How Invisalign from your dentist in Parkland, FL, can give you an outstanding smile

Braces are a conventional choice in orthodontic treatment, but they can be difficult to live with. They are often difficult to keep clean, difficult to floss, and they can cause you to get food stuck in your teeth. There is an easier alternative; it’s called Invisalign, and it can give you a straight smile easier and more comfortably than you’ve ever thought possible.

Dr. Hector Naranjo at Evolution Dentistry in Parkland, FL, offers a wide range of dental services, including Invisalign orthodontic treatment to give you an outstanding smile.

Invisalign doesn’t use brackets and wires. It’s a whole new way of straightening your smile because it uses dental appliances, known as aligners, which you can remove when necessary.

So let’s talk about why Invisalign might be a better choice for you than conventional braces. Consider that Invisalign offers:

  • Discreet treatment, because the aligners are clear plastic, making them virtually invisible to people around you
  • Comfortable wear, because the aligners have a smooth surface, with no sharp areas that can hurt your soft tissue
  • Convenience, because you can remove the aligners to brush and floss your teeth, and when you eat, so you can still enjoy the foods you love

Invisalign treatment is fast too because treatment can be completed in as little as 9 to 15 months. Invisalign is an excellent choice for both teens and adults, especially if you have:

  • An overbite or underbite
  • A crossbite or open bite
  • Overlapped or crowded teeth
  • Gapped or unevenly spaced teeth

You receive the first set of aligners, which you wear for two weeks. Then you move on to a new set of aligners, which you also wear for two weeks. Your teeth gradually and comfortably move as you continue to wear a new set of aligners every two weeks. You will visit your dentist every few weeks to make sure you are on track for your straight smile.

At Evolution Dentistry, Dr. Hector Naranjo uses Invisalign in Parkland, FL, for patients looking for an alternative to traditional braces. The benefits of straight teeth and a beautiful smile will follow you for the rest of your life, and Invisalign treatment is an excellent method for straightening teeth.
You wear a series of precisely measured aligners to gently shift your teeth into a straight position. Keep reading about the benefits of Invisalign, and come see us to straighten your smile!

Invisible and comfortable treatment

The most popular reason patients choose Invisalign treatment is to avoid the metallic look of traditional metal brackets and wires. The clear aligners are nearly invisible, so you can straighten your teeth while you still put your best face forward! Aligners are also more comfortable than braces because no brackets or wires rub the inside of your mouth.

Easy teeth cleaning

Because the aligners are easily removable, you remove them to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Brushing and flossing are much easier without brackets and wires in the way, making it easier to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. With traditional brackets, there is a risk of early decay when plaque and debris build up around the bracket. This can lead to demineralization, which is an early form of tooth decay. Your Invisalign dentist in Parkland, FL, will recommend brushing after every meal before you put your aligners back in.

Shorter treatment time

Traditional braces treatment typically requires about two years for the average patient. A typical Invisalign treatment plan lasts anywhere from 9 to 15 months. Invisalign also requires fewer appointments over the course of your treatment. Braces have to be tightened often to be effective. With Invisalign, you progress to wearing a new aligner after about two weeks, and only need to see your orthodontist about every six weeks. Wearing Invisalign is still a commitment because you need to adhere to your dentist's instructions for wearing the aligners for around 22 hours a day.

Invisalign treatment straightens your smile without the hassle of metal braces. Dr. Naranjo of Evolution Dentistry uses Invisalign in Parkland, FL, to transform smiles and improve lives! Contact us for an appointment at (954) 255-8055.

Is your smile, dull, damaged, or unattractive? A cosmetic dentistry treatment offered by your dentist in Parkland, FL, Dr. Hector Naranjo of Evolution Dentistry, can renew your smile and transform your appearance.

