature of conventional braces, they are a very solid structure. Not only can chewing on nuts break the metal braces and clear braces, but the braces can cause small chunks of nuts and other food particles under the gum line, resulting in an abscess.

If left untreated these can cause pain, swelling and even some forms of periodontal disease. The alternative with the advanced clear aligner system, is you can remove the trays while you eat as you normally would without braces. The system also affords you the opportunity to brush and floss without any of the restraints or special techniques that are inherent with traditional metal braces.

So when you consider the cost of braces and the cost of Invisalign remember to consider human factors such as comfort, eating, cleaning, teeth stains, and length of treatment when you are using your cost calculator.
