Do you have crooked front teeth? Do gaps and uneven spaces ruin the balance and symmetry of your smile? Do you wish there was a solution to correct these flaws without committing to years in metal braces?

Invisalign clear braces in Temple, TX are a convenient option for straightening crooked or crowded teeth without metal braces. Instead of brackets and wires attached to your teeth, Invisalign clear plastic aligners gently nudge your teeth into the desired position in as little as a year.

Our patients love the convenience of straightening teeth with Invisalign, but they especially appreciate these benefits:

#1: No Uncomfortable Metal

Metal braces are still an excellent choice in many cases, but they detract from your smile. The brackets and wires also cause irritation and discomfort as they rub against your cheeks and lips.

However, treatment with Invisalign eliminates this discomfort because the aligners fit your teeth perfectly, and the smooth plastic won’t irritate your mouth.

#2: Removable Aligner Trays

With traditional braces, the metal brackets stay on your teeth for the duration of treatment. But since Invisalign clear braces are removable, you can take them out to brush and floss thoroughly and continue to enjoy the foods you love.

If you have a big event coming up, feel free to take out your aligners. Otherwise, remove them only for meals and oral hygiene. You chose Invisalign for the fast results, so be sure to wear them at least 22 hours a day to achieve your goals of a straighter smile faster.

#3: Easier Oral Hygiene

Metal brackets and wires attached to your teeth make brushing and flossing a challenge for most people. And if you’re not cleaning your teeth adequately, you are at increased risk for cavities and gum disease.

With Invisalign, however, you can remove the aligners when it’s time to brush and floss. You’ll get the most out of your oral hygiene efforts, and when you finish treatment, you’ll have a beautifully aligned, healthy smile.
