Do you ever look in the mirror and wish for a straighter smile – but dread the idea of metal braces? We get it! Braces are bulky, uncomfortable, and they make eating and oral hygiene a hassle. And let’s face it, they’re anything but discreet! Fortunately, you don’t have to wear braces to get the straight smile you’ve always wanted.
Invisalign treatment uses a series of custom-made clear aligners (made from BPA-free plastic) to gently shift your teeth into alignment. You’ll need to wear the aligners for most of the day to be effective, but the great thing about Invisalign is that the aligners are removable. Approximately every two weeks, you’ll swap out your old aligners for the next set in the series. For most of our Austin TX patients, treatment is generally completed within 12 months! How awesome is that?
Invisalign has a number of health and hygienic benefits over traditional braces, including:
Although we typically tend to think of straight smiles as a cosmetic issue, crooked teeth are also an oral health concern. They can put stress on the supporting tissues in your mouth and make it difficult to brush and floss thoroughly. This can put you at greater risk of gum disease, cavities, and tooth loss. Crooked or misaligned teeth can also affect your bite, which can cause head and neck pain, or even temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ/TMD).
