Smiling-Young-Adults-300x200There are many reasons someone might want to turn to a dentist or orthodontist to straighten out their teeth. Some adults wish they would have had braces as children, and others had them, but found that their teeth shifted again over time. No matter the reason for chasing the dream of a straight smile, these days there are many more options than just the traditional bracket-and-wire variety of braces. Your Katy, TX dentist, Dr. Deborah Gennero, explains a form of virtually invisible customized teeth straighteners called Invisalign.

How Do Invisible Braces Work?

When you opt for Invisalign, Dr. Gennero will consult with you, and take impressions of your teeth that will be sent to a lab. With 3D computer imaging, you’ll be able to get an exciting look at the finished product of your future straightened teeth before treatment even begins. A series of customized clear plastic aligners will be fashioned specifically for your orthodontic needs. Most patients will reach their desired results in about a year. Every two or three weeks, you’ll switch to the next set of clear plastic aligner in the series. Dr. Gennero will want to see you every 6 weeks or so to make sure that everything is going smoothly with your invisible braces.

Who Are the Right Patients for Invisalign?

Invisalign is a terrific choice for issues with over-crowding, poor spacing, over-bites, cross-bites, and under-bites. Were you one of those childhood bracket-and-wire braces wearers that neglected to wear your retainer? Don’t feel ashamed. This is a common problem, and falls right in line with the way customized aligners work. Many patients find their favorite benefit of invisible braces is the fact that you can’t see them. You can take them out when you eat and brush your teeth, so struggling with picking food out of your braces and not being able to floss properly will not be concerns.

shutterstock_45879607-300x200Patients who want a straighter smiles have probably looked into a clear braces alternative to traditional braces, such as Invisalign or ClearCorrect. If you’ve been looking for professional advice about either product, this article may help. Dr. Deborah Gennero, your Houston, TX dentist gives her patients a few facts about clear braces.

Some Quick Trivia about Clear Braces

  • No metal required. Almost everyone knows that with traditional braces comes metal brackets and wires. While many patients seek the metal-based route, many adults would rather a more subtle method to align their smiles. With clear braces, your orthodontic treatment goes practically undetected.
  • Completely removable. When a patient commits to metal braces, those components stay in place for at least a year—in more extreme cases, up-to three years. Having the metal brackets in place makes eating and brushing quite difficult. However, with clear braces, you can remove the aligners whenever you wish. Eating and brushing is effortless since you don’t wear aligners for those activities.
  • Reduced irritation. No metal means minimal irritation. When patients first receive metal braces, the components tend to cut and scratch their gums, cheeks, and tongue quite often. Yet, the clear aligners don’t pose that problem.
  • Less treatment time. Depending upon the patient, your Houston, TX dentist estimates that a clear braces treatment can take anywhere from nine to 15 months to complete. Furthermore, you’ll only require 18 to 30 aligners in that time.
  • See your smile before beginning treatment. Digital imagining takes a key role in creation the of your clear braces; since patients need to undergo a number of fittings and measurements before they receive their first set of aligners, a computer houses the final appearance of your teeth. This way, patients can view their smiles even before the treatment starts.
