Invisalign® — Clear Aligners for Adults

It’s easier than ever to achieve head-turning results without interrupting your routine. Lazzara Orthodontics pairs advanced treatments with flexible payment options, so nothing can stop you from getting the smile you’ve dreamed of having. Give yourself a glow-up!

What is Invisalign for Adults?

Invisalign uses a system of clear aligners to gently improve your smile  without using braces or wires. By wearing your Invisalign aligners for 20-22 hours a day and switching them out every week or so, your beautiful new smile will be gradually revealed.  

Getting a great smile shouldn’t interrupt your life. Dr. Lazzara has helped well over one thousand happy patients in the Jacksonville Beach and Ponte Vedra/Nocatee area get terrific results with Invisalign.

How Can I Tell If Invisalign is Right for Me?

Before Dr. Lazzara makes any recommendations, you will need to come in for a free consultation. During your consultation, we’ll get to know you, assess your orthodontic problems and needs, and then talk about your options. 

We will use a high-tech scanner to make a digital impression of your teeth. This digital impression or scan will be useful for diagnosis and treatment planning. We use your scan and the data from millions of successful Invisalign users to help plan your treatment. 

In the event that Invisalign is not right for you, we offer another great cosmetic alternative — clear ceramic braces. We will find an individualized solution to meet your specific needs.  

Regardless of your specific needs, we are confident that we can help create a beautiful new smile for you. Book a free consultation today to learn more.

What Are the Benefits of Invisalign for Adults?

Investing in your smile is always a smart decision. Improving the alignment of your teeth not only beautifies them, but it also makes it easier for you to keep them clean. By putting your teeth into optimal alignment, you will also reduce the wear they will experience over your lifetime. An investment in aligning your teeth today will pay off with improved dental health for a lifetime.    

In addition to the benefits to your dental health, you can look forward to the confidence your beautiful new smile will bring. With Invisalign, you can stop feeling like you have to hide your smile, and the comfort and flexibility of Invisalign makes it a breeze to integrate into your life.

Flexibility and Freedom

Since Invisalign doesn’t rely on brackets and wires, you don’t have to worry about potential irritation from your appliances. Instead, you can remove Invisalign at a moment’s notice and eat whatever you want without fretting about damaging your braces.

Easy Brushing

It’s easy to clean your teeth between appointments. And you don’t even need to change your established home care routine. Take your aligners out of your mouth before brushing and flossing, and then pop them back in when you’re done.

Less Visits And Shorter Appointments

Invisalign patients typically come in for routine visits every 10-12 weeks, versus every 6-8 weeks for braces patients, so Invisalign treatment is a great fit for today’s busy schedules.  Typical appointments last only a few minutes for Invisalign patients, so we are almost always able to find a convenient time for you to come in. 

How Lazzara Orthodontics Measures Up Against SmileDirectClub and Similar DIY Services

In recent years a lot of websites have started offering do-it-yourself, mail-order aligner treatment. Companies like SmileDirectClub promise quick bite correction with cost savings. However, without the professional supervision of a trained orthodontist results will be compromised in many, many cases.

Achieving a beautiful, lasting smile requires planning and cooperation. During treatment, it is common for your orthodontist to change your alignment plan based on how your teeth react to Invisalign. Treatment doesn’t always proceed in a straight line. While you do the disciplined work of wearing your aligners during treatment, your orthodontist makes small corrections to ensure you get a great smile. 

Aligners are designed to shift teeth. When patients use aligners without proper supervision, they will likely end up with compromised alignment. Improper aligner use may cause irreversible conditions like tooth decay, gum loss, altered bites, and long-term complications. It’s no stretch to say that you can do serious damage to your mouth with unsupervised aligner treatment. 

Obviously, the appeal of do-it-yourself aligner treatment is reduced cost. Unfortunately, without proper supervision, you may end up spending a lot of money for compromised alignment, and potentially end up having to spend even more money to fix it later. 

Getting satisfying results requires the trained hand of an experienced orthodontist. Trust Lazzara Orthodontics to maximize the power of your smile.
