Get clear braces at Park Dental Clinic in Lewisville, TX
If your teeth are crowded, not only does it affect your appearance, but also your teeth are prone to gum disease as well as caries because it's much harder to keep your teeth clean compared to straight well-aligned teeth. Even though you want to straighten your teeth, sometimes it's not an easy decision because of social interaction or business relation if you have to wear traditional braces. Invisalign® is a superior cosmetic orthodontic option for you!
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is indicated to correct the alignment, appearance, bite and functionality of teeth.
Invisalign® uses a series of custom clear trays to progressively move the teeth into alignment. The trays are made of a smooth, comfortable plastic which you wear over your teeth. There are no metal brackets or wires involved. You just pop in a new set of aligners every two weeks, until your treatment is complete and you achieve the smile you have always wanted.
How does Invisalign® work?
Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for only you. The trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place. In a case of traditional braces, one might end up with shortened roots because it's put too much pressure to move your teeth.
Invisalign® does not use metal brackets and there are no wires to tighten. Discomfort is less with Invisalign® compared to traditional braces when wires are tightened each time. You just pop in a new set of aligners every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. Best of all most people will never realize you’re straightening your teeth.
Why should I consider Invisalign® instead of braces to straighten my teeth?
Dental braces have long been used as a way of straightening the alignment of the teeth with the use of metal brackets and wires in order to pressure the teeth into the right shape and contour.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® trays easily removable by the patient which allows for easier cleaning and the removal of stuck on food which will prevent tooth decay.
Additionally, Invisalign® uses clear plastic and looks natural throughout the entire straightening process without using wires and brackets. While barely noticeable by others you can be comfortable knowing that if a big event comes up, which you’d prefer not to wear braces, you can easily remove you Invisalign® tray for the evening or day.
Also, Invisalign treatment is often more accommodating to busy schedules with less frequent dental visits.
