Are you looking for an effective yet discreet solution for straightening your teeth in Austin? It might be time to talk with Dr. Tejas Patel to learn about the benefits of Invisalign.

We talk to patients often that would love to have straighter teeth. Patients are self-conscious about crooked teeth or an overbite, but even more self-conscious about wires, brackets, and bands – the classic “metal mouth” look of traditional braces.

Fortunately, Dr. Patel may have the solution: Invisalign.

Invisalign is the brand name of a system of clear braces, furthermore Invisalign is probably the most popular and sought after clear braces system today.

Benefits of Invisalign

With traditional braces, many people – especially adults – aren’t comfortable or aren’t willing to commit to 1-2 years of metal bands and wires permanently attached to their teeth. They may not be willing to go to the dentist or orthodontist to have their braces adjusted every month.

Before Invisalign and mid-treatment! Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign is different. Instead of metal brackets, the Invisalign patient wears a series of clear plastic trays that fit over their teeth like a sports mouthguard. However, because it is made of hard, clear plastic, it is literally invisible to everyone else. The trays have been carefully designed and tailored to your individual case needs and treatment goals, just like traditional braces. The difference is, no more “metal mouth.”

Another benefit of Invisalign is convenience. You, the patient, are now in the driver’s seat. While you still need to periodically visit Austin Cosmetic Dentistry for checkups and to ensure your Invisalign system is adequately meeting your treatment goals, you no longer have to spend a lot of time in the dentist’s chair – or even waiting to get into the dentist’s chair. You can remove them whenever you need to brush and floss.

Lastly, one of the major benefits of Invisalign is that it doesn’t place as much pressure on your teeth as traditional braces, so the adjustments are usually gentler on your teeth.
