The Benefits of Invisalign

Jan 13, 2019

Invisalign is a modern, fully digitized experience to help you get the smile you want, the way you want! Invisalign aligners are customized for you and provide for the straightening of a myriad of smile alignment issues – quickly and discreetly. Dr. Maisa Idriss, a dentist in Spring, TX provides Invisalign clear aligners to her patients who are deemed good candidates. You can trust the expertise of Dr. Idriss to guide you in making that determination. Discover the benefits of this revolutionary orthodontic system.

What are Invisalign aligners?

Invisalign aligners are today’s excellent alternative to metal or ceramic braces and are custom-made using information from a three-dimensional digital scan conducted at The Smile Designer. These acrylic aligners are very thin, smooth, and clear. When snapped in place over top and bottom arches, they are totally unnoticeable.

In all, pairs number 18 to 30. They snap over top and bottom teeth and work over time to gradually and comfortably move them into healthier and more attractive positions.

Treatment time is shorter than with traditional ceramic or metal braces–about a year as opposed to the traditional two to two and a half years or longer. However, patients must adhere to their treatment plan as outlined by Dr. Idriss, and wear the aligners the required 20 to 22 hours per day for best results. Ask about optional compliance tabs that tell the patient if he or she is wearing the aligners for the appropriate amount of time each day.

When treatment with Invisalign is complete you’ll have a beautiful set of teeth which are healthier, easier to maintain and aesthetically pleasing! In other words, a true representation of how you always wanted to smile. You can request a customized Vivera retainer that keeps those beautifully aligned teeth straight, indefinitely.

The benefits of Invisalign aligners?

Well, there are many! They include:

  • Removability for hygiene, meals, and special events
  • Gradual and comfortable realignment of crooked and/or gapped teeth
  • Correction of several mild to moderate bite problems (overbite, underbite, and open bite as examples)
  • Progress checks every 4 to 6 weeks with Dr. Idriss
  • Few to no dietary restrictions
  • Easy oral hygiene (just take out your aligners, brush and floss your teeth, rinse the aligners and replace)
  • Testimony of millions of patients who have had their smiles recreated by Invisalign since the late nineties

The case for Invisalign is compelling. If you’re interested, come in for a consultation. Call to schedule a convenient time.

As an Invisalign Preferred Provider, Dr. Idriss performs complete oral examinations on all her prospective patients. A special three-dimensional scan (via the iTero Element Scanner) tells her if Invisalign is right for you. You’ll even view your finished smile in just a few minutes!
