Mail Order Braces Aren’t Your Best Fit

Mail order braces ads are all over the internet, in magazines and your social media feeds. Sadly, some people are not suitable for online braces. That means you could actually damage your smile.

Invisalign_dentist_Delray_BeachWhat are Mail Order Braces?

Mail order braces are clear plastic aligners that are designed to gradually push teeth into the desired position. Unfortunately, you will never visit a dentist if you order braces online.

Pictures that you take are sent to the manufacturer. While some companies claim that a dentist looks over the pictures, you can never be too sure and that’s where your cosmetic dentist in Delray Beach comes in.

A Patented and Preferred Tooth Straightening System

A patented tooth straightening system, Invisalign® uses 11 to 31 sets of clear plastic aligners. Unlike online braces, Invisalign® requires a preferred and licensed dentist to administer.

Not all patients are suitable for clear braces. People who have severe under or overbites, or people with seriously tipped teeth may fare better with conventional wires and brackets. Anyone can order braces online and that is where the problems arise.

How Invisalign® Works

Your dentist in Delray Beach takes pictures and creates a blueprint for your Invisalign® prescription. Dr. George Sanchez will then order your new aligners. When your aligners arrive, you will wear them for 22 hours every day removing when you eat, drink, brush, and floss. Because they are removable, you will not have to worry about the problems that come with old school braces.

While some patients see results in as little as six months, most have a straighter smile in 12 to 18 months.

If you have been considering mail order braces, call and talk to Dr. George first. After all, you only have one smile, make sure you keep it healthy.

Clear Braces Delray Beach Could Be the Answer

If you would like straighter teeth, but think you are too old for conventional wires and brackets, talk to Dr. George Dental. With Invisalign®, you don’t have to resort to old school braces. Invisalign® is the clear way to a straighter smile, and best of all, the clear aligners from Invisalign® are comfortable and convenient.

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is a system of clear plastic aligners that gently move your teeth into position. Unlike conventional wires and brackets, you will not have to sit in the dentist’s chair every two weeks to have your braces adjusted. You will only need to see Dr. George every six to eight weeks to make sure everything is going to plan.

Invisalign® Can Help With:
  • Overbites
  • Under Bites
  • Tipped or Rotated Teeth
  • Crooked Teeth
  • Cross Bites
  • Crowded Teeth
  • Gappy Teeth

Although Invisalign® can address the problems above, it may not be the best solution if you have a complex orthodontic issue. If your teeth are severely rotated or you have a deep under bite, Dr. George may recommend conventional wires and brackets.

The Clear Braces Process

If you are a good candidate for clear braces, which will be determined with a thorough examination and consultation by Dr. George, x-rays and digital images will be taken and sent to the Invisalign® lab for manufacture.

Once your aligners are ready, Dr. George will insert your first set of clear braces. Depending on your custom-made Invisalign® blueprint, you will be given between 11 and 31 sets of clear braces. These will be replaced every two weeks as your new smile begins to take shape.

The Advantages of Clear Braces
  • Unlike wires and brackets, which stay on your teeth, clear braces are removed when you eat, brush, and floss. This makes it easier to practice good oral hygiene habits. It is impossible to brush under the wires and brackets increasing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
  • Invisible braces are more comfortable than standard wires and brackets. Because they are made from pliable dental plastic materials, you will be more comfortable. Invisalign® is also nearly invisible. The only ones who will know you are having your teeth straightened are you and Dr. George.
  • Most people who wear braces are aware of the dangers that come with them. A broken wire or bracket can puncture your cheek or damage a tooth.
