Benefits of Invisalign & Straight Teeth
Great Grins Dental has chosen to offer the Invisalign teeth-straightening system because it fits with the lifestyle of most of our adult patients. The fact that Invisalign uses clear aligners that are also removable gives you the confidence to keep smiling during your treatment, as well as the freedom to take them out for special occasions, like when you want to consume your favorite foods/drinks or to brush and floss normally.
Innovative Design for Teeth Straightening
The Invisalign aligners are fabricated from smooth, safe, and clear plastic material that you can easily wear full-time.
Invisalign uses clear aligners that are virtually invisible, which means that most people won’t notice you’re wearing them. They’re so discreet that you can keep smiling throughout your treatment.
Quick Dental Visits During Dental Checks
Although you need a fresh set of clear aligners regularly to account for your changing bite, these dental appointments don’t take long. Actually, you only need to schedule an appointment with Dr. Fossum every 4 to 6 weeks to assess the progress of your treatment. There are no metal brackets to attach or wires to tighten or fix.
Custom-made for Different Cases of Misaligned Bite
Today, the Invisalign system can be used to treat most cases of malocclusions, from underbites and overcrowding to complex cases of tooth alignment and jaw problems. Week by week, with fresh aligners your teeth will smoothly move into place, according to the precise measurements that Dr. Fossum maps out for you.
Simple, Convenient Treatment
Invisalign fits with your lifestyle so your treatment doesn’t interrupt your normal routine for eating, brushing, or flossing. Moreover, you don’t have to worry about broken wires or damaged brackets piercing your tongue and other soft tissues.
Invisalign is a hygienic alternative to braces. The fact that they’re removable means that you can easily brush as you are used to after meals to prevent plaque buildup, and keep the aligners themselves clean.
Is Invisalign Right for You?
Invisalign is appropriate for the treatment of mild cases of teeth misalignment for teens and adults. But the only way to know if Invisalign is right for you is by scheduling a quick appointment with Dr. Fossum at Great Grins Dental in Austin. The dentist will examine your teeth and mouth and discuss with you the most appropriate treatments for your needs.

One of the reasons why Invisalign treatment is only recommended for adults is the high motivation factor required to wear the clear trays for at least 20 hours every day, 7 days a week, for the entire duration of treatment.
For successful Invisalign treatment and an improved smile, you need to not only find a skilled and experienced dentist, but also be patient with the treatment and committed to following the ongoing usage and maintenance requirements of the Invisalign aligner appliances as directed by your dentist.
