What is Invisalign?

As we talked about, choosing which treatment is best for you is a big choice. Your orthodontist is an expert and can recommend the best course of action. But we do frequently get questions about Invisalign costs and past patients’ success with Invisalign treatment.

There are many benefits to Invisalign. Invisalign first and foremost is invisible! Nobody will know you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment unless you tell them. Invisalign’s clear aligners are invisible in your mouth. Invisalign treatment is completely customized, comfortable, and effective. Because Invisalign is removable, brushing and flossing remain easy, and there are no dietary restrictions. So, to answer “What can I eat with Invisalign?” anything!  

Can I get Invisalign?

Your orthodontic specialist will be able to tell you if you are a candidate for treatment with Invisalign. Invisalign can be used for kids and adults, Invisalign Teen is available for Invisalign for kids. Your orthodontists at Greater Houston Orthodontics are in the top 1% of Invisalign providers and can make sure if you can use Invisalign. 

What Issues Can Invisalign Help With?

The beauty of Invisalign is that it can be used to help with almost any orthodontic issue. From overbites to underbites, Invisalign has you covered. Just ask your orthodontist if it’s right for you!

Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional metal and wire braces. A consultation with your orthodontist where they expertly identify any problems with your bite is essential to your treatment, and Invisalign can fix those issues!

Invisalign Pain

Invisalign pain is something we’re asked about a lot. With any orthodontic appliance, your teeth and bones are moving around, trying to make your smile straight and beautiful! Naturally, this movement can cause mild soreness – especially after an adjustment or switching your set of Invisalign trays. Luckily, this soreness should only last a couple of days at most, and there are many things you can do to lessen the pain. Over-the-counter painkillers, orthodontic wax, and eating soft foods after appointments are easy ways to make your adjustment easier and lessen pain.
