    • Everything I have had done at Premier Smile Center has been top-notch. The treatment I received was thorough, precise and extremely professional. I never felt like just another patient because they took the time to listen to my concerns. They addressed my issues and we agreed on the treatment plan together.

      The staff is very friendly, warm and extremely knowledgeable. I felt relaxed and comfortable knowing I chose the right place to get the dental work I needed. Dr. Johnson is very humane and very knowledgeable, and she does amazing work. I like the friendliness and honesty of the whole practice. I was not confident with my smile, in fact I was very self conscious and rarely smiled. Premier Smile Center has changed all that. My smile is one of the things I like the most.

    • I was terrified to receive a root canal, but I knew it had to be done. After meeting with Dr. Johnson and Dr. Bui, I felt better about the procedure. They educated me on the process. I was comfortable and had no pain—which was my biggest worry. I love coming to the office. Everyone is super friendly and knowledgeable. The doctors and staff educate you on what they are doing and why it is needed.

      The dentist was a place I visited only when I desperately needed to, and now I’m in the office every few months. I don’t live near the office anymore, but as long as they’re there, I will be driving over to Fort Lauderdale. Thanks to Premier Smile Center, I now have healthy, pearly white and almost perfectly straight teeth.

    • When I first came to the practice, my teeth were in terrible condition. From the beginning to the end of my treatment, Dr. Johnson and her entire practice were outstanding, professional and extremely understanding of my needs. Dr. Johnson is honest and very hands-on, and the practice feels like a family and not a factory. Thanks to Dr. Johnson, I now have a great smile.

    • Coming to Premier Smile Center was a life-changing experience for me. Although I was a registered nurse, I had the worst teeth ever—a missing tooth, discolored teeth and a crooked smile. Dr. Johnson explained to me in detail how she could give me a beautiful smile. She and her staff have been truly supportive and non-judgmental about my teeth. Dr. Johnson is compassionate, understanding and a joy to talk to, and the staff are friendly, efficient and caring. They encouraged me to go on when I was feeling down, and now I can smile confidently.

      The treatment I received has greatly increased my self-esteem. I can smile and laugh unashamedly and join into a group conversation, and not just be a passive listener. I also have better health and nutrition. It is the best investment I have ever made for myself.

    • Premier Smile Center has always treated me like family, and my experience as a patient of Dr. Johnson’s has been nothing but satisfactory. Dr. Johnson is brilliant, and the practice is clean, friendly and professional. Before I came to the office, the condition of my teeth was depressing. As a result of my treatment, I have more confidence and less anxiety associated with a messed-up mouth.

    • Before coming to Premier Smile Center, I had not been to a dentist in some time. I needed some periodontal work done, fillings and wisdom tooth extractions. What initially struck me was the warm welcome I received from the front office staff, and I had virtually no wait time before I was greeted by Dr. Johnson. She was incredibly professional and explained everything she was doing as she conducted the initial exam. She made her recommendations and scheduled a return visit to repair some fillings and pull two wisdom teeth.

      What was truly amazing was that within 24 hours Dr. Johnson herself called to check on me and asked how my experience was. My wisdom tooth extractions went flawlessly, and I experienced very little bleeding and no pain during or after the procedure. Again, Dr. Johnson called me afterward to check how I was doing. I like Dr. Johnson’s warm and sincere concern for her patients, and I also like her professional staff. I am always impressed by the warm, professional nature of everyone in the office.

    • From the moment I arrived at Premier Smile Center over a year ago, Dr. Johnson and her entire staff have been amazing. Needless to say, anytime you have a cosmetic procedure done there will be nerves and lots of questions. Within minutes into my initial consultation, these concerns subsided. Unlike other dental practices I have been to, Dr. Johnson took her time and explained what I should expect from beginning to end with Invisalign. I continue to receive compliments on my smile every day. I love it! I have already and would recommend her again to anyone I know. A huge thank you to Dr. Johnson and the Premier Smile Center staff for making my experience fabulous!

    One of the biggest draws of Invisalign is that this orthodontic alternative uses clear, nearly invisible trays to straighten teeth. However, the trays only stay clear if the wearer cleans them properly. It’s not difficult to keep Invisalign trays clean and fresh – it’s only a matter of knowing the dos and don’ts and honoring them.

    Use soap and water.

    You can clean your aligners inexpensively with clear, unscented, antibacterial soap and a soft-bristled toothbrush to remove any stuck-on particles and keep things clear. Don’t use colored or scented soaps to avoid residue, discoloration, or an unpleasant taste.

    Use the Invisalign cleaning system.

    The makers of Invisalign offer a cleaning system designed to keep aligners clear and odor free. The special cleaning crystals remove plaque from the aligners in about 15 minutes of daily soaking and you can put Invisalign back in your mouth after the soak and a quick brush and rinse.

    No eating or drinking while wearing Invisalign.

    One of the golden rules for keeping Invisalign clear is to not eat or drink while the aligners are in place. You could damage the trays by eating with them in but also, you are more likely to stain the trays. Water is the only thing you can eat or drink while Invisalign is in place if you want to maintain the integrity and appearance of the aligners.

    Rinse the aligners every time you remove them.

    Rinse the aligners every time you remove them to keep plaque at bay and avoid a buildup of dried saliva.

    Brush and floss before putting Invisalign back in your mouth.

    Many patients groan at the thought of having to brush and floss their teeth more often, but Invisalign is a commitment and putting in the effort to keep both the trays and your teeth clean throughout treatment will be worth it. Carry a travel toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and your aligner case with you and clean your teeth after eating to avoid trapping food particles.

    Establish morning and bedtime cleaning routines.

    Morning and evening cleaning routines should be the norm for an Invisalign-wearer. You brush your teeth when you wake up and before you go to bed – just add Invisalign to the mix.

    After wearing Invisalign all night while you sleep, bacteria and saliva will build up. Establishing a thorough morning cleaning routine for your trays and teeth is essential to maintain good oral hygiene and keep aligners clean.

    Cleaning the teeth and aligners before bed ensures that you’re going to sleep with a fresh mouth and have a lower chance of bacteria of buildup wreaking havoc through the night.

    Find Out If Invisalign Is Right for You

    Invisalign does amazing work discreetly, but if not cleaned properly you’ll be facing discolored aligners that have a buildup of bacteria and odor. This will not only make Invisalign look gross, it poses a threat to your oral health if plaque and food particles are so snug against your teeth for long periods of time.

    If you don’t keep the aligners clean, people will notice you’re wearing braces – and the whole point of getting Invisalign was to avoid that entirely, right? Make the effort. Keep your trays clean. Get your dental cleanings. It doesn’t take much effort.
