Would you like to straighten your teeth, but avoid the look and hassle of traditional metal braces? Invisalign® clear aligners may be for you!
At Busciglio Smiles, we are a Diamond+ Invisalign® provider helping patients in and around Brandon, Florida. We help adults and children transform crooked or misaligned teeth into gorgeous smiles with Invisalign® clear aligner technology.
Many people want to improve their smiles but hate the idea of wearing traditional metal braces or similar orthodontic appliances. Traditional braces involve brackets made out of metal or ceramic, which must be tied together with wires and rubber bands that pull the teeth together. While ceramic braces are much less visible than metal braces, they are still easy to see on teeth.
Invisalign® clear aligners are transparent and blend in with teeth so you can barely see them! With Invisalign® clear aligners, your teeth are gently moved into the correct position without any metal brackets, wires, or elastics used with traditional metal braces. Instead, with the Invisalign® system, trays molded for your teeth are used to carefully guide teeth into the correct position.
Our orthodontist Dr. Derek Busciglio is certified by the American Board of Orthodontists and is an Invisalign® Diamond+ Provider. Dr. Busciglio is a well-respected expert in Invisalign® clear aligner technology and has traveled the country to teach other orthodontists how to provide above-and-beyond Invisalign® treatments.
Invisalign® rewards orthodontists with their Diamond+ Provider designation after reaching a high threshold of documented experience with patients. Only 1% of orthodontists reach this level of recognition with Invisalign®. With this designation, Busciglio Smiles is one of the premiere orthodontics offices in the country. You can trust you are getting the best Invisalign® treatment available when you trust your or your children’s care to us.
Invisalign® clear aligners are the leading clear aligners available today. While you may have seen so-called “cheap” at-home alternatives on the Internet, you won’t get the expert care and professional guidance with those systems and the results may not be optimal. Do you want to take that chance with your teeth? Invisalign® clear aligners provided by our board-certified orthodontist are safe and highly effective.
Invisalign® clear aligners can help with a variety of common orthodontic issues, including:
One of the main benefits of getting treatment with Invisalign® clear aligners is how you feel about yourself. You might feel self-conscious about having crooked teeth or a large gap. With traditional metal braces, that feeling of being self-conscious could continue throughout the course of treatment. With Invisalign® clear aligners, you don’t have to feel shy about having a set of metal braces in your mouth. Your treatment will slowly and surely start to bring your teeth into the correct position, without the treatment itself detracting from your appearance.
First, we will evaluate your smile, which is complimentary. During that time, we will take a basic set of pictures of your mouth to review what’s going on and consider all your treatment options. If you are a candidate for Invisalign® clear aligners, we will discuss how the treatment works and your payment options. (Your insurance may cover some or part of your treatment, depending on your provider and plan.)
Next, we will take 3D images of your teeth using advanced imaging technology to create a digital impression of your teeth. From these images, we will create a set of plastic “trays” or molds that perfectly fit over your teeth. These transparent clear aligners are what moves your teeth into the correct position over time. There are no wires or rubber bands to worry about.
Generally speaking, you will need to replace your trays every two weeks as the treatment progresses. An additional benefit of Invisalign® is that you do not need any “adjustments” like you do with traditional braces.
In conjunction with Invisalign® clear aligners, we offer the VPro+ high frequency vibration device to speed up treatment in suitable patients. This device is safe and easy to use, requiring just five minutes per day of at-home treatment to significantly hasten your Invisalign® progress.
