A Dentist Explains How to Get a Beautiful, Functional Smile with Invisalign

A Dentist Explains How to Get a Beautiful

Did you know you can straighten your teeth by asking your local San Antonio, Texas dentist about Invisalign? Now you can obtain the smile of your dreams at Dr. Edward Camacho‘s practice without seeing an outside orthodontist if you are searching for an invisible braces dentist near you. Invisalign is the leading provider of aligner trays that allow patients to straighten their teeth more discreetly. 

Invisalign treatment with your dentist

Aligner trays are an alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign trays are made of clear, BPA-free plastic. They are custom-designed for each patient using impressions of the teeth to ensure a snug, comfortable fit. This proper fit helps to avoid slipping and maintains patient comfort.

Invisible braces use trays to apply gentle pressure to shift the teeth into alignment. A series of trays are used. One set is worn for a couple of weeks and then discarded for a new set. In each stage of trays, the placement of pressure is changed. That allows for a gradual, gentle shift as your teeth move into their appropriate positions. Aligner trays can be used to treat patients with mild to moderate and even some severe orthodontic needs.

Patient-Controlled Success

Invisalign is often the treatment of choice for patients who qualify. The clear plastic makes them nearly invisible to the general public. Patients are not embarrassed by unsightly metal brackets and wires. Although the trays must be worn according to the dentist’s instructions for 20-22 hours each day, patients can remove them for eating, drinking, and oral hygiene. Progress is monitored through periods of dental assessments.

Because invisible braces are removable, patients control the success of the treatment. Following the dentist’s instructions helps ensure optimal results. Wearing the aligner trays for the advised amount of time each day improves the chances of a positive outcome. That decreases the possibility of needing a longer treatment time or future orthodontic correction.
