If you want a straighter smile without lengthy time in metal braces, consider Invisalign® from Dentistry of Highland Village. We are a Certified Invisalign® Provider for both teens and adults. With this revolutionary orthodontic treatment method, patients can avoid the inconvenience, embarrassment and discomfort from metal brackets and wires. If you have teeth that are crowded, gapped or crooked, it is not too late to achieve a straighter, more confident smile. Invisalign® clear aligner therapy is just one way that we give our Houston patients the most convenient and effective care available. A brief consultation can determine if Invisalign® is right for you.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is a wire-free treatment that uses a series of clear aligners to gently move your teeth into ideal position. Invisalign® aligners are unnoticeable to others and can be easily removed for eating and brushing. To ensure a comfortable fit, each aligner is custom made using advanced 3D computer imaging technology. Invisalign® is among the most preferred smile corrective solutions available for both teens and adults.
What are the benefits?
Invisalign® offers several notable benefits over traditional metal braces:
Discreet: Invisalign® is virtually invisible to others. This allows adults and teens to remain confident in their workplace, school or social settings while undergoing orthodontic treatment.
Convenient: Invisalign® requires much less maintenance than traditional braces. The aligners are removable for brushing and flossing, which significantly improves your dental health during and after orthodontics.
Efficient: Many Invisalign® patients benefit from fewer and shorter appointments in our office. There is no need to tighten wires or make adjustments. Total treatment time may also be less than traditional braces.
Comfortable: Invisalign® aligners are smooth and comfortable plastic. This prevents painful irritation to the gums, cheeks and lips that metal braces often causes.
How does Invisalign® work?
During your Invisalign® therapy, you can expect to wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before new aligner trays are given. Each series of aligners works to gradually move your teeth into their final position. We typically see patients every six weeks to monitor their progress. Total treatment time is determined on a case-by-case basis, but the average Invisalign® treatment is usually complete within 9 to 15 months. Invisalign® treatment allows patients to view their own virtual treatment plan at the beginning, so you will be able to see how drastically Invisalign® can improve your smile.
