Learn more about Invisalign and why so many people are choosing this unique orthodontic treatment.
Here at Browning Smile Design, our dentist Dr. Brent Browning believes that it’s never too late to get the smile you want. This is why we offer Invisalign to older teens and adults looking to fix everything from crooked teeth to gapped or crowded smiles in Northwest Houston, TX. Wondering how Invisalign works and whether it’s right for you? Here’s what you should know about Invisalign so you can make the best choice for your smile.
One of the biggest advantages of getting Invisalign is that the aligners that you will receive are custom-made from medical-grade plastic that is completely transparent. This means that when they are placed over your teeth, they should be nearly invisible. No wires and no metal.
Who thought that anyone would say that orthodontic treatment is comfortable, but Invisalign aligners are made from flexible material that can comfortably fit over your teeth. The edges of the plastic are also smoothed down to reduce the risk for gum irritation and sores.
Easy to Care for
We know how much caring for traditional braces can be a hassle at times, but it’s fairly easy to care for your aligners by simply cleaning them with warm water, non-abrasive toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush. Unlike traditional braces you can easily remove your aligners before cleaning them, making it easier to keep your orthodontic treatment clean and free of stains and trapped food.
No Need to Change Your Diet
We know that no one wants to avoid the foods they love and if that is deterring you from getting braces then you’ll be happy to hear that you can eat whatever you want with Invisalign. All you have to do is remove your aligners prior to eating or drinking (except water) and you can enjoy all foods without any restrictions.
Fewer Trips to the Dentist’s Office
As with any dental treatment, our Northwest Houston, TX, team wants to make sure that you are getting the results you want throughout the course of your Invisalign treatment. The best way to do that is to come into our office for regular checkups. Our dentists will give you all of your aligners in advance so you don’t have to come into the office as often and you won’t need to come in to have your braces tightened like you would with traditional metal braces. Most people will need to come in every 4-6 weeks.
