Orthodontic Treatment With Invisalign
Dr. Lunsford and his team at Lunsford Orthodontics understand that braces may not fit everyone’s idea of orthodontic treatment. Some patients are looking for an alternative to traditional braces that better fits their lifestyle. For these patients, Dr. Lunsford is proud to offer Invisalign®.
Invisalign straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. The clear aligners are virtually undetectable, offering a discreet orthodontic treatment option.
How Invisalign Works
The Invisalign System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with the 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your orthodontist, Dr. Lunsford. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan.
Your first step is to visit our West Palm Beach office to determine if Invisalign is right for you. After Dr. Lunsford sends precise treatment instructions, Invisalign uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions into a sequence of finely calibrated aligners — as few as 12 or as many as 48. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then you'll be smiling like you never have before!
The Advantages of Invisalign
- Easy Oral Care — Because Invisalign aligners are a removable orthodontic appliance, oral hygiene will be easy to maintain, as you will be able to clean your teeth more easily than if you were wearing affixed braces.
- Discreet Look — The clear material of Invisalign allows you to feel more confident while undergoing orthodontic treatment because the aligners are practically invisible on your teeth and will go unnoticed.
- No Food Restrictions — Patients who wear braces have to be more careful about eating certain foods to protect their wires and brackets from damage. When you’re using Invisalign, you do not have to restrict what you eat, just be sure to remove your clear aligners when you do eat!
- Comfort — The soft, flexible plastic material Invisalign is made of will not irritate your mouth, so your orthodontic treatment process will be a comfortable one.
