As it happens, orthodontic solutions are the subject of today’s post. Have you ever considered getting the situation in your mouth straightened out once and for all?
Our dentists know that everyone has unique dental needs. As such, our office has kept up with the latest dental technology to be able to provide you with more treatment options, more comfortable treatments, and shorter treatment times. In fact, if you have crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth, we think you’ll love the gorgeous grin that the forward-looking method known as Invisalign can deliver.
When Invisalign was introduced back in 1999, it was a real game-changer.
Our adult patients love that this technique is radically different than conventional approaches to orthodontic treatment.
Rather than metal brackets and wires, Invisalign works by employing a series of clear, plastic aligners (that are based on molds of your mouth) to facilitate the movements of your teeth.
Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible which means your treatment will be discreet and won’t attract any unwanted attention or rude comments from your peers. They are actually more like whitening trays than braces.
Using advanced 3D computer imaging technology, Invisalign depicts your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to their final desired position. Before you even start treatment, you will be able to get a preview of what your teeth will look like after Invisalign.
Every two weeks or so you must switch the aligners out yourself to keep things moving forward. Thus, there won’t be any inconvenient office visits required for tune-ups.
Not unlike traditional orthodontic wires, each Invisalign tray is specifically designed to move certain teeth, at very specific times. But the difference is that the aligners fit snugly for a more comfortable experience, one that won’t cause any mouth sores or irritation.
What’s more, they are not left in non-stop. Because they are removable, eating will be a lot more enjoyable, and cleaning will be a breeze. You won’t have to alter your diet or carry around special tools to remove trapped food. You just pop them out and rinse them under warm water.
The magic happens quickly too.
You won’t have to look back and measure years of your life by your treatment because the process is extremely effective and can be completed in about 12 months, depending on the severity of your dental issues.
Your Houston,TX orthodontic treatment will leave you smiling in the end. No kidding, the results are always stunning.
