    • 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!

    People who wear traditional braces have a job to manage every morning and night as they navigate their brackets and wires to clean their teeth. Invisalign wearers have it easy. It’s only necessary to remove the trays to brush and floss thoroughly at least twice a day. Nevertheless, there is the job of keeping the aligners clean themselves, and there are plenty of tips to help make this happen.

    Consequences of Not Cleaning Invisalign Trays Properly

    It’s important to know what you’re working for when it comes to cleaning Invisalign aligners. Yes, the trays are clear and hardly noticeable on your teeth, plus each set is only worn for a few weeks at a time, but they won’t stay flawless if you slack on taking care of them. Here’s what could happen if cleaning isn’t prioritized:

    • Stains: Stains will build up quickly on Invisalign trays if they aren’t cleaned regularly or if you eat with them in your mouth. Once the discoloration appears, it’s difficult to make it disappear and your teeth-straightening method will no longer be discreet.
    • Odors: If you don’t clean something – especially something that spends 22 hours a day in your mouth – it will begin to smell. Aligners are coated in dried saliva, bacteria, food particles, and other gross things – all this together leads to smelly trays and a smelly mouth.
    • Tooth decay: When you have buildup on your trays, it lives snugly against your teeth until you remove the trays and clean them. This can lead to cavities, infections, and other oral health problems that could interrupt your Invisalign treatment.

    Tips to Keep Invisalign Clean

    There are several tried and true rules of Invisalign cleaning that, if followed, will keep your aligners clear, fresh, and nearly invisible. Here are some of the best practices:

    • Clean often: You aren’t married to the teeth cleanings twice a day. It is encouraged that Invisalign patients brush their teeth and clean their trays after every meal, which would add up to five times a day. Now that’s some clean teeth!
    • Keep it simple: You don’t need anything special clear your trays – use clear, unscented soap and scrub the aligners with a soft-bristled toothbrush. If you prefer, you can soak the trays in Invisalign crystals before brushing, rinsing, and putting them back in your mouth.
    • No eating with trays in: Invisalign must be removed from your mouth every time you eat so damage, stains, and breakage can be avoided.
    • Develop a routine: Know where you will be and when so you can plan your Invisalign cleaning around your daily schedule. A well-established routine is helpful if you can swing it.

    The Easy and Amazing Invisalign

    Every orthodontic alternative comes with rules, just like conventional orthodontics. Cleaning is just a fact of life and Invisalign aligners become part of your responsibility as soon as treatment begins. Brush, rinse, floss, and soak regularly so you have clean mouth and tidy trays.
