Highland Park / University Park Invisalign Orthodontist
With Invisalign, you can have straight teeth without the hassle of braces. Invisalign allows you to discreetly straighten your teeth and even correct over and under bites. Invisalign is clinically proven to be effective and has been approved by the American Association of Orthodontists.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a series of custom-designed plastic trays that straighten your teeth over a period of 9 to 24 months. The trays are removable, allowing you to floss and brush your teeth easier than you could with metal braces. Furthermore, Invisalign usually takes less time than traditional metal braces to achieve optimal results and you’ll visit your doctor’s office less frequently. There no uncomfortable wires, broken braces, or irritation caused by sharp appliances. The benefits of Invisalign are countless!
How does Invisalign Work?
To start the Invisalign process, Dr. Ted Smith will take an impression of your teeth, as Invisalign trays are custom-fit. A series of trays and aligners will be specially created for you. Each tray is slightly different to gradually straighten your teeth. You will wear each tray for an allotted period of time, usually a couple of weeks, and then move on to the next tray. The aligners should be worn constantly and only removed to eat, drink, brush or floss. As you progress through the aligners, your teeth will get straighter and the result will be a beautiful smile with straight teeth.
