Our Invisalign treatment offers a revolutionary approach to straightening teeth, using clear aligners that are virtually invisible.

Let’s explore the incredible possibilities that Invisalign has to offer and unlock your child’s radiant, straight smile like never before!

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a cutting-edge orthodontic treatment that offers a discreet and comfortable alternative to traditional braces. It utilizes a series of clear, removable aligners that are custom-made for your child’s teeth. These aligners are made from a smooth, BPA-free plastic material that fits snugly over their teeth, almost like a thin, transparent mouthguard.

The process begins with a comprehensive consultation at Alamo Ranch Children’s Dentistry & Braces, where our orthodontic specialists will evaluate your child’s dental condition and determine if Invisalign is the right choice for them. If deemed suitable, we will create a personalized treatment plan using advanced digital imaging technology to map out the desired tooth movements. Your child will receive a series of aligners, each designed to gradually shift their teeth into proper alignment. They will typically wear each set of aligners for about one to two weeks before progressing to the next set in the series. As your child moves through the aligner stages, their teeth will gradually shift, guided by the precise and calculated movements built into the aligners.

Benefits of Clear Aligners

  • Discreet Appearance: Clear aligners are virtually invisible when worn, making them a discreet option for orthodontic treatment. Your child can confidently go about their daily activities, such as school, social events, and photos, without feeling self-conscious about their braces. 
  • Comfortable Fit: Clear aligners are custom-made to fit your child’s teeth comfortably. They are smooth and don’t have any sharp or protruding edges like traditional braces. This ensures a comfortable fit and minimizes irritation or discomfort typically associated with braces. Your child can experience a more pleasant orthodontic journey with aligners.
  • Removability: Clear aligners are removable, allowing your child to take them out during meals. This means they can enjoy their favorite foods without any dietary restrictions that traditional braces may require. It also makes brushing and flossing easier since your child can maintain their regular oral hygiene routine without any obstructions.
  • Improved Oral Hygiene: With clear aligners, maintaining good oral hygiene is simpler compared to braces. Your child can easily remove the aligners to brush and floss their teeth thoroughly, reducing the risk of plaque buildup, tooth decay, and gum disease. This promotes optimal oral health throughout the orthodontic treatment.
  • Fewer Orthodontic Appointments: Clear aligners often require fewer in-person orthodontic appointments compared to traditional braces. Instead of regular adjustments, your child will receive a series of aligners that they will change at home according to the prescribed schedule. This can be convenient for busy families, minimizing the time spent at the orthodontist’s office.
  • Reduced Discomfort: Clear aligners generally cause less discomfort compared to traditional braces. While your child may experience some initial tightness or pressure when switching to a new set of aligners, it is typically milder and shorter-lived compared to the adjustments made with braces. The smooth edges and custom fit of clear aligners contribute to a more comfortable orthodontic experience.
