Invisalign(TM)

Lewisville, TX PEDIATRIC DENTIST

Invisalign(TM) is a modern technique to straighten teeth without the hassle of traditional metal wires. Invisalign(TM) is a clear, removable device that you wear over your teeth for about 20 hours a day. This device ultimately makes its more convenient for you to eat, brush and floss. It is also comfortable and easy to wear. Invisalign(TM) is visually more appealing and will give you the confidence to straighten your teeth without the metal look.

The process of getting Invisalign(TM) is easy and convenient. It first begins with a consultation with your dentist. Once he or she determines if you are a candidate for Invisalign(TM), a model of your teeth will be created on the computer to ensure a step-by-step process to getting your teeth straight. This allows you to see a visual representation of what your teeth can look like upon completion of treatment. A set of aligners is created every two weeks. Each aligner is made so that your teeth are slightly straighter than the previous trays. The amount of time and number of aligners worn differs depending on how straight you want your teeth.

Choosing Invisalign(TM) rids of most problems that traditional braces may cause. It reduces pain, discomfort and mouth sores that you may endure from the metal brackets and wires. It also decreases your chances of getting tooth decay and plaque buildup from inadequate brushing and flossing.
