Many of our Houston-area patients are in serious need of bite alignment correction but are unwilling to get traditional metal braces. Most of these concerns come from people who worry about making a poor impression in their jobs or social lives.
Fortunately, Invisalign® is an excellent alternative to metal braces that addresses the aesthetic concerns of our patients. With Invisalign aligners, you can achieve the healthy, stable bite position you need with a more comfortable, less conspicuous treatment plan.
Invisalign has the following advantages over traditional metal braces:
- It’s more comfortable. Because Invisalign aligners are made from clear plastic, there are no metal wires to poke your gums and cheeks.
- It’s more convenient. The Invisalign experience is quite simple: we custom-design a set of aligners for you. You wear each set for about two weeks, then replace them with a new set. You can easily remove aligners when you eat.
- It’s less conspicuous. Metal braces are easily spotted by colleagues and clients. By contrast, the clear Invisalign aligners are practically invisible to anyone looking at your smile.
And once you’ve finished your Invisalign treatment, lots of people are going to be looking at your beautiful, straight smile.
To find out if Invisalign is the right option to address your orthodontic needs, please contact Dr. Heather Fleschler today to schedule a consultation. We serve patients in the Houston, Texas areas of West University, Bellaire, Meyerland, and River Oaks.
