Clear Aligners - Invisalign®
Dentist Fort Worth
Most people are familiar with conventional braces, but Invisalign is fast becoming one of our most requested treatments. A popular alternative to braces, Invisalign performs the same function of straightening teeth, but does so while being practically invisible. HomeTown Dental at Belknap offers Invisalign for patients who want the best for the health of their teeth without ever sacrificing the aesthetics of their smile.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign works just like conventional braces to fix crowded and crooked teeth, but instead of metal brackets they are a clear aligner, also called a tray. While braces have to be periodically adjusted and may require the additional use of bands, Invisalign uses successive sets of trays that gradually move your teeth into the proper placement and formation. Trays are created by taking an impression of your teeth and then using a sophisticated computer program to carefully change the shape of the tray with each new set. As long as you wear them between twenty and twenty-two hours a day, only removing them for cleaning, brushing, and eating, soon enough you will have perfect teeth without ever having worn braces!
Are Invisalign or Braces Right For You?
Invisalign is not for everyone, and we will work closely with you to determine what the best fit for your unique healthcare needs is. Invisalign usually offers faster results than conventional braces, transforming your smile in as little as three months, though most treatments take longer. You do not have to change your diet or avoid certain foods since Invisalign aligners can be removed. Of course one of the best advantages is that nobody will ever even notice you have Invisalign, making this a great option for anyone concerned about the aesthetics of their smile.
All those benefits do come with a higher price tag, meaning that Invisalign is not always the most cost-effective option. Invisalign also requires greater care and diligence. Aligners must be worn for the majority of the day if they are to work properly, and patients have to be careful to stay on top of cleaning them. This means they may not always be the best fit for younger patients or patients with hectic schedules.
Benefits of Invisalign
There are numerous benefits to choosing Invisalign. Brushing and flossing is just as easy as it always is since Invisalign can be removed, reducing the risk of cavities from food stuck in metal braces. Because Invisalign comes in sets and does not need to be adjusted, this means fewer visits to our office. Invisalign can even make teeth whitening easier than normal. Just keep using your favorite whitening toothpaste, and while wearing the trays it will actually help the paste adhere to the enamel of your teeth, increasing its efficacy.
