If you wish your teeth were straight but don’t want to spend years wearing unsightly and uncomfortable metal braces, Invisalign in Plano gives you a painless, invisible alternative. No metal mouth or orthodontist required!Dr. Barfield on Invisalign at 1st in Smiles in Plano, TX Read Transcript
Invisalign is an orthodontic procedure where we make study models of somebody’s teeth and from those models we make these clear trays to fit over somebody’s teeth and every three weeks they come in and get a new set of trays and we slowly move their teeth over a period of time until we get the desired result that we are looking for. And we can straighten teeth without the banded brackets and the metal wires.
Compared to braces, Invisalign treatment is:
- Nearly Invisible – You’ll wear a series of clear, nearly invisible aligners to straighten your teeth. Adults especially love their low profile; who wants to wear wire braces at work or in social settings?
- Customized – We use impressions of your teeth and special software to design a 3D model that’s used to create your aligners. We can even give you a sneak peek at what your teeth will look after the procedure and tell you about how long your treatment will take!
- Comfortable – There’s no reason to be in pain from metal wires scratching the inside of your mouth and your cheeks. Your smooth plastic aligners are comfortable to wear.
- Convenient – Unlike braces, you can remove your clear aligners to eat and for oral hygiene. You can potentially save hours a week brushing your teeth, and you can eat whatever you want.
Not all dentists offer Invisalign technology to straighten teeth, but Dr. Rick Barfield has used it to help countless patients get straighter smiles quickly and painlessly. The best way to see if you’re a candidate for Invisalign aligners is a free consultation with Dr. Barfield. To schedule one, call 972-905-9266 today.
Invisalign Treatment Is Faster & Easier on Teeth Than Braces
Invisalign treatment for adults is usually just 12 months long – about half the time of traditional wire braces. Your visits for adjustments are also less frequent than those required for wearing braces, making Invisalign aligners especially convenient for patients with busy schedules.
Following treatment, you’ll have no ugly stains or discoloration on your teeth, a common problem when wire braces are removed. Since it’s easier to clean teeth with Invisalign aligners, you’ll also be less susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease during your orthodontic treatment. You may even be able to use your Invisalign aligners with professional-strength whitening gel to whiten your teeth.
