Since 1980, Dr. Robert Burks and his dedicated staff have provided a range of high-quality dental services to the residents of Winter Springs, Oviedo, and the greater Orlando area. One of our most popular cosmetic dentistry services is Invisalign, which uses a series of clear, removable trays to slowly move your teeth into their desired position.

For adult patients who want to improve their smile discreetly, Invisalign is the perfect option. It’s a virtually invisible way straighten teeth, to give you all the confidence you need during treatment for greater self-esteem. Having straight teeth has countless benefits, both physical and psychological, and Dr. Burks would be happy to evaluate you and determine if Invisalign is right for you. Find out more about Invisalign and what to expect below.

How Invisalign Works

The Invisalign System combines cutting-edge 3D computer graphics technology with over a century’s worth of orthodontic science. The clear, smooth Invisalign aligners are designed just for you to gradually move your teeth, step-by-step, to the desired final position which is meticulously planned out by Dr. Burks. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your teeth at every stage of the treatment plan.

How to Begin Improving Your Smile With Invisalign 

Every patient beings with an initial consultation appointment, to help determine if you’re a good fit for Invisalign. If Dr. Burks determines your orthodontic issue can be treated with Invisalign, he’ll work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that fits your specific needs. We use our iTero Scanner to create high-quality images of your teeth and jaw with pinpoint accuracy. We’ll send the scans to Align Technology, the makers of Invisalign, to have your aligners (as few as 12 and as many as 48) made just for you.

Once your aligners arrive at our office, we will ask you to come in to get them. You will be instructed to wear each aligner for about two weeks and to only remove them when eating and cleaning your teeth. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will be moving gradually, week-by-week, until the final alignment is achieved. 

Benefits of Invisalign

There are many benefits associated with improving your smile with Invisalign including:

  • No uncomfortable or unpleasant appointments to “tighten” the appliance, making for a smooth treatment process.
  • Higher levels of confidence and self-esteem during treatment, which can reap immediate benefits in your social and professional life. 
  • No food restrictions to worry about - eat whatever you want while improving your smile!
  • No need to worry about keeping your appliances clean all day, every day. Simply remove your aligners to eat, and brush/floss your teeth afterward.
  • Fewer required appointments to make as Dr. Burks only needs to see you periodically to check your progress
  • Can be used to treat many of the most common mild to moderate orthodontic problems. 

It is important to know that patient compliance is a “must” with Invisalign. In order for Invisalign to work, the aligners must be worn for at least 22 hours each day. So before beginning Invisalign treatment, you must be 100% sure that you will wear the aligners as directed.
