Are you considering a straighter smile? If you’ve avoided orthodontics in the past because of the appearance and hassle of traditional braces, we have the answer: Invisalign in Weatherford. We offer Invisalign to our patients to give them a way to straighten their teeth with beauty and comfort. These clear, smooth plastic aligners are completely removeable and incredibly discreet! Read on to learn more about this treatment option and its benefits.
Invisalign treatment involves the use of a series of clear plastic aligners that are designed to slowly shift your teeth into place. After we’ve taken special impressions and images of your smile, we will create your Invisalign aligners. You’ll wear each aligner for 20 to 22 hours a day, for about 2 weeks, switching them out for the next in the series to progress your treatment. After about 10 to 18 months, you’ll have a perfectly straight smile. We will recommend that you wear a retainer to ensure the results of your treatment for a lifetime.
Many patients wonder whether or not Invisalign treatment is right for them. You may be a candidate if you have any of the following orthodontic issues:
Crowded teeth can negatively affect the appearance of your smile, but it can also make it much harder to brush and floss your teeth properly. This leads to a higher risk of cavities, decay, gum disease and more. Invisalign corrects this by shifting your teeth into beautiful alignment.
If you have gaps in your smile, you may be all too familiar with the effects that missing teeth can have on your appearance. However, gapped teeth are also home to bacteria and plaque that can cause a whole new set of issues. Invisalign will align your smile to eliminate gaps for a healthy set of teeth.
Overbite, underbite, and crossbite are some common bite alignment problems that patients can have. While more severe alignment issues can only be fixed with traditional orthodontics, Invisalign can help with mild to moderate bite problems to avoid excess wear and tear on your dental structure.
We offer Invisalign clear braces to our patients for these unique advantages:
