Discreet clear aligners are a popular orthodontic treatment made of invisible plastic. Unlike traditional brackets, Invisalign is not cemented in place. Instead, the removable trays are taken out for brushing, flossing, and eating.
If you wish, you also have the option to remove your aligner for social events. But take heed, it is important to resist the urge to take the tray out more often than you should. Here are some of the reasons why Invisalign is so popular at DFW Crown Dental:
Invisalign technology has only gotten better with time. Discreet orthodontic treatment can now correct bite issues that once would have been too complicated for this method.
Clear aligners function much like traditional braces: by applying a steady, controlled force to teeth to shift them into the desired position. But Invisalign is not made of unsightly metal; instead, aligner trays are made of flexible, invisible plastic.
Your Dallas dentists will use computer software to create a plan to shift your teeth into optimal alignment. This process will be broken down into treatment stages. For each 2-week interval, you will receive two custom aligners, one for the upper teeth and one for the lower set. The first set will be worn for two weeks, about 20 hours per day. Then, you will graduate to the next set and repeat the process until your teeth are correctly aligned.
