Invisalign Aligners in Frisco, TX

Dental braces have reigned the field of orthodontic treatment for decades. In fact, they were pretty much the only option available to dentists for correcting tooth misalignment. Those days are no more! Invisalign clear aligners have relegated dental braces to the second position where teeth alignment options are concerned. Invisalign has become the preferred choice among most dentists and patients throughout the world.

The reasons behind the widespread popularity of Invisalign include better aesthetics, comfort, and convenience in comparison to conventional braces. Dental braces not only give a rather unseemly, and conspicuous appearance, they demand dozens of visits to the dentist to readjust the wires. Braces may also damage the soft oral tissues and pose difficulty in eating and speaking correctly.

What is the Invisalign Orthodontic System?

Invisalign is a system of removable aligners which are successively worn by teenage or adult patients for the correction of tooth crowding and misalignment. One of the reasons why patients prefer Invisalign aligners over conventional braces is that they are prepared from a clear plastic material. As a result, these aligners are virtually invisible when you wear them, and they do not affect your smile.

How Invisalign at Dental Arts of Frisco Works?

The Invisalign orthodontic system relies on wearing a set of numbered clear plastic shells. When you wear your first set of aligners, they will gently start forcing your teeth in the right direction. The aligner must be worn for at least 22 hours each day, removing it while eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth.

After about two weeks, when the first aligner has done its job, your will wear the second aligner, which continues to align your teeth. You put on the third shell after another two weeks and the journey towards achievement of a beautiful smile continues. By the time you have worn the last aligner it will have moved your misaligned teeth to the perfect position as planned by the dentist. This is the time to consolidate your achievement, and we will give you plastic retainers to wear for about six months. It is important to wear the retainers or else the teeth may move back towards their original misaligned positions.
