Your Leading East Orlando & Avalon Park Orthodontic Provider

Wearing Invisalign aligners

At Dr. Ross Taddeo Orthodontics, we strive to provide our patients in the East Orlando area with exceptional orthodontic treatment and care in a warm, welcoming environment. We understand that altering the appearance of your smile can be intimidating, so we want to help put your mind at ease by being a resource to all of your orthodontic questions. For patients who are concerned with the bulky appearance of traditional metal braces, we offer a popular and more discreet alternative - our East Orlando Invisalign treatment.

Invisalign is a comfortable and low-profile aligner that is nearly impossible for others to see. Made of clear polyurethane plastic, these clear aligners do not draw attention like traditional orthodontic appliances that cover the teeth with brackets and wires.

Is Invisalign Right for You?

Invisalign aligners can be easily removed to eat, brush, and floss. This makes them much more convenient than traditional braces. Aligners should be worn for about 22 hours per day. Patients who have the discipline to wear their aligners according to Dr. Taddeo’s recommendations will enjoy the following benefits:

  • Comfort: Invisible braces are smooth - they do not scratch the cheeks and lips unlike brackets and wires do.
  • Improved oral hygiene: While traditional braces cannot be removed for oral hygiene purposes, the aligners can easily be taken out in order to brush and floss thoroughly.
  • Discreet appearance: One of the most attractive benefits of clear aligners is that they can be worn discreetly. Unlike traditional orthodontic appliances, most people cannot tell when you are wearing the Invisalign aligners.
  • Protection from teeth grinding: For those who have problems grinding their teeth at night, Invisalign serves an additional function of creating a barrier between the teeth and preventing them from getting worn down.

Our Invisalign Treatment Process

The first step in the treatment process is an initial consultation. By discussing your options with Dr. Taddeo, he will be able to determine if Invisalign is right for you. During your first appointment, our orthodontist will begin by scanning your entire mouth to create 3D digital images of your teeth. These images will be used to create your specific individual treatment plan. Depending on your teeth and treatment plan, you could have 12 – 48 different aligners. Your aligners are typically changed every week to every two weeks.

The aligners work by slowly moving your teeth over time. Each new aligner will adjust the teeth ever so slightly into their proper positions. Your last set of aligners will work as your final retainer as well! Depending on your treatment and orthodontic needs, your orthodontist may schedule checkups every six weeks.
