Straight Teeth Without the Braces

You no longer need the embarrassment or hassle of traditional metal braces to have straight teeth. Orthodontic options have advanced, so you now have the option of Invisalign clear aligners to improve your smile, bite and confidence. This option is translucent and blends in with your natural teeth, so the aligners are not easily noticed as you wear them. They allow you to get the straightened teeth you’re looking for without the awkward in-between process of braces.

Why Would You Choose Invisalign Aligners?

Invisalign clear aligners offer many benefits, especially when compared to the traditional method of metal braces. These clear aligners give you a convenient option of straightening your teeth that’s easy to fit into your life. Because these aligners are removable, you can easily eat what you want and take care of your teeth like normal. You don’t have to worry about braces getting in the way of normal activities.

With aligners, you don’t have to deal with hassles or dangers of braces, such as injuring your lip on them and having your brackets or wires breaking. You’ll get to skip all of that and wear easy-to-remove clear aligners instead. These aligners are thin and comfortable to make your life easier.

Since these aligners are transparent, people will just see your natural teeth rather than your straighteners. Nonetheless, you can always take them out when you need to, such as when you’re eating out or going to a fancy event. Then, simply clean your teeth and put them back in.

Also, Invisalign clear aligners tend to work much faster than braces. They can adjust the teeth in a matter of months, while braces often take years of discomfort and awkwardness. Invisalign aligners slowly, gently adjust your teeth to provide you with a look that makes you want to smile.

Is Invisalign for Everyone?

Invisalign clear aligners help people with mild to moderate orthodontic problems, while you may need braces if you have a moderate to severe problem. Nonetheless, there are many orthodontic and cosmetic concerns that Invisalign can solve. Their many benefits include:

  • Straightening teeth that are out of place
  • Correcting the placement of crowded teeth
  • Closing the space between a front tooth gap

Invisalign can be customized to the particular goal you have for it. Talk to our dentist about your preferences and concerns, and we can let you know whether Invisalign will work for you. We can also give you an idea of your expected results.

The Invisalign Process

If you’re interested in Invisalign, start with a dental consultation. At our San Antonio office, we provide an examination to determine whether Invisalign can work for you. We can discuss options with you, and if you decide to move forward with Invisalign, we will perform a digital scan to get a map of your mouth. This process is much faster and easier than the mouth mold technique traditionally used with braces.

With the help of a 3D digital scan, we can create a custom treatment plan to fit your goals for your new smile. We will provide you with a preview, so you’ll know what the final results will look like before they happen.

Next, you’ll give some time for your aligners to be custom made to fit your unique mouth and trimmed to fit your gum line. The finished product will perfectly match your mouth. You come back to our office to retrieve your first set of completed aligners. During this visit, we will make sure your customized aligners fit your mouth perfectly. We’ll also take the time to talk about the aligner process and answer any questions you may have.

You’ll wear this first set of aligners for up to two weeks, for 20 to 22 hours per day for maximum results. You’ll come back in to our office about every six to eight weeks for your next set of aligners, and you’ll wear each one for up to two weeks. Your teeth will slowly move into a new placement, as each set of aligners furthers your progress.
