Teeth alignment using clear plastic aligners.
Invisalign has emerged as a popular dental alternative to traditional braces. It is especially a boon for adults looking to straighten their teeth without the embarrassment of wearing metal braces, which are more commonly associated with children and adolescents. Hedgcoxe Dental is a regarded Plano family dentist providing invisible aligners for tooth corrections.
Why Should You Consider Aligners?
Invisalign basically involves the use of invisible aligners custom-designed to fit you and correct the specific problem, which could be an overbite, underbite, overcrowded mouth or widely-spaced teeth. The aligners, being completely transparent, cannot be detected. This aesthetic solution is appreciated by teens and adults alike.
Hedgcoxe Dental offers Invisalign for teens who don’t want to disrupt their lifestyle or indicate that they’re undergoing dental treatment. As aligners can be easily removed, there are no restrictions with regard to diet as such. Invisalign for adults also comes with its set of benefits. Importantly, the side-effects associated with traditional braces don’t come into the picture. There is no tooth resorption (shortening), tooth decay or demineralisation to contend with. A majority of Invisalign reviews show that it is fast becoming a preferred form of treatment to correct tooth deformities. It has also been seen that Invisalign offers quicker results in comparison to traditional braces. Studies have shown that it can straighten teeth within 18 months, something traditional orthodontics takes an average of 36 months to achieve.
What Does the Treatment Involve?
Computerized planning is an important part of Invisalign treatment, allowing you to review different aspects, such as the length of treatment and projected results. When you visit our clinic, Dr. Mathew will first determine whether you are a candidate for Invisalign. If you qualify as a candidate, a bite impression of your teeth is taken, which will be used to make the aligners. You then start wearing the aligners, and visit Dr. Mathew to check your progress.
Typically, custom-created aligners are changed every two weeks, a procedure that takes very little time. You won’t experience any irritation and the aligners will move your teeth gently over time to give you a ravishing smile!
Invisalign should easily qualify if your dental insurance covers orthodontic treatment. Feel free to discuss Invisalign cost and other details with us.
