Many people dream of having a straight smile, but don’t want to deal with traditional braces. Our San Antonio dentists are proud to be able to offer patients a different solution, Invisalign®.
Invisalign® is the invisible way to straighten, or align your teeth with clear aligners that are customized to fit and to progressively move your teeth—without metal wires or brackets. There are many benefits compared to braces, such as:
If you want straighter teeth and are ready for a solution other than traditional braces, schedule an appointment. Our San Antonio dentists are a preferred provider of Invisalign* and are trained to help you understand if Invisalign® is the best choice for achieving the smile of your dreams.
Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, and look similar to teeth-whitening trays. They are made of a thermoplastic material uniquely developed for the treatment plan.
Through the thermoplastic design, the aligners move and align the teeth through the correct placement of controlled force. The main difference is that these manage the force as well as the timing of the force. At each stage only certain teeth are allowed to move.
The treatment consists of a series of aligners that will be worn approximately 22 hours a day and changed every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured with specific and exact calculations using computerized technology.
This custom made treatment will allow you to transform your smile and appearance without interfering with your day-to-day life. The treatment offered at our San Antonio dental office is comfortable to wear and due to its invisible nature, people notice you- not your braces.
The Invisalign procedure is quite simple. During your consultation appointment X-rays, photos and digital impressions are taken to help the dentist plan a course of treatment. These digital impressions are sent to the company’s headquarters where they are used to create an accurate, 3-D model of the teeth. ClinCheck software is then used to simulate the movement of teeth during treatment to create a set of aligners that match your needs.
Invisalign is versatile and can help correct a broad range of dental and orthodontic issues, such as crowding, spacing, overbites, or misaligned teeth. Crowding and maligned teeth can lead to difficulty in cleaning this can lead to gum and periodontal problems.
