Great News for students who want their teeth straightened but don’t want to wear traditional braces. The Invisalign system has proven to be a wonderful alternative to braces for teenagers says Dr. David Wadler, the leading Invisalign orthodontist in the Houston Area. “This is a revolutionary way to straighten teeth without braces”. Upon initial examination, Dr. Wadler decides if invisalign is right for you. He will write a treatment plan and take a non- invasive Oral Scan of your teeth which are then submitted along with x-rays and photographs to Invisalign. Using the latest advances in computer technology, Invisalign carefully translates Dr. Wadler’s instructions into a series of precisely customized aligners. You then wear each aligner for two weeks, moving teeth gradually-week by week, millimeter by millimeter—until you have achieved the intended result: straight teeth. Generally, you visit your Orthodontist less often than you would with braces and the length of time is about the same and often shorter. Other benefits of Invisalign, include no lip or cheek irritation, no emergency visits to fix broken brackets, less tooth soreness, no food restriction-eat what ever you like since you remove the aligner to eat. Oral hygiene is much easier, again since the aligners are not worn eating.
