If you’re a working professional, you may want to obtain an even smile, but worry about the impact of metal braces on your appearance. Which is why we have a clear and barely noticeable option, one that can even be removed before meals. In today’s blog, your Fort Worth, TX, orthodontist talks about the Invisalign® system.
The Invisalign® System
Invisalign® is unique in that it doesn’t require metal brackets or wires at all, and is instead a series of clear plastic aligners. Each one is custom-made for your smile, and is worn daily. A set is usually worn for about two weeks, 20 to 23 hours a day. You then upgrade to the next set in the series and the process continues. The total treatment time varies, but adults usually see optimal results in a year, while teens may need up to 18 months. The exact time depends on the extent of your misalignment and whether you wear the aligners as we prescribe!
Helping Professionals Correct Their Smiles
This means you can wear orthodontics that are nearly invisible, and don’t alter your appearance. They’re comfortable, and can even be removed before meals! No need to alter your diet or change how you eat. The removable nature also means you take them out for big meetings or events (just be sure you still meet your 20 to 22 hours minimum). Being removable also means an easier time brushing and flossing, so you’re less likely to develop teeth stains, cavities, or periodontal issues during treatment. They’re easy to wear, clean, and store, and work with your professional work life!
To get started, contact our team to schedule a consultation. We will examine your smile with advanced digital imaging to see if this is the best route for your smile. If so, we will take detailed digital images to design and craft your aligners. If not, we could use ceramic brackets to make metal braces far less removable. If you contact us soon, we can examine your and start the process before the hectic holiday season arrives and your schedule becomes packed. You can also put your remaining 2022 dental insurance benefits and health savings funds to use before they expire at the end of the year. Let’s start your journey to an even smile today!
