Imagine you’ve been asked what makes a smile “perfect.” What would your answer be? Precisely shaped front teeth? A brilliant, whiter smile? What about alignment? If you are unhappy with the alignment of your smile but dread the idea of speaking to an orthodontist about traditional metal and bracket wire braces, we have news for you: that’s not the only way to straighten the smile! With Dr. Heather F. Fleschler of the Houston, TX area, patients can realign their teeth in a more discreet, comfortable manner using Invisalign.
How Invisalign works
Dr. Heather F. Fleschler describes Invisalign as “aligner tray therapy.” This is because the treatment uses aligner trays that are worn throughout the process to gently reposition the teeth. Each patient undergoes a series of digital impressions at the dental office to get the imaging of the natural teeth as they currently are. Then, the team at Invisalign laboratories will create the final result and fabricate a series of trays to get the patient to the new positioning. The amount of trays in a patient’s series will depends on the severity of misalignment. Each tray is worn for two weeks before patients progress onto the next set of trays in their series. By the end of treatment, the patient will have a beautifully aligned smile—without ever needing brackets and wires glued onto the teeth!
