At Freeman Orthodontic Specialists, both Drs. Freeman, Sheinis, and McCaffrey are orthodontic specialists and experts in orthodontic tooth movement. Additionally, Freeman Orthodontic Specialists are Elite Preferred Providers of Invisalign, treating more than 150 Invisalign patients in 2016 alone! That much experience has made us better at designing treatment to be as fast and efficient as possible while simultaneously delivering incredible outcomes on a predictable basis.
What is it?
Invisalign treatment uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that allow you to smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and have been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to administer Invisalign treatment.
Why would I want it?
Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires, which usually mean you spend less time at Freeman Orthodontic Specialists getting adjustments. Invisalign treatment also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How does it work?
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions.
Total treatment time will depend on several factors including your age, initial bite, initial crowding/spacing, the goals of treatment, and compliance. Most Invisalign cases range from six to 18 months.
Invisalign can be a phenomenal treatment option for many patients, but especially those who travel often, live out of town, go to college out of town, or have busy schedules. After the initial consultation and 3D intraoral scan (no gooey impressions at Freeman Orthodontic Specialists!), you will be seen four to six weeks later to receive your aligners. Following aligner delivery, you’ll only need to visit our Plantation, Ft. Lauderdale, or Lighthouse Point, and Coral Springs, FL office once every four months so we can assess your treatment progression.
The Retention Phase
While in the past, many adults were told that after a year or two, a retainer was no longer necessary, new research has shown that in the majority of orthodontic patients, some type of retainer is necessary to keep teeth in perfect alignment following treatment. These retainers can be fixed (attached permanently to the teeth) or removable (only worn at night and removed during the day). Each type of retainer has unique benefits and challenges, which we will be happy to discuss with you at your complimentary consultation.
