Do you want straighter, healthier teeth, but don’t want to show off a mouthful of metal for months or years to get there? Thankfully, there’s a clear path towards a straighter smile with Invisalign in Tyler. Dr. Javier Perez has helped countless teens and adults improve their appearance and their oral health with this revolutionary orthodontic treatment without the need for traditional bulky and uncomfortable metal braces. Read on below to learn more about this unique process, then give us a call to schedule your consultation and discover if Invisalign is right for you!
Instead of relying on metal wires and brackets that are attached to the teeth, Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gently push teeth into place. Each custom-made aligner represents a step on your journey towards a straighter smile. Thanks to the clear, biocompatible plastic they’re crafted from, they’re virtually invisible when worn. What’s more, since they’re removable, you can continue to enjoy all your favorite foods and activities all throughout your treatment!
Once you and your Tyler dentist have determined that Invisalign is right for you, we’ll take impressions of your mouth and use them to plan your treatment. A special software will allow us to predict the best way to shift your teeth into position and a series of aligners will be created. You’ll wear each set of aligners for 20-22 hours a day for about two weeks before moving onto the next set. Periodically, you’ll come visit us for a checkup so we can ensure that your treatment is going as planned.
Nearly anyone who wants a straighter smile is a good candidate for Invisalign! This orthodontic treatment is typically used to correct mild to moderate cases of:
Just like how no two smiles are exactly the same, Invisalign treatments will vary from patient to patient. There are several factors that will go into the final price, such as the complexity of your case and number or aligners needed. During your initial consultation, Dr. Perez will be able to give you a more personalized estimate of expenses and recommend ways to help make your treatment as affordable as possible. We accept most PPO dental insurances and our talented team has years of experience helping patients maximize their coverage, whether they’re in-network or not. We can also help you apply for financing through CareCredit, which can break down the cost of your treatment into payments that fit into your budget.
