Our team at Sunshine Family Dental understands how important your smile is to you and your overall self-confidence. That’s why we’re proud to offer our patients Invisalign, the revolutionary orthodontic treatment that helps you to achieve a straight and beautiful smile without the hassle and discomfort of traditional metal braces. 

Invisalign is a set of clear, custom-made aligners that are made to fit your mouth. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and gradually shifts your teeth into the desired position. The aligners are virtually invisible so no one will even notice that you’re wearing them; you’ll be able to smile, laugh, and talk with confidence knowing that your straight, beautiful smile is being achieved in the most discreet way possible! 

Invisalign is the perfect choice for busy adults and teens who don’t want to be burdened with bulky metal braces. The aligners are comfortable to wear and easy to remove for eating and brushing. And because the aligners can be removed for cleaning, you don’t have to worry about food getting stuck in the brackets and wires like you do with traditional braces. 

Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces

Invisalign uses clear aligners that blend in with your smile to gradually straighten your teeth, whereas braces use uncomfortable metal brackets, wires, and bands to adjust your teeth. Since Invisalign aligners are removable and non-intrusive, many people prefer them.

More Comfortable

Clear aligners are not only less conspicuous, but they are also more comfortable to wear. Invisalign trays are made of high-grade plastic that’s completely smooth. In contrast to metal braces, these trays do not cause any rubbing, chafing, or other forms of friction-related discomfort. From end to end, they provide a comfortable, custom fit without any sharp, extruding pieces or edges.

No Dietary Restrictions

Traditional wire braces restrict people from eating a wide variety of foods. A few examples include chewy candy, crunchy nuts, and uncut apples. In order to indulge in chewy, crunchy, or sticky foods while wearing braces, you must first cut them into tiny bite-sized pieces. It is also necessary for individuals with braces to spend a great deal of time brushing, flossing, and removing food particles from their teeth and braces. In contrast, eating with Invisalign is as easy as removing your aligner trays. You can easily brush and clean your aligners before reinstalling them. Additionally, they make it easier to avoid dental decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues that many individuals with braces experience when their oral hygiene is substandard. There are no sharp, worrisome extrusions to brush or floss around, nor are there trapped food particles to worry about. Choosing Invisalign is beneficial to your overall oral health. 

Fewer Office Visits

With Invisalign trays, office visits are only required every six weeks. This means that you will spend far less time in our office than if you chose traditional metal braces, ceramic braces, or any other alternative orthodontic appliances. For many patients, these treatments can be significantly shorter overall. With a customized plan, you can reach your cosmetic goals in a short period of time. This is the most convenient treatment for those who do not have a lot of time for regular office visits. 

Our team at Sunshine Family Dental is proud to offer Invisalign to our patients. We understand that each patient’s smile is unique so we work closely with you to create a customized treatment plan that meets your specific needs and goals. We’ll use advanced 3D imaging technology to create a virtual image of your mouth and teeth and use this image to determine the best course of treatment. 

Our team will provide you with detailed instructions on how to properly insert, wear, and remove your aligners. We will also provide you with a schedule of when to change to the next aligner so that you can track your progress.
