Invisalign® corrects uneven teeth, but doesn’t require the use of metal brackets and wires. Instead, we help improve smile health and beauty with aligners created from a clear acrylic material. In today’s blog, we’re going to look at this treatment option and offer three reasons to consider seeing your Fort Worth, TX, orthodontist for treatment.
The one factor that seems to interest patients more than any other is the invisible nature of this option. No metal brackets or wires, no retainers with metal components, instead just a very clear set of aligners worn for between 20 and 22 hours each day. For teens and adults, this offers a way to address minor and severe cases of misalignment, without impacting their appearance day-to-day.
A Comfortable Treatment Experience
We create them based on detailed digital images we gather using the iTero® system. We take these images quickly and comfortably, then combine them to craft a 3D model of your smile. This replaces the need to take traditional impressions, so no more biting down on a mold filled with sticky material. The aligners fit snugly and comfortably, and don’t irritate the gums and cheeks the way metal orthodontics often do. People then enjoy their treatment, which often takes as little as one year for many patients. You also have fewer office visits when compared to metal braces too!
Did you know you can easily remove them? Taking them out before meals means you don’t have to worry about food becoming trapped in your orthodontics, so no need to avoid chewy foods or snacks. Taking them out before you brush and floss also makes caring for your smile easier, so you can better protect your smile from cavities, gum disease, and teeth stains during treatment. As long as you wear them as the orthodontist recommends, you may also be able to remove them for special occasions, such as a graduation, dates, or job interviews. If you have any questions about the Invisalign® system, then please contact our team today. With a consultation, we can help you decide if this is the right choice for your smile, and start you on the road toward a straighter and healthier smile!
