INVISALIGN

INVISALIGN DENTIST IN STUART, FL

 

Dr. Crystel Riggs in Stuart, Fl is a certified provider for Invisalign for over ten years. She has taken several specialized courses to be able to offer the option of these “clear braces” to her patients in the Stuart, Palm City, Port Lucie, Hope Sound, Jupiter and Fort Pierce areas.

 

There are many options available for teeth straightening today. The traditional metal braces are slowly being replaced with clear brackets and now the even more popular Invisalign clear aligners. Instead of wearing bulky braces that trap food, our patients are telling us they love these new types of “clear aligners”. They find that it’s more convenient since they can remove them to eat and clean their teeth easier as well. In addition, they are virtually invisible, which a lot of our patients appreciate.

STRAIGHTER TEETH ARE NOT JUST FOR KIDS ANYMORE

We have patients that are young adults and even patients well into their 70’s that have done Invisalign!! Our adult population appreciate the convenience and the ability to remove the aligners if they have to go into a meeting or eat. Adult orthodontics is becoming more common especially for those patients that had braces as a kid and forgot to wear their retainers. These are referred to as “relapse” cases, where the teeth start drifting back into the pre-ortho positions. If you had braces as a youth and are noticing some crowding starting again, Invisalign is the perfect option for you!

HOW THE PROCESS WORKS

After we take an impression of your teeth, we submit them to ALIGN Technology who will create solid models. Together we diagnose and put together the ideal treatment plan for straightening and aligning your teeth for best function and esthetics. They will then fabricate a series of clear aligners that gently guide your teeth into the ideal position. Each tray is typically worn for approximately two weeks and then the next tray is used. Most of our patients are able to complete their treatments within about one year. Some of the simpler relapse anterior crowding cases have been able to be completed in six months or less!

HEALTH BENEFITS OF STRAIGHTER TEETH

In addition to the obvious cosmetic benefit of having straighter teeth and improved self-confidence that many of our patients achieve, they are commenting that their teeth are easier to clean and they aren’t trapping food or tearing floss trying to clean their teeth. As a result, they are coming in with less tooth decay, improved gum health and keeping their teeth longer! Crowded teeth can lead to poor chewing function, mobility, chipping, uneven wear facets on teeth and more likelihood of getting cavities. (Some people even call wearing the aligners “the Invisalign diet” because you tend to snack less while wearing the retainers!)

OUR GIFT TO YOU!

As part of the process of whitening your teeth, our office is pleased to provide those patients who wish to have whiter teeth a FREE tube of whitening gel, so not only are their teeth straighter but they are also whiter!! You can place the bleaching gel right into the trays as you are wearing them and in just a few days start to have whiter teeth as well.

ARE YOU A CANDIDATE FOR INVISALIGN?

Many people who have crowding or spaces are asking us if their particular situation can be corrected with Invisalign. While we can treat most cases with this modern technology, not all patients are ideal candidates for it. Young teenagers who have growing jaws and a mixed set of adult and baby teeth might not be ideal candidates for this process, as well as people with skeletal deficiencies may not qualify. We offer a complimentary no-obligation consultation if you would like to come in to see if you qualify.

MANY PEOPLE ARE CURIOUS ABOUT THE COST OF INVISALIGN

The cost is basically about the same as that of traditional orthodontics. Dr. Riggs is committed to providing excellent care to all her clients and offers a variety of affordable financing options for her patients.
