What are Invisalign Clear Aligners?

For patients who want a straighter smile, Invisalign orthodontics is one of the greatest advances in cosmetic dentistry. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable aligners to gradually move the teeth into the correct position. It's easy, it's painless, and no one will be able to tell you're wearing them. Invisalign should be worn as much as possible, but patients can remove the aligners for eating and cleaning their teeth. At Sweet Tooth Dental Loft in Frisco, TX, general dentist Dr. Camelia Cooper helps patients of all ages get a beautiful smile through the easy Invisalign process. 

What Are the Benefits of Invisalign Orthodontics?

Invisalign orthodontics in Frisco, TX can help align your teeth and avert future oral health issues with custom-made clear trays that present none of the issues and irritations associated with traditional metal braces. Advantages of Invisalign orthodontics at Sweet Tooth Dental Loft may include:

  • More concealed and more comfortable than braces
  • Trays can be removed for eating and other activities
  • No restrictions on beverages and foods

Am I a Candidate for Invisalign Orthodontics?

Adults and teens who desire a more discreet alternative to traditional braces may be prime candidates for Invisalign orthodontics. This choice can be suitable for treating dental malocclusion (an underbite, overbite, crossbite, or open bite), narrow dental arches, crooked or overcrowded teeth, or gapped teeth. Taking care of these issues can lead to improved comfort, corrected jaw function, better speaking and eating abilities, and more confidence in a smile. Clear teeth aligners are easily removed from the mouth, letting individuals of all ages in Frisco, TX enjoy their favorite food items with no dietary restrictions and care for their teeth without bulky metal standing in the way.

The Invisalign Orthodontics Treatment

To be fitted for Invisalign, Dr. Cooper will take photos, digital x-rays, and make impressions of the patient’s teeth. From these, a set of clear, plastic, customized aligners will be created to fit the patient’s mouth. The aligners are part of a treatment plan that will make gradual changes and adjustments to the teeth. A patient wears the aligners for a predetermined amount of time before moving onto the next aligner. Unlike traditional metal braces, aligners are pain-free and easily removable, which is ideal for eating, brushing, and flossing.

What Can I Expect After my First Invisalign Treatment?

Dr. Cooper will determine how long a patient needs to wear Invisalign based on the starting condition of the patient’s teeth. New aligners will be created about every 2 weeks or as needed to incrementally adjust the patient’s teeth. Throughout the process, the patient will have regular check-ups at Sweet Tooth Dental Lofts to confirm the patient’s progress. Most patients achieve full results in 1 – 2 years.

This includes when to remove your aligners, as well as any additional cleaning solutions that may be needed.

Will I need to wear a retainer following Invisalign orthodontics treatment?
Yes, in order to maintain your ideal results, you will need to wear retainers. There are various options for which retainers to wear, including Vivera retainers from the makers of Invisalign orthodontics. Following your Invisalign treatment, Dr. Cooper will talk with you about which retainers are best for you.

Is Invisalign orthodontics better than braces?
The answer depends on the severity of the misalignment of your teeth. For instance, if you only have mild to moderate misalignment, Invisalign orthodontics will likely be the better option for you due to its comfort and discreet nature. On the other hand, if you have severe orthodonotic issues, braces may be the right choice.

Is Invisalign painful?
Typically, Invisalign does not cause much pain, especially in comparison to braces. However, there may be some mild pain in the first few days or weeks after beginning the treatment. However, this does not occur in everyone and will eventually subside.

Will Invisalign orthodontics change the shape of my face??
Not usually. However, there can be some instances that cause minor changes in the overall shape of the face. For example, Invisalign orthodontics may realign your jaw if you have a bite problem. In this case, the shape of your jaw will likely change.
