Have you always wanted straighter teeth but did not want to go through the embarrassment of living with metal braces for months on end? If so, we have good news! Thanks to a remarkable new dental technology called Invisalign®, you can enjoy the straighter smile you’ve always wanted and no one will ever know that you’re wearing a teeth-straightening appliance! We are pleased to offer this technology to our patients from throughout the Cedar Park, TX, area.
How Invisalign ® Works
The process of straightening your teeth begins when your dentist provides you with your first set of aligner trays. These see-through trays are virtually invisible, so no one will ever know you’re wearing any type of dental appliance. Although you can remove the trays yourself when you eat or brush and floss your teeth, you’ll need to wear them for at least 22 hours each day. Every few weeks, as your teeth gradually begin to shift into their new straighter positions, we’ll provide you with a new set of trays. The whole process usually takes about 12 months, although that time period may vary from patient to patient.
Benefits of Invisalign ®
Many patients report that the aligner trays are more comfortable than traditional metal braces. Because you can remove them yourself, there are no restrictions on the types of food you can eat – which is not always the case with metal braces. And since the trays are removable, it’s much easier to maintain your normal daily oral hygiene routine than it is with old-fashioned braces.
Are You a Good Candidate for Invisalign ®?
As is always the case with virtually any dental procedure or appliance, Invisalign® may not be the right choice for everyone. If you engage in any form of extreme exercise or sport, the aligner trays might be damaged. And removable trays may not always be the right choice for young patients who might be tempted to remove them and not wear them for the full 22 hours each day. Your dentist can help you to decide if Invisalign® is the right choice for you or your family member.
