While most people love the straight smile they get from braces, they don’t love spending months with a mouth full of metal wires and brackets. With Invisalign in The Woodlands, you get the same beautiful results – but without the metal. Instead of wires, you’ll wear clear plastic aligners that fit snugly over your teeth. They are so unobtrusive, most people probably won’t even realize you have them!Dr Burgess on Invisalign Read Transcript
In our office, we provide and offer Invisalign as a treatment option for orthodontically moving your teeth. There's traditional fixed braces and wires and brackets, and then there's clear aligner technology called Invisalign. I've done hundreds of cases of fixed brackets over the years, and I've focused my treatment of orthodontics in my practice on Invisalign. Most people will wear the aligners. It’s easier to have a life with it, you can clean your teeth, and we can get predictable results for almost all cases with Invisalign. It straightens your teeth without the fuss of fixed wires and brackets. We can provide that service to you with predictability and keep you retained there for life.
Their nearly invisible appearance is a great benefit, but it’s not the only one. Invisalign aligners are also:
- Comfortable – With no metal brackets and wires to rub against your gums and cheeks, your aligners are more comfortable than braces.
- Convenient – You can remove aligners for meals, so you’ll be able to eat whatever you’d like. No struggling to remove food from braces! It makes oral hygiene easier too.
- Fast – While individual treatment times will vary, the average Invisalign treatment time is just 12 months. That’s less time than most people spend in braces.
- Predictable – We use software to create your Invisalign treatment plan, so your results are predictable. With our digital scanner, we can even show you what your new smile will look like.
If you want a straight smile without wires, call Smiles by Burgess at 281-720-3163 today.
Invisalign Treatment Is Easy & Convenient
One of our dentists makes impressions of your teeth with our digital scanner, then uses those images and other measurements to create a treatment plan for you. We also give you a digital preview of your new smile. We send the information to a special lab that makes your Invisalign aligners. When the aligners arrive, we’ll check the first one for fit and make sure you understand your treatment plan.
You wear each aligner about two weeks, then move to the next one in the series. You’ll return to our office periodically so we can check your progress – but unlike braces, no uncomfortable adjustments are needed. In about 12 months (for most people), you’ll have a straight smile! We also provide retainers, which you wear to keep your teeth in their new position.
You may also want to consider some of our other cosmetic dentistry procedures, like teeth whitening or dental veneers, to enhance your newly straightened smile.
