Traditional orthodontics have been used for decades to straighten the smile and improve patient confidence. While metal brackets and wires are an effective way of moving teeth into proper alignment, they are not the only way. Thanks to advancements in today’s orthodontic services, patients in Georgetown, TX, may be excited to learn they can enhance their smile without metal appliances and instead with the use of clear plastic aligner trays used in a treatment called Invisalign.
Understanding Invisalign and how it works
Drs. Mark Duncan and Mandy Holley of Aesthetic Dentistry of Georgetown are dental professionals who encourage patients to ask them about Invisalign as an alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign is able to provide the same results without covering the smile with metal appliances. With Invisalign, patients progress through their smile alignment using a series of trays custom-made for them. These trays are designed with digital impressions of the current smile and use software to develop the final results and the trays needed to achieve them.
Can Invisalign achieve the same results as traditional metal braces?
Patients often have a lot of questions about Invisalign and about their candidacy for treatment. Can I really straighten my smile without metal? Does Invisalign work as well as conventional braces? Many of our patients are pleased to find out that their misalignment concerns can be addressed using these clear trays instead of metal brackets and wires. Most mild to moderate misalignment of the teeth will benefit from Invisalign treatment. Patients need to fully understand that because these appliances are removable, compliance with treatment recommendations from our team of professionals will ensure the desired results are achieved in the projected timeframe initially discussed during the first consultation visit.
