Having a straight, healthy smile is something many people desire to have, but oftentimes our teeth are crooked or flawed in some way. One of those most common solutions to a crooked smile is orthodontic treatment, and now with modern dental techniques, teeth can be straightened in a more minimally invasive and often quicker method. At Lynn Dental Care, we offer multiple solutions to correct crooked teeth, from traditional braces to Invisalign® clear braces. Invisalign allows us to help treat crooked or gapped teeth in a discreet manner that doesn’t involve metal brackets or wires. Most other people will never know you were wearing braces at all!
When beginning the Invisalign process, we capture digital images of your mouth and teeth to construct models of your bite. Our dental team can then digitally design a treatment plan that will shift your teeth into the proper position. You will then get sets of Invisalign aligners that slowly adjust your teeth into proper position as you wear them. The Invisalign aligners are usually switched out every few weeks for a more finely tuned set, which continually adjusts your teeth. They must be worn between 20-22 hours a day to be most effective, with patients only needing to remove them to eat or clean their teeth. With proper compliance, many patients experience a shorter treatment time to achieve their straight smile.
Invisalign in North Dallas, TX, utilizes clear, plastic aligners to gently position your teeth. These aligners are virtually invisible while being worn and can be removed when eating, drinking or cleaning your teeth. Many of our patients appreciate the ability to maintain a normal lifestyle with Invisalign and not be restricted on foods or drinks. For most people, the process is often more gentle on the teeth since the roots move with less force, giving you a gentler alignment. Overall, Invisalign cosmetic dentistry allows patients to live their normal lifestyle while working toward a straighter, healthier smile.
Invisalign is often used as a form of cosmetic dentistry for many patients, but it can also significantly improve functionality of your bite as well. For this reason, we often include Invisalign in our smile makeover or full mouth reconstruction treatment plans. If you’re interested in improving the look or function of your mouth without the unattractive brackets and wires, Patients in North Dallas, TX looking for Invisalign can schedule a consultation to help you discover if the treatment is right for you!
