Do you have crooked teeth but don’t want braces? Ask us about Invisalign. Invisalign is an orthodontic system that uses a series of aligners instead of brackets and wires. The discreet aligners are clear and virtually unnoticeable. Patients can also remove their aligners to brush, floss, eat, and drink. Invisalign is a comfortable cosmetic dental treatment at Argyle Family Dentistry in Argyle, TX.
Invisalign Treatment in Argyle, TX
We will take digital impressions of your teeth to plan your Invisalign treatment. Our office will send these impressions to a lab, where technicians create your Invisalign aligners from clear, durable plastic. Once the first pair of aligners is complete, we will fit them on your teeth in our office. We will also provide you with a case to keep your aligners in when they are not on your teeth.
You should wear your aligners twenty to twenty-two hours a day. If you do not wear your aligners for many hours or multiple days, it will take longer to complete treatment. You must also remove your aligners to eat and drink anything other than water. Eating with aligners on your teeth can stain or damage the clear plastic. However, unlike metal braces, you can eat and drink freely without the aligners on your teeth. You can also brush and floss your teeth more thoroughly because the Invisalign aligners are removable.
The clear aligners are switched out every few weeks as they shift the teeth into a straighter position. Once you complete your Invisalign treatment, we will provide you with retainers. Wearing retainers prevents orthodontic relapse, which occurs when the teeth return to their original positions. The retainers will keep your teeth straight. You will begin to wear the retainers daily and gradually wear the retainers during sleep to maintain your Invisalign results.
