Adult Orthodontics and Aligners

June 9, 2020

Far too many adults decide to live with crooked teeth rather than face the prospect of wearing braces. Fortunately, Invisalign, an innovative orthodontic treatment offered by Drs. Jay Ghosh and Trent Lofgren, your orthodontists in McKinney and Allen, TX, can straighten your smile discreetly.

Invisalign Offers a Novel Approach to Orthodontic Treatment

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign doesn’t use wires and brackets to reposition teeth. The system relies on removable aligner trays worn over the teeth to realign your smile. The trays place constant, gentle pressure on teeth, slowing changing their alignment.

Using CAD/CAM software and digital images and impressions of your mouth, your orthodontist creates a 3D image of your mouth. The image is used to design your trays and can be manipulated to show the effects of each stage of your treatment.

You’ll receive a series of trays and will wear each tray in the series for about two weeks.

Thanks to Invisalign, you’ll enjoy

  • No Major Changes to Your Smile During Treatment: Traditional braces are effective, but they’re definitely very noticeable. Invisalign offers a much more subtle approach to orthodontic treatment.
  • Improved Comfort: Invisalign aligner trays are made of comfortable plastic that helps you avoid gum irritation.
  • Simple Oral Hygiene Routine: You won’t need special tools or an elaborate cleaning ritual when you choose Invisalign. In fact, your usual oral hygiene routine won’t change all. Before brushing or flossing, you’ll remove your trays, then brush or floss as usual.
  • No Changes to Your Diet: Hard or tough foods must be avoided when wearing traditional braces due to concerns about damage. Since you’ll take your trays out before you eat, you won’t have to eliminate any of your favorite foods.
  • A Short Treatment Period: Your treatment period may be surprisingly short. Many adults only need to wear their aligners for six months or a little longer. During a visit to either one of our Allen or McKinney dental offices, your dentist will explain the optimum wearing schedule for your orthodontic issues.
