Dr. Christopher Naranjo of Greenbelt Dental Health in Austin, Texas is available to help new and current patients with a wide range of dental concerns, including the misalignment of a smile. Spaces, gaps, and crooked teeth can impact your overall gum health, which in turn can affect your overall health. Straight teeth permit your toothbrush to do a better job of cleaning, allowing less plaque and bacteria to build up. This means fewer bacteria that can be transmitted to the rest of your body. Many jaw related issues such as TMD can be related to a poor alignment of the top arch to the bottom arch. Allowing an even distribution of forces can help your jaw and the muscles around it. Your teeth may also have you feeling self-conscious about how you look when smiling, laughing, and speaking with others. Having straight teeth also provides wonderful aesthetic results. Instead of hiding your smile because of its imperfections, schedule a consultation with Dr. Naranjo and see if you are a good candidate for orthodontic treatment. Fortunately, you no longer have to deal with metal brackets and wires to obtain an attractive smile. This is thanks to clear aligner therapy called Invisalign.
What is Invisalign, and how does it work?
Our team describes Invisalign as a clear aligner therapy used as an alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments. Instead of gluing brackets to the teeth and connecting them with a wire for movement, we use composite bonding and a plastic tray instead. This tray is custom fabricated for the patient and fits snug over the dental arch. It gently pushes the teeth into alignment within the dental arch without metal appliances, ensuring a beautiful smile even during treatment.
Why choose Invisalign?
Many patients choose Invisalign because it is discreet. When in place within the dental arch, the trays are hard to distinguish from the natural teeth because they fit so close around the arch. This makes them so effective in achieving the results patients desire while helping them feel confident with their smile during treatment. Below are just a few of the more common reasons why patients chose Invisalign treatment with Dr. Christopher Naranjo instead of traditional orthodontics:
- Discreet and customized treatment
- Fast results
- Easy compliance
