Do you have a desire for straighter teeth, but are turned off by the idea of metal braces? Several of the patients that come to us have no desire to have metal braces. We fully understand! Moreover, we feature Invisalign® as a viable solution for most dental patients. Before selecting Invisalign® as your ‘go-to’ treatment, it is essential to understand two points, namely:
- What Invisalign® is, and
- How Invisalign® works
A Brief Look Into Invisalign®
Invisalign® is a dental method which uses a series of transparent aligners to straighten your teeth over time. The aligners are composed of a thermoplastic (for full disclosure of the ingredients of the Invisalign® check the official MSDS). Some of the primary benefits of Invisalign® include:
- A nearly invisible appearance on the wearer
- Ease of hygiene since the aligners are fully removable
- Significantly less irritation than traditional braces which tend to chaff soft tissues within the mouth
- Ability to combine treatment with conventional braces under certain circumstances
Whenever you come into our Mansfield or Arlington location desiring Invisalign®, we’ll allow you to see aligners up close. We want you to get a personal feel for the Invisalign® experience before you commit. As you do, we’ll explain how they work.
Understanding the Method Behind Invisalign®
Invisalign® aligners are designed for two-week usage. Every two weeks, the aligners gradually shift your teeth into a healthier position. Before any treatment takes place, we will take a digital scan of your teeth to create a three-dimensional virtual plan for your treatment. The digital scan will provide a map of how the aligners will straighten your teeth. With that information, a series of customized Invisalign® trays can be constructed to correct your smile.
One aspect of our dentistry that sets us apart from other Invisalign® providers is our comprehensive consultations. We want you to have full knowledge of the procedure. Hence, we set aside time to answer any questions or apprehensions you may have in mind. Our financial team has a variety of options to make Invisalign® affordable.
