We Perfect Smiles With Our Irving, TX Invisalign Treatment

At Travers Orthodontics, we pride ourselves on the excellent orthodontic treatment we provide to children, teenagers, and adults living in Irving, Texas and the surrounding areas of Dallas, Coppell, Valley Ranch, and Farmers Branch. We love perfecting smiles and providing our patients with the individualized care and superior service they deserve!

We understand that one of the main reasons many adults and teens don’t want to get braces is because of the stigma associated with conventional metal braces. Some people would rather not undergo orthodontic treatment at all if they have to be treated with visible braces that are cemented to their teeth for several months. That’s why we offer our patients many types of discreet braces including Irving, TX clear braces and the nearly invisible Invisalign clear aligners that so many of our patients love!

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign works to straighten your teeth without any wires or brackets, using a series of clear, customized, and removable plastic aligners. The aligners are virtually undetectable, which means that most people won’t even realize that you’re improving your smile. And the removable nature of the aligners means your treatment will be very convenient. You can take the aligners out when eating and drinking and when performing oral hygiene. You can even remove them briefly for those special occasions like job interviews or school and family photos, as long as you put them right back in when done.

How Irving, TX Invisalign Treatment Works

The Invisalign System revolutionized orthodontics because it did away with the need for using metal brackets, bands, and wires to move teeth. Even though Invisalign aligners look completely different from regular braces, they actually work in much the same way as braces as the aligners put gentle, constant pressure on the teeth to move them into their most optimal positions.

While Invisalign can be used to treat many different types of mild to moderate orthodontic problems, it cannot be used to treat more complex problems. The only way to find out if you can be treated with Invisalign is to visit us for a thorough exam. If Dr. Travers tells you that you have a problem that can be successfully treated with Invisalign aligners, then we’ll proceed and get you started right away!

At your first appointment to get Invisalign, we’ll take some detailed images of your teeth that Dr. Travers will use to plan out your treatment. Once she has carefully devised your detailed treatment plan, she’ll send the plan along with the images we took of your teeth to the Invisalign lab to have your custom aligners made. 

When your aligners arrive at our office, we’ll have you come in to pick them up so you can begin your treatment. We’ll tell you to wear each set of aligners for about two weeks and to keep them in your mouth for at least 22 hours each day. Once the two weeks are up, you’ll simply move on to the next set of aligners in the series, and so on, until your treatment is finished. Once you’re done wearing Invisalign, you’ll be left with a healthy and attractive smile you’ll be thrilled to show off wherever you go!
