Invisalign straightens your smile with your comfort and appearance in mind.
Having a great smile is an important asset to have, regardless if you're in a social or professional setting. This is something that studies have proven; a better first impression is made when someone has a clean, healthy and straight smile. Dr. Brad McConnell and Dr. Brooks Stevens, family dentists of Harris Parkway Dental Care in Fort Worth, Texas are happy to offer Invisalign to their patients who desire straighter teeth without showcasing the process, as traditional braces do.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign trays, known as aligners, are designed from 3D images taken at your Fort Worth family dentist's office. They are made of clear, flexible plastic that blends in with your teeth. Each aligner in the series has subtle differences that reflect the movement of your teeth as you wear them. Each aligner is worn approximately two weeks and then changed out for the next in the series. The process can take between nine and 15 months, depending on how diligent you are about wearing the aligners. Your Fort Worth family dentist will reminds your that the aligners can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing your teeth, but the ultimate goal is to wear them for 20 to 22 hours a day.
Why is Invisalign right for me?
There's no hiding conventional metal braces. They can be distracting and uncomfortable to wear. But Invisalign's clear aligners fit snugly against your teeth, making them inconspicuous to the casual observer. The comfort of the smooth, flexible trays is also unmatched, and the simple removal for cleaning is revolutionary. Your Fort Worth dentist often recommends Invisalign for patients aged 16 and older who have mild to moderate gaps and overlaps in their teeth. Younger people with more severe alignment problems may be better suited for other orthodontic treatments.
