Getting Started With Invisalign

Cleveland, TX, dentist offers invisalign

Are your teeth not as straight as you would like them to be? If this is the case, you may be considering different options for orthodontic care. Adult patients looking to align their smiles may be able to use Invisalign instead of traditional braces. Your Cleveland, TX, family dentistry offers this discreet treatment option which can help correct crooked teeth without brackets or wires.

Are You A Good Candidate For This Method?

Invisalign is a discreet alternative to traditional braces. Instead of using metal brackets and wires to slowly adjust your teeth into proper placement, clear trays will be created. This service is typically reserved for older teenager or adult patients who have moderate alignment problems. Unlike braces, you will be mainly responsible for wearing your trays. You will need to wear them for the majority of the day, only taking them out when eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth. This means that you will even wear them when sleeping. Before starting this treatment, your dentist will examine your smile to evaluate if this is a good method for you. If you have more severe overcrowding or gapping problems, they may recommend a more traditional orthodontic service.

Choosing Invisalign For Discretion And Comfort

There are many reasons why you may want to go through this method instead of braces. First, this option allows you to straighten your smile without others noticing. While braces are an effective option, the brackets and bands used for them are highly visible. Many patients, especially adults seeking care, may not want to do this because it can disrupt their smile or make them feel much younger. Another reason people may choose this alternative is because it may be more comfortable. Unfortunately, the wires and brackets used in orthodontics can cause discomfort by scraping your gums. You will also need to have them adjusted every few weeks, which can cause discomfort. Certain foods, like popcorn or other crunchy snacks, will need to be avoided during your treatment to avoid snapping a wire. With Invisalign, you can continue eating your favorite foods without worry. You will simply remove your trays when it is time to eat and then put them back when you are done.

Pairing This With Other Cosmetic Treatments

For a full smile transformation, you can pair this alignment treatment with professional teeth whitening. By the end of your treatment, you can have an even-appearing and stain-free smile. Professional teeth whitening can be done at home or in our office, depending on your preference. Your dentist will need to examine your smile before having this cosmetic enhancement done.
