Invisalign® in McKinney, TX
Red Oak Family Dentistry is proud to be a certified Invisalign provider for our patients who are interested in the most modern technology for straightening teeth and other dental care services. Invisalign treatment uses a series of virtually invisible and removable aligners that are made with 3D computer imaging technology and have been proven to be just as effective as traditional braces. You will obtain a beautiful smile without having the restrictions of braces.
Clear Dental Aligner
In addition to being virtually invisible, Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can eat and drink with no restrictions during your treatment. It is also easy to maintain good oral hygiene while brushing and flossing while the aligners are removed. Invisalign has also been proven to be more comfortable than the metal brackets and wires of traditional braces because all surfaces of the aligners are smooth. Since your treatment will not require regular adjustments like traditional braces, you will spend less time in our office, which means less hassle to you. In addition, Invisalign treatment creates a personalized virtual treatment plan when you start so that you can see how your teeth will look when your treatment is completed.
After individual impressions are made of your teeth, you will receive a series of Invisalign aligners. Each aligner will be worn for approximately two weeks and they should only be removed to eat, drink, brush and floss. The aligner should be worn for approximately 22 hours per day for maximum results. As each aligner is replaced with the next one in the series, the teeth will slowly move into alignment until they have straightened to their final positions.
The total treatment time will depend upon each patient’s dental needs, but the average duration of treatment is 9 -15 months. Each patient will need to have a routine dental visit approximately every 6 weeks to ensure that the treatment is properly progressing.
