Discreet, Comfortable Orthodontics with Invisalign

Crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth can detract from the beauty of your smile and cause a range of oral health issues. However, many patients avoid straightening their teeth because they think braces are their only option. At Planes Dental Arts, we offer Invisalign®, a discreet alternative to traditional orthodontics. Dr. Alex Planes is a preferred provider of Invisalign and can precisely plan your treatment to straighten your smile without interfering with your daily life. With two locations in Port St. Lucie and Vero Beach, FL, you can undergo your Invisalign treatment at the office most convenient for you.

Why Choose Invisalign?

For minor misalignment, Invisalign offers a variety of benefits over braces. Treatment with Invisalign is:

  • Comfortable: Your aligners are made with a clear, BPA-free plastic material. Their custom design and smooth surface allow the aligners to fit snugly against your teeth without rubbing or irritating your lips and gums.
  • Convenient: Invisalign is removable, making it easy to keep both your teeth and your aligners clean throughout treatment. Additionally, Invisalign treatment requires fewer appointments at our office. 
  • Discreet: Invisalign’s SmartTrack® material is completely transparent. Your friends and family may not even realize you are wearing them.
  • Effective: Using the advanced iTero® Element Scanner, Dr. Planes can precisely plan each tooth movement to provide the most flattering results. 

Since Invisalign is removable, you can also continue to enjoy all the foods and activities you love, without worrying about breaking a bracket or cutting your mouth. For some patients, Invisalign is much quicker than treatment with braces, making it a great choice for minor to moderate misalignments.

Planning Your Treatment

Invisalign can treat many of the same concerns as braces. If you are interested in this alternative orthodontic treatment, your first step is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Planes. He can determine whether Invisalign is a good option for you.

Invisalign is a convenient, comfortable, and discreet option that can straighten your smile without interfering with your life.

During the appointment, we will first take x-rays to make sure that you are free from any oral health concerns which need treatment. Then, we will use our iTero scanner to create a digital impression of your smile. This process takes about five to 10 minutes. Within 15 minutes, we can show you a live demonstration of your expected results.

If you decide to move forward with treatment, we will take photographs of your smile. All the information we have gathered is then sent to Invisalign so they can craft your custom aligners. 

Life with Invisalign

During your treatment, you will need to wear your aligners at least 20 to 22 hours each day. We recommend only removing them to eat, brush, or floss. About every two weeks, you will exchange your aligners for the next set in the series. The trays will apply consistent pressure to the surfaces of your teeth, guiding them into place. 

We will schedule a check-up about every six to eight weeks. During the appointment, Dr. Planes will check your progress and provide you with additional aligners. Once your teeth reach their optimal position, we can fit you with a custom retainer to maintain your newly straightened smile.
