At Bridge City Braces, we are passionate about crafting smiles that inspire confidence in patients of all ages. Invisalign is an excellent corrective treatment option for our adult patients who want a healthier smile with a more discreet appliance. These clear aligners are virtually invisible and highly effective, so you can work toward the smile you’ve always wanted without any metal brackets and wires.
Should I Get Invisalign As An Adult?
Invisalign is a revolutionary treatment that is attracting more patients than ever because of its flexibility, discreet appearance, comfort, efficiency, and more. While many people are aware of the aesthetic benefits of straighter teeth, you may not realize that orthodontics can play a crucial role in improving your oral and overall health. Adults often seek out corrective treatment because they have a new or untreated orthodontic issue that negatively impacts their oral health. Our team works to correct these issues so that our patients can enjoy a fully functional smile that doesn’t cause discomfort while eating, biting, or speaking.
These clear aligners can tackle all orthodontic issues from minor to complex, all while being virtually invisible. The aligners are printed in a thermoplastic that was created with patient comfort in mind so that they can fit snugly over your teeth without irritating your gums and soft tissue. This material also makes it easy to remove your aligners to eat, drink, and more. You have complete freedom in this treatment, so you don’t have to make any drastic changes to your lifestyle to begin working toward a dazzling smile.
We understand that your schedule is filled with important events, and we don’t want to be an unnecessary errand on your calendar. With Invisalign, you benefit from fewer and shorter appointments so that you can have a relaxing but efficient treatment experience.
How Will You Start My Treatment Plan?
Every orthodontic patient at our office begins their journey with a free consult that we use to get to know their needs and expectations for treatment. Once we decide that Invisalign is the right appliance for you, we will use a digital scanner and take pictures of your mouth from every angle. These pictures will allow us to construct a 3D model representing your current smile. From there, we can alter this model to show you what your teeth will look like once you’ve completed treatment. We will invite you to give your honest feedback so we can incorporate it into your treatment and create a plan that is perfect for you.
After we decide on the results and our doctor has created a step-by-step plan for your treatment, we will again use the digital model to print a set of clear aligners that fit snugly over your smile. Every two weeks until the end of treatment, we will give you a new set of aligners that have been altered to move your teeth closer to a happier and healthier smile.
How Long Will My Treatment Last?
We craft treatment plans that are entirely customized to each of our patients, so the timelines tend to vary. If you have more extensive orthodontic issues, you may need to stay in your aligners for longer. Although every person’s treatment is unique, most patients receive their final set of aligners within one to two years.
How Much Will My Invisalign Clear Aligners Cost?
Invisalign clear aligners are an investment into a lifetime of healthier and more dazzling smiles. We want each of our patients to be able to experience this life-changing treatment, and our team works diligently to make our quality care and services affordable for everyone. In pursuit of this goal, we’ve created various flexible financing plans that can be customized to suit your needs.
How Do I Clean My Invisalign?
It’s simple to keep your Invisalign clean and your mouth healthy during treatment. You need to maintain your current oral health routine and add one extra step. After you finish brushing and flossing your teeth, take your toothbrush and some warm water and gently scrub both the inside and outside of your aligners. This way, you can eliminate any harmful bacteria or food debris that would otherwise sit on your teeth and cause further issues.
