Fast becoming one of the most popular orthodontic treatment options available, Invisalign offers patients a flawless smile with none of the hassle. Thanks to advances in this method, even patients with serious alignment issues like over, under, and crossbite can achieve optimal results using the Invisalign® Clear Braces system. Rather than brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear, plastic aligners to gently shift teeth into position after about a year of treatment. Patients simply wear each set of alignment trays for about two weeks. Then, move on to the next set in the series to achieve their flawless smiles within about twelve months. Each set of alignment trays represents the positioning of the teeth one step closer to the desired end result. When worn for about two weeks, the gentle pressure from the aligners moves teeth into this new position, and patients switch to the next set in the series. Every four to eight weeks, patients will need to visit Dental Care Today of Richardson for a checkup. We’ll simply examine the smile to ensure it is progressing according to the preset treatment plan.
