Certified Invisalign Providers in Boca Raton!
Consider Invisalign treatment to get the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted — without braces. During your consultation at our Boca Raton, FL orthodontic office, Dr. Nicolas will evaluate your needs and determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign or braces.
Dr. Nicolas is an Elite Preferred Provider with Invisalign, which means he has an exceptional amount of experience and expertise, in the top 1% of Invisalign providers in North America! Our orthodontists and staff constantly work to hone our skills and increase our knowledge to provide our patients with the best care.
What is it?
Invisalign treatment uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that allow you to smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to administer Invisalign treatment.
Why would I want it?
Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires, which also usually means you spend less time at our Boca Raton orthodontic office getting adjustments. Invisalign treatment also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How does it work?
We use the iTero® digital impression system for our Invisalign patients. This means that we can take a very accurate digital impression of your teeth and their relationship to each other without using messy, conventional impression material. This also means that your records will be uploaded to the Invisalign website right away, allowing us to plan your treatment more efficiently and deliver your aligners faster.
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions. You'll visit Nicolas Orthodontics about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages nine to 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
Is it right for you?
The only way to tell if Invisalign is right for you is to schedule an exam at our Boca Raton office. After discussing your needs, as well as your treatment preferences, Dr. Nicolas will explain your individualized treatment plan and present alternative treatment plans to accomplish the goals you wish to achieve. During the initial consultation, our doctors will also discuss what to expect with Invisalign treatment, how to wear the Invisalign aligners, how to care for the Invisalign aligners, and how to maintain your beautiful result at the end of treatment.
