What does Invisalign treatment fix?
Even minor misalignment causes problems with your outward appearance and oral health. For example, when teeth overlap or there is overcrowding, it can be difficult to keep them free of plaque. This increases your risk of developing cavities and gum disease. Crooked teeth can also cause problems with your bite.
Invisalign clear aligners address a range of issues, such as:
- Crooked teeth
- Gaps in teeth
- Open bite
- Crowded smile
- Twisted teeth
What happens during an Invisalign consultation?
Invisalign clear aligners are an ideal way to straighten teeth, but they may not be the best solution in some cases. For example, Invisalign treatment is not recommended for people with severe misalignment or bite abnormalities. Metal braces may provide a better outcome in these cases.
During an assessment, Dr. Dickson can review your dental history, current condition, and cosmetic goals. We also take digital x-rays and impressions of your smile. This oral examination is essential so patients in Plano, Richardson, Frisco, Dallas, McKinney, or Farmers Branch, TX can have a personalized treatment plan.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment is a popular choice for almost anyone who wants a straighter, more attractive smile without the hassle of metal braces. Additional advantages include:
- Clear and discreet: Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible when worn, so most people will not notice them.
- Comfortable: The aligners are made from smooth plastic and fit snugly over your teeth for a seamless fit.
- Removable: Clear aligners can be removed when eating, drinking, brushing your teeth, and during special occasions.
- Convenient: Aligners are easily cleaned with water and a toothbrush – no special tools are needed.
How long does it take to straighten twisted teeth?
The length of treatment depends on the severity of your misalignment and how closely you follow the treatment plan provided by Dr. Dickson. Those who do not wear their aligners as often as recommended (at least 20 – 22 hours each day) will have to wait longer to see results.
That said, the average patient wears clear aligners for 12 – 18 months, but some individuals require more or less time. Our dental team is happy to answer questions about Invisalign treatment and how long it takes to help produce the smile you want.
