Invisalign in Waco have helped many patients in the Waco area achieve the smile of their dreams. Invisalign is a proven procedure that can straighten your smile in as little as six months, depending on your dental concerns. 

 

How Does Invisalign Work?

To get Invisalign placed on your teeth, Dr. Chad Latino will first have a consultation appointment with you. During this appointment, you will discuss your dental goals. 

Then, Dr. Latino will take an impression of your teeth. After the image, your dentist will receive your custom Invisalign at Chad Latino DDS. 

During your next appointment, you will try on the aligners. Over the next few months, you will wear the aligners for 22 hours a day and visit Chad Latino DDS every few weeks for a new set of aligners. 

Dr. Latino, Waco’s leading Invisalign provider, will monitor your progress to ensure a healthy and beautiful transition to your new smile. 

 

What Types of Dental Concerns Can Invisalign Treat?

Invisalign can treat almost every case that traditional braces can treat. Invisalign can treat overbites, underbites, crossbites, gap teeth, open bites, and crowded teeth. 

As you can see, Invisalign is not only used for cosmetic reasons. It is also a necessary treatment to maintain the health of your teeth. For example, a common dental concern is crowded teeth. If you have crowded teeth, you may experience difficulty flossing and brushing each portion of your tooth. This concern is expected because the teeth are so tightly packed together it can be hard to reach every surface. Once you straighten your crowded teeth with Invisalign, you can get every surface of the tooth and more effectively clean. With the ability to perform good oral hygiene, you will decrease your risk for tooth decay and other dental concerns. 

 

Is Invisalign Comfortable?

Many patients want to know if Invisalign in Waco are comfortable to wear. Invisalign uses a patented SmartTrack technology that makes the aligners both comfortable to wear and easy to remove. 

SmartTrack technology has four main benefits. First, the technology improves the aligner’s ability to control the movement of the smile. The aligner can carefully move your teeth into position with specially made plastic.

Along with this, the SmartTrack technology increases the predictability of how the aligner moves your teeth. The last two benefits are comfort and a gentle force. The aligners are easy to wear with the comfortable plastic material while gently moving your teeth. 

 

Other Benefits of Invisalign

There are several benefits of Invisalign in Waco. Another everyday use of Invisalign is they give patients the freedom to eat what they like while straightening their teeth. With traditional braces, you cannot eat hard or sticky foods because they could get stuck in between the brackets and archwires, increasing the risk of damaging the braces and increasing the risk of dental decay. 

Patients also love Invisalign in Waco  because they repair your smile discreetly. The aligners are clear and have a low profile making them hard to spot initially. 

 

How Can I Keep My Smile Straight After Using Invisalign? 

After your Invisalign treatment, Dr. Chad Latino will recommend that you use a retainer to maintain a straight smile. Although you can use any custom-made retainer, we recommend using the retainer by Invisalign, called Vivera. With a retainer, you can keep your straight smile for a lifetime.
