What is Invisalign Aligner - Coral Gables, Florida

Invisalign is a proprietary method of orthodontic treatment based on a series of clear, removable teeth aligners used as an alternative to traditional metal dental braces. Invisalign clear aligners are made of flexible plastic — specifically, a patented thermoplastic material called SmartTrack created exclusively for Invisalign treatment.

How Will Invisalign Treatment Straighten My Teeth?

Dr. Peggy Alvarez together with her Orthodontic Specialist will create a unique, digital treatment plan that maps out the exact movements of your teeth. Like traditional braces, Clear aligners are designed to move teeth a little at a time. Before treatment begins, the orthodontist will examine the patient, and take diagnostic records including x-rays, photographs, and impressions or digital scans of the teeth. From that information, the orthodontist can arrive at a diagnosis, and then work within the aligner software to design your smile and plan the treatment process – which tooth moves where, and in what order – guiding teeth into healthy positions, Then the Invisalign clear aligners are designed to apply the right amount of force to the right place at the right time based on the treatment plan designed by the doctor. Dr. Peggy Alvarez and Dr. Carlos Feo will be with you every step of the way to monitor your progress and ensure your aligners fits correctly. In order to ensure the proper result.
