If you or your child need braces but want something more discreet than traditional metal braces, Invisalign offers an exciting alternative.
Invisalign is an exciting alternative to more traditional orthodontic treatments like metal braces. Instead of brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. The aligners fit directly onto the dental arches, are almost invisible when worn, and are completely removable. Patients remove the aligners to eat, drink, and perform oral hygiene – making it a highly convenient form of orthodontic treatment.
More and more dentists are offering Invisalign treatment to their patients – and while this may seem like a good option, it comes with risks. Only trained, certified orthodontists like those at our practice are specialized and qualified to use Invisalign to treat orthodontic problems. Orthodontics is an incredibly complicated science, and orthodontists go through 2 to 3 years of additional schooling to learn the techniques and technologies necessary to safely straighten teeth. At our practice, we're proud to have a variety of specialized Austin orthodontists to help our patients.
Every patient is unique, and no two Invisalign treatments will be the same. Ultimately, only a consultation with one of our orthodontists can tell you how long treatment will take. That said, most patients receive Invisalign treatment for somewhere between 6 and 18 months. It's important to remember that Invisalign isn't right for everyone, and some patients will still need treatment with braces – but Invisalign can offer a convenient option for kids and adults alike.
Invisalign is Made to Fit Your Lifestyle!
Due to its unique design, Invisalign offers a number of unique benefits to patients. Some of the main benefits of Invisalign include:
Invisalign won't show up in pictures or at important social events.
You can take the aligners out to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
No Dietary Restrictions
Because you remove the aligners to eat, you won't have to avoid any foods.
Oral Hygiene is Easy
Brushing and flossing is as easy as ever – you'll never have to worry about special tools like floss threaders.
Invisalign is smooth to the touch, so it won't cause tiny cuts and scratches like braces.
