Why Choose Invisalign?

Invisalign has many benefits over traditional braces. The most significant advantage is that they’re nearly invisible! However, other benefits make Invisalign the top choice for braces in Wichita Falls.

  • They’re removable: Invisalign clear aligners are trays you can take in and out of your mouth. While you must wear them at least 22 hours per day, you can remove them to eat, take photos, and clean your teeth. Make sure to remove your Invisalign clear aligners each time you eat or drink anything other than water. This will protect your aligners from damage and discoloration and allow you to eat all your favorite foods. That’s right, feel free to bite into an apple or eat the occasional Starburst! With traditional braces, you need to worry about damaging the brackets when you eat these foods, but this isn’t a concern when you remove your clear aligners. Do you have family photos coming up? While you likely won’t see your aligners in photos anyway, you can still remove them for the pictures if you wish.
  • They’re comfortable: Invisalign is comfortable. Unlike other clear aligner systems, we ensure that your aligners are fitted to your teeth and won’t irritate your gums while you switch from aligner to aligner.
  • Easy to clean: Remember that Invisalign is removable! This means that you can take better care of your teeth during treatment. Many teens have trouble cleaning around braces and might develop gum disease or tooth decay. Invisalign clear aligners negate this issue because you take them out and soak them while you brush your teeth after each meal.
  • Fewer office visits: With traditional braces, you’ll need to visit your dental office for frequent visits in which they would tighten your wires. With Invisalign, you switch from aligner to aligner at home. You’ll wear each one for two weeks before switching and only occasionally come to the office for check-ups.
  • Quick treatment: Invisalign can straighten your teeth in 24 months or less, depending on your severity of crookedness.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign uses the same tried and true orthodontic theory that cosmetic dentists have used since braces’ inception in 1819—just in different packaging. Your jawbone is ever-changing; that’s one reason why your teeth can become crooked in the first place. By placing pressure on your teeth, your jawbone will reform around your tooth roots as we move your teeth in place.

Invisalign movements are simulated on a computer, so we know before we start what your teeth will look at at the end of treatment. This also allows us to prepare for each new aligner since we know how your teeth will move. You’ll wear an aligner for two weeks and then switch to a new one which will further move your teeth. You’ll only need to visit our Wichita Falls dental office occasionally so we can monitor your progress and ensure things are going as planned. These visits are usually short and sweet because we accurately predict your tooth movements in advance.

Invisalign can correct all sorts of orthodontic issues.

  • Overbite

Are You an Invisalign Candidate?

Most people in Wichita Falls are candidates for Invisalign! However, there are a few conditions that would preclude you from treatment. Previous dental restorations, severely rotated teeth, large gaps, or severe bite problems. Typically those who are candidates for Invisalign:

  • Are in good oral health with no gum disease, cavities, or tooth decay.
  • Have fully developed teeth.
  • Are non-smokers.
  • Are diligent with oral hygiene.
  • Are responsible people who are committed to keeping their aligners in 22 hours a day at a minimum.
