There is no doubt that with the Invisalign treatment program, our San Antonio, TX dentist’s office can help the right candidate transform a lackluster smile into something truly beautiful.

That’s why we love it so much, and odds are good that you will too.

The Advantages Of Invisalign Are Clear
In the grand scheme, Invisalign performs the same job as old-fashioned braces. However, it takes a much different approach to addressing a patient’s orthodontic problems. In fact, Invisalign eliminates the need for clunky metal brackets and wires altogether.
Rather than following the way it used to be done, this method utilizes a series of clear plastic aligner trays that are switched out at home every two weeks over a period of about 12 months. This means that with, Dr. Moore guiding the process, there won’t be any awkward adjustments or 2-3 years of waiting to enjoy the results.
Sounds good, right? But wait, it gets better! These nearly invisible aligners can’t be seen by the untrained eye and they are far more comfortable to wear than classic metal braces. As such, there won’t be any annoying mouth sores or bleeding along the way. They are also removable which makes eating easier and cleaning your gear a breeze. There are no dietary restrictions or special tools demanded by Invisalign.
In the end, this is an easy and effective way to get a better smile at any age. But we like to remind our adult patients that Invisalign also guards your oral health by taking on tough issues.
Obviously, overcrowded teeth don’t look so hot, but they present more than a cosmetic issue. Living in such a state can actually hasten the onset of tooth decay and periodontal disease. Why would that be? Simple! It’s because teeth that are so close together are harder to keep clean. Bacteria is given more opportunities for eluding your brush and floss. Plaque can build up and cause inflammation and infection once it slips below the gumline. This can result in tooth loss and worse if the bacteria gets into your bloodstream. The good news is that Invisalign can fix your crowded smile!
Gapped Teeth
Having wide open spaces in your smile can be embarrassing. But here’s the most upsetting thing about such gaps: your individual teeth will not be protected by the surrounding teeth. This increases the risk of your teeth loosening up, among other things. You can better protect your individual teeth by trying Invisalign.
Having an overbite can place unwanted stress on your teeth and lead to worn-down or cracked teeth that will need to be repaired by a professional. Invisalign makes your bite better now and eliminates the need for costly cosmetic improvements later.
