What Is Invisalign? 

Invisalign is an alternative to traditional metal braces. It uses a sequence of clear plastic “aligners” or “trays” to correct your smile. These aligners exert pressure on your teeth and force them to move over time, just like braces.

But unlike braces, you won’t have to deal with the discomfort of metal braces, or the effects that braces have on your appearance. Invisalign is completely invisible when worn, making it an excellent choice for those who want subtle treatment for a straighter smile. Get in touch with Consultants In Dental Aesthetics today, and see if Invisalign is right for you. Our office is located at 9700 Louetta Road, Spring, TX 77379.

The Benefits Invisalign

Invisalign is completely invisible when worn and does not affect speech or your appearance. Nobody has to know that you’re straightening your teeth unless you want them to know.

In addition to this, Invisalign is more comfortable than braces. It’s also more convenient, since you can remove it to brush and floss, and to eat and drink. There are no dietary restrictions and it’s easy to keep your teeth and gums clean.

How Long Does Invisalign Take?

This varies on the patient. On average, patients need to wear Invisalign for about a year, but some treatments can take up to 18 months or longer for those who have major orthodontic issues. In contrast, those with minor cosmetic problems may be able to get treatment in under 12 months.

If you’re curious about how long your treatment may take, Consultants in Dental Aesthetics is here to help. Dr. Landry can assess your oral health and orthodontic needs, and give you an estimate about how long you can expect to wear Invisalign.

The Benefits Of Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry helps reduce feelings of anxiety, discomfort, and fear during dental appointments, making patients more relaxed and comfortable. This ensures that you can always get the care you need, even if you’re nervous or scared of seeing the dentist.

It also helps with things like fear of needles, which can be problematic when numbing needles are needed to deliver local anesthetic. Sedation dentistry also impairs the gag reflex, which makes it easier to deliver dental care to patients who have a very strong gag reflex.
