Our Miami, FL dentist office is proud to offer patients Invisalign clear braces as an alternative to traditional orthodontic solutions. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign allows patients to discreetly undergo treatment without anyone ever noticing. Invisalign utilizes a system of clear aligners shaped similarly to a retainer. Each aligner is worn for around two weeks before it is swapped out for a new one. Over time, the aligners apply pressure to your teeth and encourage them to shift into a straighter position. You will enjoy the improved aesthetics and functionality of a straighter smile without the hassles associated with traditional braces. Learn more about Invisalign below.

Many patients put off pursuing their orthodontic options because of the inconveniences associated with traditional treatment options like braces. Traditional braces involve metallic brackets and wires that are firmly secured to your dental structures while you undergo treatment. Orthodontic treatment can last several months or even years, meaning you will have to adapt to the hardware being on your smile for a while. Additionally, traditional braces require dietary restrictions and additional oral hygiene precautions to ensure there is no damage to the orthodontic hardware. With Invisalign, we can help patients avoid all of these associated inconveniences and still achieve the same desired results.
Invisalign offers patients a wide range of benefits over traditional braces, including:
- Virtually invisible while in-use
- Easy to clean
- No dietary restrictions
- Less time spent in the dental chair
- Beautiful, predictable results
Are you a candidate for Invisalign?
Some patients may not be eligible to undergo orthodontic treatment using Invisalign. Invisalign is meant to treat mild to moderate orthodontic concerns. However, if your orthodontic needs are beyond what Invisalign can provide, our Miami, FL dentist office is happy to provide you with traditional braces instead. Your eligibility for Invisalign treatment will depend on the current condition of your smile during your initial consultation, the health of your gums and jawbone, as well as your orthodontic concerns and goals.
If you are approved for Invisalign treatment, our doctors will take impressions of your smile so that the aligners can be made. Once the aligners are created, you will be given them and instructed on when to use and replace them. If you have any questions about Invisalign treatment, or want to learn more about your orthodontic options, please schedule an appointment with our Miami, FL dentist office today.
