Are you one of those people who have been putting off getting braces because you’re hesitant to walk around with a mouthful of metal and wires for the next few years? Well you don’t have to feel that way anymore! Invisalign clear braces are a method for teeth straightening for adults, and you can see our Houston, TX. cosmetic dentists to determine if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign.

A great number of people are born with crooked, misaligned teeth. There are some lucky individuals that are born with straight teeth, but as they age, their teeth can become crooked or misaligned, too. This can happen for a number of reasons, including natural movements of your teeth, wisdom teeth causing other teeth to shift, or tooth loss.

Why are crooked teeth a problem?

Whether you are born with crooked teeth, or your teeth become misaligned with age, many people agree that crooked teeth are unattractive. However, not only are they unattractive, but crooked or misaligned teeth can lead to other problems as well, such as:

  • Difficulty eating and chewing food
  • Gaps between your teeth that are unattractive
  • Tooth decay
  • Difficulty cleaning between your teeth (which can lead to tooth decay and potentially periodontal or gum disease)
  • Painful biting and chewing (which can lead to TMJ joint disease of the jaw bone)

So when you opt to straighten your teeth as an adult or a teenager, you will not only be left with straight, gorgeous teeth, but you’ll be lessening your chances of experiencing the dental problems just mentioned. Most of all, your self-confidence and self-esteem will catapult once you experience the amazing benefits of an incredible Invisalign smile!

Invisalign as “instant orthodontics”

Invisalign could be the perfect solution if you’re a good candidate. Invisalign is becoming extremely popular nowadays for adult orthodontics because of the amazing results it produces.

  • Adults love Invisalign because of the near-invisible aligners—no one can even notice they’re wearing them, and they don’t have to feel embarrassed!
  • Actually, Invisalign is commonly referred to as “instant orthodontics” for adults because of how fast you can see the results.
  • This straight teeth solution makes it easy for adults to progress with their treatment because our Houston cosmetic dentists only require in-office appointments approximately once every 6 months. That’s fewer trips to the office compared to more frequent office visits for traditional braces.
  • With Invisalign, you continue with the next aligner in your system in the comfort of your own home, instead of in-office adjustment appointments required for traditional braces.

Invisalign is great for advanced cases

Our cosmetic dentists have several years of experience using Invisalign to treat the most advanced cases.
