At Deep Ellum Advanced Dentistry, Invisalign is a type of clear aligner therapy that uses a series of custom-made trays to move your teeth into the desired position gradually. The trays are made of smooth plastic and are removable for eating and cleaning. Unlike traditional braces, the trays are clear, making them less noticeable than metal brackets and wires.
Each set of trays is worn for two weeks at a time, and each set moves your teeth closer to the final desired position. You’ll wear each set for about two weeks and then switch to the next set in the series. Your dentist will monitor your progress and give you new sets of trays every few weeks until your treatment is complete.
One of the most significant benefits of Invisalign is that the trays can be removed to make way for eating and cleaning. This makes it easier to maintain good oral hygiene during treatment. Additionally, the clear trays are less noticeable than traditional braces, making them popular for adults and older teens.
The Invisalign Treatment Process
Using 3D imaging, our dentist in Dallas, TX - Dr. Wing, will create a customized treatment plan that outlines the movements of your teeth throughout the treatment process. Based on your treatment plan, a series of clear aligners will be created. Each set of aligners represents a specific stage of your teeth's movement.
You'll wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, gradually moving your teeth according to the treatment plan. Aligners should be worn for at least 20 to 22 hours a day. You'll have periodic checkups with your Invisalign provider to ensure your treatment progresses. New aligners will be provided during these visits. Once your treatment is complete, our dentist may recommend a retainer to maintain your newly aligned smile.
The Benefits of Invisalign
One of the most significant advantages of Invisalign is its discreet appearance. The clear aligners are virtually invisible, allowing you to straighten your teeth without drawing attention to your orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign in Dallas is made from smooth, BPA-free plastic that's comfortable to wear. There are no wires or brackets that can cause irritation or discomfort.
Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can take them out for eating, brushing, and flossing. This eliminates food restrictions and makes maintaining oral hygiene easier.
No Dietary Restrictions
Unlike traditional braces, there are no dietary restrictions with Invisalign. You can enjoy all your favorite foods without worrying about damaging brackets or wires.
Invisalign utilizes advanced digital technology to create a 3D model of your teeth with which our dentist can plan the entire treatment process. This precision ensures accurate results and minimal adjustments.
Invisalign has redefined how people approach orthodontic treatment, offering a convenient, comfortable, and discreet solution for achieving a beautifully aligned smile.
