Invisalign Clear AlignersInvisalign clearly conceals that you're straightening your crooked smile.

When the image of braces is brought to mind, are you picturing broad metal wires laced through bulky brackets? If you've already had braces, you probably recall the all-too-frequent visits to your orthodontic office to tighten those wires and the discomfort that followed for a few days after. Fortunately, advances in dental technology have changed all that. Reserve Dental Group is proud to offer Invisalign in Boca Raton to their patients, a revolutionary way to straighten teeth comfortably and discreetly.

How does Invisalign work?

With 3D imaging, a laboratory will craft a series of Invisalign trays made just for you. These trays, called aligners, are made of thin, clear, lightweight plastic and will fit accurately on your teeth. As your teeth move into the proper positions, aligners will be changed for the next one in the series. With only a few checkups at your Boca Raton dentist's office, this process usually takes between nine and fifteen months if the aligners are worn correctly.

What makes Invisalign special?

Up until just a few years ago, braces were substantial metallic appliances that were obvious even when the wearer's mouth was closed. Invisalign, however, states its function in its name - the transparent aligners are practically invisible. A large percentage of patients say that others are unaware they have aligners on. Without the pointed wires or brackets, there's nothing to jab your gums or cheek tissue.

Invisalign trays are designed to be taken out for meals, brushing and flossing. However, Dr. Alfred Huber and his staff will advise you to wear your aligners 24 hours a day for best results.

If you think your gaps, overlaps and uneven spaces could benefit from Invisalign, contact dentist Dr. Huber and his team of professionals at Reserve Dental Group today at 561-852-7773.
