Invisalign the Invisible Way to Straighten Teeth

If you want to straighten your teeth, you will wish for a system that does it comfortably and discreetly. But is there such an orthodontic treatment? Before 1997, it never existed, but since then, Invisalign can straighten your teeth with a series of custom-made removable, clear braces. Invisalign treatment from Aqua Dental in Austin, Texas, gives the best of both worlds — invisible, comfortable treatment and beautiful, straight teeth.

Issues that can be addressed with Invisalign

Considering Invisalign? You may be surprised that this treatment can address more than one type of orthodontic challenge. Invisalign can fix several issues, including:

  • Widely gapped teeth
  • Crossbite
  • Crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Underbite
  • Overbite

Straightening your teeth does more good than just improving your appearance. Straighter teeth are easier to clean because there are no hidden, hard-to-clean spots that attract plaque build-up. Also, a perfectly aligned bite eliminates jaw issues that cause headaches, jaw discomfort, and other unpleasant symptoms.

What to expect from Invisalign treatment

Straightening teeth with Invisalign is pretty straightforward. The process starts with booking an appointment with an Invisalign dentist like Dr. Chitra Pradeep. The dentist evaluates your mouth to ensure you are gum disease and cavity-free. If your candidacy for Invisalign is approved, we will take digital images of your mouth and use 3D software to simulate the progression of your treatment. Through simulation, your dentist shows you how each tooth moves to perfection during treatment.

The next step is to send the images to a dental lab to create your series of aligners. Once the aligners are ready, you will pick them up from our office, and the dentist will advise on the order in which to wear them. Typically, each set is worn for about two weeks before moving to the next.

Pro-tip: If you want faster treatment with Invisalign, wear your aligners for at least 20-22 hours daily. Only remove your aligners when eating or cleaning your teeth.

Benefits of Invisalign treatment

The benefits of Invisalign speak for themselves. But for the record, here are the pros of straightening teeth with Invisalign:

  • It doesn’t alter the way you clean your teeth
  • The treatment uses minimally invisible braces to straighten teeth subtly
  • It’s comfortable — no wires to irritate the soft tissues of your mouth
  • Suitable for patients allergic to metal
  • It doesn’t restrict you to what to eat
  • 50% faster than traditional braces when used correctly

The versatile nature of Invisalign aligners makes them perfect for fixing orthodontic conditions. Clear braces are the go-to orthodontic treatment, whether it’s crooked teeth, bite misalignment, or crowded teeth.
