Our Houston Cosmetic Dentist Offers Invisalign For Adults
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 mild correction in the alignment of their teeth.
How Does Invisalign Work?
As with any dental braces treatment, our Houston cosmetic dentist will begin with an orthodontic consultation in which we assess your bite. After we determine that Invisalign is right for you, we’ll take impressions of your teeth and map out the course of your treatment with our advanced technology.
Next, we give these materials to the team at our dental lab so they can craft your 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 to the correct position.
Why Our Houston Cosmetic Dentist Recommends Invisalign To Our Adult Patients
Here are the different reasons why we are proud to offer Invisalign to patients.
Invisalign Is Barely Noticeable
As its name suggests, Invisalign is nearly invisible due to the fact that it doesn’t utilize any wires, brackets, or o-rings. This makes it highly attractive to adults who would prefer to avoid drawing attention to their smiles.
Invisalign Gives Patients More Freedom
Unlike our metal dental braces, Invisalign Clear Aligners can be removed by the patient–and they should be at mealtimes; just be sure not to lose or misplace your trays. However, for Invisalign treatment to work, your trays must be worn at least 22 hours a day. If you do this and keep up good dental hygiene, then you may be able to skip the aligner trays on a special occasion.
Invisalign Is Highly Effective
Though once dismissed as being too weak compared to metal braces to make any change in the alignment of the teeth, Invisalign Clear Aligners have proven to be effective at correcting the bite, especially if your bite isn’t a severe one.
