Very few people are born with perfectly straight teeth. While mild to moderate alignment concerns may not pose an immediate threat to your health, you have every right to desire a straighter, more attractive smile. For the millions of patients who are interested in correcting minor crowding or spacing problems, Invisalign orthodontics have been an effective and satisfying solution.
Subtle straightening can be achieved without making a huge production of metal bands, wires, and rubber bands. The orthodontic methods of the past can be bypassed in favor of an alternative that is free of metal components, more comfortable, and far more attractive. Plus, when your treatment is driven by an esthetic or cosmetic desire, your teeth can be straightened much faster than you would probably expect.
Most Invisalign cases can be completed in about a year. Some of the cases can be completed in just a few months! What’s not to love about straighter teeth and a shorter treatment time?
The concept for achieving orthodontic success with Invisalign is only possible with the help of cutting edge technology and your dedicated cooperation. To begin, your dentist will collect information about your smile by way of a thorough consultation, dental x-rays, and impressions of your teeth. This data will then be forwarded to the world-class Invisalign facility where an entire series of clear aligners will be molded to fit your teeth.
When the aligners have been shipped to your dentist, you will be instructed to wear each set of trays for a specified period of time before transitioning to the next set. Ultimately, your teeth will be gently pushed into place to reveal a more orderly smile. Your dedication to wearing the aligners at least 22 hours each day (only removing them for meals and brushing) will be the key to achieving the results that you expect.
Sometimes, it’s the little things that make all the difference. To learn more about making subtle changes with Invisalign, contact the dental office of Dr. Lori Logan at 281-256-6866 for a consultation today.
