What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a teeth straightening system that uses clear, removable aligners instead of fixed metal wires and brackets. The aligners are similar to mouthguards worn over your teeth. Because you can take them off anytime, you can eat whatever you want. Cleaning your mouth is easy, and there’s no risk of food getting trapped in your aligners. Unlike conventional braces, Invisalign is comfortable to wear. The aligners are made of high-grade plastic that does not hurt your gums and cheeks. You may feel pressure in your mouth when wearing a new aligner, but this is normal and should go away as you adjust to the appliance. Invisalign is all about aesthetics. You can smile and speak confidently knowing that your orthodontia is inconspicuous. Invisalign is perfect for working professionals, business executives, parents, college students, teenagers,or anyone who wants a great smile without the awkwardness of metal.

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign aligners move your teeth gradually to the ideal position. The treatment plan and the number of aligners are determined by your orthodontist based on high-quality photos and impressions of your mouth and jaw.You’ll receive a series of custom aligners during the treatment period (about 12 months on average), with each aligner to be worn every day for two weeks until your teeth are straightened. You’ll visit your dentist once in a while so he can check on your progress. Dr. Hucklebridge is one of the leading cosmetic dentists and Invisalign providers in Dallas and Plano.

Who Wears Invisalign®?

Invisalign TeenYou no longer have to straighten your teeth the old-fashioned way, with metal braces. The Invisalign Teen™ system lets you do it the modern, hygienic way. Your new smile is created with the most innovative technology – a series of clear aligners that are custom-fit to your teeth.

The first thing you should know is that an average treatment takes about a year. Plus your treatment can begin even if you don’t have all of your permanent teeth. Invisalign Teen was designed to meet your needs.

How Treatment Works

Here’s a quick look at the main steps of your treatment:

You’ll meet with a designated Invisalign Teen provider for a consultation and find out: is it for you?.

Your provider will take pictures and impressions of your teeth.

Those pictures and impressions are digitized. Then, your provider can use the 3D renderings to precisely plan your tooth movements from the beginning to the end of your treatment, in order to fix your orthodontic issue(s).
Based on the precise treatment plan, aligners will be made to custom-fit your teeth. The number of aligners changes for each person.

You’ll wear your aligners about 20 to 22 hours everyday, except to eat, brush, and floss, or go to a special event.

Approximately every two weeks, you’ll swap your old aligners for new ones. The aligners will gently and continuously move your teeth until they are in their final prescribed position, all without the usual hassle of metal braces.

Virtually invisible clear aligners

This revolutionary treatment allows adults and teens to achieve beautiful smiles discretely and comfortably. No wires, wax, and metals! Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible because they’re made of clear plastic. They’re also removable so you can eat, floss, and brush with ease.

The Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made aligners to move your teeth gradually. Each aligner is replaced every two weeks until your teeth are correctly aligned. During the treatment period, about 12 months on average, you’ll have short visits to your dentist to check your progress.

Invisalign for adults and teens

It’s never too late to get crooked teeth fixed! Students, professionals, business executives, teenagers, and anyone else who’d rather not experience the hassles and awkwardness of wearing metal braces come to Dr. Hucklebridge for Invisalign.

The clear braces allow you to improve your smile without having to put your life on hold. No one needs to know you’re having your teeth straightened. With Invisalign, it’s your smile that gets noticed, not the metal wires and brackets in your mouth. Teenagers also love that Invisalign allows them to engage in sports and other activities that they would not have been able to do with a mouth full of metal. For special occasions, important business events and the like, you can even remove the aligner for a while and just put it back on as soon as you’re ready.

Invisalign aligners are also much more comfortable to wear than conventional braces because they’re made of smooth, high-grade plastic that’s far gentler on the gums and cheeks than metal.
