Orthodontic Treatment with Aligners
Orthodontic treatments can give you the straight smile that you deserve. Clear aligners are one of many orthodontic treatments and are becoming more popular — for good reason. We review information about this treatment here.

Not many of us are born with a perfectly straight smile. So, that’s where orthodontic treatments come in handy. 

For many years, braces — brackets and wires to encourage teeth to move — were the only method of straightening teeth. However, in recent years, clear aligners are becoming the treatment of choice for achieving a straight smile because they’re both comfortable and discreet.

Invisalign® is a popular brand of aligners consisting of a comfortable and flexible material that can gradually move the position of your teeth safely and effectively. 

Our team led by Nodesh Shyamsunder, BDS, and Jasleen Raina, DDS, at Beaches Dentistry located in Jacksonville Beach, Florida, offers Invisalign for those looking to straighten their smile without the hassle of traditional braces. In this blog, we review more information about this popular orthodontic treatment.

The benefits of choosing Invisalign

There’s a myriad of dental issues that Invisalign can address. This includes misaligned bites — or malocclusions — such as underbites, overbites, and crossbites; gapped teeth; or crooked teeth. These aligners can correct all these things without bulky wires and brackets.

These are some of the other benefits that Invisalign has to offer:

  • Efficiency: It only takes 10-24 months for Invisalign to straighten your teeth.
  • Convenience: You can remove your aligners to eat and brush your teeth.
  • Comfort: Invisalign consists of smooth material that won’t irritate your mouth and gums.
  • Discretion: The clear material blends in seamlessly with your teeth.

All these factors make it a great alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments such as braces.

How Invisalign works

At the beginning of the process, you meet with our team to make sure you’re a good candidate for Invisalign. After a thorough dental exam, if we determine that Invisalign is right for you, we take digital scans of your teeth. These scans are uploaded to the Invisalign software, so their lab can make custom aligners tailored uniquely to you.

After your aligners are ready, you start wearing them for 20-22 hours daily, taking them out only to eat and brush your teeth. About every week or so, you change your aligners for a new set to continue shifting your teeth to their desired position. Every six weeks, you visit us for check-ins to ensure everything is progressing well.

What our patients are saying 
Dr. Raina has been an outstanding orthodontist for me! I needed upper and lower braces as an adult and she made the entire process a fantastic experience! The entire office staff is so kind, patient, and personable! Another plus is having my dentist, Dr. Nodesh, in the same office so cleanings and routine dental checkups could overlap on the same day as orthodontic appointments.

 Best most thorough and least pain giving dentist I’ve ever experienced. I am 74 years old, blessed with excellent teeth and am particular about them. The office is equipped with the latest medical equipment and accessories. If you are in the market for a new dentist, this is the place.
