For many decades, people who wanted to have straighter teeth had only one option: wearing traditional metal braces. Although those dental appliances worked well (and still do), a lot of people were embarrassed to wear them. In fact, some dental patients chose to simply live with crooked teeth rather than face the embarrassment of wearing metal braces. But thanks to Invisalign® technology, all that has changed.
Invisalign® allows patients to straighten their teeth by wearing plastic aligners that are completely clear – in other words, no one ever has to know that you’re wearing a dental appliance at all! This remarkable technology has proven extremely effective for people of all ages, and we’re proud to offer it as one of the many services we provide for our Taylor, TX, area patients.
Important Information about Invisalign®
Your dentist will begin by fitting you with a set of custom-made, clear plastic aligner trays. You’ll be required to wear the trays for at least 22 hours each day, removing them only to eat and clean your teeth. After that, your dentist will provide a new set of aligners every couple of weeks. As the months pass by, your teeth will gradually shift into their new, straighter positions!
While it’s true that Invisalign® has proven very effective for that vast majority of patients, it may not be for everyone. Talk to your dentist. He can provide you with more information and help you decide whether this innovative dental technology is the right choice for you or someone in your family.
