Invisalign in Dallas, TX

Many people would like to straighten their teeth but feel they would be self-conscious about wearing braces. Patients in Dallas, Irving, and the surrounding communities in Texas who would like a better smile without a great deal of the hassle associated with traditional braces can visit Dr. Scott Evans to learn more about Invisalign®.

 

What is Invisalign®?

InvisalignInvisalign® is a revolutionary new way of straightening teeth without the use of metal wires or brackets. It consists of plastic trays that fit over the top of teeth to move them into their proper position. These trays are custom-fitted for each patient and can be removed when eating or brushing. During the treatment cycle, a new set of trays is worn approximately every two weeks until teeth have reached their desired position.

What are the advantages of Invisalign®?

A number of advantages to choosing Invisalign® over traditional metal braces include the following:

  • Are more comfortable to wear
  • Can eat any type of foods you like
  • Have a more natural appearance
  • Make brushing and flossing easier
  • Require fewer orthodontic appointments
  • Can often achieve straightening faster than with other orthodontic appliances

What are the disadvantages of Invisalign®?

While Invisalign® braces have many advantages, there are also a few disadvantages, including the following:

  • Usually more expensive than traditional metal braces
  • May be tempting to take them out too often
  • Can lose devices, thereby requiring replacement
  • Cannot remedy all conditions with this appliance

Who is a good candidate for Invisalign® braces?

Patients who have gaps between their teeth or have slightly crowed, crooked or misaligned teeth can be good candidates for Invisalign® braces. Patients with significant overbites or underbites are usually not good candidates for Invisalign and are better served with traditional braces.

How long does Invisalign® straightening take?

The length of time can depend on how poorly the teeth are aligned and whether or not a patient wears the devices as required. In most cases, teeth can be properly aligned in as little as 9 to 15 months.

Invisalign® can be an ideal solution for those who are concerned about how they might look when wearing metal braces. Since they are more comfortable and convenient to wear, they are an excellent choice for many people.

Straightening teeth has become easier and more convenient than ever before thanks to Invisalign®. To find out more about this procedure, patients in Dallas, Irving, and the surrounding communities in Texas can call Dr. Scott Evans at 214-506-0054.
