Winter Haven Dental - Proudly Providing Invisalign® in Winter Haven, Florida


In the past, dental patients who wanted straighter teeth had to rely on uncomfortable and highly-visible metal braces. Now, Invisalign® has changed orthodontic treatment entirely. Winter Haven Dental is able to provide treatment with Invisalign® in Winter Haven, Florida for patients who are a seeking a well-aligned smile. 

About Invisalign®

Invisalign® is an alternative to orthodontic treatment with traditional braces. On average, the system takes about a year to complete and uses a series of clear, custom-fitted, plastic trays (aligners) to move your teeth slowly into a new position. You get a new tray roughly every two weeks, so you'll need an occasional office visit to receive new aligners, but there's no additional down time during treatment. Invisalign® results in straighter teeth that are easier to keep clean for better oral health.

Invisalign® vs. Metal Braces

With Invisalign®, you can take out the aligner trays any time you want, so you can eat and drink as you did before you began treatment. You'll also have a much easier time with basic oral hygiene. The metal wires and brackets regular braces use tend to make it extremely difficult to floss. They also can create more places for harmful bacteria to attach and hide, which can put you at risk for tooth decay and gum problems. However, Invisalign® is:

• Removable
• Nearly invisible and improves confidence for teenage patients
• Comparable in cost to that of metal braces
• Subtle and does not interfere with your daily life
• Able to fix gapping, crowding, and bite issues

Traditional braces are made from durable metals. They do their job and shift your teeth, true enough, but they are reflective and don't blend in with your natural teeth at all. Porcelain versions are less noticeable, but they still pose the same hygiene issues as metal braces. When you get Invisalign® at our Winter Haven dental office, you can be sure that your treatment is effective and discreet. Most people won't even be able to tell you're wearing the aligners unless they look closely. 

Comfort also comes into play. Metal braces can conduct heat and cold, leaving your teeth sensitive. The wires from both metal and porcelain braces can scrape the inside of your mouth, causing irritation and sores. Invisalign trays are plastic, thin, and smooth and don't pose these problems.

Who Should Get Invisalign®?

Invisalign® may not be ideal for cases of severe misalignments, but it still can treat a variety of conditions, including gaps, crowding, overbite, underbite, and crossbite. It's a good solution for business professionals or anyone who wants to keep their dental treatment discrete. Come to Winter Haven Dental and we'll evaluate you to determine if you qualify.
