You want straight teeth, right? If you’ve been spending years hiding a gap between your front teeth, crooked and crowded bottom teeth, or any other visible imperfection in your smile you’ve probably spent time in the mirror dreaming of a change.
But that change means having to get braces, right? Who has time to get a mouth full of metal that lasts years when you’re an adult with a job, responsibilities, a social life, and important meetings? Definitely not you, and at Precise Dental Of Houston we completely understand! That’s why we’re thrilled to offer Invisalign!
What Is Invisalign?
Think of traditional braces: metal brackets, wires, discomfort, and embarrassment. With Invisalign you get straight teeth without any of those concerns! Imagine getting a straight smile in less time than it takes to go through a braces treatment and all without anyone knowing you’re doing it: that’s the Invisalign advantage!
Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners that slowly move your teeth into the place you want them to be! The forces that are used in Invisalign treatment are comfortable, minor, and easy to live with – some patients don’t even report feeling a thing!
You wear your Invisalign aligners for 22 hours out of the day. You take them out to eat and brush your teeth – your daily routine won’t really change at all! And there’s no gross food chunks stuck in wires and brackets, no cleaning hassle, and no need for anyone to ever know!
Going through an Invisalign treatment sequence is easy – you’ll just trade out your aligner for a new one every two weeks! Each aligner moves your teeth just a little bit more, and before you know it you’ll have the smile you’ve always dreamed of!
What Makes Invisalign Faster?
It’s true – Invisalign is faster than normal braces. That might surprise you until you realize why! Traditional orthodontic treatments are done in two stages: first the crowns of your teeth are repositioned and then more force is used to ensure the roots are positioned properly as well. The reason that braces go through two stages is to correct your bite: it’s a complete mouth system.
Invisalign isn’t designed for patients who need complete bite adjustments or serious changes to their teeth. It’s for patients like you who have cosmetic problems that they want to fix! By focusing purely on correcting the look of your smile Invisalign can shorten treatment time drastically – some minor cases can be complete in just six months! At the outside Invisalign rarely takes longer than a year!
The Invisalign Process
It all starts with a trip to our Houston dentist office. We’ll do a full exam of your mouth to be sure that you’re a good candidate for Invisalign. We don’t want to start treatment if you have other oral health concerns that need addressing first!
Once we’re sure you’re a good candidate we’ll discuss your treatment options, your hopes, and your desired outcome. All of these things combine to create a successful treatment that results in a smile you really love!
We’ll take impressions of your mouth that will be used to build your Invisalign trays. The impression is sent to the Invisalign lab where they model your treatment to create the perfect sequence of trays. Once we get them back you’ll come in for a first fitting and be on your way to the perfect smile!
We’ll see you at Precise Dental Of Houston every couple of months to be sure your treatment is going well. We want to be sure you’re on schedule and there aren’t any unforeseen complications or concerns that we need to address!
