If straighter teeth and more ideal jaw alignment are your desire, but you can’t bear the thought of wearing braces and the tangle of metal wires and brackets that constitute them, we at ISmile Specialists have some really good news for you. With Invisalign, you get an alternative to braces that is more comfortable, more highly advanced, does not cause a negative effect on your appearance, and yet still does a fantastic job in moving your teeth into the proper position. Our dentist in Sugar Land is pleased to provide the benefits that Invisalign has to offer.
Technically speaking, Invisalign aren’t braces, but are clear aligners made out of plastic. As such, and without the brackets that are so obvious with traditional braces, no one has to know that you’re wearing the aligner except for you. It’s virtually undetectable to the naked eye. Our dentist in Sugar Land makes your aligners right here using modern 3-D computer technology. You will wear as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate Invisalign aligners during your course of treatment. Each one will be crafted to precision to fit you perfectly and to serve its unique purpose in the overall scheme. You’ll wear it for about two weeks and then move on to the next in the series.
Unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners are removable. However, you will only take them out to brush, floss, and eat. Otherwise, you will wear them all day, every day, even while you sleep. And because you don’t wear it while you eat, there are no annoying restrictions on the types of foods that you can eat. Your aligner is also more comfortable than metal braces, not having the tendency to dig into your gums. Call us today to schedule a consultation with our dentist in Sugar Land to find out if Invisalign is right for you.
But before you think that straightening your teeth is just about cosmetic improvement, remember that misaligned teeth can bring with them discomfort and are harder to brush and floss between, making you more prone to the effects of plaque, including tooth decay and gum disease. Our dentist in Sugar Land is committed to your highest level of dental health and giving you the most attractive smile possible.
