Having your teeth straightened isn’t just a vanity play- it’s a serious investment in your future health. Crooked or misaligned teeth leave you vulnerable to a number of health issues. Properly situated teeth are optimally placed within the gums to augment your natural defense against plaque and bacteria build-up, which is the primary cause of tooth decay and the gum disease gingivitis. You may think you’ve got your dental health under control with a rigorous oral hygiene routine, but even the most committed brushing and flossing won’t stop plaque and bacteria from developing over time, and imperfectly aligned teeth are extra vulnerable. Of course, nobody wants to be put through the pain or social embarrassment that go hand in hand with traditional braces or retainer systems. That’s why Dallas cosmetic dentist, Dr. Mark Sowell is proud to offer his patients Invisalign: a clear, custom fitted, removable aligner system that gradually repositions your teeth.
The Invisalign Method
Although your first appointment will follow the path traditional for any dental gear—a comprehensive dental exam with ex-rays, pictures, and teeth impressions—from there on out the Invisalign method is nothing like having traditional braces or a retainer. Certified invisalign dentist Dr. Mark Sowell and his team of highly trained professionals provide you with a series of smooth, comfortable, and non-irritating BPA-free aligners, shaped specifically for your mouth. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, so they can be worn unnoticeably throughout the day, no matter where you go or what you do. And because they are so easy to remove, food, sports, and activity restrictions are non-existent, and you can easily continue your normal oral dental hygiene routine.
Twice a month, you’ll move on to the next aligner in your series, although in office check-ups with Dr. Sowell need only happen every six weeks or so. No matter what your age, occupation, or type of lifestyle you lead in Dallas, Invisalign will work around the clock to shift your teeth into their natural, healthy alignment- giving you better health and a gorgeous smile!
