Can adults benefit from Invisalign clear teeth aligners?

When it comes to your smile, straight is a feature most people want. At Trusted Dental Care, we see patients with misaligned, crowded, or crooked teeth that they want to straighten in an undetectable way. Dr. Fesaha Gebrehiwot uses Invisalign® to improve how his patients’ smiles look. Invisalign is an orthodontic option that our adult and teenage patients use to realign their teeth with clear teeth aligners. When you’re unhappy with how your smile looks, our Invisalign dentist can determine if you’re a candidate for this cosmetic dentistry treatment during a one-on-one consultation.

Am I a candidate for adult braces?

There are many factors to consider to determine if you’re a candidate for this treatment. Invisalign treatment is ideal for teens and adults who want straighter teeth without the appearance of metal wires and braces, associated with traditional braces. Clear teeth aligners are worn at least 20 hours a day to gradually and gently shift the teeth into their desired position. During a comprehensive dental exam, Dr. G. will look at the positioning of your teeth to determine if Invisalign will work best for straightening your teeth.

Ideal candidates for Invisalign may include those with:

  • Gaps

  • Bite problems

  • Overcrowding, overlapping, or crooked teeth

Invisalign is a great cosmetic dentistry option for those who don’t want to undergo lengthy orthodontic treatments. This clear braces solution offers a faster path to a straight smile.

How Invisalign works

Invisalign is used to fix many orthodontic concerns. Dr. G. uses digital impressions of your teeth to create a custom treatment plan. These impressions are sent to an Invisalign lab where your series of clear teeth aligners are custom made. When they’re ready, you will come back to our Wylie, TX office and will try on your first set of trays. Our professional team will offer you thorough instructions on how to use your clear teeth aligners. Your clear aligners can be removed only for cleaning and eating. Every week or two, you will move on to the next set of clear teeth aligners. A follow-up visit every four to six weeks at Trusted Dental Care will track your progress.

How long will I wear Invisalign?

Generally, Invisalign treatment last from six to 18 months. The exact time it will take to proceed through your custom treatment process will depend on the original position of your teeth and your personal goals. Most patients will undergo about a year of Invisalign clear teeth aligners.

Benefits of choosing Invisalign

At Trusted Dental Care, Dr. G. is proud to bring his patients in Wylie, TX the benefits of Invisalign. Some benefits of choosing Invisalign include:

  1. Comfort: Some of our patients rave about how comfortable it is to wear clear teeth aligners throughout the day. The plastic material is made for each patient to conform to their teeth. Each tray is secured with resin buttons that are bonded to certain teeth within the arches to allow for a comfortable fit.

  2. Undetectable: Clear teeth aligners are less noticeable than metal wires or braces used with traditional braces.

  3. Improved oral health: Because these clear teeth aligners can be removed to eat, drink, brush, and to floss, patients see improved oral health. Removing these trays helps to reduce plaque buildup. This allows Invisalign patients to keep their teeth and gums cleaner, which lowers the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

  4. Faster treatment time: Invisalign treatment takes less time than traditional metal braces. Depending on the position of your existing teeth, Invisalign treatment can take from six to 18 months while traditional braces can take years to complete.
