It’s not often you hear teens or adults excited about getting metal braces. Although the results achieved from metal braces are often wonderful and life changing, it can be difficult to look forward to the inevitable small lifestyle changes and change in appearance. On the other hand, at ISmile Specialists, or dentist in Missouri City is always happy to see how excited patients get over Invisalign invisible braces. Invisalign is a great option for adults or older teens who want to forego the obstacles that metal braces present, while also achieving a beautiful and straighter smile.
Invisalign braces are a revolutionary technology that is growing in popularity each year. They are clear, hardly detectable, and can be removed for eating, singing, or whenever else you need your mouth totally clear. The optimal wear time for Invisalign is 22 hours, which gives you more freedom than metal braces. They work through a series of clear trays that are custom to your mouth. These trays are changed every so often, and gradually move your teeth into place After wearing one set for a few weeks, your teeth move and stabilize. Oncethe tray doesn’t feel that “tight” anymore, it means you are ready to move on to the next and your teeth have moved! The trays are made after our dentist in Missouri City takes molds of your teeth and bite, and creates a digital image of your mouth. We can even show you what your smile is going to look like at the end of your Invisalign treatment.
With Invisalign you get to live your life as you. There is no fear of breaking brackets from eating hard foods, or getting them stuck with caramel or gum. Since you’ll be able to eat the foods you want to, you can also brush and floss more easily than you would be able to with braces. You simply remove the trays when it’s time to brush and floss, and replace them when you’re done. If you have been wanting an enhanced smile but the idea of metal braces has been hindering that, call our ISmile Specialists today and make an appointment with our dentist in Missouri City.
