Invisalign® Treatment in Carrollton, TX
In the not too distant past, metal braces were very noticeable, uncomfortable and embarrassing to wearers, especially if your school mates liked to dish out unflattering terms about someone’s “metal mouth”. Flash-forward to today, and new orthodontia appliances like Invisalign have become popular alternatives to fixed metal braces.
The Invisalign products we use at Carrollton Smiles involve the wearing of a clear, removable tray, or trays, crafted from comfortable plastic that’s worn over your teeth during the day and while sleeping. Nearly unnoticeable to others, Invisalign has become a welcomed introduction for teeth straightening for Dr. Bhandaru’s patients with busy lifestyles, including teenagers, in-lieu-of wearing traditional metal braces.
Why Should I Choose Invisalign?
For starters, Invisalign aligners, or “trays”, are almost invisible to others, and removable when brushing your teeth or eating. It’s been our experience that the trays are also very comfortable to wear, and easy to maintain. But Invisalign isn’t for everyone, as metal braces still perform best for people with more complicated teeth and bite misalignments. Overall, these are some of the reasons why our patients choose to wear Invisalign products to restore their natural smiles:
No eating discomfort due to removable tray feature
Gently realigns your teeth where they need to be
Can brush and floss your teeth completely when the trays are removed
Appliance is easy to care for
Smooth plastic used in trays is very comfortable and doesn’t rub against gums and cheeks
Improves a wearer’s self-confidence because of “invisibility” factor
Invisalign is more affordable and cost-effective than they thought!
How do I Get Started Wearing Invisalign?
Plan on wearing Invisalign aligners for 6 to 18 months, which will depend on your level of compliance and the initial condition of your teeth and mouth. To customize your Invisalign trays, Dr. Bhandaru will first conduct a thorough mouth examination to determine if the appliance is right for you based on your misalignment. If you’re a candidate, our staff will then take X-rays, pictures and dental impressions to create a precise 3-D image of your teeth and mouth. That information is sent to our lab, and individualized Invisalign trays created within a few business days. We will call you when they’re ready, and upon pick-up provide you with detailed wear and care instructions. When your Invisalign treatment is finished, you’ll have a new smile to enjoy and share with others for years to come!
