With Invisalign You’ll Get a Straighter Smile In Months, Not YearsDr. Memmott on Invisalign Read Transcript
Invisalign is a great opportunity for patients to correct the little things in their smile that, perhaps always bothered them. They thought it would be a big deal and they know that they're not going to like wearing full braces. They're not going to like the appearance, they don't want to be in braces for a couple of years. Nowadays with Invisalign, you can correct those little issues in your smile, the crowding, the little things. It's actually perfect for patients who have had braces when they were younger and then stopped wearing the retainer and then they have one or two teeth that always want to go back to the position that they were in. For years people will let it go and are bothered by those one or two teeth that are just out of position and made that once perfect smile now look a little bit different. It's a great opportunity for them to have something that doesn't have to show everyone else that they're going through braces again, but it's an opportunity for them to correct those teeth, get their teeth straight again without having to announce to everyone that you had stopped wearing your retainer at one point. Even for patients who haven't had braces, that they feel like they don't want to go through the embarrassment or just the social aspect of wearing braces. You can get Invisalign at any age. It's a treatment that we love because it's so gentle on the teeth. Invisalign is a way that people can, over time, correct those teeth, rotate teeth and be able to do it and be in control of their own outcomes.
You can’t believe your teen is giving you such a hard time about having to get braces. You wish your parents had been able to correct your teeth when you were that age. Now you’re struggling with the idea of having metal brackets and wires in your mouth at your age.
Your Spring, TX dentist can help, with Invisalign orthodontics. With Invisalign, you and your teen can get the straight smiles you value without any metal at all.
To schedule a consultation with our dentist, call Texas Dental Group at 832-791-1706.
Make Teeth Straightening More Convenient with Invisalign
Unlike traditional metal braces that are bonded to your teeth, Invisalign uses a series of clear, plastic trays to shift your teeth into alignment. You’ll remove your tray at mealtimes, for brushing and flossing your teeth, and at any other time it would inconvenience you to have them in.
It works on your schedule. But, of course, the more time you spend with the trays in, the faster your teeth will move where they need to be to make you happy with your smile.
Get a Customized Treatment Plan With Invisalign
Our office partners with Invisalign to custom-fit each set of trays for your mouth and your particular needs. The clear plastic trays apply mild pressure to push your teeth into position.
You switch out trays every two weeks, and each tray is shaped a little differently to help you reach your perfect smile. You’ll check in with us periodically at our Spring, TX dentist office so we can ensure your treatment is progressing as planned.
Invisalign Straightens Teeth in Less Time Than Braces
On average, you’ll only need Invisalign for a year to get the straight teeth you’ve dreamt about since high school. Your teen’s mouth is still developing, so we’ll have to meet for a consultation before we can give you an idea of how long their treatment will take.
If you had braces when you were younger and your teeth are no longer as straight as they once were, you’d likely need to wear Invisalign for only a few months to get your smile back in order. Many of our patients have had success with Invisalign as a short-term orthodontics solution.
Call 832-791-1706 to see if you’re a candidate. If you or your teen are not good candidates for Invisalign, we’re happy to refer you to the orthodontist next door, who is skilled in treating more severe cases of misalignment. Either way, don’t let the years keep slipping by without setting your teeth straight.
