A popular option for straightening teeth at JT Orthodontics, Invisalign is a great method for improving your smile! Invisalign is clinically proven to help patients with crowded teeth, crossbites, overbites, underbites, and more.
How It Works
Invisalign is a series of clear, retainer-like aligners that gradually move your teeth into their ideal positions. Patients usually swap aligners every few weeks.
Dr. Jesse Teng is a VIP Platinum Invisalign Provider, proving he has the experience to give you the smile you’ve always wanted. During your initial visit, we take a digital impression of your teeth. We can use this impression to plan and walk you through your treatment.
Next, we will likely put attachments on your teeth to assist the aligners. We may also decide to use IPR to make space for tooth movement. Don’t worry; it doesn’t hurt! Then you can sit back, relax, and wait for your aligners to come in.
Better Than Braces
Once your Invisalign aligners come in, you will notice the difference immediately. The aligners are invisible and removable, so you can eat and drink what you want. Brushing and flossing are much easier than with braces. Invisalign’s aligners are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during your treatment. No metal and wires means you spend less time at our office getting adjustments. With Invisalign, you can view your own virtual treatment plan when you start, so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete!
How Long Treatment Takes
Depending on the severity of the problem, Invisalign treatment may take anywhere from three to 18 months to complete. You should be aware that Invisalign is not as effective as traditional braces in treating bite problems, teeth that are lower or higher than others, or severely overcrowded teeth. Both teens and adults are now great candidates for Invisalign, so we invite you to contact our El Paso, TX office to set up an initial consultation and learn more on how Invisalign can give you the smile you’ve always wanted!
