Straighten Your Smile Without Metallic Braces

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that offers a discreet and comfortable way to achieve a straighter smile. Unlike traditional metallic braces, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gently shift teeth into their desired positions. These virtually invisible aligners are custom-made for each patient, allowing for easy maintenance and the freedom to eat, drink, and brush without any restrictions. Embrace the convenience and confidence of Invisalign in Austin.

  • Teeth misalignment
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crowded teeth

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign utilizes advanced 3D computer imaging technology to create a personalized treatment plan for each patient. The process involves a series of custom-made, clear aligners that exert controlled forces on specific teeth, gradually shifting them into their desired positions. These aligners are worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next set in the series. Through consistent wear, Invisalign effectively guides teeth to align properly, addressing various orthodontic issues and achieving a beautifully straightened smile over time.

Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces

Invisalign offers a more discreet and comfortable orthodontic experience compared to traditional braces. While braces use metal brackets and wires to adjust teeth, Invisalign utilizes clear, removable aligners, making it virtually invisible. The aligners are smooth and cause less irritation to the mouth. Additionally, Invisalign allows for easy removal during eating and oral care, offering more convenience. Both options can effectively treat various orthodontic issues, but Invisalign provides a visually appealing alternative.

Reasons To Get Invisalign:

  • Discreet and virtually invisible
  • Removable for easy cleaning and eating
  • Comfortable and smooth aligners
  • No restrictions on food choices
  • Customized treatment plan
  • Reduced risk of gum and mouth irritation
  • Less frequent dental visits compared to braces
  • Effective treatment for various orthodontic issues.

How Invisalign Treatment Is Performed

Step 1. Consultation and Assessment
Your Invisalign journey begins with a consultation with a qualified dentist or orthodontist. During this initial appointment, the dental professional will assess your teeth, bite, and overall oral health to determine if Invisalign is the right option for you. They will discuss your goals and expectations, addressing any questions or concerns you may have.

Step 2. Digital Scanning and Treatment Plan
To create a treatment plan, your dentist will use advanced 3D digital scanning technology to capture detailed impressions of your teeth. This process is quick and comfortable, avoiding the need for traditional messy impressions. The digital scans allow for a precise analysis of your teeth, and they serve as the basis for crafting your custom-made Invisalign aligners.

Step 3. Tailored Aligners
Based on the digital scans, a series of custom-made, clear aligners will be created specifically for you. These aligners are designed to exert controlled forces on specific teeth, gently guiding them into their desired positions over time. Each set of aligners will differ slightly, reflecting the incremental adjustments required throughout the treatment process.

Step 4. Wearing Your Aligners
Once your aligners are ready, your dentist will provide you with the first set and instruct you on how to wear and care for them properly. You must wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours daily, only removing them for eating, drinking (except water), and oral hygiene routines. You must wear the aligners regularly to ensure optimal and effective treatment.

Step 5. Progress and Monitoring
As you progress through your Invisalign treatment, you will switch to a new set of aligners approximately every one to two weeks, depending on your individual plan. Regular check-ups with your dentist will allow them to monitor your progress and ensure your teeth move according to the treatment plan.

Step 6. Completion of Treatment
Once you have completed wearing all sets of aligners as per your treatment plan, you will likely require a retainer to maintain the new position of your teeth. Your dentist will discuss retainer options to help preserve the results achieved through Invisalign treatment. After your Invisalign treatment, you can revel in your newly aligned and beautifully transformed smile.

Results: What To Expect

During your Invisalign treatment, you may experience mild discomfort or soreness as your teeth adjust to each new set of aligners. This is normal and usually subsides within a few days. As you progress through your Invisalign treatment, you’ll notice gradual improvements in the alignment of your teeth. Each new set of aligners brings you closer to your desired smile. By wearing your aligners diligently, you can expect a beautifully straightened smile.
