Online PR News – 10-November-2010 – – Plano, Texas – Dr. Darren Dickson, a dentist in Plano, Texas specializing in implant, cosmetic, restorative and sedation dentistry, is pleased to announce that patients of his practice, the Plano Center for Aesthetic Dentistry, can now enjoy straighter teeth without the need for traditional braces. Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that is approved by the FDA to provide an alternative to metal braces with similar results.
Invisalign works by using a series of clear, custom-fabricated mouthpieces, or aligners, to gently move teeth into proper positions. Teeth are straightened in the same time frame, or even more quickly than traditional braces and are barely noticeable when being worn. The clear aligners are comfortable and can easily be removed whenever needed, such as during meals or if the patient is attending a social or business function. Invisalign in Plano, TX has become a popular choice for adults looking for straighter teeth and a more attractive smile without the need to wear unappealing looking braces.
“Patients interested in perfecting their smile may require teeth alignment to achieve the look that they desire,” explains Dr. Dickson. “Up until recently, however, people were only left with the option of wearing traditional braces and many didn’t want to do so. Invisalign gives patients, primarily adults, an easy, comfortable and virtually unnoticeable way to straighten their teeth and achieve the smile they’ve always dreamed of.”
The Invisalign system begins with a 3D image of a patient’s existing teeth and a depiction of what the patient’s teeth will look like at the conclusion of the treatment. A lab then fabricates a series of clear plastic aligners that gradually move teeth from their original positioning to their final positioning in small increments. Every two weeks, a new aligner is placed over the teeth to continue the process of moving the teeth until they are finally straight. There are no appointments needed for adjusting the braces, which cuts down on the amount of time that patients need to visit the office. This is another benefit for busy adults that do not have time for continuous appointments.
“Invisalign is a great option for adults that are looking for straighter teeth without the hassles of braces,” explains the Plano cosmetic dentist. “It is just one of the ways that we are helping residents in Plano achieve beautiful smiles.”
