What is Invisalign?
Invisalign utilizes customized clear aligners that gradually shift teeth alignment into the desired position. Throughout the course of treatment, patients receive a new set of aligners every two weeks to accommodate their changing smile. The aligners are near-invisible and allow for the correction of minor to modern orthodontic imperfections, such as spaces between teeth or crooked teeth. Invisalign is particularly popular among Smile32’s adult patients, who find these clear braces as effective as traditional braces.
Why Should You Consider Invisalign?
This clear braces option provides patients a number of benefits, including:
- Comfort – Unlike traditional metal braces, which have brackets and wires that can press against the lips and cheeks, Invisalign clear aligners are made from a thermoplastic that is fabricated to fit your smile comfortably.
- Convenience – As Invisalign clear aligners are removable, you can take them out entirely for important dates and events, if preferred. However, it’s important to wear the aligners 22 hours a day to get the most out of treatment.
- Appearance – Patients looking for a low-profile orthodontic treatment find that Invisalign clear trays straighten their smiles without affecting their appearances.
- Easy Maintenance – Practicing good oral hygiene with Invisalign is simple -- all you need to do is remove the trays before brushing and flossing your teeth. It’s important to also remove the clear braces before you eat and drink. Aside from cleaning your trays daily, there are additional steps to maintain your oral health while using Invisalign.
Invisalign Treatment in Houston
Receiving Invisalign is a simple process. During your initial consultation with our Houston dentist, Dr. Vakil, we take 3D images of your smile and jaw structure, as well as special digital impressions (no oral putty needed), to help determine that Invisalign is the best treatment method for you. These images and impressions also aid in the creation of the treatment plan and predicting the length of your treatment; most patients receive an average of 20 to 29 set of trays per arch. You receive a new set of aligners every two weeks.
Once your aligners have been created, you are invited back to Smile 32 to receive a final fitting to ensure the trays fit correctly. Dr. Vakil will go over the details about treatment, how to clean the aligners, and answer any questions you may have about Invisalign.
