At first, the idea of dental braces may seem unattractive or uncomfortable. This is among the most common complaints from our patients when dealing with orthodontic treatment. However, in order to address this issue, our dentist in Plano TX has begun offering Invisalign braces. They are virtually undetectable, so hardly anyone will realize you’re wearing them.
If you’ve been considering orthodontics, you may also be discouraged by the unaesthetic look of traditional braces. Well, at the office of Kirk E. Kooker, DDS, we will be able to straighten your teeth without wires and brackets, but instead by using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners from Invisalign. Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your dentist in Plano TX. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks, only being taken out to eat, brush, and floss, and is then replaced with a new one that will further shift your teeth towards their final alignment. This can be done in as few as 12 or as many as 48 aligners, depending on the needs of each individual patient. Furthermore, unlike braces, you may eat whatever you like as long as you remove the aligners before eating.
So if you’re dreaming of a straighter, more beautiful smile, but are discouraged by the discomfort or unaesthetic look of traditional braces, then let our team make your dream come true.
