The development of invisible braces has made orthodontic treatment more convenient, discreet and comfortable for teen and adult patients. The perfect solution for mild to moderate orthodontic concerns, invisible braces can gently reposition the teeth without anyone having to know you are wearing them.
Dr. Schamback is a Preferred Invisalign® provider in Port St. Lucie and can help you achieve a straighter, healthier smile with this treatment option. Invisalign can treat:
- cross bite
- over bite
- under bite
- crowded teeth
- misaligned teeth
- gaps between teeth (diastemas)
WHAT IS INVISALIGN?
Invisalign uses CAD/CAM technology to create a set of custom-made clear aligners that fit over the teeth like a mouthguard. Made from a clear hard-soft material that does not irritate the gums or soft tissues of the mouth, they will gently move the teeth into the desired position. Most patients enjoy comfortable treatment that does not include dietary restrictions and allows for easy removal of the aligners as needed to eat and clean your teeth.
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR INVISALIGN?
Dr. Schamback or an associate at Great Smile Dental will evaluate your orthodontic needs to determine if Invisalign is right for you. While most patients can benefit from this option, if there are complex concerns related to the bite or jaw structure, we may recommend other orthodontic treatments.
Invisalign can often be the perfect solution for adults with orthodontic relapse, minor dental health or cosmetic concerns.
WHAT TO EXPECT: The Invisalign process will begin with digital impressions of your teeth, taken in our Port St. Lucie dental office. We will use these to design a personalized treatment plan that will address your unique dental concerns and transform your smile.
The impressions and treatment plan are sent to the Invisalign lab where your aligners are custom made to the specifications provided by your Great Smile dentist. In a few weeks time, they will be sent to our office and your treatment will begin. We will provide detailed instructions for changing the aligners and oral hygiene advice to avoid other dental concerns.
Invisalign patients will visit with us every 6-8 weeks for a checkup to monitor treatment progress and make adjustments as needed.
Most patients will complete treatment in 12-15 months, after which it is recommended that a retainer is worn nightly. This will maintain your new tooth position and prevent relapse over time.
