Invisalign® from Jeff Colquitt, DDS in Dallas, TX
If you’ve been wanting a straighter smile, you’re probably aware of the different treatment options available -- from the various kinds of metal braces to more modern options, such as clear aligner therapy. For adult patients with misaligned teeth, clear braces have become the most popular way to treat alignment issues for a healthier, more beautiful smile.
Our Dallas dental office provides the most trusted name in clear braces, Invisalign®. With help from our advanced Invisalign® dentist, Dr. Jeff Colquitt, we give patients the smiles of their dreams.
Will Invisalign® Work for Me?
Clear braces from Invisalign® typically work best for patients with mild to moderate orthodontic problems such as:
• Crooked teeth
• Tilted or rotated teeth
• Too much space between
• Overlapping teeth
Severe cases of misalignment are best treated with metal braces, but these kinds of cases aren’t the average; most patients who are looking for straighter teeth can benefit from Invisalign®. Having a straight smile gives both your confidence and oral health a boost! Well-aligned teeth are easier to brush and floss, so you can reduce your chances for developing gum disease and dental caries. Getting Invisalign® gives you a smile you can feel proud of and encourages better oral health in the long run.
Is Invisalign® Comfortable?
Unlike metal braces that use metal brackets bonded onto teeth, there are no sharp edges or metal points in the Invisalign® system that will cut the inside of your mouth. In addition to comfort, Invisalign® brings convenience. Invisalign® aligners are made from smooth plastic and pop in and out of place when you need them to.
The process for getting Invisalign® is also more comfortable than that of metal braces. When you visit Dr. Colquitt for Invisalign in Dallas, he’ll take pictures and impressions of your smile, which are then sent to Invisalign®’s laboratories to begin the fabrication process. To compare, getting fitted for metal braces involves putting metal bands around back teeth and stringing wires through brackets. Invisalign® provides for a comfortable and easy fitting process, as well as discreet and smooth treatment.
The Cost of Invisalign®
With the rise in popularity and availability of clear aligner therapy, Invisalign® is now comparable, or less, in cost to that of metal braces; opting for invisible orthodontics no longer breaks the bank. As always, it’s important to speak to your insurance provider and our office for more information about any costs associated with your treatment plan.