How cosmetic dentistry treatments help your smile

Issues with the appearance or function of teeth are particularly common and can affect anyone of any age. Fortunately, there's no need to live with a smile that doesn't make you happy. One or more of these cosmetic dentistry treatments may be just what you need to boost your smile power:

  • Crowns and Bridges: Often called "caps," crowns are hollow restorations that fit over the tops of teeth. Whether your crown is made of porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, ceramic, or resin, it will blend in with your smile perfectly. Crowns are used to hide flaws in teeth, improve the appearance of crooked or oddly shaped teeth, lengthen teeth, restore broken teeth, and prevent cracked or fragile teeth from breaking. Crowns also anchor bridges used to replace one or two missing teeth.
  • Dental Implants: Need to replace one or more lost teeth? Dental implants make it possible to rebuild your missing tooth from top to bottom. Titanium posts implanted in your mouth during minor oral surgery become the roots of your new teeth. They're connected to dental crowns, creating brand new teeth that feel just like real ones. Implants are comfortable, won't affect your biting power, and may last your entire life.
  • Teeth Whitening: Stains from foods, beverages, and tobacco may make your teeth look dull or yellow. Zoom! whitening in the Parkland dental office erases years of stains, leaving your teeth much whiter.
  • Invisalign: Metal or ceramic braces aren't the only choices if you'd like a straighter smile. Invisalign, an innovative orthodontic treatment, offers a more subtle approach to teeth straightening. You'll wear a series of removable aligner trays that gradually improve the alignment of your teeth. The trays are clear, making them practically disappear when you place them over your teeth.

When a cavity is left untreated, it can completely eat the inside of the tooth, making it hard to do normal activities like biting and chewing your food. In cases like this, it’s important to restore your tooth with root canal therapy. Dr. Hector Naranjo at Evolution Dentistry in Parkland, FL, can help you understand when root canal therapy is necessary to help restore your smile both aesthetically and functionally.

How Root Canal Therapy Can Help You

When a tooth is infected from an untreated cavity, it can lead to more serious issues that can affect both your smile and can even affect your body as a whole. Your dentist in Parkland, FL, can examine your tooth and help you determine if a root canal is the right choice to help your smile and strengthen your tooth again.

A root canal is usually thought of as something that is painful and scary, but it’s actually the complete opposite. Root canal therapy helps relieve your pain and strengthen your smile when you’re dealing with infection and irritation.

Your dentist will first numb the affected area to help keep you feeling comfortable throughout the entire process. Your dentist will then create an opening in the top of your tooth to expose the damaged and irritated pulp inside of your tooth. They will then clean out the infected pulp, helping to relieve your tooth of pain. Your dentist will then fill your tooth with a rubber-like material, helping protect your tooth from any further infection or damage from happening inside the tooth. They will then seal the tooth, which will stop bacteria from getting inside your newly restored tooth.

Dental implants have clear advantages over other treatments aimed at restoring your smile. Not everyone is a candidate for the procedure, and some cases may be best served by alternatives. When deciding whether or not they are the best option for you, your Parkland, FL, dental implant specialist Dr. Hector Naranjo of Evolution Dentistry can help.

Are You a Candidate for the Procedure?

Gum disease, weakened bone structure, and bad habits such as smoking, can all disqualify you from dental implants. Gum disease can be treated by your dentist, who may insist on improving your overall dental hygiene to ensure the longevity of your dental implants. A bone graft can usually solve the problem of bone strength, it just means a longer overall procedure. If you are concerned about your dental health then quitting smoking should be on the top of your list for the sake of both your dental and your overall health.

How Is the Procedure Performed?

What sets dental implants apart from other methods of restoration is the way they are supported. A bridge depends on the teeth adjacent to the gap to be reshaped in order to support it. For addressing multiple missing teeth dentures are often an excellent solution, but they are held in place by either suction or by employing healthy natural teeth to hold them in place.

Dental implants on the other hand are fully supported by a titanium post which is permanently implanted onto the bone, onto which an abutment is attached, and onto this your new crown.
