Invisalign is a very popular alternative to the traditional "metal" braces. Invisalign gives patients more freedom and flexibility to continue to eat the foods they desire throughout treatment, smile with confidence, and dental hygiene can remain optimum.
Invisalign Uses the Latest 3-D Computer Technology.
As you move forward through the different sequence of aligners to the next, your teeth gradually straighten as prescribed by the doctor. Normally, patients are required to return to check the tracking of the aligners every 5-6 weeks, or every three aligners.
At each visit, your doctor will evaluate the movement and position of the teeth to make sure that they are positioned and moving as planned. Patients will also be given their next three sets of clear aligners.
Although Invisalign may not be for everyone, your doctor can determine if it is right for you. As a Certified Invisalign Provider, Dr Nilo Hernandez is specially trained and certified to evaluate your problem and develop a customized treatment plan to give you a beautiful smile.

Orthodontics is the part of dentistry that addresses improperly positioned teeth and jaws. Without correction, crooked teeth and teeth that just don't fit together well can lead to issues ranging from minor to serious. These include:
Orthodontic treatment brings about many benefits such as a more pleasing and attractive smile as well as a healthier mouth which will give your teeth their best chance to last you a lifetime! Specialists are referred to as Orthodontists. They have successfully completed additional schooling and have received special certification above general dentistry.
Your dentist or orthodontist will help you determine if you could benefit from orthodontics. Some of the things your doctor can use to help make this determination will be a review of your medical and dental history, an exam, crafting plaster models of your teeth as well as using x-rays and photographs. After these things are done then your dentist or orthodontist will be able to best determine whether they can recommend orthodontics and if so, they will develop a special treatment plan just for you and your specific needs.
If Need Has Been Established, It May Because You Have Any of the Following:
Moving teeth, retraining muscles and influencing the growth of the jaws requires the use of fixed or removable appliances. By applying consistent and gentle pressure on the teeth and jaws we can correct any of the conditions we have discussed so far. Our doctor, Dr Nilo Hernandez will be able to assess your situation and make sure the proper orthodontic approach is utilized for optimal results and reduced discomfort.
Please keep in mind during the orthodontic process it is very important to stay on top of your routine cleanings. Our dental hygienists are working with you as well as our dentist to help you achieve the best result possible while also maintaining good oral health. Wearing braces and other appliances can make it a little more challenging to keep your teeth clean, gums free of gingivitis and remain cavity-free so be sure to listen to our dental hygienist and dentist to help you achieve that beautiful smile we are all working toward.
