When it comes to straightening teeth or fixing a misaligned bite, many people automatically think of braces. However, modern technology has made it possible for teens and adults to achieve a straight smiler through the simple use of aligners. Dr. Angelie Zamora of Smiles Family Dental offers Invisalign® orthodontics to help patients achieve the smile they have always dreamed of.

 The Technology of Clear Aligners 

Invisalign® treatment consists of a series of clear aligner trays that are custom fit for every patient. Treatment often lasts anywhere from 12 to 18 months, and the number of aligners required differs depending on treatment length and how far the teeth need to move. Many patients go through 20 to 30 aligners over the course of treatment. 

Advantages to Treatment 

There are many good reasons to consider aligners for straightening your teeth:

  • They are removable, making it easier to clean your teeth and eat
  • There are fewer restrictions on the foods you can eat
  • Treatment is often shorter than with traditional braces
  • The aligners are clear so as to be less noticeable to others

To help your treatment succeed, it is important that you commit to following your dentist’s instructions. This means that you must keep the aligners in for the designated amount of time, which is usually at least 22 hours a day. If you cannot commit to following instructions for treatment, then you may want to consider other orthodontic options. 

A Tailored Plan for Your Needs 

Every patient has different needs, so you should not expect your Invisalign® treatment to go exactly the same as someone else’s. Your dentist in Flower Mound, TX, can help you come up with an orthodontic treatment plan that meets your needs and ultimate oral goals.
