Invisalign Clear Braces in South Austin, TX
Would you like straighter teeth but feel like your past the point where you should be wearing metal braces? Treatment with Invisalign clear braces at our Austin, TX dental office is convenient, straightforward, and designed to help you straighten your teeth without brackets and wires on your teeth.
Invisalign is perfect for older teens and adults of any age who are ready to take a step toward a straight, symmetrical smile. Whether you have always wanted braces—or had them as a kid, but your teeth have relapsed—our cosmetic dentists would be happy to explain how Invisalign can benefit you.
Convenient Invisalign Treatment
Invisalign is unlike traditional orthodontics because there are no brackets and wires attached to your teeth for years. Instead, the Invisalign process uses smooth plastic aligner trays that fit snugly over teeth like a thin mouthguard. Take a look at some of the advantages of choosing Invisalign to straighten crooked teeth:
- Comfortable, smooth plastic aligners won't irritate the inside of your mouth.
- Crystal-clear aligners blend with your smile, and most people won't notice them.
- The aligners are removable, so you're not restricted by the foods you can eat.
- You can brush and floss as you usually do because you can remove the aligners for oral hygiene.
Treatment times with Invisalign in South Austin depend on the extent of the problem our dentists need to correct but typically takes about 12 to 18 months. The key to achieving the fastest results in your case is compliance. You have the freedom to remove your aligners for meals and oral hygiene, but you must commit to wearing them for at least 22 hours a day.
What Problems Does Invisalign Fix?
Invisalign addresses most of the same alignment issues as metal braces:
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Overlapped teeth
- Rotated teeth
Using Invisalign, we can correct dental bite problems, including overbites, underbites, and crossbites.
What's the Process for Getting Invisalign?
The first step is for our dentists to perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine if you're an appropriate Invisalign candidate. If so, they plan your treatment using state-of-the-art software that shows how your teeth will move throughout treatment.
An Invisalign lab customizes your aligners according to the treatment plan established by our dentists. When we receive your aligners, you'll return to Daylight Dental, and our dentists will give you two sets to get you started. Wear the first set of Invisalign clear aligners for two to three weeks, 22 hours a day, then switch to the next set and wear them.
After you've worn both sets for two weeks each, you'll return to our South Austin dental office so our dentists can check on your progress and give you your next sets of aligners.
You'll continue wearing your aligners and switching them out every two weeks until you've used them all, and your teeth have moved into the desired position.
