Invisalign – The Clear Alternative to Traditional Braces
Dr. Mohan and Dr. Veena offer Invisalign to both adults and teens in the San Antonio, Pleasanton, and New Braunfels areas. With its 15+ years of clinical application, Invisalign has been successfully helping thousands of people to straighten their teeth with a more comfortable solution than traditional braces.
Invisalign is a great choice for those who want to discreetly improve their smiles – the clear plastic aligners are virtually invisible, so you won’t have to worry about people noticing your orthodontic work. The aligners are also removable, allowing you to take them out for special occasions or for cleaning – which makes it easier to keep your teeth healthy. Plus, Invisalign aligners are comfortable, with no metal wires or brackets unlike traditional braces that could irritate your mouth.
When it comes to Invisalign, you can count on Dr. Mohan and Dr. Veena for the best care and superior results. With their extensive experience providing Invisalign in South Texas, you can rest assured that you will be in good hands.
Planning your Invisalign Treatment
When visiting Elite Dental for an Invisalign consultation, Dr. Mohan or Dr. Veena will first evaluate your teeth and bite to determine the best custom treatment plan for you. Depending on the severity of the case, you may need traditional metal braces and bracket braces systems. If Invisalign is the optimal choice, they will create a personalized plan specifically tailored to your needs.
At Elite Dental, 3D digital scans of your teeth will be taken to construct your custom aligners. Made from smooth and nearly invisible plastic, these aligners are a great alternative to regular braces. During treatment, you will switch to a new aligner every two weeks, and your teeth will gradually move into the desired positions. Regular check-ins with Dr. Mohan or Dr. Veena will ensure that you have a beautiful, straight smile in 6 months to a year.
Unleash Your Smile's Potential with Invisalign: Here's How It Works!
Treating your teeth with Invisalign can take around one year for adults, which is comparable to the duration of traditional braces for teens. Unlike braces, Invisalign’s clear aligners give you the ability to track your teeth-straightening progress along the way.
Invisalign is often employed to address a range of dental issues such as overcrowding, gaps, overbites, and underbites; the treatment duration will differ depending on the seriousness of the condition. You’ll receive new aligners every two weeks to help your teeth slowly and delicately move into their desired positions.
During the period of treatment, you have to go for regular check-ups with your dentist or orthodontist to observe your progress. After your treatment, you’ll have to wear a retainer to keep your newly-straightened teeth in place.
Custom Aligners Created from your Treatment Plan
Dr. Mohan and Dr. Veena have created a tailor-made treatment plan and instructions for Align Technology aligners. These clear, BPA-free plastic aligners fit comfortably around your teeth. For maximum results, they recommend wearing the aligners for 20-22 hours each day and taking them out for eating and brushing.
It is important to follow the instructions Dr. Mohan and Dr. Veena have provided. Make sure to switch to the next aligner in the series when instructed, in order to ensure your teeth are moving in the right direction. Additionally, it’s important to clean your teeth and aligners regularly and to avoid tobacco use while wearing the aligners. Following the guidance of your doctor will ensure the best results from your Align Technology treatment.
Clear Aligners Gradually Straighten your Teeth
Approximately every two weeks, you’ll get your brand-new custom aligners. Gradually, each new set will move your teeth toward the ideal position. To monitor your progress, you’ll need to visit Dr. Mohan or Dr. Veena every six weeks. When your treatment is finished, you’ll have a dazzling smile.
When you first wear your aligners, you may feel some discomfort, but this is to be expected as your teeth adjust to their new positions. With the proper care and regular check-ins with your orthodontist, you’ll be showing off your straight and lovely smile before you know it.
What Invisalign Can Fix: Common Dental Problems
Invisalign, a popular clear aligner system, is an effective solution for many orthodontic problems. Here are some of the issues that Invisalign can correct:
Teeth crowding occurs when there is not enough space in the jawbone to accommodate all the teeth, causing them to overlap and become misaligned. Invisalign aligners can gently shift the teeth into their correct positions, creating a straighter and more even smile.
An overbite is when the upper teeth extend beyond the lower teeth. This can cause jaw and joint problems, as well as excessive wear and irritation of the teeth and gums due to constant contact. Invisalign can gradually move the teeth into a more balanced position, reducing the overbite and improving the alignment of the jaws.
An underbite is when the lower teeth extend beyond the upper teeth, creating an imbalanced bite. This can cause stress and strain on the lower teeth and jaw, leading to discomfort and even pain. Invisalign can correct this issue by repositioning the teeth, helping to relieve stress on the jaw, and promoting proper alignment.
Gaps in Teeth:
Gaps or spaces between teeth can be unsightly and can also lead to the shifting of other teeth, causing further alignment problems. Invisalign can close gaps and create a more uniform smile, reducing the risk of gum disease and other oral health issues.
An open bite occurs when the front teeth do not meet when the mouth is closed, causing difficulty with chewing and potentially leading to jaw problems. Invisalign can improve this condition by gradually shifting the teeth into a more optimal position, allowing for better alignment and function of the jaw.
A crossbite is when the upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth when the jaws are closed. This can lead to rapid tooth wear, gum disease, and even bone loss. Invisalign can correct this issue by aligning the teeth and jaws, improving overall oral health and function.
In summary, Invisalign can correct a variety of orthodontic issues, including teeth crowding, overbite, underbite, gaps in teeth, open bite, and crossbite. By addressing these issues, Invisalign can improve the appearance of the smile, promote better oral health, and alleviate discomfort and pain associated with misaligned teeth and jaws.
