If you’re self-conscious about your smile, you’re not alone. In fact, many Carrollton, TX, patients turn to Dr. Adnan Saleem of Hebron Smiles to help improving the appearance of their smile. From whitening services to veneers to orthodontics, Dr. Saleem can help patients achieve a healthy smile that they’re proud to show off.
Patients who are struggling with misalignment often want to discuss their teeth straightening options. Many believe that they’re destined for traditional braces with brackets and wires. Instead, Dr. Saleem offers an alternative with Invisalign.
The field of orthodontics has advanced a great deal in recent years. With Invisalign, dentists can help patients straighten their teeth, address bite problems, and boost the appearance of their smile while using a nearly invisible treatment.
Invisalign uses a set of clear alignment trays. The patient wears each tray for two weeks before discarding it and moving onto the next. Over the course of treatment, the patient will visit the dentist periodically to ensure that the treatment is progressing as planned.
The treatment typically takes less than two years. However, it’s important that patients ensure compliance. While the trays can be taken out for eating and brushing, they should be worn at all other times of the day to achieve the results you want.
Invisalign offers several advantages over other orthodontic treatments, including:
Invisalign is an effective solution for most patients with minor misalignment. Some Invisalign patients are adults who had braces as a child or teenager. Teeth often shift out of place if retainers aren’t continually used. In many instances, Invisalign patients have not previously undergone orthodontic treatment.
