San Angelo Invisalign experts
Looking for a treatment that provides the same great results as traditional braces but with more freedom and flexibility? Consider Invisalign®, a clear aligner system that can help improve your oral health and align your teeth. As your trusted San Angelo orthodontist, we're committed to creating beautiful, forever smiles for patients of all ages.
How Invisalign® works
Invisalign® treatment involves a series of removable clear aligners that gradually move your teeth into their ideal positions. During your initial consultation, our team will take x-rays and digital impressions to create a precise 3D image of your teeth. We then design your custom trays to fit firmly over your teeth, constructed using a smooth and comfortable material.
It's important to change your trays every 1-2 weeks and wear them for at least 20-22 hours every day to ensure successful treatment. Not following these guidelines or missing appointments can result in longer treatment times.
Benefits of Invisalign®
You can easily brush or floss.
Maintaining good oral hygiene is essential during any orthodontic treatment. With Invisalign, you can remove the aligners when you brush and floss, making it easier to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy.
There are no pesky wires.
Traditional braces use wires and brackets to straighten teeth, which can be uncomfortable and even painful at times. With Invisalign, there are no wires or brackets to worry about, which means you won't have to deal with any discomfort or irritation. While you will still have periodic visits to check on your progress, there are no adjustments needed, making the overall treatment process more convenient and less disruptive to your daily routine.
They're practically invisible.
One of the biggest advantages of Invisalign is that the aligners are virtually invisible. This means you can straighten your teeth without anyone even knowing you're undergoing orthodontic treatment.
You can eat or drink whatever you want.
With traditional braces, there are certain foods you have to avoid, such as hard or sticky foods that can damage the brackets or wires. However, because Invisalign aligners are removable, you can continue to enjoy all your favorite foods and drinks during treatment.
