ROS Admin | November 27, 2023


Have you ever wished for a straighter, healthier smile without the hassle or appearance of metal braces? You’re not alone. In the world of orthodontics, Invisalign has stepped into the spotlight, offering a fresh and modern approach to achieving that picture-perfect smile. Dr. Ricci, an expert with years of hands-on experience, is here to shed light on the Invisalign journey. Let’s delve into the story of Invisalign and how Dr. Ricci is making her patients’ dream smiles a reality.

Introducing Dr. Ricci

Originating from the vibrant heart of South Florida, Dr. Ricci’s life has been a tale of passion, dedication, and the pursuit of perfection. Doral has become her home and the hub of her orthodontic practice, but let’s rewind a bit and understand her journey.

  • Roots and Journey: Growing up in a spirited Cuban family, Dr. Ricci’s heart always yearned for community and connection. After diverse experiences across Virginia and North Carolina, she, alongside her husband Jonathan, chose to plant their roots back in Florida. They wanted their two daughters to grow up surrounded by family and childhood friends.
  • Why Orthodontics?: Have you ever experienced firsthand the excitement of seeing someone’s transformed smile? That joy, that newfound confidence – it left an indelible mark on young Dr. Ricci. She knew she wanted to be the magician behind such transformations. Today, she doesn’t just treat teeth; she crafts smiles, instilling true joy and confidence in every patient.

Why the Buzz around Invisalign?

Now, we’ve all seen or heard of traditional braces, those “metal tracks” that run across one’s teeth. But what if there was a more discreet, comfortable, and convenient way? Enter Invisalign.

  1. Transparency (Clear): Invisalign aligners are virtually “invisible”. Imagine straightening your teeth without those noticeable metal brackets. They are clear and subtle, making them a favored choice for those who wish to keep their treatment low-key.
  2. Cleanliness: Dental hygiene becomes uncomplicated with Invisalign. The reason? These aligners can be easily removed. This means you can maintain your brushing and flossing routine without any obstacles, ensuring optimal oral health throughout the entirety of orthodontic treatment.
  3. Convenience: Freedom is a word that resonates deeply with Invisalign users. Why? Because they are free from dietary restrictions and the frequent orthodontist visits associated with traditional braces. Remove the aligners during meals, enjoy your favorite foods, and benefit from extended intervals between check-ups.
  4. Comfort: Comfort isn’t just about physical ease. It’s about the peace of mind knowing you’re avoiding the abrasiveness of metal wires and brackets. Invisalign aligners are not only gentle to your mouth but also apply an even force, making the tooth movement process smoother.

Addressing Invisalign Myths

With innovations come myths, and Dr. Ricci is here to debunk them.

  • “Invisalign isn’t for complicated cases”: It’s not just about the tool; it’s about the craftsman wielding it. Dr. Ricci has transformed some of the most challenging orthodontic cases using Invisalign– showcasing that it’s the expertise, not just the equipment, that counts.
  • Worries about Insurance: Orthodontic treatments can be a large investment, and insurance coverage is a legitimate concern. The good news? If your insurance plan covers orthodontic treatment, it will cover treatment with Invisalign just like it would braces. Dr. Ricci’s team is always ready to assist with insurance verifications.
  • Age-Related Concerns: Invisalign isn’t age-biased. Whether you’re a teenager or an adult, Invisalign is a viable option. Interestingly, Dr. Ricci often finds adolescents to be some of her most compliant and successful Invisalign patients.

The Working Principle of Invisalign

How does a clear piece of plastic move teeth? Here’s a simplified breakdown.

Invisalign treatment is based on a series of tailor-made aligners. These aligners, while seemingly simple, are the result of advanced 3D modeling and precision engineering. Dr. Ricci meticulously plans the treatment, ensuring each aligner applies the right amount of force in the right direction within the biologic limits of your bone and gingival tissue.

Duration: Unlike traditional braces where adjustments are frequent, Invisalign offers a more streamlined approach. Typically, you’ll switch to a new aligner every week, committing to wearing them for about 22 hours a day, but you will receive between 8-12 aligners at a time depending on your case. The remaining two hours give you the freedom to eat and maintain good oral hygiene.

Invisalign’s Global Impact

Globally, over 16 million smiles have been transformed using Invisalign. Its popularity isn’t just because of its clear design but also the freedom and convenience it offers to its users. Whether it’s about correcting crowding, spacing, or bite issues, Invisalign has proven itself as the most advanced clear aligner system in the world.

It’s an Art

Orthodontics isn’t merely a science; it’s an art. It’s about understanding individual needs and crafting smiles that radiate confidence. Dr. Ricci, with her expertise, is here to guide, treat, and ensure that your journey to a beautiful smile is as smooth and comfortable as possible.
