What Is Invisalign?

Teeth that are straight and properly aligned are not only the focal point of an attractive, confident smile — they are often more comfortable and healthier as well. Dental malocclusion concerns, like an overbite, crooked teeth, and overcrowding, can lead to future problems that may be more costly or difficult to fix. To help Harker Heights, TX patients attain a straight and healthy grin, our certified dentists are pleased to offer the option of Invisalign. These clear teeth aligners are made custom for your teeth, offering a discreet alternative to the look of metal braces. Invisalign aligners are crafted from a smooth, comfortable material and can be removed to make eating your favorite foods and brushing your teeth much easier. If you are interested in getting straighter teeth with the advanced Invisalign technology, please schedule a consultation at ACE Dental of Harker Heights!

Who Is a Candidate for Clear Teeth Aligners?

A range of circumstances can impact tooth alignment, from childhood thumb-sucking and genetics to oral trauma and tooth loss. Tooth misalignment can also lead to other problems, such as an uneven bite, worn or cracked teeth, trouble speaking and chewing, oral pain, and even lower self-esteem. Our Harker Heights, TX dentists may recommend Invisalign to address orthodontic conditions, such as:

  • Narrow dental arches
  • Gapped teeth
  • Overbite or underbite
  • Crossbite or open bite
  • Overcrowding
  • Crooked teeth

Teens and adults who want to gain a straighter smile without the challenges of metal orthodontics may be good candidates for Invisalign. Since these teeth aligners can be removed, they may also be ideal for patients who play musical instruments or sports.

How Does Invisalign Work?

The Invisalign orthodontic process gently guides teeth into their ideal locations through a series of clear teeth aligners made of a smooth, durable material. To get started, we will take digital iTero impressions of your teeth, which the Invisalign lab will use to generate your custom trays. After your teeth aligners arrive in our office, we will have you return to try in your first set. You will be instructed to wear each pair of aligners for 1 – 2 weeks before changing them out for the next set in your series. It is important to keep your trays in your mouth for at least 20 hours each day and only remove them to brush and floss or eat or drink.

After Orthodontic Treatment

As soon as your teeth have reached ideal alignment, it is vital to prevent them from moving back to their original position with orthodontic retainers. Invisalign's Vivera® retainers are made using the same clear material and can help hold your teeth in place as the rest of your mouth stabilizes. Each retainer is custom made at the Invisalign dental laboratory from impressions taken after orthodontic treatment is completed. Our team will explain how to wear, store, and care for your retainers. Our Invisalign dentists will continue to monitor your tooth alignment and bite during your routine dental exam visits at ACE Dental of Harker Heights.

Insurance Coverage for Orthodontic Care

A portion of the Invisalign treatment cost may be covered under some dental insurance plans. Our office will determine your coverage and figure out your personal costs before we begin the treatment process. ACE Dental of Harker Heights accepts several flexible methods of payment for patients who do not have dental insurance or who have out-of-pocket costs. During your Invisalign consultation, we can help you explore your financial solutions and even assist you in applying for special patient financing.
