Invisalign For Adults At Our Houston Cosmetic Dentist Office
In addition to our metal dental braces, our Houston cosmetic dentist also offers Invisalign for those who could benefit from subtle dental braces treatment–including adults. In this article, we will discuss how Invisalign Clear Aligners work and why we recommend them to adults who are in need of a correction in the alignment of their teeth.
How Do Invisalign Clear Aligners Work?
As with any dental braces treatment, our Houston cosmetic dentist will begin with an orthodontic consultation in which we assess your bite. This gives us a chance to determine whether Invisalign is right for you based on your teeth. Once we determine this, we will take impressions of your teeth and map out the course of your treatment with our state-of-the-art technology.
Next, we give these materials to the team at our dental lab so they can craft your custom Invisalign Clear Aligner trays. You will wear one set of trays for a few weeks at a time, switching to the next set every few weeks. Over time, the plastic will gradually shift your teeth until they are correctly aligned.
Why Our Houston Cosmetic Dentist Recommends Invisalign To Our Adult Patients
Adults take quite the liking to Invisalign for various reasons, including:
Invisalign Is Barely Noticeable
As its name suggests, Invisalign is nearly invisible due to the fact that it was designed with transparent plastic rather than with wires, brackets, or o-rings.
Invisalign Gives Patients More Freedom
Unlike metal dental braces, Invisalign Clear Aligners should be removed by the patient at mealtimes. Further, if you wear your Invisalign trays as directed by our Houston dentist and keep up proper dental hygiene while wearing braces, then you may be able to skip them for a special occasion, such as for a wedding.
Invisalign Is Highly Effective
Though once seen as too weak to make a difference in the alignment of your teeth, Invisalign has been proven to be effective at correcting a mildly misaligned bite in about the same time as it would take with other types of dental braces.
