Invisalign Flower Mound, TX

Many patients want a straighter smile but are hesitant about traditional metal braces. Invisalign offers a less noticeable option for teens and adults to comfortably straighten their smile. As a top Invisalign partner, we offer Invisalign treatment as one of our cosmetic dentistry services.

Getting Invisalign in Flower Mound, TX

Before we proceed with any cosmetic treatment, we have a consultation. We want to ensure that Invisalign is the best choice for you. We’ll discuss your cosmetic goals and medical history and perform a thorough oral examination. Invisalign is best for mild to moderate orthodontic concerns. We may refer you to a local orthodontist if you have more severe orthodontic issues.

When we move forward with Invisalign, we’ll take impressions of your teeth. We send these to a lab so that they can custom-make your aligner sets. You’ll change these once every two weeks or so to slowly shift your teeth into place. Each set is a little bit different. You’ll feel soreness and discomfort for the first couple of days after you change your aligners. This is normal, as your teeth are shifting.

Periodically, we’ll bring you into the office to ensure your treatment progresses properly. You must wear the aligners for at least 20-22 hours daily for treatment to go as planned. If you wear the aligners less frequently, your teeth won’t move to the proper position as fast. You can take the aligners out when you eat, drink beverages besides water, and perform your oral healthcare routine.



Why Choose Invisalign?

The primary reason patients choose Invisalign is because it’s discreet. The clear plastic aligners are transparent and practically invisible on your teeth unless someone looks specifically for them. It allows patients to stay confident in their smiles instead of being insecure about brackets and wires on their teeth.

Since the aligners are plastic, they’re much more comfortable in your mouth. The smooth plastic is smooth and there aren’t parts that can pinch or rub your soft tissue. Labs design them to fit extremely close to your teeth so they don’t pinch anything. They’re removable, so you can eat all the foods you want and not have to worry about device damage.

It’s easier to maintain good oral health with aligners that you can take off. You don’t have to learn how to brush and floss around the braces on your teeth and can take care of them like you normally would. Straightening your teeth also prevents oral health concerns that come with an uneven bite. This includes TMJ disorders, tooth decay, and gum disease.

Traditional braces need to be tightened by an orthodontist every month to ensure that the treatment proceeds correctly. With Invisalign, you just need to change your aligners sets at home. You don’t require as many visits to the office. Treatment is also often shorter than with traditional braces. The average treatment time is 12-18 months, compared with multiple years for braces.

The HealthyStart System

HealthyStart allows us to treat orthodontic concerns while children’s mouths are still developing. This prevents the need for braces or other orthothontic methods in the future. They’re soft, removable devices that use the natural movements of teeth erupting and oral development. They ensure that your jaws develop correctly so that they have the proper amount of room for adult teeth as they come in.
