Invisalign in Spring and Louetta, TX

If you picture braces do you immediately think of a mouth full of metal brackets and wires? While this is certainly the image that many of us remember from childhood, for teens and adults who are now looking for an orthodontic treatment that will straighten their smiles, they can benefit from virtually invisible braces known as Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a series of clear, plastic aligners that are custom-made to fit each patient’s upper and lower teeth. When you come in for a consultation we will first determine if Invisalign is right for you based on your needs and goals for treatment. Then impressions will be taken of your smile, which will be sent to a lab where they will make you a unique series of Invisalign aligners. Each aligner is created to shift certain teeth into their proper position, as predetermined by us beforehand.

What is the Invisalign treatment like?

Once your aligners are created you will come in for your first fitting to make sure everything looks and feels its best. Each aligner can be removed but should still be worn for a minimum of 22 hours every day. The only times Invisalign should be removed is prior to eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.

Every two weeks you will pop in a new set of aligners until your treatment is over. Invisalign is an ideal option for teens and adults looking to achieve a straighter smile with little interference to their daily lives. Since Invisalign can be removed, unlike traditional braces, there are no dietary restrictions or changes to your oral regime. Invisalign makes it easy to go about your life without having to change everything for your treatment.

How long does the Invisalign treatment take?

On average, treatment typically takes about one year for adults and for teens the length of treatment is comparable to wearing traditional braces. When you come in for your consultation we will be able to give you an estimate on how long your orthodontic treatment should take.

If you are dealing with common malocclusions like overbites, underbites, crossbites and open bites, as well as gaps between teeth and overcrowding then it’s time to find out if Invisalign could help get you on the right track to a healthier, more attractive smile.

Why Do People Prefer Invisalign

There are a few key reasons why dental patients specifically ask for Invisalign over metal or ceramic braces. Explore whether these reasons apply to your unique case:

  • They are working professionals who are required to speak often at business meetings and conferences (the trays can be removed at will)
  • They want to be able to enjoy their favorite foods that aren’t easy to eat when wearing permanent braces (like corn on the cob)
  • They don’t want to experience the discomfort that is common in the early stages of wearing metal braces
  • The treatment period for Invisalign is usually shorter compared to traditional braces
