Many patients want to pursue straighter, more aesthetically pleasing teeth through orthodontic treatment, but the thought of wearing metal braces for months or even years on end understandably gives them pause. Thankfully, there’s an alternative available at Nawrocki Dental – Invisalign. Invisalign treatment consists of customized, clear aligners that each represents a different stage of the smile as teeth are gradually shifted. They are also removable, which allows patients to continue to eat their favorite foods, brush and floss, and even enjoy important occasions to the fullest. Contact our Cocoa Beach, FL office today to schedule your first appointment with Dr. Gary Nawrocki, or if you have any questions for our team.
After Dr. Nawrocki has determined that you’re a good candidate for Invisalign treatment, our team will capture three-dimensional images of your smile and jaw and transfer them to the Invisalign laboratory so they can create your new aligners. The numbers of aligners you’ll be provided with varies from case to case, but typically anywhere from 20 to 29 are necessary. The patient will then be instructed to wear their aligners constantly, save for when they’re eating or drinking. This is important because food can become trapped against the teeth if the tray is left in place, contributing to decay.
In most cases, patients need to switch out their aligner for the next one every couple of weeks. You’ll also attend brief appointments with Dr. Nawrocki so that he can gauge your progress. That’s all there is to it!
