Get A Straight Smile Without Metal Braces

The older you get, the less comfortable you’re going to feel about pursuing your orthodontic treatment. Sure, having straight teeth would be a huge confidence booster, but is it worth it if that means wearing metal braces for the next couple of years?

Fortunately, that’s not a question you have to answer thanks to our alternative orthodontic options at My Dentist in Plano. We offer ways for adults and teens to get a straight smile without metal braces:

  • Invisible Braces – Similar to traditional braces, this option involves the use of clear aligners to move your teeth into position. We use clear aligners so you get the same amazing results without drawing unwanted attention to your braces. Invisible braces get the job done while blending in with the natural color of your teeth!If you don’t have major bite complications and simply want to straighten crooked, crowded teeth, our Invisible Braces are a great option. It’s a system that also uses clear plastic aligners that you switch out every couple of weeks to gently move your teeth into the right position. You can remove the aligners for meals and daily brushing and flossing, and the best part about our Invisible Braces is that people will hardly notice you’re wearing them! Treatment is often completed within 12 months, so you can get results much faster than standard braces at no cost to your appearance or self-esteem.

Invisible Braces FAQ

How should I properly clean my clear orthodontic aligners?

The best way to clean your clear aligners is with warm water and Invisalign Cleaning Crystals. You could also use a cleaning tablet and brush your clear aligners. Over time, your aligners can get stains, so it’s important to clean them regularly. If you have questions about the maintenance necessary for keeping your clear orthodontic aligners at their most effective, please contact My Dentist in Plano to learn more.

How much should I wear my aligners each day?

It is recommended that you wear your clear aligners for at least 20 – 22 hours of the day. They should only be taken out when you eat, brush your teeth, or clean the aligners.

How long does it take to straighten my teeth with Invisible Braces?

The length of your orthodontic treatment plan will vary from patient to patient and depend on the severity of the misalignment that needs to be fixed. However, on average, most patients will wear their aligner trays for 12 – 18 months.

How often will I need to change out my aligner trays?

Most patients will change their trays every 1 – 2 weeks. During your orthodontic treatment at My Dentist in Plano, we will have you come in every 4 – 6 weeks to get the latest impressions of your teeth, so we can check your progress and create your next round of trays.

Don’t Wait To Get The Straight, Healthy Smile You Deserve

Your teeth never actually stop moving, so even if you had braces as a child, you may not see the results in your smile anymore. Regardless, there’s no reason to wait longer than you already have for the straight, healthy smile you want and deserve.
