Invisalign® Aligners Dos and Don’ts: “Mom, what do I do?” If you have a pre-teen, teen, or college-aged kid, you may have heard this more times than you can count. As they grow up, you support and guide them as they learn how to navigate through life. School, work, friends, and their first love — you’re there to listen and with the right advice when they ask. But when it comes to straightening their smile, you may not be sure what to tell them. You know a straight, bright smile looks great. You know a beautiful smile can give them an advantage in life. But what are these Invisalign® clear aligners they’re talking about?
At Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, we’re here to help our patients and their families get the treatment that’s right for them. Invisalign® aligners are a popular treatment choice for teen and adult patients in South Florida, so let’s take a look at a few dos and don’ts of Invisalign® treatment:
DO use Invisalign® clear aligners to correct orthodontic issues like crowding, crossbite, overbite, underbite, and gaps between teeth if recommended by your orthodontist. These clear plastic aligners are designed to gradually move teeth into their proper alignment. With convenient and affordable Invisalign® treatment in the Miami and Weston areas from Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, your son or daughter can achieve a great smile.
DON’T leave orthodontic problems untreated. Crowded, crooked teeth and misaligned bites can lead to bigger problems down the road, such as difficulty chewing, jaw pain, headaches, and decreased self-esteem. Years ago, people who didn’t have straight teeth had to live with it, but today a variety of treatment methods and advanced orthodontic technology make straightening teeth and correcting bite issues easier than ever.
DO keep up with Invisalign® treatment between scheduled office visits at our Weston, Brickell, or Miami offices with Anywhere Orthodontics. With this app and a smartphone, Invisalign® patients at Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics can scan their smiles from wherever they are and communicate directly with Dr. Yazji. Anywhere Orthodontics lets patients with busy schedules get expert Invisalign® treatment on their terms – and with fewer appointments.
DON’T leave aligners out for too long. One of the great things about these clear, thin aligners is that they’re removable. So, eating, brushing, and flossing aren’t complicated by brackets and wires, and attending special events without aligners is possible thanks to Invisalign® treatment in Miami. But, Invisalign® aligners should be worn for at least 22 hours each day, every day until treatment is complete.
DO look for an experienced Invisalign® orthodontist for treatment in South Florida. There are a lot of orthodontists out there, but if you want Invisalign® clear aligners, find an Invisalign® Diamond provider. As one of the most experienced Invisalign® providers in North America, and Broward’s only Invisalign® Diamond provider, Dr. Yazji can help you or your child get a stellar smile.
