INVISALIGN IN HOUSTON, TX

Invisalign, the most popular type of clear braces in Houston, has a reputation for giving patients straight teeth in a discreet way. However, many patients do not initially realize that this treatment also comes with several other advantages. Here is a look at what Invisalign does for patients, who can get Invisalign, and how our Houston Invisalign dentist provides this treatment.

Benefits Of Invisalign

The same design that makes Invisalign discreet also makes it more comfortable and convenient, as well as support for healthy teeth and gums. While athletes and woodwind musicians, in particular, are bound to appreciate Invisalign comfort, many patients would probably prefer to avoid the abrasion of metal brackets in favor of smooth plastic aligners. Because the aligners are to be taken out before meals, patients can eat all of their usual foods during treatment. Brushing and flossing are also made simpler thanks to this removability, which prevents cavities and gum disease. Finally, Invisalign straightens teeth more quickly than metal braces.

Whereas eligible adults can visit our provider of Invisalign in Houston for the Full treatment, adolescents under the age of seventeen will receive the Teen version. There is also a third type of Invisalign, Express, which is made just for patients needing only minor corrections.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign is a popular corrective dental procedure that can help people achieve a straighter and healthier mouth gradually over a period of time. Many people turn to Invisalign as a replacement for traditional metal braces, while others use it when they need faster cosmetic or aesthetic results.

The Invisalign Process

Invisalign always begins with a consultation to make sure you are a candidate. Once candidacy is confirmed, dental records are taken, including bite impressions, photos, and X-rays. In combination with the treatment designed by our Houston Invisalign dentist, these records are used to produce the aligners. After the aligners are ready, you start wearing the aligners for two weeks at a time, for at least twenty hours per day, until treatment is complete. This treatment can give most patients a healthier, better-looking smile, with fewer inconveniences compared to other options. Here are just a few benefits of Invisalign:

  • Comfort
  • Convenience
  • Looks Great
  • Beautiful Smile

Are There Alternatives to Invisalign?

There are several alternatives including traditional metal braces, ceramic braces or even lingual braces. There are pros and cons to each one depending on your specific circumstances. Unfortunately, not all patients are candidates for clear aligners, but we will do our best to find the best treatment option for your teeth. I won’t go into the different options here because we already have a full article dedicated to the different alternatives you can read here.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost? 

The total cost for Invisalign will vary on a case by case basis. The cost can depend on how many trays you need, how long your treatment will last, as well as whether or not your insurance will cover all (or any) of the procedure.

Benefits Of Using Invisalign

Many people wonder whether or not they should use Invisalign or traditional metal braces. Both procedures have their benefits and disadvantages. Invisalign has several notable benefits that play a significant role in this treatment’s popularity.

Comfortablity:

Invisalign is much more comfortable than traditional metal braces due to the material that the trays are made from. Invisalign does not have any sharp or harsh edges that can cause you to nick your tongue or even scrape your mouth; instead, Invisalign uses clear, solid trays made from smooth material.

Appearance:

Invisalign—true to its name—is nearly invisible and most people will not be able to tell you are wearing Invisalign when your trays are in; compared to obvious metal braces, Invisalign is a great option for people concerned about the aesthetic appearance of your smile while they are in the midst of Invisalign treatment.

Shorter time frame:

Invisalign treatment typically lasts about 12 months for most patients. This is shorter than most braces cases.

Removable:

Invisalign trays are removable, so you can take them out when you need to eat or drink, which will go a long way towards preventing food debris getting caught in your trays.
