Welcome to the Antoine Dental Center blog!
We are your trusted source for dentistry solutions in the Houston, Texas area. And beyond providing competent care, we’ll make it easy for you to get the services you need.
If you are someone living with a rag-tag collection of teeth, we can help you transform that mess into a beautiful smile. And your life in general will be better when we are through with you. That’s because your orthodontic issues may likely be more than just aesthetic problems. Health issues such as increased risk for decay (crowded teeth are difficult to clean) or headaches and jaw pain (due to a bad bite or misaligned teeth) can arise if you don’t take action now.
But don’t worry, we can make the magic happen without the need for metal brackets and wires, and without eating up 2-3 years of your life.
So, how can we quickly make a major orthodontic makeover happen in your mouth without conventional materials and timetables?
We do it through a forward-looking technique known as Invisalign. This method was first introduced at the end of the 1990s and has been making patients happy ever since. This is especially true of adult patients who lack the patience for all the hassles that go along with classic metal braces. Don’t worry, we will explain each step of the treatment process thoroughly so that you can begin the experience comfortable with your choices and confident in your results.
Invisalign: A New Approach To An Old Problem
Invisalign clear braces tackle the problem of crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth by shifting things around in a series of transitional stages, each one getting you closer to your desired results.
For all that to happen, we rely on all the latest and greatest in dental technology to craft a succession of nearly invisible plastic aligners that are based on molds of your teeth. Instead of coming in for monthly orthodontic adjustments, you will be able to simply switch them out at home every two weeks to keep your treatment on track.
Rather than making use of stark metal wires and brackets, Invisalign aligners are made of a gentle yet durable plastic that feels natural on your gums, cheeks and tongue. And the good news is that they won’t be noticed by outsiders. So, no unwanted questions or rude comments will be aimed at you during work hours, or any other time.
You won’t have to alter much about your lifestyle, either. These smooth, comfortable aligners are also removable, which means that your eating habits won’t have to be modified. And cleaning your gear is as simple as rinsing the aligners under warm water! There won’t be any need for special tool to pry food out of your gear!
Overall, Invisalign is a safe, subtle, and effective program. And treatment time is usually only a matter of months, depending on the severity of the problems you start with.
Fair warning: Invisalign is not for everyone. But you should see if it could work for you!
