Invisalign Braces in Garland, TX
Having straighter teeth can boost your oral health and self-confidence. When teeth align properly, they’re easier to care for and won’t wear down as quickly.
But when it comes to teeth straightening, most adults aren’t fond of wearing traditional braces. Fortunately, you can get just as good of results without metal brackets and wires, thanks to Invisalign.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign braces are clear aligners that fit over your teeth. Instead of a wire and bracket bonded on one side, Invisalign moves your smile from various angles. Each set of trays is slightly different than the last, nudging your bite into the desired position.
- Easy to clean
When you choose Invisalign treatment, you can enjoy all your favorite foods. Since you remove aligners during meals, nothing is off limits! Plus, brushing and flossing is as easy as ever because there are no fixed appliances to clean around. Simply take your trays out, clean your smile as normal, then brush your aligners before putting them back in.
Invisalign’s translucent design makes them practically invisible during everyday situations.
What to Expect
A typical Invisalign treatment takes anywhere from 12-18 months to complete, although it varies on a case-by-case basis. You’ll wear your aligners for two weeks at a time, then progress to the next set in the series. Our Garland dentist will only need to see you every 6-8 weeks to ensure everything is moving along as it should. During your short visit we’ll send you home with the next several sets of aligners.
Once treatment is complete, you’ll have a clear retainer to wear on an intermittent basis, keeping your smile’s alignment in check.
