    Each year, more than 5 million American adults and teens undergo orthodontic treatment to achieve straighter smiles. But a large majority of those patients who receive traditional metal braces experience a decline in dental health during treatment due to the difficulty of maintaining proper oral hygiene with metal wires and brackets. Using the latest orthodontic technology, Dr. Jeff Bartlett is helping patients in the Fort Lauderdale, FL area achieve straighter smiles with invisible braces that also help patients maintain healthier smiles.

    A proper hygiene routine for patients with traditional metal braces can take up to 30 minutes. Not only do braces patients have the complexity of brushing around metal brackets, but flossing between teeth and wires requires special flossing products for the painstaking process. Due to these circumstances, many patients neglect proper hygiene routines, and end up with excessive plaque and decay throughout the course of treatment. With the Invisalign clear braces that Dr. Bartlett offers, patients can simply remove their aligners and clean teeth normally, resulting in healthier teeth over the 9-18 month treatment.

    “Patients love Invisalign for the obvious reasons of better aesthetics and comfort, but we’ve also found that in most cases, patients with Invisalign also have less instances of plaque and decay at the end of their treatment because it’s just simply easier to brush and floss properly with the removable aligners,” said Dr. Bartlett.

    The invisible aligners that Invisalign patients wear are made of soft, clear plastic that is molded into trays that fit snugly over the teeth. The aligners can be removed at any time, although patients are instructed to wear them for most of the day aside from when eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. Because the aligners are removed while eating, it also eliminates the problem that braces patients find at the end of their treatment when their teeth are discolored due to the placement of the brackets.

    For cases of mild to moderate orthodontic issues such as crowding and gapping, Invisalign has proved to be just as effective as traditional metal braces in helping patients achieve a straighter smile.

    Beyond offering Invisalign clear braces, Dr. Bartlett is trained to provide a wide range of other advanced dental services for patients of Dream Smile Center. Dr. Bartlett is trained in advanced laser dentistry as well as a variety of cosmetic procedures, such as porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, bonding, and dental implants.

    Dr. Bartlett has been a practicing dentist for more than 25 years in the Fort Lauderdale, FL area. He completed dental school at the Medical College of Virginia and throughout his career, has stayed highly involved with continuing dental education courses. Dr. Bartlett has completed hundreds of hours of courses in advanced dental procedures, including Invisalign.
