At the moment, our team is only providing care for orthodontic emergencies, helping to slow the spread of COVID-19. However, when we can safely open our doors again, we would love to help residents of Fort Worth, TX, and surrounding communities enjoy more even smiles. In fact, we can do so with a series of clear and comfortable aligners.
The Benefits of Invisalign®
With Invisalign®, we don’t need to use braces to help correct misalignment. Instead, we will carefully examine your smile with advanced technology to assess the cause and extent of your misalignment. If you qualify for treatment, we will then take detailed digital images of your smile and use them to create a 3D computer generated model, which allows us to design and create a series of aligners. They will fit comfortably, helping you avoid the gum and cheek irritation often encountered with other treatment options, and they can also be removed before meals so you don’t need to change your diet. Being removable means a much easier time brushing and flossing your teeth and the process requires fewer office visits and is usually shorter than the time needed for braces.
How Do They Correct Misalignment?
You will wear a set for about 20 to 22 hours each day, removing them only for meals or cleaning and soaking. After about two weeks, you will move on to the next set in the series. As you move through your aligners, your teeth are gradually and gently repositioned. We can also offer Propel® Accelerated Orthodontics, a system that stimulates the growth of bone tissue to shorten the time needed to reposition your teeth. For adults, full results usually take a year, and teens may need up to 28 months of treatment.
When to See Our Team
If you have crooked, crowded, or overlapping teeth, then as soon as the restrictions lift, we would love to see you for treatment. For now, we’re offering care for orthodontic emergencies, such as broken braces, cracked aligners, poor-fitting headgear, discomfort and soreness, or other issues related to your braces, aligner, retainers, or other orthodontic systems. If you have any questions about correcting misalignment, or if you think you have an issue that requires immediate attention from your orthodontist, then contact our team today.
