Invisalign in Houston Tx
What is Invisalign and how does Invisalign work
Dr. Fisher is awarded Invisalign® Preferred Provider year after year. Dr. Fisher’s expertise is fixing bad bites and so there is no better dentist in Texas to improve your teeth with Invisalign®. Invisalign® is an orthodontic appliance system used to inconspicuously treat gaps, crooked and crowded teeth in adults and teens. This modern take on braces features a system of clear aligner trays that are worn at all times with the exception of during meals and when brushing or flossing. The trays are custom fitted to the teeth, making them virtually unnoticeable when laughing, talking and eating with other people. Patients receive a sequence of trays, each of which is slightly different than the one before. The aligners provide a slight resistance to the teeth, forcing them to move into alignment over time. With Invisalign®, adults and teens can achieve the smiles they’ve always wanted without feeling self-conscious about the mode of treatment.
Why Choose Invisalign Treatment
wearing Invisalign® is in no way as restrictive as traditional braces? Many adults opt for this system not only because it is discreet, but also because there is no need to change your diet to avoid foods that could damage braces. This is because the Invisalign® system is free of braces, wires and brackets, instead opting for a removable tray that can be taken out prior to meals. Patients simply change to a new aligner tray every week. Also, Invisalign® fits well into busy adult schedules, involving once monthly check-ups to receive your next aligners and confirm Invisalign® tooth movement is on track.

You will wear your aligners nearly all of the time for 22 hours, with the exception of about two hours per day when eating, drinking and brushing & flossing your teeth. Invisalign® treatments are different for everyone, but most patients can achieve their ideal smiles in less than a year. During that time, you can expect to make once a month dental visits to monitor your progress. These Invisalign® appointments on average take 10-20 minutes. Dr. Fisher encourages cleaning with your hygienist during ANY form of orthodontics every 3 months to ensure the teeth are kept clean, white and cavity free. Dr. Fisher offers complimentary whitening during Invisalign® to enhance the health and aesthetics of the process!
Following your treatment, you will no longer need to wear Invisalign® trays all day. However, you will need to wear retainers each night to help protect your new smile. It is also important to continue visiting your dentist for routine check-ups and twice-yearly cleanings.
