The Invisalign® system is an orthodontic treatment that helps correct the position of your teeth, offering teens and adults straighter smiles in as little as one year! In today’s blog, your Fort Worth, TX, orthodontist will look at three major benefits of using Invisalign ® to correct your smile, and how to get started.
This is a major benefit for both our teen and adult patients, as they often worry about how wearing orthodontics could impact their appearance during the treatment period. The Invisalign® aligners are actually nearly invisible, since we craft them from clear plastic material. As a result, few people can tell you’re wearing orthodontics as your smile is gradually and gently corrected.
Each set you wear is custom-made for your smile. We take a series of detailed digital images, which lets us create a 3D impression. AT a special lab, a series of aligners will be designed and fabricated based on these measurements and images. Each set will fit comfortably and help you avoid gum and cheek irritation. A set is worn for 20 to 22 hours a day over a period of two weeks. You then upgrade to the next set in the series. This process continues for a year to 18 months, helping you obtain even smiles and stunning results comfortably!
Braces are fixed to your smile, but aligners can be removed. Which means at meal time you don’t have to worry about food becoming stuck in your orthodontics, as you remove your aligners before you eat. Being removable also means you can take them out before you brush and floss, making routine oral hygiene care much easier. As long as you wear them for the amount of time the orthodontist recommends, you can take them out before special occasions too! This makes the treatment experience much simpler and more convenient.
If you have any questions about how these clear and cozy aligners could benefit your smile, or if you would like to schedule a consultation to see if they’re right for you, then contact our team today. We would love to start the process of correcting your uneven smiles, improving both the health and beauty of your smile!
