Metal brackets and wires no longer have to be the “go-to” solution for orthodontic treatment. Although highly effective at producing long-lasting results, many patients prefer a solution that does not shine a spotlight on their treatment. At Long Family Dental, we are pleased to offer an alternative that guarantees discreetness and subtlety – Invisalign in Cleburne. These clear aligners are customized according to your smile and allow for a more enjoyable and faster form of treatment. In much less time, you can see noticeable results that leave you feeling more confident about the health and aesthetics of your smile. If you are interested in learning more about Invisalign and whether you are a candidate, contact our office today to schedule an appointment.
Invisalign clear aligners were created by Align Technologies and use SmartTrack technology to reduce discomfort and ensure predictable results. These plastic trays fit closely against your teeth and apply gentle pressure to help move them in the right direction. Designed to be worn at least 20-22 hours each day, you will wear them for 1-2 weeks at a time before switching them out for the next set in the series. As a result, you can expect your crowded or gapped teeth or misaligned bite to undergo a dramatic transformation that will produce longer-lasting, life-changing results.
Depending on the severity of your dental problem as well as various factors we must consider (i.e., how many aligners you will need, do you require treatment for just the top or bottom row of teeth or both, etc.), your treatment plan will be personalized according to your individual needs.
Known as one of the most versatile clear aligner systems available, Invisalign is capable of treating all types of issues, including:
Teeth that sit too close together can make it difficult to maintain a good oral hygiene routine. Brushing and floss can be almost impossible because of the inability to get between teeth to thoroughly remove bacteria and food particles. As a result, you can be faced with an increased risk for tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease. Fortunately, Invisalign can create a shift in your smile, allowing additional space to form between your teeth and produce a more aesthetically pleasing, healthy smile.
Although gapped teeth are common among children, teens, and adults, the same problems can still exist as they do among individuals living with overcrowding. Cavities and gum disease are of primary concern when too much space existed between teeth. With Invisalign, we can close the gap and not only reduce your risk for many of the most common dental problems but also boost your confidence.
Overbites, underbites, crossbites, and even open bites can be easily treated using Invisalign. To avoid excessive wear and tear of tooth enamel as well as the potential for TMJ, we can use these clear aligners to shift your teeth and jaw in a way that improves the alignment and ultimately, the functionality of your smile.
When meeting with your dentist in Cleburne, we will most certainly go over the many benefits you can expect from choosing Invisalign. While the most obvious is its discreetness, many other advantages come with this type of treatment, such as:
No two patients are alike, which is why the cost of Invisalign in Cleburne is impossible to define unless you get in to see us for an appointment. Although viewed as a more expensive option than traditional braces, you will find there are many great opportunities to keep these clear aligners more affordable. At Long Family Dental, we don’t believe you should have to sacrifice your appearance just to save a few dollars, which is why our team will happily work with you to maximize any dental insurance benefits you might have as well as discuss financing options through CareCredit.
