Invisalign (Clear Aligners)
For years, traditional metal braces were the only way to straighten misaligned teeth. While they gave promising results, they were also uncomfortable and unflattering for most individuals. Fortunately, Invisalign® can provide those same results without the metal, wires, and food restrictions.
La Cantera Dental Group offers this incredible orthodontic treatment in San Antonio for people who want to straighten their teeth quickly and discreetly.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign provides an inconspicuous and removable alternative to traditional braces. These clear aligners are made of a flexible plastic material and designed to gradually shift your teeth into perfect alignment. The clear coverings make them much less noticeable, and patients are free to take them out to eat or clean their teeth.
Common Dental Issues Corrected by Invisalign
Invisalign can correct several mild to moderate alignment issues with your teeth. You might be a good candidate for this treatment if you have any of the following:
- Crowded teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Open bite
What to Expect During Treatment
To ensure you get your desired results, you must wear your aligners for at least 22 hours each day. You must remove them when you eat, drink, or clean your teeth. You will get a new set of aligners every two weeks as your teeth begin to shift.
You’ll also want to take good care of your Invisalign trays to ensure they work properly. That means cleaning them often and storing them in their case when they’re not in your mouth.
