Houston, TX area patients come to Dr. Heather F. Fleschler to discuss ways in which they can enhance their smiles. One of the most commonly requested treatments is that of Invisalign orthodontics, which is used to reposition the teeth of the dental arch into proper alignment.
What is Invisalign?
Dr. Heather F. Fleschler of Houston, TX is committed to ensuring patients have ways to transform their smile, especially if aesthetic or alignment issues are present. With Invisalign, patients can avoid the need for traditional metal appliances when they have mild to moderate malocclusion. Invisalign trays are clear and durable. They are worn over the dental arch for two weeks at a time as patients progress through their treatment. At the end of treatment, the final results are revealed. Treatment typically takes approximately one year or less in most cases, as long as patients comply closely with their treatment from start to finish.
How can Invisalign change your smile?
Invisalign can be used to address:
- Gaps between teeth
- Crooked or misaligned teeth in the dental arch
- Poor bite alignment
- Mild to moderate malocclusion
At the same time, these trays are made with clear plastic, making them practically invisible when patients wear them during the night and day. With proper compliance, teenagers and adults can achieve the smile they desire faster than ever before with much less embarrassment!
How are Invisalign trays made?
The number of trays in a patient’s Invisalign series will vary depending on how severe their misalignment is. Dr. Heather F. Fleschler takes digital impressions of the upper and/or lower arch, which are then sent electronically to the Invisalign laboratories for the creation of trays. The trays are mailed to the dental office where patients can pick them up and speak to their dentist about how to use them. Patients will attend routine visits to monitor progress and ensure treatment is progressing as desired.
