Having aligned and cosmetically appealing teeth is a desire for numerous people, ranging from pre-teens to older men and women. But for many patients, misaligned, crooked, or overcrowded teeth could be a barrier to a confident smile. While these orthodontic concerns can certainly affect the look of the smile, numerous adults and adolescents consider the idea of traditional orthodontics to be a less appealing solution. To assist these patients, the qualified dental providers at Made Ya Smile are proud to offer the Invisalign clear aligner system as an alternative option and are ready to reveal the long-term impacts it can provide for your oral health. A multitude of people across Houston, TX have enjoyed firsthand the exciting cosmetic and oral health results of this innovative, discreet orthodontic solution.

The Invisalign system is a minimally noticeable aligner-based method that can allow Houston, TX adults and teens a quicker path to a straighter, more attractive smile, especially those who want to avoid a longer orthodontic therapy. Electing to go with Invisalign treatment offers a degree of discretion unattainable with standard orthodontics — even when utilizing tooth-colored or clear brackets. Invisalign clear aligners can be taken out of the mouth and are created with a pliable, practically undetectable proprietary substance called SmartTrack®. Offering aesthetic benefits, this treatment solution does not carry the look and discomfort of bulky hardware and is often a good option for both adolescent and adult patients. To learn whether Invisalign treatment may possibly be suitable for you or your family’s teeth, our Invisalign providers at Made Ya Smile invite you to read on and find out who may be a candidate for this advanced ortho solution.

This orthodontic option is usually selected by a number of Houston, TX teens and adults due to its comfort, convenience, and barely visible appearance. While the Invisalign system is a great orthodontic treatment for a number of individuals, traditional braces might still offer the most effective treatment in some cases. Appropriate candidates for Invisalign orthodontics could include people who:

  • Have functional issues due to an overbite, underbite, crossbite, or open bite
  • Have spaces between teeth or teeth that are overcrowded
  • Have overlapping or misaligned teeth
  • Are affected by smaller dental arches
  • Have experienced a relapse in orthodontic results
  • Are just starting orthodontic treatment
  • Are pre-teens and teenagers
  • Are working professionals
  • Are musicians or athletes

Invisalign clear aligners may be used to treat a large variety of oral concerns in less treatment time when compared with conventional orthodontics. Custom-created and computer-fabricated uniquely for every individual, the Invisalign system improves and straightens teeth through a series of discreet mouth trays. The providers at Made Ya Smile utilize sophisticated technology to digitally construct the orthodontic program, planning the specific movement of the teeth. This information is then sent to a professional Invisalign laboratory, where your sets of aligners are made to achieve individual goals. Each pair of trays is kept in place for a few weeks. As each pair is switched out for the next in the series, your teeth should incrementally shift in the direction of their designated locations while directed by the gentle force provided by every specific aligner tray. Apart from the efficient and inconspicuous features of Invisalign treatment for adolescent and adult orthodontics, many people often find the process to be easier to endure and less challenging for their day-to-day lives.

Though the clear trays sit securely on the teeth, they also may be conveniently taken out prior to mealtimes as well as for at-home teeth cleaning. Since there are no dietary barriers when choosing Invisalign orthodontics, our patients can still enjoy any kind of food and avoid painful gum, cheek, or lip irritation and the chance of harming their ortho appliances. Houston, TX individuals who participate in physical activities or play musical instruments don't have to be concerned about their braces being a nuisance, as the teeth aligners can be easily removed before such events.

After the Invisalign treatment process is over and the teeth are straight and properly aligned, a set of custom Invisalign Vivera® retainers will be created from the same smooth substance as your aligners. The process of wearing retainers right after active ortho treatment helps your teeth stay put in their desired positions. The retainers should feel like the flexible Invisalign aligner trays you wore during your ortho treatment.

Invisalign trays may be an effective alternative for young individuals and mature patients who want a faster, more inconspicuous approach to straighten their teeth. The most effective way to determine if this treatment can help boost your appearance and health is by reserving an appointment with our Invisalign dentists at Made Ya Smile. Get in touch with our Houston, TX location to set up an orthodontic consultation with our highly-trained team. Achieving a well-aligned, attractive smile could be simpler than you think!
