Invisalign for Carrollton & Lewisville
Clear, Removable, Comfortable Braces
Do you wish that there was a more comfortable and discreet alternative to traditional braces? Perhaps you have opted out of receiving orthodontic treatment for fear of uncomfortable and noticeable metal and wire oral appliances. Fortunately, there is a solution to traditional braces that is comfortable and inconspicuous. Our dentist proudly offers Invisalign – an effective teeth-straightening method that offers numerous advantages to patients seeking an alternative to traditional orthodontic treatment.
What is Invisalign?
Sometimes called “invisible braces”, Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic system that corrects common problems such as gapped, crooked, or overlapped teeth. Instead of fixed metal appliances that slowly move teeth, Invisalign relies on applying gentle force using clear aligners, a retainer-like oral appliance that is clear and removable. Aligners are custom made to fit a patient’s mouth and each set is worn for approximately two weeks. Every two weeks, patients will receive a new set of aligners that is tighter than the last. Over time, teeth will slowly shift to healthier, straighter positions.
This method for straightening teeth was specifically developed as an alternative to metal and wire braces. Invisalign has helped millions of people enjoy straighter and healthier smiles in a convenient and discreet manner.
What are the Benefits of Invisible Braces?
There are obvious advantages to wearing clear braces. The most notable is their discreet appearance. Since aligners are made from clear, soft plastic, they are virtually undetectable to those around you. This will allow you to smile with confidence while eliminating fears of others seeing conspicuous orthodontic appliances. Invisalign is also removable, this means that you will take out your aligners for meals as well as when you need to brush and floss your teeth. Many patients feel that this orthodontic system is noticeably more comfortable – this is likely because there are no metal wires and brackets that can scrape and cut soft oral tissues.
