Adults discover options for clear braces on teeth near Carrollton, TX
By Dr. Adnan Saleem
Your smile affects your confidence level. As an adult, you may have considered straightening your teeth but have been turned off by the thought of metal brackets. For patients in Carrollton, TX, Dr. Saleem and the team at Hebron Smiles offers Invisalign as an option to enhance your smile without noticeable braces on your teeth. Aligner trays have become popular orthodontic treatments among adults.
Patients considering orthodontics should have a consultation with their dentist. An examination is necessary to determine whether or not you are a qualified candidate for aligner trays. Invisalign uses clear plastic trays to correct mild to moderate orthodontic needs.
Key points about Invisalign
If you are a qualified candidate for aligner trays, there are key points to remember to ensure optimal success.
Custom trays - Your aligner trays are created from impressions of your teeth.
Comfortable - The trays fit snugly around your teeth to ensure they do not move or slip.
Gentle pressure - The trays gently move the teeth into proper alignment. No need to worry about discomfort after tightening wires
Continuous movement - Invisalign relies on differing pressure placement through the use of a series of trays. Each set of trays is discarded after a couple weeks so a new set of trays is worn. The placement of pressure changes with each set of trays to ensure continued progress.
Removable - The trays may be taken out for meals and oral care.
Invisible - The trays are made of clear, BPA free plastic.
Variable treatment time - Treatment time varies for each patient with the average patient achieving satisfactory results in 12 months.
Patient controlled success
Invisalign trays can be removed meaning patients control their own success. Wearing your trays for the suggested amount of time each day improves your outcome. Following your dentist’s instructions also lessens the chance of future orthodontic work.
