Enhance and Protect Your Sensational Smile


About Invisalign®

Are you an adult afraid to wear dental braces? Worried how would you look in traditional adult braces? Don’t worry. Grand Smiles Dental, the popular Katy dental clinic offers Invisalign, which are removable orthodontic devices and are an entirely new form of the traditional dental braces you’ve been avoiding. These adult braces are ideal for patients who are worried about their aesthetics and want to straighten their teeth without the pain, embarrassment, and discomfort of adult braces and orthodontic adjustments.

Invisalign consists of a series of clear plastic trays that hold onto the teeth and gradually help them shift to proper positions. The advantage of using Invisalign over traditional adult braces are numerous.

Invisalign vs. Traditional Dental Braces

People suffering from dental deformities shy away from wearing dental braces, since it shows when they smile. It also makes them feel uncomfortable while eating or talking. We at the Katy dental clinic offer a solution to this problem. With Invisalign you can align your teeth without being worried about your looks. Here are some advantages of Invisalign over traditional dental braces:

  • Invisalign consists of clear aligners that are virtually invisible, so they look natural.
  • Traditional braces are made of brackets and wires which can offer much discomfort. Invisalign is made of smooth clear plastic so there is no irritation in the mouth.
  • Traditional braces require more effort while brushing or flossing, while you can remove the Invisalign braces to clean your teeth like you are accustomed to doing.
  • You need to restrict yourself from enjoying many types of food if you are wearing traditional braces. But with Invisalign, your diet does not need to change.

If you suffer from severe misalignment of your teeth, Invisalign may not be appropriate for you. In such cases the doctors at our Katy dental clinic would recommend wearing traditional braces which offer better support to your teeth and help in treating complex malocclusions.

Invisalign Process at our Katy Dental Clinic

On your first visit to our Katy dental clinic, our dentist would take moulds of your teeth to customize the Invisalign. Initially you’ll be required to wear the first set of aligners and when you get used to them you will be given your next three sets of Invisalign aligners. You’ll have to wear your Invisalign trays all the time, except while eating, brushing or flossing. The Invisalign trays are replaced every 2 weeks and during the visit we also check on the progress of your alignment. People wearing Invisalign often get results as early as 12 months, so long as they follow good Invisalign habits and wear their provided trays.
