Have you been wishing you had braces when you were younger? Do you hide your teeth behind a closed mouth smile or a raised hand? A lot of the patients we see at Precise Dental Of Houston are unhappy with their dental look, which is why we provide custom Invisalign treatments to straighten their smiles without any metal!
Invisalign is ideal for the adult patient with a life that can’t be interrupted by braces. These completely invisible orthodontic aligners are able to straighten teeth discretely and effectively in less time than traditional braces: you’ll love the treatment and the results!
Why Choose Invisalign?
There are a lot of reasons that make Invisalign an obvious alternative to braces: invisibility, shorter treatment time, affordability … the list goes on! But there are also some reasons that you may not have thought of that make Invisalign great!
Maintain Your Day-To-Day-Life
Wearing braces is a life-changing experience, and not for the better most days. You can’t eat the same foods you used to, brushing your teeth is a challenge, and food gets stuck in places you never knew it could.
Invisalign is a great way to straighten teeth without any change to your daily life. The plastic aligners you wear need to be in your mouth for 22 hours a day to be most effective. By setting aside two hours for eating and oral hygiene it’s almost like you aren’t undergoing orthodontic treatment at all! You get all the benefits of braces from Invisalign without any of the hassle that usually comes with it.
You’ll be able to maintain great oral health during your treatment, which can be hard with traditional braces. The chances of getting cavities actually increases in patients wearing traditional braces because it’s so hard to keep them clean. This isn’t a problem with Invisalign!
The Side Benefits: Weight Loss
We want to be clear: our Houston dentist office doesn’t prescribe Invisalign for weight loss. But we’ve seen and heard about the unintended effects that Invisalign has on patients, which can be great if you’ve been wanting to shed a few pounds!
Because we advise minimal removal of your Invisalign aligners this changes the eating habits of many patients. Meals are easy because you take your aligners out, but snacking can be difficult because you shouldn’t eat with them in. Most patients end up not snacking during the day nearly as much as they used to, reducing their calorie intake for the day.
For many patients this change can have other consequences as well. Dropping some weight can inspire more physical activity, getting in shape, and leading a healthier lifestyle to complement that beautiful new smile. These are great changes to make in your life!
Reliable, Predictable Results
When we design your Invisalign treatment we design it from the ground up based on the initial impression of your teeth. By modeling the final result and letting the Invisalign computer programs plan treatment we know precisely where each tooth will be and when. This level of predictability gives us a step-by-step guide to monitor your treatment for great, reliable results.
The aligners that you wear are swapped out every two weeks for one that moves your teeth just a little bit further. Because each step is carefully modeled by advanced computer software we know that your Invisalign aligners are moving your teeth exactly where they need to go.
The typical Invisalign treatment is about a year, so if you start today you could possibly have them off by Christmas 2016! We love the results we’re able to provide our Invisalign patients: the looks on their faces as treatment nears completion and they can see the beautiful new smile they have is something that’s priceless to our entire Houston dental team.
