invisalign in Wesley Chapel

How does Invisalign work?

One of the most popular cosmetic treatment options for adults with crooked teeth, Invisalign is a brand of removable aligners that comfortably straighten teeth without wires or brackets. Invisalign works by using a series of clear plastic aligners which are made with 3D imaging technology and are incrementally adjusted to gradually move your teeth into alignment. Call today to schedule an appointment at your dentist in Wesley Chapel.

The first step is meeting with your doctor during a one on one consultation. They will examine your smile, discuss your orthodontic goals, and determine if Invisalign is the right treatment for you. We will take impressions or digital scans of your mouth and give you a sneak peek of your new smile with a digital mockup.

Aligner Pick-Up

When your first set of aligners arrives at our office, you’ll come in to pick them up and try them on. Your doctor will instruct you on how to wear your aligners to get the best results. Most patients are instructed to wear them for at least 20 hours a day. You’ll also switch out the aligners for the next set every two weeks.

We will be checking in every 6 weeks to make sure your progress is on track. During these periodic check-ins, you’ll also receive your next few sets of aligners. So long as you are diligent about wearing your aligners for the recommended amount of time per day, your smile will keep shifting into the right position.

Maintaining Your Smile

After completing treatment, you’ll get a set of retainers to maintain your beautiful new smile. These durable retainers will look similar to your original Invisalign aligners, but are better suited for long-term use as they can handle more pressure without breaking down. You’ll likely need to wear these every night to help keep your teeth straight for years to come.

Scheduling & Payment

Once you and your Wesley Chapel dentist have agreed on a treatment plan that works for you, we’ll help you schedule your treatment appointments. We can also discuss payment options with you at this time.

What can Invisalign treat?

When the upper teeth overlap in front of the lower front teeth, this is called an overbite. Overbites are actually extremely common, but they become an issue when the gap is too large. This can cause premature wear and tear, or you may suffer from jaw pain from misalignment. Invisalign can fix this deep bite and shift your teeth into a healthy position.


An underbite is when your lower front teeth are in front of your upper arch of teeth. Usually, this occurs due to the lower jaw being too far forward. Underbites can make it difficult to properly chew and speak, and may cause the teeth to wear down. In some cases, Invisalign can fix underbites, but severe underbites might require additional oral surgery to prepare for orthodontic treatment.


In an ideal bite position, the upper front teeth would sit slightly in front of the lower front teeth. Crossbites occur when some of the upper teeth sit behind your lower teeth. This can cause wear and tear, chips, and can even cause gum recession in some cases. This can lead to painful sensitivity or even bone loss. Invisalign can fix some crossbites, but we recommend coming in for a consultation to see which option is right for you. 

Gapped Teeth

While they are very common, gaps between your teeth can make it much harder to keep food from getting stuck in the crevices. These spaces are also more likely to harbor bacteria that cause tender, sore gums and even lead to gum disease if not treated quickly enough. Invisalign can close these gaps and ensure a straighter, more seamless, and healthier smile!

Open Bite

Normally the upper and lower front teeth touch when the mouth is closed. If this is not the case, it’s called an open bite. Open bites can make chewing or biting certain foods extremely difficult. Invisalign can reposition the bite gradually until all teeth are aligned and sitting straight.

Crowded Teeth

If there isn't enough room in your mouth for your teeth to sit straight, they can bunch up and overlap in uncomfortable ways that make brushing or flossing difficult. This is called crowding. Crowded teeth can make it difficult to brush and floss properly. If you aren’t able to maintain a good oral health care routine at home, plaque, tartar, and harmful bacteria begin to build up. Over time, this leads to tooth decay, cavities, and sometimes even gum disease. Usually, Invisalign can fix most cases of crowded teeth. Simply come in to speak with your dentist to see if it’s the right choice for your smile.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign utilizes a series of removable clear aligners to straighten your teeth much like traditional braces. Because they are essentially invisible when worn, they are quickly becoming the most popular choice for people who want to straighten their smiles without the discomfort and the hassle of traditional braces that rely on metal brackets and wires to move teeth into position. Plus, since they can be removed, there are no dietary restrictions, so you can feel free to enjoy the foods and drinks that you love. Invisalign used to be limited on the complexity of smiles that it could straighten, but with the technology behind Invisalign always advancing, we are able to tackle more complex cases than ever before, further increasing its popularity.

