Are you familiar with invisible braces?
The Invisalign® system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the dazzling smile you’ve always dreamed of. Using advanced 3-D computer-imaging technology, Invisalign® depicts your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. Then a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth – and your teeth only – to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series, until the final position of your teeth is achieved. Your treatment time will be determined by our dentist in Dallas and will be exclusively focused on your specific dental needs.
What are the primary benefits?
Invisalign is practically clear. No one may even notice that you’re wearing these virtually invisible “braces,” making a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others.
Invisalign® is removable. Unlike traditional braces, you have the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment by simply removing the aligners. And you can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene.
Unlike traditional braces, there are no metal brackets or wires with the Invisalign system that could cause irritation to your mouth. Plus since your office visits during treatment don’t involve metal or wire adjustments, you’ll likely spend less time in our dentist’s chair.
And finally, Invisalign® allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How will Invisalign® effectively move my teeth?
Like brackets and arch wires are to braces, Invisalign aligners move teeth through the appropriate placement of controlled force on your teeth. The main difference is that Invisalign® not only controls forces, but also the timing of the force application. During each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move. These movements are determined by your doctor as he or she maps out your unique treatment plan.
How do I get started?
It’s simple, just call us to make an appointment. Like with other important dental decisions, sometimes it is worthwhile to seek out a second or even third opinion. Whether we are your first, second or third choice, we would be very pleased to meet with you!
