When children get braces, the process often represents a transition from childhood to adulthood. The ‘baby’ teeth have gone, and the adult teeth are in, but some improvement in alignment may be necessary. Young adults want to look their best in all situations, so braces are the answer. For adults, on the other hand, often, getting braces means moving along a pathway to a more beautiful and confident smile. All of us want to look our best and, again, braces can be the way to go. Your family dentist in Cypress can help. We can answer all your questions about braces. With braces, not only do patients end up with a brighter, more radiant smile, but they also enjoy the benefits of improved oral health and greater confidence in all social situations.
But what about all those wires and brackets? Are they really necessary to get the advantages of straighter, healthier teeth? The answer is ‘No.’ You can avoid traditional braces using a product, recommended by your family dentist in Cypress called Invisalign. This product straightens your teeth using a series of clear plastic aligners designed from a 3D model of your teeth. These high-tech, patented clear plastic aligners are explicitly designed for your teeth based on a quick and easy digital scan of your mouth. These resulting, custom-made aligners slip over your teeth, are virtually invisible, and gradually move your teeth into the desired positions.
Once your family dentist in Cypress creates a 3D scan of your teeth, a set of from 18 to 30 Invisalign clear aligners are manufactured. These are specifically designed to follow your treatment plan; beginning with the first aligner which moves your teeth a little, then each subsequent aligner moving your teeth a little bit more in the direction of the final straightened alignment. By working through the entire set of aligners, the patient’s teeth are gradually moved into the desired position.
Your family dentist in Cypress is happy to discuss the advantages of Invisalign which include fewer visits to the dentist office and virtually invisible braces. Also, with Invisalign, the aligners can be removed for short periods, such as for eating, or for an outing to movies or parties. While Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible when worn, periodically removing the aligners makes special occasions even more special, more fun, and more comfortable.
