Why Choose Midtown Family Dentistry of Dallas for Invisalign?

How Does Invisalign Work?

Using custom-made, clear, plastic aligners, Invisalign allows patients to straighten their teeth discreetly and with more flexibility than traditional metal braces. During your initial consultation, your dentist in Dallas will examine your smile and discuss your goals with Invisalign. Taking impressions of your smile, they will determine each step of your treatment before sending them off to the dental lab. There, technicians will construct your clear Invisalign aligners.

After a few weeks, you’ll return to our dental office where you will receive your new braces. You can expect to receive detailed instructions on how to wear them, how long, and what to do to keep them clean. If you want a successful experience with no delays, you must commit to wearing your aligners for 20-22 hours each day. The only time you will take out your trays is when you are eating, drinking, or cleaning them.

Every two weeks, unless otherwise instructed by one of our dentists, you will switch out your aligners for the next set in the series. You can expect to feel a minimal amount of discomfort for a few days. This is because your teeth are gently shifting in the desired direction. Taking an over-the-counter pain reliever can help to alleviate some of the discomfort.

Most patients can expect to be done with Invisalign treatment between 12 and 18 months. It just depends on the severity of the problem as to how long you’ll need to wear your clear braces. Once you’re finished with treatment, it will be necessary for you to wear a retainer to keep your teeth from shifting back into their original location.

Who is a Good Candidate for Invisalign?

Typically, only adults are eligible to receive Invisalign. Some dentists do offer a different form of Invisalign for teenagers, but the reality is that younger individuals are still experiencing growth and development when it comes to their teeth. Also, children and teenagers are less likely to commit to the number of hours the aligners need to be worn in order to have a successful Invisalign experience.

If you have crooked teeth, a bite alignment issue, gaps between your teeth, or overcrowding, and you are responsible enough to wear your aligners as instructed, you will be a great candidate for Invisalign.
