How Does Invisalign Work?
Instead of the age-old orthodontic model, patients who choose Invisalign will receive a custom-made set of clear plastic aligners.

Get a Straight Smile with the Clear Choice
Although you have always wanted to correct your alignment concerns, the thought of wearing dark-colored brackets and wires for several months has caused you to put off getting a straight smile. What if you could get the results you want using an alternative to traditional braces? Now you can with Invisalign in Lake Highlands. You can enjoy a discreet and effective treatment to invest in your confidence and your oral health.
Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces
Traditional braces pull your teeth into alignment by attaching brackets and wires to your teeth. This method is effective for correcting even the most complex bite and alignment issues; however, it does involve certain disadvantages. Not only are conventional braces highly visible, but you will have to avoid certain foods, make time in your schedule for frequent appointments, and there can be irritation.
To resolve many of the common complaints about braces, many adults are now turning to Invisalign. Clear plastic aligners are worn over your teeth to gradually move them into position.

The high-quality plastic is also very comfortable, so you will not need to worry about any irritation to the inside of your lips or cheeks. You can also remove the aligners to enjoy your favorite foods or when brushing or flossing your teeth.
Your dentist in Lake Highlands, Dr. Miller advises you how long to wear each aligner. On average, it takes about 12 months to complete your series. During this time, you spend less time in our office because you do not need appointments for adjustments.
Cost of Invisalign
Often, Invisalign costs about the same as traditional braces. There is no set price tag because the amount you pay is based on your individual treatment plan, such as how many aligners are needed. To help lower the cost, you may be able to use your dental insurance. Third-party financing with CareCredit can be used to pay any remaining balance.
Choosing an orthodontic treatment is a big decision. As your cosmetic dentist in Lake Highlands, Dr. Miller understands you have plenty of questions. To help you make the best choice for your smile, here are the answers to your top questions.
How many aligners do I need?
The amount needed varies depending on your individual treatment plan. During your consultation, Dr. Miller explains your treatment process and how long it is expected to take.
Can I eat with the aligners?
It is best to only have water while wearing them to prevent them from losing their translucent appearance and damage.
How do I care for them?
You brush and floss your teeth as you normally do, but you will need to take time every day to clean the aligners with a clear antibacterial soap and a soft brush.
How long do I need to wear the aligners?
It is recommended you wear the aligners for at least 22 hours per day.
Are the aligners uncomfortable?
Your aligners are custom-fit, so there is no slipping when speaking or smiling. They are also smooth to prevent irritation to your soft tissues.
