Invisalign® Plano, TX

Choose Invisalign® in Plano, TX, For A Straighter Smile!

Choose Invisalign® in our Plano dental office to quickly get a straighter smile! Are you dealing with crooked and misaligned teeth? Are you one of the millions of adults who are unhappy, self-conscious, or even embarrassed about your smile? Most adults don’t want to wear traditional metal orthodontic braces for up to three years, if at all.

Fortunately, Dr. Sara Chen and Dr. Mark Sowell provide a safe cosmetic solution to fit your lifestyle. ClearCorrect™ and Invisalign® are available at our dental office in Plano, TX. We help our patients who want a convenient and discreet way to realign their teeth using clear aligners.

Invisalign and ClearCorrect are two of the most popular types of clear aligners. They fit snugly over the upper and lower teeth. Your aligners will slowly straighten your teeth in about nine to eighteen months.

Patients will wear their clear aligners throughout the day. However, you can remove them for eating, brushing, and flossing. Dr. Sowell, Dr. Chen, and our team can help patients correct the following issues:

  • Overbite
  • Crossbite
  • Gapped teeth
  • Underbite
  • Open-bite
  • Overcrowded teeth

Correcting crooked teeth and alignment issues does not only improve the aesthetics of your smile. It can help prevent the development of a more complex dental problem. Patients with crooked teeth may be more susceptible to gum disease, tooth decay, and cavities.

This is because crooked teeth are harder to clean. However, finding a solution for your crooked teeth can improve the quality of your oral health.

Why Choose Invisalign or ClearCorrect from Dr. Sara Chen and Dr. Mark Sowell?

Invisalign and ClearCorrect are a revolutionary combination of proven orthodontic techniques, modern materials, and innovative thought. These virtually invisible aligners look more like athletic mouthguards than braces on teeth. Unlike metal dental braces, our Invisalign clear aligners are removable for easy eating, brushing, and flossing.

This makes it easier to maintain oral hygiene throughout your orthodontic treatment. It’s also much more comfortable than wearing wires and brackets.

The Invisalign system is a series of clear aligners we custom-mold to fit your teeth. You will get several aligners to wear for approximately two weeks at a time to achieve beautiful results. In most cases, Invisalign and ClearCorrect work more quickly than traditional braces. Most of our patients complete their treatment in about 12 months if they wear each set properly and follow all instructions.

Dr. Mark Sowell and Dr. Sara Chen are Plano, TX, Invisalign, and ClearCorrect providers. We offer both systems to give you the best treatment for your needs, goals, and budget.

  • Convenience: Patients can remove the aligners for various activities. Patients will need to visit our Plano, TX, dental office for visits with Dr. Sowell and Dr. Chen to check their progress.
  • Aesthetics: Invisalign is virtually invisible. Unlike traditional braces, we make Invisalign out of a clear plastic material that virtually disappears when you wear them.
  • Treatment for all ages: Invisalign can be an ideal solution for patients of all ages. Dr. Chen and Dr. Sowell will examine your smile to determine if Invisalign is right for you.

The length of your Invisalign treatment process will depend on the severity of your misaligned teeth. However, you can expect to see straighter teeth a few months after starting treatment.

First, Dr. Chen and Dr. Sowell will take digital impressions of your teeth. Then, they will create custom-made aligners that fit comfortably and securely on your teeth. After we create your aligners, Dr. Chen and Dr. Sowell will go over aftercare instructions with you. They will show you how to wear and take care of your aligners.

You will receive a new set of aligners every few weeks. Each new set of Invisalign trays will help your teeth straighten up. You will notice straight teeth a few months into treatment.

Clear Aligners vs. Metal Braces

Clear aligners and metal braces are two common types of orthodontic treatments. These treatments can correct misaligned teeth and improve the overall function of your mouth. While both treatments are effective, they differ in various aspects.

Discreet treatment – Using clear aligners to correct your orthodontic issues is almost unnoticeable to anyone else. On the other hand, metal braces are very noticeable. Especially when they trap food, causing an embarrassing situation. With clear aligners, no one will even know you are wearing them.

No dietary restrictions – If you have to wear metal braces, there is a long list of foods you should avoid. This includes food that is hard, chewy, or crunchy. One of the greatest benefits of wearing clear aligners is that you can remove them to eat. Furthermore, you can eat whatever you want when you have them off.

Easy removal for cleaning and routine dental care – You can remove your invisible aligners to brush your teeth and floss. However, traditional braces will stay on throughout your entire treatment plan. Often, tooth enamel stains easily if you do not maintain metal brackets properly. Clear aligners eliminate the risk of tooth enamel staining.

Comfortable – Metal braces consist of brackets that bond to your teeth with thin metal wires connecting them. They can cause some discomfort, and patients sometimes find it difficult to adjust to them. These parts protrude from the teeth and can puncture or scratch the inside of your mouth.

However, clear aligners will not need all these extra parts. Your aligners will sit comfortably against your teeth without the need for bonding material.
