If you're one of those people that never had braces in your teens, and now wishes you had straighter teeth, Invisalign could be the answer you've been waiting for. Dr. O'Neal and the staff at NuSmile will be happy to get you fitted with this clear and effective method for a straighter smile.
We are pleased to serve our patients from St. Petersburg, Clearwater and Seminole, and are glad we can offer an alternative to the traditional and often inconvenient braces. This method is especially ideal for adults who are established in their lives, and don't want to do things to drastically alter their appearance. Invisalign is literally and figuratively more flexible than metal braces, and is easier to remove and keep clean.
NuSmile begins with a three dimensional analysis of your teeth and the surrounding tissue, and uses that information to create customized aligners. Patients wear the aligners for about two weeks at a time, and then replace them with the next, slightly altered, set. Invisalign aligners are simple to remove for eating, tooth brushing, flossing and formal occasions.
Going further than just being invisible and convenient, Invisalign aligners are easier to maintain than metal braces. There is less concern about things like food, candy and other debris, and they don't cloud up during your treatment. Invisalign is also gentler on your gums and bones, and reduces the amount of stress and headaches you might experience with regular braces.
