If you have uneven smiles, you could be interested in finally addressing this in 2022. If so, you don’t necessarily have to undergo care with braces. Instead, your Fort Worth, TX, orthodontist could provide treatment with a series of clear oral appliances, known as the Invisalign system.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign never requires metal brackets or wires to address misalignment. Instead, we use clear aligners that are practically invisible when worn, and that fit comfortably as well. These are not only barely noticeable, but also removable. You can take them out before you eat so you don’t have to avoid certain foods. In addition, you can remove them prior to brushing and flossing your teeth, making daily care much easier than if you had to work around brackets and wires. Treatment time is also shorter, and requires fewer visits to our office as well!
Your Treatment Process
Once we assess the extent of your misalignment and decide Invisalign is right for you, we will take detailed digital images with the iTero system. These images will help us design and craft your aligners. Each one is custom-fitted for your smile. You will wear a set for 20-22 hours a day, for about two weeks on average. You then upgrade to the next in the series, and continue this process for about a year to 18 months. This option helps both teen and adult patients, and can address minor and more severe cases of misalignment. Correcting misalignment not only helps you enjoy a more attractive and even smile, but also helps prevent complications related to misalignment, such as tooth decay, bruxism, TMJ disorder, and gum disease.
Starting Your Treatment
How do you get started? Well, give us a call to schedule your next visit with our team. We will talk to you about your hopes for your smile, and take detailed digital images and x-rays to understand the causes of your misalignment, and to assess overall severity. If you have a case too severe for Invisalign, don’t worry, we have another cosmetic option! If you need braces, we will use ceramic to create tooth-colored brackets, which blend with the teeth. We then connect a wire to them with clear bands. Whether you need braces or aligners, we have a cosmetic option to help you feel confident during your treatment. If you have any questions, then let us know today!
