If you are ready to reimagine your smile, but haven’t quite warmed up to the idea of wearing classic metal braces for 2-3 years of your life, then Dr. Leiker has some exciting news for you! Our Texas orthodontist’s office (with locations in Conroe and The Woodlands) has an alternative orthodontic treatment program that utilizes a series of clear, virtually invisible plastic aligners to correct crooked, crowded or gapped teeth without attracting unwanted any attention during the process. It’s called Invisalign, and after you’ve read today’s post it will become clear to you why you ought to give it a try! Whether you are interested in Invisalign for your teenager or for yourself, all you have to do is get in touch to schedule an Invisalign consultation at Leiker Orthodontics.
Your Lifestyle Doesn’t Have To Change With These “Braces”
Standard braces would have to remain in-place for the duration of your treatment once they are installed. With Invisalign, though, the equipment is not only discreet, it is also removable. You get to change your aligners out on your own at home every two weeks to keep the process moving in the right direction.
Since they are removable, you can take your aligners out at dinner time, which means they won’t be able to trap bits of food like metal braces. As such, you won’t have to avoid the foods that you love to eat. Plus, you won’t need to pack special tools for cleaning, or make special trips to the grocery.
What’s more, since there won’t be any mandatory in-office adjustments, Invisalign won’t feel like it is consuming as much of your free-time in the same way that a typical orthodontic treatment can.
It Is Easy To Care For Invisalign Aligners
You and/or your teenager will enjoy how easy it is to keep your mouth fresh and clean with Invisalign. You simply have to remove your “clear braces,” rinse them under warm water, and pop them back into place when you are through. You can also keep brushing and flossing your teeth just like you always do.
You Can Keep Your Teen Accountable For Progress
If you are interested in Invisalign for your teen, rather than yourself, you are going to have special concerns. Dr. Leiker knows full well that an orthodontic treatment is a serious investment of your time and money. And since even the best teenagers can be lazy and forgetful at times, it is good to have a way to keep them on track. That’s why the teen version of Invisalign has come equipped with a special feature to allow you to hold your teen accountable for following the directions each day. It won’t involve any spying or nagging them about their obligations. All you have to do is check their equipment. Here’s the deal: when the aligners are worn properly (most of the day, every day), a small blue dot on the back of the aligners will slowly disappear. This will let you know that everything is still moving along on schedule, and that your investment won’t be wasted.
The Transformation Is Quick
From where we sit, one of the best parts is that an Invisalign treatment normally wraps up in only about a year, depending on your situation when we get started. When it is over, the health and appearance of your smile (or your teen’s smile) will have been given a nice big boost! Obviously, the sooner you contact us to arrange for your consultation, the sooner you will be enjoying all the benefits of your orthodontic treatment.
