Looking for a change in your personal appearance, self-confidence, and oral health? Invisalign clear aligners from Browning Smile Design in Northwest Houston may deliver all three. Comfortable, removable, unnoticeable and best of all, effective, these acrylic appliances straighten smiles quickly. We know you'll like them better than metal or ceramic braces, and that you'll love the results.
The purpose of orthodontic treatment
In general, braces correct a variety of smile alignment issues such as:
- Tooth tipping and rotation
- Protruding front teeth
Orthodontic correction leaves your smile better looking, more functional, easier to clean, and healthier—in other words, less prone to gum disease and tooth decay. Plus, people with complex orthodontic problems often suffer headaches, as well as pain in the jaw and face. Even so, many patients (and adults in particular) shy away from braces because of their obvious look, dietary limitations, and complicated hygiene requirements.
The benefits of Invisalign in Northwest Houston
Invisalign counters typical orthodontic problems with 18 to 30 pairs of custom-made appliances which snap over the top and bottom teeth, shifting them into proper alignment over an average of 12 months. This is substantially quicker than traditional braces.
Smooth and thin, Invisalign aligners are removable to brush, floss, eat and attend special occasions (if you choose). Just keep your treatment on track by wearing the aligners according to your individualized care plan—usually 20 to 22 hours daily. Aligners are changed out every 2 weeks.
How do you know you qualify for Invisalign treatment?
Dr. Browning can tell you if you are a good candidate. At Browning Smile Design, he will examine your teeth and gums and take a special three-dimensional scan. From there, instructions are sent to the Invisalign lab for fabrication of your aligners. In fact, your consultation can include images of how your smile will appear as you move through your treatment. Amazing!
In addition, the best Invisalign candidates are diligent about their oral hygiene. Daily flossing and twice-daily brushing are must do's, as are six-week progress checks with Dr. Browning.
You can look good and feel great
A beautiful smile makes everyone happy, and you can have one with Invisalign! Don't hesitate. The American Association of Orthodontists says that 20 percent of patients with braces or aligners are adults. Why not join the ranks?
