Life with Invisalign

What is life like with Invisalign?  Fishbein Orthodontics is proud to be one of the leading providers of the Invisalign system in all of northwest Florida. In this article, we would like to share our Invisalign experience with you.


In contrast to traditional braces, Invisalign uses sets of clear aligners, customized to your teeth via 3D scanning and computer technology. Recommended wear for each Invisalign tray is 22 hours a day for about two weeks.


Fewer Doctor Visits

Treatment takes anywhere from six months to eighteen months with visits every six to eight weeks to check your progress. At Fishbein Orthodontics, you can even come in on Saturdays!


No Wires

There’s no tightening or adjustments as with traditional braces, and no uncomfortable metal brackets or wires to cause irritation. The Invisalign trays are thin, smooth, and relatively comfortable as they move the teeth with slight pressure.



The Invisalign trays are virtually invisible – they won’t show up in most photographs.  The trays are also removable, so they can be taken out for important events.


Easy Dental Care

The Invisalign trays can be removed to brush and floss you teeth, as well as for professional dental cleanings.  Invisalign clear aligners are more hygienic then traditional braces as there are no brackets or wires.


Eat Anything

Because the Invisalign trays can be removed to eat, you can maintain your normal diet with no food restrictions. No need to avoid popcorn, nuts, gum, corn chops, pretzels, cookies, sticky foods, hard rolls, hard fruit, corn on the cob, and much more. This is a big deal, especially if you love food. Just be sure to brush and floss.


Life with Invisalign


Be Active

As there are no sharp brackets that can cut your mouth during sports or physical activity, you can continue to be active and play sports without extra worry.
