Having crooked teeth as an adult can be a difficult situation; you naturally want a straighter smile, but you would probably rather not wear metal braces to work or on a date. The good news is that orthodontic treatment doesn’t always have to stick out; Dr. Nguyen can offer Invisalign so that you can realign your teeth without the need for distracting metal brackets. Schedule a consultation today to learn more about the corrections Invisalign clear braces in Midlothian, TX can make.
Invisalign is a custom-tailored orthodontic treatment that utilizes clear aligners instead of metal brackets and wires. When you visit our office for a consultation, Dr. Nguyen will examine your mouth and let you know whether you’re a good candidate for the procedure. If you are and want to go through with the process, we’ll craft a special treatment plan just for you, and walk you through it.
In order to craft your Invisalign aligners, we’ll take impressions of your mouth and send them off to our laboratory. As soon as your trays arrive, we’ll call you back in to show you how to use them and start the process. Every six to eight weeks, you’ll revisit us for a quick progress check and so we can give you the next series of aligners in your treatment.
Many patients are surprised to learn that Invisalign orthodontic treatment can address a variety of issues that range from mild to moderate in severity. During your initial consultation, we’ll let you know if clear trays are the best solution for your unique problems. If not, we can refer you for traditional orthodontics or surgery.
Teeth that are bunched together can make it hard to effectively brush and floss. This can increase your risk of developing oral health problems like cavities and gum disease. Invisalign trays can help slowly shift your teeth to lay flush with each other, making it easier to clear away harmful substances when you brush.
Some people can feel self-conscious about having a gap between their front teeth. Invisalign aligners can act to close this and create a complete-looking, even smile that you can feel proud to show off.
Whether you have an overbite, underbite, or crossbite, Invisalign trays can help adjust your teeth to reduce the amount of strain that bite problems put on your facial muscles and jaw. Improving this issue can help reduce your risk of TMJ dysfunction and teeth grinding.
Invisalign treatment is a popular choice among adult and teen patients because it offers a variety of unique advantages, including:
The cost of Invisalign treatment varies from patient-to-patient, depending on what types of orthodontic issues need to be resolved and how many aligners are needed throughout the process. During your consultation, Dr. Nguyen will provide you with a cost and discuss your treatment options with you. Typically, Invisalign isn’t covered by dental insurance benefits, but we’ll still be happy to double-check with your insurance company and speak with you about our Invisalign special and additional financing plans that we offer.
