Invisalign is made from a high-quality plastic, engineered exclusively for Invisalign. It’s called SmartTrack®! They’re specially designed for comfort and easy removal. 

These clear aligners are FDA-approved, BPA-free, BPS-free, latex-free and gluten-free. They won’t irritate your cheeks or gums, and they’re safe to wear through the day and night. 

Every set of clear aligners you receive is custom-designed and made just for your smile.

It’s important to choose an orthodontist who has demonstrated experience in Invisalign treatment! You don’t want any surprises when it comes to you or your child’s smile. 

We’re proud to have earned Platinum Level Invisalign Status, meaning we complete at least 60 successful Invisalign cases every six months! Results are predictable with Dr. Morejón and Dr. Andrews. 

If you’re looking for an Invisalign orthodontist near Palm Coast or Ormond Beach, we encourage you to request your complimentary consultation with our experienced team today! 

We’ve found that the greatest results come from a completely personalized treatment plan. Your Invisalign treatment length will be determined on an individual basis, based on the severity of your condition and your compliance in wearing your aligners each day.

Your orthodontist will give you an estimated treatment length at your complimentary consultation, after we take your x-rays and diagnostic photos.

Generally, the average treatment time with Invisalign is anywhere from 6 to 24 months, but your treatment may be longer or shorter depending on your circumstances.

No, Invisalign does not hurt! Similar to braces, you may experience some tenderness or soreness the first few days after beginning a new set of aligners. You shouldn’t experience ‘pain’ at all throughout your treatment process. 

Over-the-counter pain relievers, like Tylenol or Advil, can help ease the soreness whenever necessary. Once your teeth and gums get used to the pressure of your aligners, the soreness will subside.

Invisalign requires compliance. You must wear your aligners through the day and night, for at least 22 hours, for them to be as effective as they’re designed to be.

You can remove your aligners to eat food, drink beverages (other than water), brush your teeth and floss your teeth. You can take them out temporarily as you need throughout the day, as long as you keep them in for a total of 22 hours. 

If you can’t commit to wearing your aligners this often, we have other treatment options for you! We’ll discuss the required compliance during your Invisalign consultation, and we may suggest another type of braces if you think this may be a challenge for you or your teen.

Invisalign works in a series of clear aligner sets. Each set of aligners is custom-designed to guide your teeth one step closer to their beautiful end position. 

Your clear aligners apply gentle but persistent pressure to your teeth to guide them into alignment.

We will give you multiple sets of aligners at once. Every 1 to 2 weeks (depending on your custom treatment plan), you’ll replace your current set of aligners with a new set. 

At your check-in appointments, your orthodontist will assess your progress to ensure that you’re on track with your treatment plan. During these appointments, we’ll determine how often you need to switch out your aligners and whether we need to make any adjustments to your treatment plan moving forward.

Yes, crowns shouldn’t pose a problem. Invisalign isn’t bonded to your teeth; it sits on top of your teeth. This means your aligners won’t pull on your crowns and they aren’t adhered to your crowns.

If you have dental crowns and you’re considering Invisalign treatment, we encourage you to reach out to us! Every case is unique, so it’s difficult to tell whether your crowns will affect your Invisalign treatment until you visit us for your complimentary exam.
