Many adults who want straighter teeth put off or avoid treatment altogether because they dislike the idea of wearing uncomfortable and embarrassing metal braces. Thankfully, metal braces aren’t the only way to achieve a straighter smile. Dr. Makram is proud to offer FDA-approved Invisalign clear braces in North Naples. As a certified Invisalign dentist, he uses this revolutionary form of orthodontia to create beautiful, healthy smiles for patients who might have avoided care otherwise.
Instead of using metal brackets and wires to move teeth into their correct position, Invisalign uses a series of clear, acrylic aligners. These aligners are removable, making them easy to clean. They can also be taken out for eating your favorite meal and for routine brushing and flossing.
Your treatment will begin with Dr. Makram taking an impression of your smile and creating a detailed treatment plan for you. The Invisalign lab will then create a series of aligners according to that plan. Each aligner will correspond to a specific phase of your treatment. As you straighten your smile, you’ll wear each aligner for about two weeks before moving on to the next one in your treatment kit. As you straighten your smile, our Naples dental team will check your progress every few weeks to make sure that you’re seeing great results.

Whether it is crowding, gapped teeth, or a misaligned bite, you can trust that Invisalign will help remedy the problem:
Are your teeth sitting too close to each other? Do you struggle to clean between them and worry about the potential for tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease? If so, you’ll be pleased to learn that Invisalign can apply just enough pressure to your teeth that they will begin to shift and move into proper alignment. This will help to create the necessary space so you can adequately brush and floss, maintaining a healthier smile.
If you suffer from the opposite of crowded teeth and instead, feel embarrassed by the gaps in your smile, we understand. Not only may you feel embarrassed by your appearance, but there’s a good chance your oral health is at risk because of how easy it is for food and bad bacteria to become trapped. Fortunately, with Invisalign treatment, these clear aligners can bring teeth back together, eliminating the unwanted gap and keeping smiles looking and feeling their best.
If you are beginning to notice excessive wear and tear on your tooth enamel or even jaw pain developing throughout your temporomandibular joints, it’s time to consider orthodontic treatment. Whether you have an underbite, overbite, crossbite, or open bite, Invisalign can fix the problem and provide relief to areas affected by a misaligned bite.

The cost of Invisalign in North Naples is different for everyone. It is only through your initial consultation with Dr. Makram that you will have a clearer understanding of how much you can expect to pay for your upcoming treatment. Much of the cost is dependent upon how many aligners you will need, your retainer, if you require any preliminary treatment (i.e., periodontal therapy, tooth extraction, etc.), and if you require trays for just your lower or upper arch. While orthodontic treatment can be costly, our team will work to identify ways you can maximize your benefits as well as apply for flexible financing if necessary.
