You will begin by coming into our office for your initial consultation. This will involve discussing your smile goals, needs, and evaluating whether clear aligners are a potential solution. Your Dallas dentist will then use a digital scanning system to create 3D images of your teeth. This will aid in mapping your Invisalign plan, which includes each exact movement your teeth will need to make and precisely how long the treatment will take.
The images of your teeth will be used to create custom clear aligners that will make your plan a reality. These aligners are virtually invisible, and you must wear them for twenty to twenty-two hours daily to achieve the best results. Ideally, your aligners should only be taken out when you brush, floss, and eat. As your treatment progresses, you will be provided with multiple new sets of aligners every one to two weeks to help your teeth shift into the proper place. During this time, you will regularly come into our Dallas dental office to have the progress of your smile checked. Once your treatment is complete, you will receive a clear retainer to keep your new smile in place. Depending on your smile goals, Invisalign can take anywhere from eight to fifteen months.
Patients choose Invisalign over metal braces to straighten their smiles for countless reasons. Treatment is generally quicker due to how often your aligners are changed. The period between changes varies based on the age of the patient. Clear aligners are much more comfortable than traditional braces. If you have a busy schedule, Invisalign is perfect for you. There will be less of a chance that you will have to see us for pain, discomfort, or issues with your aligners. Many patients have concerns that this form of orthodontic treatment won’t adequately correct their smile issues in the same way braces can. This is false! Invisalign is effective in treating everything from crowding to overbites to crossbites. You are in good hands under our care!
Dental health is essential and can impact many other areas of your life. It is widely known that traditional metal braces can make it more challenging to perform your daily brushing and flossing routine adequately. This can result in tooth decay and plaque buildup, among other hygiene-related issues. With Invisalign clear aligners, you can adequately clean your teeth like you always have. This will result in less time and money spent at our Dallas dentist's office in the long run. Regular braces also bring the risk of broken brackets and wires, which can lead to injuries in your mouth, irritation, and discomfort.
