Do You Qualify For Invisalign?

Dr. Alexander is a dentist in Jacksonville FL and Invisalign® provider. Invisalign is a practically invisible treatment alternative to metal braces.

We help teens and adults straighten their smiles without metal braces. Invisalign is the first clear aligner system and a leader in clear aligners. This teeth-straightening system uses a series of custom trays to gently move teeth. These trays come off any time you need to brush, eat, drink or rinse. The Invisalign system is perfect for patients who need mild to moderate orthodontic care.

What Can Invisalign Do?

Invisalign is an orthodontic system that corrects misalignment. We mostly offer this procedure to patients who are over the age of 16 and have minor to moderate crooked teeth problems. To see if you qualify, we will check your teeth and jaw to assess the cause and severity of your misalignment.

We can then decide if this is the best option for improving your smile’s alignment. Instead of using metal braces, patients wear a series of aligners made from clear plastic. Invisalign can to treat an array of concerns including:

  • Tooth crowding
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Narrow tooth arches
  • Underbite or overbite
  • Cross-bite

Why Choose Invisalign?

There are many reasons why patients prefer Invisalign clear aligners vs. metal braces. The chief reason is that they are so clear, no one will know you’re wearing braces. The material itself is thin, so it blends in with your teeth. In addition to the esthetic and comfort advantages, Invisalign offers a number of major clinical benefits.

When compared to metal braces this system offers a number of gains, including:

  • Less noticeable look
  • More comfy than braces
  • Fewer office visits
  • You don’t need to avoid certain foods
  • Brushing and flossing teeth is stress-free
  • Better gum and tooth health during treatment because of better oral hygiene
  • No metal allergies due to brackets and wires
  • More predictable treatment outcome with Invisalign software
  • Custom aligners tailored to fit your teeth just right, for reduced discomfort and fewer scratches

How Does Invisalign Treatment Work?

First, your dentist takes digital impressions and pictures of your smile. Then he will send them to an Invisalign lab, where they will create a series of custom-made aligners. These aligners consist of an ultra-thin, clear, hard-soft plastic material. They are snug and won’t damage your tooth enamel and gums.

Next, the patient will wear the aligners every day for between 20 and 23 hours, only removing them for special reasons, meals, or when brushing and flossing. About once every two weeks you will upgrade to a new set, with the total treatment time being between a year and 18 months, depending on the severity of your misalignment.
