Invisalign in Richmond, TX

It is common for adults to associate orthodontic treatment with teens sporting a mouthful of metal. Rightly so, this does describe many patients who wear dental braces. But, modern technology has redefined the design of today’s orthodontics. Patients now have the option of wearing discreet Invisalign clear aligners as an alternative to metal braces.

Crafted of undetectable polyurethane plastic, Invisalign is virtually invisible. The clear aligners are not cemented on to teeth like traditional metal or clear orthodontics; the trays are removable for eating, teeth brushing and flossing, and for special occasions. This is a great benefit, but it can also hinder progress if you take the aligners out too often. Following your treatment plan is important.

Advantages of Clear Aligners

There are many advantages to choosing Invisalign instead of wearing traditional metal braces:

  • Easier Teeth Cleaning: Removable orthodontic appliances allow you to clean your teeth and mouth more thoroughly than with metal braces, for better oral hygiene.
  • Discreet Orthodontic Treatment: If you are turned off by the visibility of metal braces, or if the look just doesn’t fit with your image, invisible aligners might be the orthodontic solution for you.
  • No Food Restrictions: To avoid damage to traditional metal brackets and wires, it is necessary to modify your dietary choices. With Invisalign, you will have more food choices because the aligners can be removed for eating.
  • Comfortable to Wear: Invisalign is made of soft, flexible materials that will not cause mouth irritation.
  • Bruxism Protections: If you clench or grind your teeth regularly, clear aligners can provide a protective barrier against excessive wear.

Advancements in dental technology have to lead to further improvements, and now clear aligners can correct malocclusions that were once too complex for treatment with removable orthodontic trays. To see if you’re a candidate for Invisalign, book a consultation with our office today.
