Where can I find an Invisalign dentist near me

At Cosmetic Dentistry of San Antonio, we see many patients in the community who are interested in realigning their teeth. However, many avoid the conversation, as straightening teeth often requires traditional metal braces. Fortunately, Drs. Edward Camacho and Natalie Pennington of San Antonio, Texas, are pleased to provide an alternative using Invisalign orthodontics. Invisalign is a revolutionary way to realign teeth in a more discreet and private manner, using trays instead of metal brackets and wires.

What is Invisalign?

Drs. Camacho and Pennington describe Invisalign as a “clear” alternative to traditional metal braces. With Invisalign, patients receive a series of custom-made, clear aligners designed to gradually shift their teeth into the desired position.

What are some of the advantages of Invisalign orthodontics?

The aligners used with Invisalign treatment are virtually undetectable when worn, making it an ideal choice for those who want straighter teeth without having to wear unsightly metal braces. Unlike traditional braces, which require frequent office visits for adjustments, Invisalign allows patients to maintain their usual lifestyle with fewer dental appointments. Patients simply switch out their aligners every two weeks and attend regular check-up visits with our dentists to monitor progress. With proper use, most of our patients begin to see results within three months, with full results often achieved within a year.

How do Invisalign aligners work?

When you meet with Drs. Camacho and Pennington, they will take a scan of your teeth to create an individualized treatment plan that maps out the exact movements of your teeth throughout your treatment. The aligners are then made from smooth plastic and fit snugly over the teeth. As you move from one aligner to the next, your teeth gradually shift into position for a straighter smile. Unlike many other orthodontic treatments, Invisalign does not involve metal wires or brackets, which can irritate the gums and cheeks.

Am I a candidate for Invisalign treatment?

Our Invisalign dentists can evaluate your current smile and talk to you about your goals. If you have mild to moderate misalignment of the teeth and are interested in finding out if Invisalign meets your needs, a consultation visit is needed. Many of our patients who comply with treatment will find that Invisalign helps them achieve the desired results without the embarrassment of metal appliances covering their smiles.
