Well-aligned, straight teeth are not only attractive, but they are also healthier, more comfortable, and easier to clean. Crooked or crowded teeth and an improper bite can lead to long-term dental concerns that can become painful and expensive to repair. To treat these types of dental issues, Preferred Invisalign Provider Dr. Patricia Roach is happy to offer advanced Invisalign orthodontics to patients in Orlando, FL. Custom made for your teeth and specific needs, Invisalign clear aligners are more attractive and comfortable than metal orthodontics since they can be removed to make eating and cleaning your teeth much easier. If you are interested in getting straighter teeth with advanced Invisalign technology, schedule a consultation at Orlando Advanced Dentists to learn more about this orthodontic approach from Dr. Roach.

"Even though OAD is out of network I will forever call this my home dentist ❤️ Patricia is an amazing dentist! I love that they have an all female staff!! I had dental work done a few years back at Williston dental and had terrible service. Patricia has had to redo multiple fillings and has made the procedure absolutely painless, without anesthesia! I have had a fear of dentists and now that fear is gone :) I always know I am in great hands with OAD! I can’t recommend them enough :)"- L.H. / Google / Oct 20, 2022

There are multiple factors that can affect the alignment of your teeth: genetics, thumb-sucking as a child, the loss of a tooth or teeth, and physical trauma to your face or jaw. If your teeth are misaligned, it can lead to other oral health problems, including dental malocclusion (a bad bite), abnormal enamel wear, trouble speaking and chewing, as well as toothaches and jaw pain. If Dr. Roach finds any of these concerns during your annual dental exam, she may recommend an orthodontic treatment, like Invisalign.
Invisalign from Orlando Advanced Dentists may be ideal for both adults and teens who want straighter teeth without the discomfort, hassle, and appearance of traditional braces. While they do need to be worn for most of the time, your aligners can be taken out for eating and cleaning your teeth, as well as for special events and when playing sports. Far more comfortable than traditional braces that irritate and poke the inside of your cheeks, Invisalign clear aligners are so discreet that your family and friends will probably not realize that you are undergoing orthodontic care.
What To Expect
Your Invisalign trays will be created using digital impressions taken at our state-of-the-art dental practice. Once they are ready, you will return to get your clear aligners along with care instructions from Dr. Roach. You should wear your aligners at least 20 – 22 hours each day for the system to be effective, ideally removing them only for eating and cleaning. Over time, you will move through a series of aligning trays that will gently move your teeth into proper alignment. You will need to schedule appointments around every 4 – 6 weeks at Orlando Advanced Dentists to have your progress evaluated by Dr. Roach. The length of time that you use the Invisalign system will vary based on the original position of your teeth and your cosmetic goals. However, most patients wear aligners for about one year.
As soon as your teeth are in alignment, it is vital to prevent your teeth from moving back to their old position. Invisalign Vivera® retainers are created with the same comfortable material as your clear aligners and help keep your teeth in position after your treatment is complete. Each retainer is custom made at the Invisalign dental laboratory from digital impressions taken of your mouth once your treatment is complete. Our team will talk to you about how long to wear your retainers and show you how to care for it once it is sent from the lab. Dr. Roach will continue to monitor your bite and alignment during your dental exams to ensure your teeth remain in the correct position.
