Invisalign Braces in Jacksonville, TX
Teeth misalignment is more than just an appearance issue. Did you know that crooked teeth can increase your risk of cavities and gum disease? Crooked teeth are more difficult to clean and can also lead to bite problems. If you’ve always wanted straight teeth but hate the thought of wearing metal in your mouth, your Jacksonville, TX dentists have the perfect solution: Invisalign braces.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a modern orthodontic system that uses clear, removable aligners to reposition your teeth gradually. Each aligner is made of high-grade plastic that fits perfectly over your teeth. Because the aligners are transparent, you can smile with confidence knowing that there’s nothing to distract from your mouth. Invisalign aligners are removable, so there are no diet restrictions—eat whatever you want! It’s also a breeze to brush and floss because there’s no metal to trap food.
Other Invisalign benefits:
• Comfortable. There are no metal wires or brackets to harm your gums, lips and cheeks.
• No teeth discoloration. Invisalign does not cause stains and discolorations because there are no brackets or bands.
• Fewer trips to the dentist. Your All Smiles dentist will give you three or four aligners at a time. Each aligner is worn for two weeks at a time meaning you won’t need to be seen every month like you would with traditional braces.
How Invisalign Straightens Your Teeth
Does invisalign work? Dr. Folden and Dr. Westbrook will create a customized straightening plan for each patient. Next, they will take photos and impressions of your teeth and send the images to the Invisalign company that will create the aligners. The aligners are designed to move your teeth gradually based on the plan created by your dentists. This means that your teeth will be straighter every time you wear a new aligner. You’ll wear each aligner for about two weeks until your teeth are straight.
