I’ve heard about Invisalign, but is It Right for Me? How Invisalign works to comfortably straighten your teeth.

If you want your teeth to be straighter, but are worried about getting metal braces because you’ve heard they are uncomfortable, or you Invisaligndon’t like how they look, there is a new option just for you. It’s called Invisalign, and Dr. Thomas Tran, of Lone Star Dental Center, in Arlington, Texas, is an expert on the Invisalign treatment process.

Invisalign is a process using comfortable, clear plastic appliances, called aligners. That’s it! No metal brackets or wires are needed. The aligners are comfortable, and virtually invisible!

Invisalign appliances are custom-made trays that fit over your teeth, and you wear them for a time specified in the treatment plan Dr. Tran will design just for you.

You will wear a set of aligners for two weeks, but unlike braces, you can remove them to brush and floss your teeth, and to eat and drink, making it much easier to keep your teeth clean; plus, unlike with traditional braces you can eat and drink whatever you want.

After the first two weeks, you will change to a different set of aligners and then change again, about every two weeks. Your teeth will shift into alignment, gradually, gently and comfortably. Before you know it, you will have straight teeth!

You will visit Dr. Tran about every six weeks, so he can see how your treatment is going. The total time to complete your Invisalign treatment is about nine to 15 months.

Common problems Invisalign can correct are:

  • Spaces between teeth
  • Teeth that are crowded together
  • Overbites, underbites, crossbites, or open bite

To learn if Invisalign is right for you, stop by and visit Dr. Thomas Tran, of Lone Star Dental Center, your neighborhood dentist in Arlington, Texas. Don’t hesitate! Call soon and be on your way to a comfortable, modern way to straighten your teeth, the Invisalign way!
