Invisalign: A More Comfortable and Discreet Orthodontic Option 

A misaligned smile can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. However, many patients avoid straightening their teeth because they believe braces are the only option. At our Carrollton, TX, practice, we offer Invisalign®, a comfortable and inconspicuous alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to guide your teeth into place. Dr. Anthony Dillard can design a customized Invisalign treatment plan to straighten your smile and restore your confidence in your appearance.

Why Choose Invisalign?

Invisalign offers a range of advantages over traditional orthodontics, such as:

  • Convenience: Since Invisalign is removable, you can care for your teeth easily without having to struggle with brackets or wires. 
  • Comfort: The smooth plastic of the aligners fits comfortably over the teeth, allowing you to avoid the irritation of metal braces.
  • Discretion: The plastic is clear, making it virtually invisible and preserving the appearance of your smile while you straighten your teeth.
  • Speed: In many cases, Invisalign is faster than traditional braces.

The Invisalign aligner system also allows you to enjoy all of your favorite foods without restrictions. Simply remove your aligners before you eat or drink.

Determining If Invisalign Is Right for You

If you are interested in Invisalign, the first step is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Dillard. He can perform a full evaluation of your teeth and jaw and take digital x-rays. You can ask any questions you have at this time. Dr. Dillard can also discuss your goals and concerns to help choose the right treatment.

In general, Invisalign treats most of the same concerns as braces, including:

  • Gaps
  • Underbites
  • Overbites
  • Crowded teeth
  • Crossbites
  • Open bites

There are some issues that will require treatment with traditional metal braces. However, for most types of misalignment, Dr. Dillard can tailor a plan with Invisalign to suit your unique needs. In some cases, he may recommend an alternative cosmetic dental treatment, such as porcelain veneers

Life with Invisalign

If you decide to proceed with treatment, Dr. Dillard will take impressions of your smile and send the information to Invisalign. They will craft your customized aligners using advanced SmartTrack® material. When they are ready, you can begin your treatment.

The Invisalign aligner system also allows you to enjoy all of your favorite foods without restrictions. Simply remove your aligners before you eat or drink.  

You will need to wear your aligners about 20 to 22 hours each day. We recommend removing them only to eat, drink, brush, or floss. About every two weeks you will trade your current aligners for the next set in the series. You may feel some discomfort for a few days when you switch to a new set.

Every six to eight weeks, we will schedule an appointment to check your progress. Dr. Dillard can also provide you with additional aligners.