Are Invisalign results permanent?

arrow icon

In short, yes! Invisalign results in the permanent correction of crooked or uneven smiles. However, the final result is dependent on how well you follow Dr. Parikh’s instructions for wearing and caring for your Invisalign. While Invisalign’s clear plastic aligners are removable, they must be worn for 20-22 hours of every day to be effective, and to reach your desired smile in the time prescribed. 

Once your treatment has been completed, you’ll be given a special Invisalign retainer and instructions about when to wear it. Retainers are often worn for shorter periods during the day or at night, and are meant to keep your teeth from shifting away from their new position. If you follow Dr. Parikh’s guidance, Invisalign treatment will result in a lifetime of beautiful, straight smiles.

How long does Invisalign take?

Everyone’s smile is as unique as they are, so Invisalign treatment times can vary from patient to patient. Generally, though, you can expect treatment to last anywhere from 6 to 18 months for more complex cases. During your consultation at BayBreeze Dental, Dr. Parikh will use 3D imaging and modeling software to plan your treatment and determine the length of treatment. You’ll even be able to see what your grin will look like when it’s all finished! In any case, Invisalign often takes less time than traditional metal or ceramic braces.

Does Invisalign change your face shape?

arrow icon

Invisalign works by moving your teeth into a new position, which, in turn, changes how your bite is set, and how your lips and cheeks sit on your teeth. Patients with an underbite, for example, tend to have the appearance of a protruding lower jaw. After Invisalign treatment, the lower jaw is moved to its proper place, resulting in an improved appearance. You may even notice that your upper lip looks fuller than before, as the lower lip has been moved back.
At the end of the day, Invisalign’s primary goal is to restore your confidence by providing a functional bite as well as a beautiful smile.

What is Invisalign, and how does it work?

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth without the use of traditional metal braces. Instead, Invisalign utilizes a series of custom-made, clear, removable aligners that gradually and gently shift your teeth into their proper positions.

The process begins with a consultation with Dr. Ronak Parikh at BayBreeze Dental. He will evaluate your oral health and discuss your smile goals. If Invisalign is the right treatment for you, a digital scan will be taken of your teeth. This scan is used to create your personalized treatment plan, including the precise movements of your teeth and the duration of your treatment.

You'll then receive your series of custom-made aligners. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks, then you move on to the next set. You'll visit Dr. Parikh every six to eight weeks to monitor your progress. The aligners are comfortable, virtually invisible, and easy to remove for eating, brushing, and flossing.

Who is a good candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign is a versatile treatment that can correct a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crooked teeth, overcrowding, gaps between teeth, and bite issues such as overbite, underbite, and crossbite. It's a popular choice for adults and teenagers who want a more discreet orthodontic treatment.

However, not everyone is a suitable candidate for Invisalign. The treatment requires a high level of patient compliance, as the aligners must be worn for 20-22 hours a day. It may not be the best choice for young children or for those with severe orthodontic issues. A consultation with Dr. Parikh can determine if Invisalign is the right choice for you.

How long does Invisalign treatment take?

The duration of Invisalign treatment varies from patient to patient, depending on the complexity of the orthodontic issue. On average, Invisalign treatment takes about 12 to 18 months, but some patients may see results in as little as six months. Dr. Parikh will give you a more accurate timeline during your consultation.

Remember, the success of Invisalign treatment largely depends on your commitment. The aligners must be worn consistently, only being removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. If you stick to Dr. Parikh’s recommendations and instructions, you should be progressing through treatment with ease.

What happens after Invisalign treatment?

Once your Invisalign treatment is complete, you'll need to wear a retainer to prevent your teeth from shifting back to their original positions. Dr. Parikh will provide a custom-made retainer and instructions on how and when to wear it.

Regular dental check-ups and proper oral hygiene are also essential to maintain your new smile. This includes brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and seeing Dr. Parikh for regular cleanings and exams.

Invisalign is a fantastic option for those seeking a more discreet, comfortable, and convenient way to straighten their teeth. If you're considering Invisalign, contact BayBreeze Dental to schedule a consultation with Dr. Parikh. He and his team are committed to helping you achieve the smile of your dreams.
