Many teenagers and adults who are unsatisfied with their crooked teeth may feel like they’ve missed the boat on making a lifelong change with the help of orthodontics. After all, the last thing they want is to struggle through years of having to wear unsightly metal braces. We’re happy to let you know that Invisalign could be the ideal solution for you! Teeth alignment doesn’t only affect the way you look – it can actually lead to negative consequences for your oral health. For instance, if your dental arches are too thin, this can lead to problems with allergies. Similarly, gum irritation, uneven wear on teeth, and painful jaw ailments can also be caused by misaligned or crooked teeth. That’s why Dr. Jason L. Montgomery wants to help you improve your smile for life with Invisalign treatment!
Invisalign can help patients overcome all sorts of issues, including wide spaces, crossbites, overbites, underbites, and teeth that are crowded. We can even use it to help you correct problems that are simply cosmetic in nature! Contact our Plano dental office today to learn more about how Invisalign can help you achieve a smile that’s both healthy and beautifully straight.
Invisalign consists of series of customized aligners. Each aligner represents a different stage of your progress as your teeth slowly move into their ideal alignment – all without the use of brackets or metal wires. Better yet, the trays won’t rub on your cheeks or gums, and they’re virtually unnoticeable. You can even remove them to eat, drink, or practice oral hygiene.
At your first appointment with Plano dentist Dr. Montgomery, we will take precise impressions so that we can ensure the best possible fit for your aligners. Then, the Invisalign lab will send your series of trays. You’ll switch your aligner every two weeks and will attend brief appointments with Dr. Montgomery every four to six weeks so that we can ensure you’re making process. Invisalign treatment, on average, lasts between 9-15 months.
Invisalign is designed to affect your life as little as possible! Patients only tend to experience a mild sense of pressure on their teeth, and your tongue will quickly get used to the feel of the aligners. Better yet, you don’t have to make any changes to your diet or oral hygiene routine.
