Transforming Smiles in San Antonio

Understanding Common Orthodontic Issues

Orthodontic problems can affect more than just the appearance of your smile; they can impact your overall oral health. Issues like crowding, gaps, overbites, underbites, and crossbites can lead to difficulties in cleaning teeth properly, which might increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. 

Misaligned teeth can also cause abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, difficulties in chewing, and even problems with speech. Addressing these issues is not just about aesthetics; it’s about maintaining the health and functionality of your mouth.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, custom-made aligners to gradually move your teeth into the desired position. Unlike traditional braces, these aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. Invisalign offers an aesthetic and convenient solution for those seeking to improve their smile without the appearance and constraints of metal braces.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign aligners are made from a flexible thermoplastic material uniquely developed for the Invisalign treatment plan. The process involves wearing a series of these aligners, each slightly different from the last, to gradually shift your teeth into place. The aligners are custom-made for your teeth, ensuring a comfortable, snug fit. As you progress through the series, your teeth will move little by little, week by week, towards their final position prescribed by your dentist.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear, custom-made aligners to straighten teeth. Unlike traditional braces, these aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small increments. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks before moving to the next set in the series. Over time, these aligners gradually shift your teeth into their desired position.

Is Invisalign treatment painful?

Invisalign treatment typically involves less discomfort than traditional braces. Some people may experience temporary discomfort or pressure for a few days at the beginning of each new stage of treatment as their teeth adjust to the new aligners.

Can anyone get Invisalign?

Invisalign is suitable for most teens and adults with various orthodontic issues, including crowded teeth, gaps, and certain bite problems. However, not everyone is a candidate for Invisalign, so it’s important to have a consultation with our dentists to determine if it’s the right choice for you.

How often do I need to wear my Invisalign aligners?

For the best results, Invisalign aligners should be worn for 20 to 22 hours a day. They should only be removed for eating, drinking anything other than water, brushing, and flossing.

How do I care for my Invisalign aligners?

To care for your Invisalign aligners, rinse them every night and brush them gently with a toothbrush. It's also important to maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly.

Will Invisalign affect my speech?

Some people may notice a slight lisp when they first start wearing Invisalign aligners. However, this is typically temporary and should disappear as you become accustomed to wearing the aligners.

How much does Invisalign cost?

The cost of Invisalign treatment varies depending on the complexity of the case and the length of treatment. At De Zavala Dental and Braces, we provide transparent pricing and discuss all financial options during your consultation.

Can I see how my teeth will look after Invisalign treatment?

Yes, during your consultation at De Zavala Dental and Braces, we use advanced 3D imaging technology to show you a virtual preview of how your teeth will move with each stage of treatment and how they will look after completing Invisalign.

How long does Invisalign treatment take?

In most cases, Invisalign treatment can be completed in just 12-18 months, making it a speedy option compared to traditional braces.

Are Invisalign aligners really invisible?

For optimal results, wear your aligners for 20-22 hours a day, removing them only for eating, brushing, and flossing.
