Invisalign is a state-of-the-art teeth-straightening solution composed of a series of clear aligners that gradually shift teeth into the desired position. You can remove Invisalign aligners while brushing your teeth, eating, and for special occasions like a job interview or wedding.
At Oak Dentistry in Arlington, Texas, our dentists are experienced in providing customized Invisalign treatments and can help improve your smile and your confidence with these clear and discreet aligners.
Can You Benefit From Invisalign?
With Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth without feeling self-conscious like you would with metal braces. It is an excellent option for people who want a better smile but need a discreet solution.
What Materials Are Invisalign Aligners Made From?
Invisalign aligners are customized dental trays made of medical-grade polyurethane resins. These resins are composed of methylene diphenyl diisocyanate and hexanediol. Invisalign aligners are quality-assured and safe.
How Does Invisalign Work?
The custom aligners you wear throughout your Invisalign treatment will gently apply pressure to the teeth that need to be adjusted and gradually shift them into their proper positions. For the best results, you'll need to wear the aligners 20 to 22 hours each day.
Every 1 to 2 weeks, as your treatment progresses, our dentists will provide new aligners. Invisalign treatment is painless and comfortable, but you will feel a little pressure as the aligners move your teeth.
How Can Invisalign Help With Orthodontic Issues?
Invisalign can address a wide range of orthodontic problems such as crooked teeth, overbite (when the upper teeth extend over the lower teeth), and underbite (when the bottom teeth extend over the upper teeth).
Invisalign can also fix tooth gaps, straighten out crowded teeth that are twisted to one side or the other, correct crossbites (which occur when the upper teeth fit inside the lower teeth when the mouth is closed) and open bites (which is when the two don't meet).
Is Invisalign a Suitable Treatment for Any Orthodontic Problem?
While Invisalign can fix many dental issues, it can't fix everything. To determine if Invisalign is right for you, our experienced dentists at Oak Dentistry in Arlington, Texas, will first assess your dental health and dental issues and then recommend the best course of action.
