Invisalign®– Orlando, FL

No Need for Metal Brackets or Wires

A misaligned smile can be both an oral health issue and a cosmetic problem. Crooked teeth are known to make it harder to maintain optimal oral hygiene or eat certain kinds of foods, and they can cause you to feel embarrassed about your appearance as well. If you haven’t done anything to straighten your grin because you’re worried about needing to wear braces, you’ll be happy to know that there’s a more aesthetically friendly choice. Call our office today to set up an appointment with Dr. Russo to see how Invisalign could help you achieve the straighter smile you want.

Why Choose John E. Russo, DMD for Invisalign?

How Invisalign Works

After an impression of your current smile is taken, multiple clear plastic aligners will be made. You’ll wear the first set of aligners for about two weeks, during which time they should stay in your mouth for 20 to 22 hours a day. The pressure from the aligners will move the teeth slightly closer to where they need to be. Once you’re done with the first set, you’ll move on to the second one, and the process will be repeated until your smile goals have been achieved.

Indications for Invisalign

What kinds of problems can Invisalign help correct? The treatment can be used to address a number of issues, including the following.

Crowded Teeth

Teeth that are too close together tend to wear down faster than normal, are more difficult to clean, and make it harder to chew. Invisalign can be used to reposition the teeth so that they are correctly aligned.

Gaps Between Teeth

Gaps in your smile affect more than just your appearance. These spaces can easily end up trapping bits of food, which can eventually result in tooth decay (and may also leave you with bad breath). With Invisalign, we can move the teeth closer together, improving the health and appearance of your smile.  

Bite Alignment

Any type of bite misalignment – whether it’s an overbite, an underbite, or something else – can lead to issues such as TMJ disorder or bruxism. Invisalign can be a viable option for correcting mild or moderate bite issues.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

You’ll naturally want to know how much you’ll need to pay for Invisalign before the process actually begins. However, first we’ll need to complete an examination of your mouth and discuss your goals for treatment. This is necessary for determining how many aligners will be needed, which is a major factor when it comes to figuring out the final price. We can also discuss options like dental insurance and financing that often make paying for Invisalign easier.
