Dr. Bowman is in the Top 10% of Invisalign Providers in Florida

The name Invisalign cleverly merges two concepts: “invisible” and “align.” This innovative treatment straightens teeth using clear aligners that are almost imperceptible, offering a discreet alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign effectively corrects misaligned teeth while minimizing the embarrassment often associated with metal braces, particularly for teenagers facing the social and academic challenges of high school. At Brodie Bowman Orthodontics in Fort Walton Beach and Niceville, we provide the latest Invisalign Teen solutions. Contact Dr. Bowman today to find out if you or your child are suitable candidates for Invisalign treatments.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners are transparent, custom-made devices designed to straighten teeth without the visibility of traditional braces. These aligners are nearly invisible and can be taken out for meals and oral hygiene, offering a convenient, low-impact way to improve dental alignment. Treatment involves regularly updating to new aligners, gently and progressively shifting your teeth to their proper positions.

Invisalign vs. Braces

Traditional braces utilize wires and brackets that are affixed directly to the teeth to guide them into proper alignment. This method is highly visible, which can be a concern for those who are self-conscious about their appearance during treatment. In contrast, Invisalign offers a less noticeable solution through the use of clear, custom-made aligners that are virtually undetectable when worn. These aligners can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing, providing a significant advantage in terms of convenience and oral hygiene.
While Invisalign is especially appealing for those seeking a discreet orthodontic treatment, it is generally best suited for individuals with mild to moderate alignment issues. In cases of severe misalignments or complex dental problems, traditional braces might be the better option. Braces are often recommended in these situations because they provide the orthodontist with greater control over tooth movement, which can be necessary to achieve the desired results.

Is Invisalign Painful?

While Invisalign is generally less painful than traditional braces, some discomfort can be expected when switching to a new set of aligners. This mild soreness indicates that the aligners are effectively adjusting your teeth to their proper positions.

Improvements from Invisalign can often be seen as early as a few weeks into the treatment. Noticeable progress typically becomes apparent several months after starting, as your teeth gradually shift into their new positions.
