Well-aligned, straight teeth are not just beautiful, they are more comfortable and healthier. An improper bite and crooked teeth may lead to future dental concerns that may be expensive to fix and painful. This is why SEDA Dental of Jupiter is happy to provide advanced Invisalign — clear, removable aligners for our patients. Made custom to fit your teeth and your unique goals, Invisalign is more comfortable and attractive than metal orthodontics because they may be taken out to make eating and cleaning your teeth easier. If you are interested in experiencing healthier teeth with advanced Invisalign technology, schedule an appointment at our Jupiter, FL facility to receive more information.
There are multiple factors that may decide the alignment of your teeth: if you sucked your thumb, genetics, missing a tooth or teeth, and a physical trauma to your face. If your teeth are misaligned, it may cause more oral health concerns, such as a bad bite (dental malocclusion), uneven wear on the enamel, difficulty chewing and speaking, plus jaw pain and toothaches. If one of these concerns is identified during your annual dental examination, we can suggest an orthodontic procedure, like Invisalign.
An Invisalign treatment is ideal for both teens and adults who would like straighter, healthier teeth without the hassle, pain, and look of braces. Even though the aligners should remain in the majority of the day, your aligners may be removed for cleaning your teeth and eating, plus for special occasions and physical activities. Much less obvious than traditional orthodontics that poke and cut the inside of your cheeks, your family and friends will probably not realize that you are using your Invisalign aligners.
What To Expect
The initial Invisalign aligners will be made with impressions at SEDA Dental of Jupiter. When they are ready, you will come back to receive your initial trays with instructions from a member of our team. You should keep your aligners in for at least 20 hours every day for your treatment to work, ideally taking them out only for cleaning and eating. In time, you will move on to your next set of aligning trays as they carefully shift your teeth closer to proper alignment. You need to attend appointments around every 4 – 6 weeks at SEDA Dental of Jupiter to have your aligning trays evaluated and to get new impressions taken so your next set of trays can be ordered. How long you need to use the Invisalign system will differ considering the initial condition of your teeth and your goals; however, many patients need to wear trays for around a year.
As soon as your bite is aligned, it is vital to prevent your teeth from shifting into their original position. Vivera retainers by Invisalign are created using the same materials to keep your teeth in position once your Invisalign treatment is done. Every retainer is made custom at the Invisalign dental lab based on impressions taken after your orthodontic treatment is done. We will discuss with you how long to wear your retainer, as well as how to clean it after it is sent from the laboratory. Additionally, we will keep watching the alignment of your teeth and bite during your dental examinations to make sure your teeth stay in their new place.
Many of our patients find that part of their treatment cost is paid for by insurance. Our team can determine your coverage and figure out your remaining fees. SEDA Dental of Jupiter accepts many forms of payment if you are not using insurance. At your Invisalign consultation, we will talk about how much your treatment may cost and how our office can help to make your Invisalign treatment fit into your budget with payment plans and medical financing.
