When you look in the mirror, are you happy with the state of your smile? It is important to have a healthy smile, but there is nothing wrong with wanting to put your most attractive smile forward when it comes to family photographs, selfies and everyday conversations with family and friends. When adult or young adult teeth need realignment in Fort Worth, TX, our orthodontic practice might suggest Invisalign aligners as a discreet, comfortable and stress-free way to straighten teeth, without the complications of permanent attachments, cleaning around metal and wires, and coming for adjustment appointments on a frequent basis.
How Technology Helps Keep it Simple
After we meet with you in consultation, we can advise on Invisalign, or let you know if another orthodontic procedure is more likely to return the results you want. To proceed with Invisalign, we will take careful measurements of the current position of your teeth using digital photographs that can be combined into digital images that show the full structure of your smile, from visible tooth crowns to roots. These digital files are then used to create a set of clear plastic aligners, along with a customized schedule for wearing them.
Keeping Teeth Clean with Invisalign is A Breeze
Since the clear trays can be removed at mealtimes and for brushing, there are no wires to catch food or pop out of place. It is recommended to wear the aligners about 22 hours a day, which leaves plenty of time for the dedicated home care routines you already have in place.
Care After Invisalign
Once your teeth have been shifted into their new positions, no further orthodontic treatment is needed. You should maintain brushing and flossing routines and see your family dentist for regular checkups and cleanings. We are always here if you experience an orthodontic emergency, and our dental team considers all our patients as bonus members of our smile team.
