Our North Houston dental practice offers Invisalign orthodontics, which is an alternative treatment to traditional braces. Qualifying for this clearbraces system is easy and the benefits that it offers are great.
Those who have Invisalign can expect:
Many patients, especially adults, shy away from orthodontic treatment because they think they have to wear metal braces. Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth which results in low-visibility. Most people won’t even notice that you’re wearing the trays so you can enjoy the same confidence you always had and not shy away from any situation.
- Aligners Are Comfortable
All of the components that are included with traditional metal braces can cause discomfort. Invisalign won’t scratch your tongue, cheek, or lips; and it doesn’t require rubber bands that can snap. The aligners are custom fitted to your mouth so they are smooth and not bulky.
- Oral Hygiene Is Easy
When it comes to hygiene, Invisalign surpasses traditional braces by making it a breeze to not only clean the trays but brush your teeth as well. Since the aligners are removable, people with Invisalign can do their at-home oral hygiene routine as normal. Special floss or brushes that maneuver through difficult areas aren’t needed.
- You Can Still Enjoy Your Favorite Foods
Traditional braces limit you from enjoying some of your favorite foods. For instance, you can’t chew gum, eat sticky things, or hard/crunchy snacks while wearing braces. Invisalign therapy allows you to remove the aligners before eating, so you can eat whatever your heart desires.
- You’ve Had Braces In The Past
If you’ve had braces in the past but your smile has relapsed, meaning you’ve experienced shifting of your teeth, then Invisalign is a great way to get you back on track. Our clear aligner therapy offers a quick, low-maintenance, and low-visibility solution for getting your teeth straight again.
- You Want Fast Treatment
Thanks to Invisalign’s innovative technology and material, this orthodontic treatment is 50% faster than traditional braces. The average person will wear Invisalign aligners for 12 to 18 months but results can be seen within just a few weeks of wearing the trays. Compare this to a 2-3 year waiting period of traditional braces and you’ll see why every day more and more people are choosing Invisalign.
- Fewer Appointments
Traditional orthodontics requires that you have a lot of adjustments made to your braces, meaning that you must be available for frequent visits. With Invisalign, we give you several sets of aligners and you switch them out every two weeks. When you run out of trays, you’ll come into the office for us to check your progress and send you home with more. These follow-up appointments won’t be as often as if you had braces.
