February 5, 2014 /MM-prReach/ —
Sarasota, FL cosmetic dentist, Dr. Baltasar Jimenez recently introduced Invisalign to offer patients a better alternative than tradition braces to get a straight, beautiful smile. Instead of traditional metal wires and brackets, Invisalign instead uses soft, clear, plastic aligners to gradually shift teeth into place over the course of 9-18 months.
Invisalign is some of the latest technology for cosmetic dentistry and orthodontia that is helping patients of all ages achieve an improved smile while not having to alter their overall appearance in the process, like they would have to with traditional braces.
“We’re excited to offer Invisalign to our teen and adult patients who have always wanted a straighter, more attractive smile, but didn’t want to resort to the hassle and appearance of traditional braces,” said Dr. Baltasar Jimenez, Invisalign dentist in Sarasota, FL. “With Invisalign, our patients have a lot more flexibility with their lifestyle and can feel confident about their smile even during the course of treatment.”
Invisalign patients are instructed to wear their aligners for the large majority of the day, however, remove them while eating and for brushing and flossing. As such, patients don’t have dietary restrictions during the course of their treatment. Because the aligners can be easily removed, it also allows for greater flexibility since patients can remove them for special events like interviews, meetings, family photos, etc.
To create the aligners, Dr. Jimenez uses advanced 3D imaging technology to design a series of aligners that the patient will wear for several consecutive months. Patients wear a new set of aligners approximately every three weeks, and return to the dentist every six weeks for a checkup.
In addition to Invisalign, Dr. Jimenez and his staff at Beneva Dental provide a wide range of preventative, restorative, and cosmetic dental care. For patients with missing or failing teeth, Dr. Jimenez is a certified dental implants dentist in Sarasota, FL. For patients who want a more relaxing dental visit, Dr. Jimenez is also a trained sedation dentist in Sarasota, FL. They provide a variety of cosmetic techniques including teeth whitening, bonding, veneers, crowns, bridges, and more.
Dr. Jimenez is originally from San Juan, Puerto Rico but has been a practicing dentist in the Sarasota area for more than 25 years. He is committed to continuing education in dentistry, and regularly attends courses to stay up-to-date with the latest dental technology, tools, and procedures to ensure that he and his staff are providing the highest standard of care.
