Invisalign® Clear Braces in Harker Heights
In recent years, orthodontic treatments have shifted from being viewed as a purely cosmetic solution to being considered necessary to promote overall oral health. However, not every patient has the time to commit to traditional orthodontic solutions, and many more would prefer not to showcase a mouthful of metal for several years. Whether you're concerned about your professional image or the amount of time you have to devote to orthodontic visits, Invisalign clear braces may be a better solution to correct your smile alignment. Invisalign effectively straightens crooked teeth and corrects a variety of bite alignment concerns including over, under, and crossbite.
Invisalign - A Modern Approach to Straightening Teeth
The Invisalign orthodontic system is a comfortable, less time consuming orthodontic treatment method that’s ideal for busy schedules and business professionals. The system uses a series of clear, plastic alignment trays to gently shift teeth into their idea alignment. Each set of alignment trays represents one step closer to patients’ proper alignment, and they are worn for about two weeks. At the end of the two weeks, patients exchange their current set for the next in the series.
Because Invisalign aligners are removable, there’s no need to change diet and oral hygiene routines. Simply remove alignment trays during meals and while brushing and flossing. Patients need to visit our Harker Heights practice once every six weeks or so to ensure their teeth are aligning properly. These appointments are shorter and less frequent than those required for traditional bracket and wire braces saving patients time.
