Thanks to modern dental technology, having a straighter smile has never been easier! One remarkable example of that technology would be Invisalign® clear plastic aligners. The concept behind Invisalign® is to straighten the patient’s teeth without the embarrassment of traditional metal braces.
With these clear plastic aligners, you can enjoy a straighter, more beautiful smile in a matter months – and, best of all, no one will ever have to know that you’re wearing any type of dental appliance at all! Dr. Jaros is pleased to offer Invisalign® technology to her patients throughout the Austin, TX, area.
How Invisalign® Works
The Invisalign® process begins when Dr. Jaros provides you with your first set of custom-made, clear plastic aligner trays. You can remove the trays to eat meals and brush and floss your teeth, but you need to wear them for at least 22 hours each day. Because you can remove the trays, you can feel free to enjoy all the foods you normally would, and brushing and flossing your teeth is just as easy as ever.
After you receive your first set of trays, Dr. Jaros will provide you with a new set every two or three weeks. Slowly but surely, over a period of several months, your teeth shift into their straighter positions. Unlike metal braces, which can be uncomfortable to wear and sometimes irritate the patient’s cheeks and gums, Invisalign® trays are quite comfortable.
