Dr. Carlos Medina has been an Invisalign provider since 2007, offering comprehensive clear braces for adults and teens in our Lady Lake, FL practice. No referrals are necessary, and you complete your entire treatment here with Dr. Medina. For nearly 20 years, Invisalign has been the leader in clear braces technology serving over 5 million patients worldwide. The predictable and comfortable alternative to traditional braces makes it easy to straighten your smile for improved oral health or to enhance other cosmetic dentistry procedures. By aligning your teeth, you can significantly reduce your risk of oral conditions like: tooth decay, gum disease, enamel wear, and TMJ disorder.
Invisalign uses digital technology to reposition and straighten teeth through a series of removable, progressive aligners. Each set of trays is worn for one to two weeks, gradually aligning the teeth as they’re changed out with the next set in the series.
With Invisalign, our patients are able to enjoy a discreet option for straightening their teeth. No metal wires or brackets are involved. Plus, caring for your clear braces is easy: just take them out during meals or when you brush and floss. It’s that easy! Since it’s removable and translucent, Invisalign makes it easy to straighten your smile without altering your dietary habits or other people knowing that you’re wearing braces.
Thanks to advancements in their clear braces technology, Invisalign can address many of the same issues that are corrected with traditional braces. Although more serious malocclusions (bite misalignments) may still need to be addressed with conventional orthodontics, Invisalign is an option on a case-by-case basis, especially with experienced providers like Dr. Medina.
Invisalign Teen is a modified Invisalign version that features unique wear indicators to make sure your teen is wearing their aligners long enough each day. As the indicators wear off, they signal when it’s time to progress on to the next set of trays. Plus, Invisalign Teen has options to replace missing trays that accidentally get misplaced during day-to-day activities. These aligners are just as effective and transparent as regular Invisalign, just designed specifically for teens to ensure compliance and to better notify you when it’s time to move to the next step.
Dr. Medina also offers ClearCorrect, a similar invisible braces system that mimics Invisalign. Clear Correct is great for cosmetic teeth straightening and short-term orthodontics for an affordable alternative treatment. ClearCorrect aligners are typically thinner than Invisalign, offer the same treatment time and can correct a number of bite issues. During a consultation with Dr. Medina you can better determine which option is best for you.
