Should You Try Invisalign®?

considering invisalignDo you want a more attractive smile, one free of dental misalignment? Many people do, but they are concerned about how metal braces will impact their appearance during treatment. But what if your Fort Worth, TX, orthodontist had an option that was practically invisible? In today’s blog, we’re going to look at the Invisalign® system.

Who Makes a Good Candidate?

With clear aligners, we can address minor and more severe cases of misalignment. To see if this is right for you, we will carefully examine your smile with advanced digital technology. We then assess the cause and severity of your misalignment, so we can make a decision on the best option to correct crooked, crowded, or overlapping teeth. If you’re a candidate, then we will take detailed digital impressions with the iTero® digital scanning system, which enables us to create clear images and take measurements of your smile with accuracy and precision, crafting a series of aligners especially for your smile.

How Does Treatment Work?

You will start wearing a set of clear aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day. After about two weeks, you will move on to the next in the series. Over the course of about a year for adults, or about 18 months for teens, this could shift the teeth into optimal positions, correcting nmisaigment and also improving overall oral health. The aligners will fit comfortably, and help you avoid the gum and cheek irritation that often impacts people wearing braces.

Can I Take Out My Aligners?

Yes! As long as you wear them for the amount of time your orthodontist recommends, you can remove them before meals and special occasions. Being removable means you don’t have to avoid certain foods or drinks. You can also take them out before brushing and flossing too, which means a much easier time caring for your smile, as you don’t have to work around orthodontics. You can also take them out for graduations, dates, or special occasions. Remember, to see optimal result’s in the timeframe specified by the orthodontist, you should wear them for the amount of time recommended.
