Invisalign Treatment Process
After a thorough consultation, our dentists will take your dental x-rays, impressions, and other relevant information and share this with Invisalign. Based on this information, Invisalign technicians create your custom trays. This process of manufacturing your custom aligners takes about a month, after which your Invisalign aligners will be ready for collection.
Invisalign aligners come in a set of several trays. You must wear the trays progressively, switching to the next one in the series every two weeks or so. Our dentists in Houston, TX will be your trusted treatment partners during your treatment period and offer continuous guidance and monitoring.
Invisalign treatment typically lasts 12 to 18 months. If you haven’t achieved the desired outcome after the last tray, our dentist may order additional refinement trays. Once orthodontic treatment is complete, you will need to wear a retainer to ensure the newly repositioned teeth don’t shift back to their old, misaligned positions.
Benefits of Invisalign
If you have a crooked smile, then you’ve likely considered getting Invisalign to achieve better aesthetics. Invisalign offers numerous advantages, including:
- Invisalign treatment involves fewer visits to the dentist’s office compared to metal braces. Since you receive all your trays in advance, you don’t need to make multiple visits for readjustments.
- You can remove your trays to brush, floss as well as eat. This flexibility isn’t available with traditional metal braces.
- Some adult orthodontic patients often feel self-conscious or awkward when wearing metal braces. With Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about this problem.
- Braces can be painful, especially when the metallic parts scrape against gum tissues. Invisalign aligners are painless and offer greater comfort.
