Perfectly aligned teeth are one of the attributes of a beautiful smile. Unfortunately, not everyone is gifted with a natural, perfectly aligned smile. While traditional braces are an option, not many people are ready to commit to years of treatment with a mouthful of metal. The good news is that you have another alternative to straighten your teeth. At Bayshore Dental Center in Seffner, Florida, Dr. Omari Sheehy uses Invisalign to align your smile without metal wires and brackets. This revolutionary system uses smooth, clear, and removable trays to move your teeth comfortably, quickly, and subtly.
Wondering if Invisalign is right for you? This orthodontic treatment can treat several dental issues, including:
The best way to determine your eligibility for Invisalign is by booking a consultation with Dr. Sheehy. We’ll inspect your teeth and bite to determine your eligibility for Invisalign. Although Invisalign treats numerous dental issues, it isn’t ideal for severe orthodontic problems like tooth rotation, extrusion, and intrusion.
As part of your treatment, we use an intra-oral camera to take a precise scan of your smile. This method is super accurate and more comfortable than physical impressions used in the past. We then feed your digital scans into 3D software. This system maps out your treatment right down to the tiniest detail. You’ll get an accurate preview of your smile from the moment you start wearing your aligners until you complete treatment.
Once you are happy with your Invisalign previewed results, we will order your first set of aligners from our lab. After your aligners arrive, you’ll wear each set for about two weeks before moving to the next set in line. This pattern continues for months until you achieve your desired goal. Most patients require 18-30 aligners to complete treatment, depending on the severity of your orthodontic issue. After treatment, we recommend wearing a retainer to maintain the results you’ve worked hard to achieve.
Invisalign trays are virtually invisible. Other people won’t notice you are straightening your teeth unless you say something or they get too close to your face. Discreetness is hardly the only benefit of Invisalign. The other advantages of using Invisalign include:
We love our patients like family and we’re humbled to know they feel the same.
We’ve collected some of their words and we look forward to meeting new friends.
