Invisalign at Smiles on Greatwood Dentistry.
We offer Invisalign dental solution in Sugar Land Texas at Smiles on Greatwood Dentistry.
Invisalign is a type of teeth treatment that helps to straighten your teeth without the use of metal braces. Invisalign involves wearing a series of aligners made of clear plastic. These aligners are custom-made and they help shift your teeth into the proper position.
Invisalign aligners do not include any metal and are custom made for your teeth. The aligners are a series of trays that gradually shift your teeth into the desired position. Each tray is made in such a way that the teeth are slightly straighter than the previous tray.
Who should get it?
If you want straighter teeth, but they don’t want the ugly metal braces, Invisalign is your best option.
Invisalign can correct dental problems such as gapped teeth, mild bite problems (overbite, under bite, cross bite or open bite) and crowded teeth. These problems are unsightly and can affect overall dental health.
All you need to do is simply pop the trays in and you’re ready to go! Invisalign aligners are clear and hardly noticeable. This makes them a perfect choice for people who want a less obvious teeth straightening option.
Invisalign doesn’t rub or irritate your mouth and give you sores like metal braces can.
How do you get it?
First, you will consult with our dentist to determine whether Invisalign will work for your teeth.
After your consultation, our dentist will perform a digital scan to get 3-D images of your teeth and to map out their movements over the course of your treatment. The images are then used to create your custom-made aligners. You will receive a new set of aligners every two weeks, until your teeth finally move to their ideal positions.
The treatment time for an average adult case is about 12 months but it varies from depends on the severity of each individual case. For younger people, treatment time can vary.
You can wear your Invisalign aligners as you go about your daily routine. They need to be cleaned in the morning and evening by brushing them like you do your natural teeth.
