Do you want a straighter smile but you’d like to avoid the inconvenience of traditional metal braces? Then Invisalign® might be the right option for you. For issues ranging from overbites to crooked teeth, Invisalign® can discreetly and easily give you the straighter smile you desire. Dr. Huff proudly offers this revolutionary orthodontic system at his practice in Kerrville, TX.
What is Invisalign®?
The Invisalign® system offers a modern way to straighten your teeth that works with your lifestyle. It utilizes a series of custom-made aligners to gradually move your teeth into a new, straighter position. The aligners are trays, similar to mouthguards but much smaller, made of smooth, comfortable plastic. You receive a series of aligners at the beginning of your treatment. You’ll wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, then replace them with the next set. Each set is designed to make small changes to the position of your teeth as you progress through your treatment.
Benefits of Invisalign®
Invisalign® offers many benefits over traditional braces, which can be uncomfortable to wear and make dental care a chore. The Invisalign® system allows you to:
Discreetly and comfortably straighten your smile – Because the Invisalign® aligners are made from smooth, clear plastic, they’re nearly invisible. In fact, most people won’t even be able to tell you’re wearing them. The smooth design also makes them comfortable to wear, with no sharp wires or rough spots to hurt the inside of your mouth as is typical with traditional braces.
Easily care for your teeth – It’s difficult to properly clean your teeth with brackets and wires in the way. But with Invisalign®, you can just remove your aligners to brush and floss as normal.
Continue eating your favorite foods – Hard and sticky foods can break brackets and are off limits with braces, but just remove your Invisalign® aligners to eat and you don’t have to worry about damaging your appliances.
Minimize orthodontic treatment time – Braces can take several years to fully straighten your teeth, whereas treatment with invisalign® can usually be completed in about a year.
The Invisalign® Treatment Process
The first step toward a straighter smile with Invisalign® is your consultation with Dr. Huff. During this appointment, he will take x-rays, photos, and impressions of your teeth in order create a customized treatment plan. With this information, your series of Invisalign® aligners will be created. Once your aligners are ready, you’ll return to our office to pick them up and learn how to proceed with your treatment plan. After that, you’ll visit Dr. Huff periodically throughout your treatment to make sure everything is progressing as planned.
