At TrueSmiles, we understand the importance of a confident smile, and if misaligned teeth are holding you back, consider Invisalign in Kendall as your solution. Dr. Maribel Lopez, our experienced dentist, is proud to offer Invisalign – a modern and discreet way to achieve a straighter smile.

Invisalign® is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that uses clear, custom-made aligners to gradually shift your teeth into their desired position. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® clear aligners are virtually invisible, allowing you to straighten your teeth discreetly and comfortably.

Benefits of Invisalign:

The clear aligners are nearly invisible, providing a subtle and discreet way to straighten your teeth without the noticeable appearance of traditional braces.

Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing you to eat, brush, and floss with ease. This feature promotes better oral hygiene compared to traditional braces.

The smooth and comfortable aligners eliminate the irritation and discomfort often associated with metal brackets and wires.

Invisalign treatment involves a series of customized aligners, each designed to move your teeth gradually. You can visualize the expected results through virtual treatment planning before you even begin.

In many cases, Invisalign treatment may be completed in a shorter time frame compared to traditional braces, offering a more efficient orthodontic solution.

The Invisalign Treatment Process:

Dr. Maribel Lopez will assess your dental needs, discuss your smile goals, and determine if Invisalign is the right treatment for you.

A 3D digital scan or impressions will be taken to create a precise and personalized treatment plan.

Based on the treatment plan, a series of custom aligners will be created specifically for your unique smile.

You'll wear each set of aligners for about 1-2 weeks, gradually progressing toward your desired smile.

Periodic check-ups with Dr. Maribel Lopez will ensure your treatment is progressing as planned.

Throughout your treatment, you'll witness the transformation of your smile as your teeth gradually align to their desired positions.

The duration of Invisalign treatment varies depending on the complexity of the case. On average, treatment can take anywhere from 6 months to 18 months, but some cases may require a shorter or longer period. Your dentist or orthodontist will be able to provide a more accurate timeline based on your individual needs.

Can I eat and drink while wearing Invisalign aligners?

Cross Icon Image

You should remove your Invisalign aligners when eating or drinking anything other than water. Food and colored beverages can stain the aligners or get trapped between them and your teeth, increasing the risk of cavities. It's important to brush your teeth before reinserting the aligners after meals.

How often do I need to wear my Invisalign aligners?

For effective results, Invisalign aligners should be worn for 20 to 22 hours a day. They should only be removed for eating, drinking (anything other than water), brushing, and flossing. Consistent wear is crucial to keep your treatment on track.

Will Invisalign affect my speech?

Some people might notice a slight lisp when they first start wearing Invisalign aligners. This is typically temporary, and most people quickly adapt to speaking with the aligners in place. Practicing speaking with the aligners can help speed up this adjustment process.

How do I care for my Invisalign aligners?

To care for your Invisalign aligners, rinse them each time you remove them and brush them gently with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Avoid using hot water, as it can warp the plastic. It's also important to maintain good oral hygiene and regular cleaning of your teeth to keep the aligners fresh and prevent dental issues.
