With Invisalign you will not have to worry about anyone seeing the wires or brackets when you smile. This is because the trays are clear.
With most people, especially adults feeling uncomfortable with having a metal filled smile, you no longer have to go through this inconvenience with orthodontic treatment. Invisalign offers a comfortable, removable and virtually invisible teeth aligner solution. Unlike traditional metal braces that are adhesively bonded to your teeth, Invisalign aligners can be removed to eat, drink, floss and brush your teeth at your own convenience. The clear aligners can go unnoticed in your mouth, providing you with the confidence to show that beautiful, white, metal-free smile during your treatment process. The thin and lightweight Invisalign aligners allow your teeth to gradually shift over a certain treatment course to reach a perfectly straight position.
A customized Invisalign treatment plan is developed for each patient individually to achieve the best results depending on their bite and teeth alignment. Each set of aligners is worn for about 2 to 3 weeks, where it exerts a gentle force onto your teeth, shifting them little by little towards the right alignment. The new set of aligner continues the shifting of your teeth from where the previous aligner left off. By the end of your treatment period, the series of aligners will have moved your teeth into their new, beautiful and straight position. You will walk out of our Canyon Lakes dentistry in Katy clinic with a perfect set of teeth.
How long does Invisalign take?
Treatment time varies depending on the complexity of each individual case and can take anything from 4 to 24 weeks. After a thorough consultation we will confirm your suitability and explain the steps involved -and you will be given a more accurate idea of how long your treatment will take. At your consultation, you will also have the opportunity to discuss any questions or concerns you may have.
Does it hurt?
Any time the teeth are pushed or moved into a different position, there is a chance of experiencing some discomfort. This is actually a good sign as it’s an indication that the treatment is working! Most patients only report discomfort for the first few days after wearing a new set of aligners and some report no discomfort at all. When present, this can be described as more of a pressure-type pain than a sharp or intense pain, and typically resolves after the first few days.
How much does Invisalign cost?
nvisalign is comparable to the cost of traditional braces. The price also depends on how complex your case is. If you’re at all concerned about whether or not you can afford Invisalign treatment, please let us know.
