Do you think that having a mouth full of metal is better than having misaligned, crooked teeth? What if there was a way to correct your crooked, misaligned teeth without using any metal in your mouth? Cosmetic and general dentist J. Brian Porsch, DDS can help you correct your crooked, misaligned teeth without using metal braces. The procedure is called Invisalign, which is being offered at Porsch Dental in North Garland, Texas.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that can re-align your teeth without using metal braces. This treatment has revolutionized the world of orthodontics. Now, patients are presented with a new option aside from metal braces. It entails wearing a series of custom-made plastic aligners which are clear. The aligners help position each tooth to their optimal positions. Patients who refused to have braces before are now considering Invisalign as an alternative solution to correct their misaligned or crooked teeth.
You can flash that confident smile minus the unsightly metal braces when you use Invisalign. You can call Porsch Dental right now to schedule an appointment. You may also set an appointment online.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign is an alternative to metal braces. Invisalign is aligners made of clear plastic and must be fitted over the teeth that need correction. The aligners will correct the position of your teeth and get them back to their optimal positions in due time.
20 hours is the recommended duration that you need to keep wearing the aligners each day. However, you are allowed to take them off each time you need to eat and brush your teeth. Those are the only two occasions that you are allowed to remove your aligners. Otherwise, you need to keep them inserted over your teeth.
Does Invisalign provide better benefits than metal braces?
Invisalign is famous for the ease and comfort that it provides. This is the primary reason behind its rising popularity. It is the top choice of patients, particularly young adults, who want to straighten their teeth. Invisalign also presents more benefits than other traditional orthodontic procedures, such as metal braces.
Invisalign presents the following benefits:
- It is practically invisible so that no one will notice you are wearing your Invisalign trays unless that person is right next to you. People will definitely see your teeth, unlike when you are wearing metal braces that cover your teeth.
- It is more comfortable to wear than metal braces. It’s all due to the smooth plastic material of Invisalign. It has no sharp metal that may cause irritation to your mouth.
- It is convenient to remove each time you need to eat or clean your teeth. It is also easy to put it back again.
- Invisalign treatments give a faster result than most orthodontic procedures.
How will I know if I’m the right candidate for Invisalign?
- You need Invisalign if you have any of the following teeth problems
- Rotated teeth
- Space between teeth
- Crowded teeth
Invisalign can effectively and efficiently fix these dental misalignments of mild to moderate degrees. Invisalign may not be the best solution for teeth that have significant orthodontic and alignment issues. Dr. Porsch may suggest another solution or treatment that can best fix the problem.

What are the things that I should expect when I undergo an Invisalign treatment?
Dr. Porsch will check your teeth first to know whether Invisalign is the most suitable solution to your teeth problem. The dentist usually creates physical impressions of your teeth or generates 3D images with the help of a digital scanner. With the help of these images or impressions of your teeth, Dr. Porsch can now draw the most fitting treatment plan specific to your needs.
If Invisalign is the answer, Dr. Porsch will customize clear, plastic aligners that are specially created for your teeth. The aligners will move your teeth gradually into their proper places or specific positions as you keep wearing them. As your teeth gradually get back to their places, new aligners are created to continue making progress. It will continue until you flash a confident, beaming smile.
