Invisalign Clear Braces
In today’s world, having an even, symmetrical smile isn’t a luxury. More than ever, our faces and smiles are front and center in Zoom calls with friends, family, and business colleagues.
Crooked or crowded teeth detract from your appearance and lead to other oral health concerns. Invisalign clear braces offered at our Needville dental office restore balance and harmony to your smile and help minimize your risk for cavities and gum disease.
A Straight Smile without Metal Braces
Most adults who want to straighten their teeth don’t want to wear metal braces. With Invisalign, you don’t have to; the crystal-clear aligners are virtually invisible when worn on your teeth, and they are removable so you can continue to enjoy all your favorite foods throughout treatment.
If you have a big event coming up or are planning a night out with friends, you have the freedom to remove your Invisalign aligners for a few hours. Just remember that the key to fast results is wearing your aligners all the time, except for meals and oral hygiene.
Leaving them out for longer periods will only slow your progress, and we know you want to finish treatment and see your new smile as soon as possible!
Invisalign for a Straighter, Healthier Smile
Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign offers numerous oral health benefits that make them much more than an aesthetic solution. Keeping straight teeth clean is easier than trying to brush between crowded teeth. Since tooth misalignment affects your dental bite, it commonly leads to teeth grinding, excessive tooth wear, and TMJ pain.
Getting Started with Invisalign Clear Braces
Now that you understand the aesthetic and health benefits of straight teeth, let’s look at how the Invisalign process works.
The first step is an Invisalign evaluation with Dr. Kunkel or Dr. Davis at our Needville, TX dental office for photos, x-rays, and intraoral photos of your teeth. If our dentists determine you’re a good Invisalign candidate, they will take start by taking digital impressions of your teeth and using specialized software to plan your treatment.
An Invisalign lab uses our precise specifications to fabricate several sets of clear, custom aligners designed for your specific orthodontic needs. We will give you your aligners and recommend you wear each set for 22 hours a day for 2-3 weeks, then switch to the next set. When you do, you’ll start to notice small improvements in the position of your teeth.
You will continue to wear and switch your aligners this way and visit us every 4-6 weeks to give you your next sets of aligners and check on your progress. Treatment is complete when you have worn all the sets of aligners, and your teeth are in the desired position.
