Adults and teens who desire straighter teeth and a beautiful smile have historically turned to metal braces, but more and more patients are choosing Invisalign for its convenience, comfort, and virtual invisibility. But is Invisalign as effective? If you’re ready to learn to discover the confidence that comes with a straight set of teeth, please contact Austin’s Cedar Park Premier Dentistry today at 512-782-0821 to schedule an appointment with our Invisalign dentist.
Invisalign works best for mild to moderate tooth alignment issues. Patients who suffer from extreme crowding or other complex alignment problems may be better candidates for traditional braces. And because Invisalign straighteners are removable, patients need to exercise proper discipline to wear the devices for at least 22 hours per day. Individuals who might struggle to maintain this schedule may prefer braces.
For patients who are willing to maintain their treatment schedules and whose tooth alignment issues are not severe, Invisalign is an excellent option that works just as well as traditional braces. Each straightener is worn for about two weeks before moving on to the next one in the series, and Invisalign treatment takes about a year in most cases. And because there are no wires or monthly adjustments, Invisalign may cause less irritation to gum tissue than metal braces.
Invisalign is a proven treatment for overbite, underbite, crossbite, crowded teeth, gaps, and other alignment issues. Please contact Cedar Park Premier Dentistry today at 512-782-0821 to schedule an appointment with our Austin Invisalign dentist.
