Invisalign is an orthodontic option for straightening your smile. Invisalign can be used to straighten crooked teeth, correct spacing problems due to gaps or overcrowding, and realign misaligned teeth. There are several benefits to choosing Invisalign over other options, such as braces. A dentist can determine if Invisalign might work for you. At Today’s Dental, Dr. Tiberiu Oancea and Dr. Jeromy Thornton are your dentists for Invisalign in Houston.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign utilizes aligner trays to straighten the teeth instead of the brackets and wires associated with braces. Patients wear the trays over the top and bottom rows of teeth. The aligner trays straighten the teeth by gently exerting pressure on the teeth in the same way braces do. Over time, the teeth gradually move toward the desired position. The average length of time needed to straighten the teeth with Invisalign is about twelve months.
Is Invisalign for teens or adults?
Invisalign is used to straighten permanent teeth and is suitable for both teens and adults. Invisalign’s aligner trays are custom made to perfectly fit each patient, whether a teen or adult. Your Houston Invisalign dentists at Today’s Dental can assess each patient’s orthodontic needs to determine if Invisalign is an appropriate option.
Can Invisalign correct an overbite or underbite?
Invisalign can be used to correct certain types of bite problems, such as an overbite or underbite. Invisalign can also help correct cross bites and open bites. In some cases, though, traditional braces are a more suitable option for patients with severe bite problems. The dentists at Today’s Dental can determine if Invisalign could correct your particular bite problem.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
There are many benefits to choosing Invisalign for straightening your smile. Invisalign is a discreet option because the aligner trays are made of a clear plastic material that is barely noticeable to others. Another benefit of Invisalign is that the trays are comfortable because the plastic material used to make them is soft and flexible. Additionally, there are no hard brackets or wires to poke or irritate the inside of the mouth. They trays are also removable, which makes it easier to clean the teeth, which can be challenging with braces.
