Are you looking for a comfortable alternative to metal braces? Invisalign uses clear aligners to shift teeth into a straighter position. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are removable. Patients do not need to clean around brackets and wires or avoid hard or crunchy foods because they can remove their Invisalign aligners. Invisalign is a cosmetic dental treatment that can straighten teeth to create a more balanced smile for patients in Carrollton, TX.
Invisalign in Carrollton, TX
Before Invisalign treatment, we take dental impressions or scans of the teeth. We can create a three-dimensional model of the smile using these digital scans. Then, we send the impressions to a dental lab, where technicians create a series of custom clear aligners. We will fit the first pair of aligners in our office over your teeth. You will switch out each pair every few weeks to gently move the teeth into a straighter position. We will also provide you with a case for your aligners to keep them in when they are not on your teeth.
You may wear your aligners for twenty to twenty-two hours daily, only removing them to eat or drink. Wearing the aligners for this amount of time will keep you on track for completing treatment promptly. If you don’t wear your aligners for hours or days, your treatment time will lengthen.
When eating, you must remove your aligners because eating or drinking anything other than water can stain or damage the aligners. However, the removable aligners allow you to brush and floss normally and thoroughly. This enables you to minimize your risk for tooth decay and gum disease during treatment.
Once you complete the Invisalign treatment, we will provide you with a retainer. Wearing a retainer for a specified amount of time daily (often while sleeping) will maintain your new smile and prevent the teeth from shifting out of place.
