Invisalign Clear Braces
If you would like a straight, perfectly aligned smile but the idea of brackets and wires sends you running from the dental office, we can help. At Grapevine Dental, we offer an alternative form of orthodontic treatment for our teen and adult patients with Invisalign clear braces.
A properly aligned smile is not only more attractive, but also healthier. It can be difficult to clean overcrowded or overlapping teeth. If you need a filling or crown, restoring properly aligned teeth is more effective and more attractive.
Braces You Can Keep a Secret
If you are a professional, have an active social life, or had braces as a kid, you might not want to sign up for years of orthodontic treatment that the world can see. Invisalign clear braces are made of crystal clear, BPA-free plastic. You can wear them discreetly and speak confidently during use.
Invisalign clear braces treat most orthodontic conditions, including misalignment, gaps between your teeth, overlapping or overcrowded teeth, and even protruding teeth. In some complex cases, traditional orthodontics may provide a better solution for you. We can go over your treatment options during your exam.
If you would like, we can combine Invisalign with other cosmetic dentistry treatments, helping you achieve your dream smile.
Invisalign Moves Teeth Gradually, Conveniently, and Comfortably
Once you decide to move forward with treatment, we will take impressions, x-rays, and photographs to plan your treatment. When your Invisalign trays arrive, you will wear each set for approximately two weeks and then trade them in for the next in the series. You should use your aligner trays most of the time – at least 22 hours per day. You can take them out to eat, drink hot beverages, and clean your teeth.
Aside from those times, you should wear them consistently, which is easy because they are smooth and comfortable. Invisalign trays will not irritate the delicate tissue inside your cheeks like traditional brackets. Since you can remove them to brush and floss, you won’t need any special tools to clean your teeth.
Regular follow-up appointments with Dr. Michael Colangelo will verify that your treatment is on track. He will adjust your treatment, as necessary, to make sure that you have outstanding results.
Caring for Your New Smile
Your smile will relapse without proper follow-up treatment. You will need to wear a retainer to keep your new, ideal alignment. Your commitment to this part of your treatment will protect your time and investment.
If you ever lose or damage your retainer, contact us right away. We offer replacement options, so that your new smile lasts a lifetime.
