Dental technology has come a long way in the last several years. Some of the most impressive advancements have involved methods used to straighten teeth.
Dr. Bowcutt is pleased to provide his Cedar Park, TX, patients with several of those techniques. One of the most popular is Invisalign®. This cutting-edge technology allows dental patients to achieve a straighter, more attractive smile. And best of all – no one will ever know that you’re wearing a dental appliance!
Here’s How Invisalign® Works
The Invisalign® method is based on clear plastic aligner trays. These trays are custom-made for each patient, and can be removed to allow the wearer to eat meals as well as brush and floss. This means that patients can enjoy whatever foods they like, and they can maintain their normal daily oral hygiene routine. They do, however, need to wear the aligner trays for a minimum of 22 hours every day. Periodically – typically every two to three weeks — Dr. Bowcutt will provide the patient with a new set of aligner trays. Slowly, over the course of several months, the patient’s teeth gradually straighten. And the biggest advantage of all for most people is the fact that these aligner trays are virtually invisible!
Are You a Good Candidate for Invisalign®?
While there’s no doubt that Invisalign® is an effective way to straighten teeth, it may not be the right choice for everyone. It all depends on your current oral health. Dr. Bowcutt will assess your situation and recommend which teeth-straightening method is best for you.
