The Invisalign® system utilizes a series of customized, clear plastic aligners that gradually realign teeth. Invisalign is available to adult and teenage orthodontic patients who want to straighten their teeth almost invisibly. Take a look at our Invisalign Before & After Gallery to see the great results our patients have achieved. Give us a call if you’d like to discuss whether or not you or your child are good candidates.
Invisalign is the answer to correcting misaligned teeth without the use of conspicuous metal wires and brackets. Many patients want straighter smiles, but can’t imagine spending 18 to 24 months with traditional braces. For this reason, we may recommend Invisalign clear aligners so patients can straighten their teeth discreetly.
Because Invisalign clear aligners are removable, you can still eat and drink whatever you want, and you’ll brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth. Plus, unlike metal braces, Invisalign plastic aligners won’t cause painful mouth abrasions. And because adjustments are unnecessary with Invisalign—you simply change aligners every one to two weeks — you won’t have to come in to see us as often. No impressions for Invisalign patients at Fretty Orthodontics. Straight teeth, no braces, no impressions!
Invisalign Teen eliminates the embarrassment of both crooked teeth and metal braces in yearbook photos, prom pictures and Facebook profiles. With Invisalign Teen, we can give your teenager a beautiful smile without forcing him or her to be remembered as "the kid with the braces." This revolutionary method straightens teeth using a series of clear, plastic aligners. Invisalign Teen aligners are removable and clear, so your teenager’s smile gradually becomes straighter without anyone knowing. Plus, eating habits don’t have to change, and normal brushing and flossing will maintain healthy gums and teeth. And without metal wires or brackets there are no painful mouth abrasions. We were the first orthodontic office in East Texas that utilized the revolutionary iTero digital scanner, which means no messy impressions.
Now, your Invisalign treatment can begin more easily with the help of the iTero Scanner. In the past, detailed information about a patient’s mouth and teeth could only be obtained by fitting a large tray filled with impression material into the patient’s mouth. As you can imagine, this technique is both time-consuming and difficult for patients, who often fear gagging or accidentally swallowing any excess impression material. Now, with the help of the iTero Scanner, we can create a much more thorough, detailed map of your mouth. No discomfort or messy impression required!
