Invisalign® Treatments IN Richardson
Are misaligned teeth keeping you from smiling with confidence? You’re not alone. Every year, teens and adults seek orthodontic treatment. For some patients, that solution is traditional braces.
For others, traditional braces are no longer the best option. Many adults want to find the most discreet option possible because they don’t want to lose their professional, mature appearance. In these situations, Dr. Nathan Coughlin may recommend treatment with the popular Invisalign system.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Traditional braces move teeth into their ideal position with brackets and wires. The Invisalign system uses a series of plastic alignment trays.
The full number of trays included in your kit will be determined by your specific needs and the plan we create. As you go through treatment, you'll wear each custom set of trays for approximately two weeks before moving on to the next set of aligners in your treatment kit. When you've worn all your trays, you’ll have a straighter, more confident smile you’ll want to share with friends and family.
Benefits of Invisalign
The greatest benefit of Invisalign is that it uses clear trays. As you complete treatment, no one but you and our Richardson team will even notice that you’re wearing them.
There’s more to love about Invisalign than just the discreet appearance. Your Invisalign trays are also removable. That means you can easily take them out for meals. With traditional braces, you’re more limited in what you can eat. Certain foods are prone to getting stuck around brackets and wires. Other foods, like those that are particularly chewy or crunchy, can even damage braces. But with Invisalign, you enjoy a completely unrestricted diet.
You can also remove your Invisalign braces for brushing and flossing. With traditional braces, it can be difficult to truly get your teeth as clean as they should be. Invisalign makes this much easier.
Is Invisalign Right for Me?
While Invisalign is a great solution for many patients, some should still consider traditional braces. During a consultation at our Richardson office, board certified orthodontist Dr. Nathan Coughlin assesses your needs and makes a personalized recommendation. If Invisalign isn’t the best solution for you, we would be happy to discuss alternate solutions.
