What causes crooked teeth?

Crooked or misaligned teeth is a very common problem among teenagers and adults. Causes for crooked teeth may include:

  • Genetics

  • Chronic thumb-sucking

  • Chewing on hard objects or foods

  • Trauma or injury to teeth or jawline

Whatever the reason, cosmetic orthodontic treatments are available to straighten the teeth and produce a long-lasting, gorgeous smile. At Made Ya Smile Dental, we offer safe and effective Invisalign treatments.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a cosmetic dental treatment that utilizes a series of clear trays fitted to your natural teeth for the purpose of straightening and correcting a misaligned smile. Each tray is switched out every couple of weeks to gradually align the teeth into a natural position for the sake of improving your bite and aesthetic appearance. At Made Ya Smile Dental, our team performs an initial examination to assess the unique nature of your teeth and to design the most effective treatment path for you.

Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign offers our patients numerous benefits, including:

  • Clear, removable trays for ease of brushing and eating

  • Custom-fit trays to optimize treatment and results

  • Rupture tabs to allow for developing molars in teenage patients

  • Compliance indicators to ensure full wear time

  • A tailored retainer about completion of treatment to maintain results

Who would make an ideal candidate for Invisalign treatments?

Ideal patients for Invisalign treatments include teenagers and adults with:

  • Crooked or misaligned teeth

  • An overbite or underbite

  • A narrow dental arch

  • Generally healthy gums, jawbone, and teeth

Each patient has their teeth, gums, and oral structures examined by our team to determine if they can safely participate in Invisalign treatments. Patients with active decay or gum disease may need to resolve these conditions first prior to starting Invisalign.

How the Invisalign treatment process works

Patients visit our office in Houston where we will collect digital impressions and 3D imaging of their teeth and head. The impressions are sent to our laboratory where customized, clear trays are fabricated. Each tray is worn for 2 weeks and then switched out to the next tray to gradually straighten the teeth. Patients are only required to visit our office for check-ups once every 4-6 weeks. Once your Invisalign treatment is completed, you will be issued a retainer to maintain your new smile.

How long will I have to wear my Invisalign trays?

Each tray is worn for 2 weeks for approximately 20-22 hours per day. The entire duration of your treatment highly depends on the initial status of your teeth, your personal goals, and our team’s professional recommendations.

After Invisalign treatments are complete

To maintain your new smile and protect your teeth, consider applying the following tips:

  • Wear your new retainer according to our recommended schedule

  • Wear a mouthguard for contact sports

  • Brush and floss your teeth twice daily

  • Eat nutritious meals

  • Avoid foods that are chewy, sticky, or hard

  • Limit your sugar intake

  • Attend routine dental check-ups and cleanings
