Could Invisalign Help Me?
Invisalign offers a simpler way to straighten your teeth. Our Fort Worth, TX, dentist, Dr. Brad McConnell at Harris Parkway Dental Care, explains how this innovative brace system could change your smile.
Excellent results without wires
If you've decided that braces aren't for you, you may change your mind once you learn about the advantages of Invisalign. Clear, comfortable aligner trays straighten teeth, not metal wires. Dr. McConnell designs a series of aligners for you during your visit to his Fort Worth office. Aligners are worn for two weeks, then switched for a new pair. Each set of aligners gently presses on teeth, changing their position.
Invisalign is a good option for all types of bite problems and also helps resolve crowding and spacing issues. It offers effective results for teenagers and adults who have mild to moderate orthodontic issues.
A more comfortable, convenient orthodontic option
One of the things that people dislike the most about traditional braces is their appearance. There's no way to hide your braces or make them less noticeable when you wear metal or ceramic braces. Because Invisalign aligners are clear, they're much less noticeable.
Removable aligners offer several advantages, including:
- Convenience: Would you rather not wear your aligners to a wedding, prom or another event? Simply take them out before you leave and put them back in your mouth when you return. You'll also remove your aligners during meals, which means that you'll have no food restrictions. You can drink some types of beverages when you wear your aligners, although you'll want to avoid sodas and other acidic drinks that can damage the plastic.
- Comfort: There are no wires to irritate your gums with the Invisalign system. Aligners are made of comfortable plastic and are designed to fit your teeth snugly.
- No Changes to Your Oral Hygiene Routine: You won't have to buy special flossing tools or spend 10 minutes brushing and flossing when you choose Invisalign. Aligners are removed when you brush, making this task as simple as always.
