A beautiful smile is powerful. In fact, it can change your life. Having a smile you are proud of allows you to exude confidence and beauty and has others perceive you as healthy and successful.

If you’ve been reluctant to undergo traditional braces to correct your crooked teeth, Invisalign can straighten your smile without brackets and wires. Call us at (972) 388-3320 to learn how Invisalign treatment can improve your smile and your life.
How Invisalign Works
Invisalign straightens teeth and corrects bite problems with a series of clear aligner trays. The trays are individually designed to fit your mouth and over time gently shift your teeth into proper position. The trays are made from clear, comfortable plastic and are virtually invisible so you can straighten your teeth discreetly. Invisalign treatment can be completed faster than traditional braces, with most people finishing within 12-18 months.
How Invisalign improves your health
The health benefits of Invisalign include correcting common issues such as:
Overcrowding – If left untreated, this can lead to an increased risk of decay or gum disease Overbite – If let untreated this can put excessive wear on bottom teeth and lead to TMJ Underbite – If left untreated this can lead to uneven wear on teeth or jaw soreness Crossbite – If left untreated this can cause abnormal wear or deterioration of the jawbone Open bite – If left untreated, this can cause difficulty chewing, TMJ, or speech impediments
How Invisalign can change your life and your smile
When patients first learn about Invisalign treatment, they are typically very excited about all of the ways this treatment will improve their lives. Not only does Invisalign make the smile look better, but it also improves the health and function of the smile. Here are some of the many benefits of Invisalign.
Invisalign treatment is discreet: Patients love Invisalign because the clear trays make the treatment discreet. The trays are custom fabricated from digital imaging of the patients’ smile for a fit that isn’t bulky or obtrusive. Trays will gradually move teeth into proper alignment without having to wear metal brackets and wires.
Invisalign treatment improves your health: While many individuals seek orthodontic treatment to improve the appearance of the smile, having straight teeth also improves oral health. Crooked teeth can lead to several different oral health issues. When teeth are crooked or overlapping food particles can become trapped and increase the risk of decay or gum disease. When teeth are straight, it is easier to practice adequate oral hygiene to keep the smile healthier. Additionally, because Invisalign trays are removable, keeping teeth clean during treatment is easier than it is with traditional braces.
Invisalign treatment is comfortable: The smooth, BPA-free plastic trays used during Invisalign treatment eliminate the discomfort that is often experienced from metal brackets and wires irritating the inside of the mouth. Trays are swapped out at home every two weeks for the next set of trays in the series rather than having to come into the office to have wires tightened.
Invisalign treatment improves self-confidence: Having crooked teeth can cause individuals to feel self-conscious about their smiles. This embarrassment can impact quality of life in both professional and social settings. When individuals opt for Invisalign treatment, they can feel confident during treatment due to the discrete nature of the trays and ultimately feel their best once they achieve a straighter, healthier smile.
Invisalign treatment produces fast results. The success of Invisalign relies on individuals complying with the guidelines for treatment, including wearing the trays for at least 22 hour per day. With compliance, treatment takes, on average, one year for most patients.
