Invisalign® an Amazing Solution

Invisalign® is the best solution for mild to moderate crooked smiles. With clear braces in Houston you can have straighter teeth without the rest of the world knowing about it.

That means you and your teeth and gums will be uniform in less time without the planet knowing you are wearing wires and brackets.

What is Invisalign®?

If you follow the LifeSmiles by Randy Mitchmore DDS blog you will recall that Invisalign® is the oldest and most recognized tooth straightening system. While there are others available, none have the reputation that Invisalign® does.

Invisalign® is synonymous with clear plastic aligners. With that being said everyone else is jumping on the bandwagon because clear plastic aligners do work. However, you MUST be monitored by a cosmetic dentist.

Although most patients are clear winners when it comes to this type of tooth straightening system you must be monitored by a dentist before proceeding.

If you are on social media you have probably seen clear removable braces online. Do yourself a favor and don’t fall for the commercials. See your dentist in Houston instead.

Custom Made Aligners

Clear removable aligners are made from digital pictures and impressions. This helps Dr. Randy Mitchmore determine what type of treatment is best for you and your smile.

For instance, if you have a severe under bite or a space that is quite wide Invisalign® may not be the best solution.

If this is you LifeSmiles by Randy Mitchmore DDS will most likely recommend conventional braces for your treatment.

Keep in mind this cosmetic dentist in Houston would never recommend a solution that isn’t suitable for you and your teeth and gums.

How Invisalign® Works

If you are a good fit for custom made braces in Houston Dr. Mitchmore will take digital pictures and impressions for your new aligners.

Depending on your prescription you will be given 11 to 31 sets of aligners. Because every patient is different you will remove and replace every 7 to 14 days.

Invisalign® is worn 22 hours every day. The only time you take out your aligners is when you eat and clean your teeth. This is vital if you want your treatment to be completed according to schedule.

While conventional wires and brackets can take up to 24 months, Invisalign® results can be had in as little as 9 to 18 months.
