Correcting a crooked smile doesn't have to mean a mouth full of wires and brackets. One popular orthodontic alternative to traditional metal braces is Invisalign®. With Invisalign’s clear aligner system, issues such as crowding, spacing, and overbites are corrected in a gentle aesthetically pleasing way. Clear aligners, or trays, are custom-made to gradually create the desired outcome.
As a Preferred Provider, Dr. Shahdad offers Invisalign to patients who don't require extensive orthodontic alterations, more severe cases are referred to a local orthodontist. The professionals at DFW Absolute Dental believe Invisalign provides a comfortable alternative to traditional orthodontic metal brackets and wires. Patients enjoy all the cosmetic benefits without any disruption to their life-style.
Invisible Correction: Invisalign aligners are made of a clear, plastic molded to fit the teeth. Patients can have their smile transformed almost invisibly!
Cleanliness: Invisalign can be removed to be cleaned after use. Patients can practice normal, regular dental hygiene, such as flossing and brushing.
No Dietary Restrictions: Since the clear aligners can be removed, patients need not give up on certain foods and can instead enjoy their regular diet and snacks!
Functionality: Thanks to their transparency, Invisalign can help people who feel self-conscious about their appearance, or who want to feel more comfortable in social and professional settings. Also, their size and proximity to the teeth mean Invisalign patients should not notice any problems with speech.
Comfort: Invisalign doesn't involve any protruding pieces of metal, brackets, or wires, thereby reducing the amount of tenderness and discomfort felt by the patient during the straightening process.
