The Breakthrough of Clear Aligners
Invisalign trays are becoming popular for tooth alignment for young and old alike. Here are some important facts the team at Bent Tree Dental wants you to know.
What are Clear Aligners?
Clear aligners are medical-grade plastic custom-molded to fit each patient’s unique mouth. The trays are thin and transparent, making them almost invisible to the naked eye and allowing for more natural-looking results.
Patients wear each aligner for about two weeks, continuously day and night, and then switch to the next in the series. Over time, teeth gradually shift to the desired position.
To ensure the optimal treatment outcome, periodic visits to Dr. Miller in Dallas, Texas, are necessary to check your treatment progress.
The Invisalign Difference
While metal braces can be uncomfortable and unsightly, clear aligners offer an alternative that is more aesthetically pleasing, making them perfect for teenagers or professionals concerned about their public image.
There are other benefits Dr. Miller and his team see from patients who choose Invisalign, including:
Clear Aligners are More Comfortable
Patients at Bent Tree Dental can typically get the desired results without the uncomfortable metal brackets and wires standard with traditional orthodontic treatment. This can be particularly important for patients with sensory difficulties, like Autism or ADHD, who are especially vulnerable to discomfort.
Convenience and Flexibility
Invisalign wearers can take them off when eating and drinking, allowing a greater range of food choices than traditional braces. This feature makes clear aligners easier to clean and maintain oral hygiene than wire braces, where food may get stuck between the wires.
To make clear aligners even more effective, Dr. Miller’s Invisalign users can remove the aligners to brush and floss their teeth, reducing the amount of plaque and bacteria that may accumulate in the mouth with traditional braces.
At Bent Tree Dental, every Invisalign treatment is customized to the patient, ensuring a better result in the shortest time, typically 12-18 months. With clear aligners, you can receive the same quality of treatment in fractions of the time of traditional braces.
With metal appliances, you will have to make many visits to your dentist for frequent adjustments. However, with clear aligners, you may only have to visit Dr. Rick Miller every other month, depending on your circumstances.
The Price is Right
Clear aligners can sometimes be more affordable than regular braces depending on your treatment plan. During your initial consultation at Bent Tree Dental, the team will review payment plans, insurance coverage, and financing options to make the process as smooth and stress-free as possible.
The Invisalign Journey
When you come in for an initial consultation to determine if clear aligners are right for you, Dr. Rick Miller will devise a personalized care plan to get you started with Invisalign. Your journey will include:
- A comprehensive evaluation of your dental needs
- A 3D scan of your mouth to create custom-made aligners that make incremental changes to your teeth
- Regular appointments with Dr. Miller to monitor progress and make modifications as needed
All that’s required of you is wearing the aligners for 20-22 hours a day, only taking them out for meals and teeth brushing. And, of course, our team will ask you to stay committed to the journey; your reward will be a healthier, beautifully aligned smile!
