Looking for a straighter smile but can’t bear the thought of wearing traditional metal braces? Invisalign may be a good option for you.
The Invisalign aligners are removable and virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing! Plus, Dr. Sims is a board-certified Invisalign Platinum Provider, which means he has achieved a significant level of experience in treating patients with the Invisalign system. We serve patients in Pensacola, Crestview, Milton and Gulf Breeze.
Why Choose Invisalign?
Invisalign and conventional braces are both designed to give you beautiful, straight teeth, but Invisalign is a custom-made alternative that can make your entire orthodontic experience more comfortable.
- They’re Removable: Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want, when you want! You can even brush and floss your teeth as you normally would – there are no metal braces in your way.
- They’re Clear: These clear aligners are aesthetically pleasing and hardly noticeable, and they don’t require any irritating metal brackets or wires that can
cause soreness or irritability in your mouth.
- They Show Virtual Results: Invisalign allows you to view your virtual results before you even start your treatment, which can’t be done with traditional
braces. You’ll get a firsthand glimpse into how beautiful your teeth will look once the treatment is complete.
How Invisalign Works
To create your custom Invisalign aligners, we first build a picture of your teeth by scanning them with our digital ITero video scanner. This eliminates the need to take impressions and helps us create a 3D model of your teeth. The model is then used to generate a fully custom, clear aligner that you will wear for about two weeks, with total treatment time taking anywhere between 6 – 24 months.
Invisalign for Teens
Sims Orthodontics also offers Invisalign Teen, made specifically for teenagers and their busy lifestyles. Each aligner has a blue-to-clear compliance indicator that serves as a gauge to how long each aligner should be worn. When the indicator is clear, it means the aligner needs to be replaced. Invisalign Teen patients will receive six free replacement aligners in case some get lost or broken. Invisalign Teen works the same way as traditional Invisalign, and can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including overly crowded teeth, widely spaced teeth, crossbite, overbite, and underbite.
