Invisalign® Before & Afters
In the past, the surest method of straightening misaligned teeth and restoring symmetry to a smile was to use traditional braces, a series of metal brackets attached directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. Though effective, braces often caused the user to feel self-conscious about his or her appearance. In recent years, however, orthodontic treatment has evolved dramatically.

Who is A Candidate for Invisalign®
In the past, the surest method of straightening misaligned teeth and restoring symmetry to a smile was to use traditional braces, a series of metal brackets attached directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. Though effective, braces often caused the user to feel self-conscious about his or her appearance. In recent years, however, orthodontic treatment has evolved dramatically. We are proud to offer Invisalign® at our Keller, Texas office as a discreet, modern alternative to traditional braces.
How Invisalign® Works
First, you will undergo a full oral examination at Dentistry for Life. If you are a suitable candidate for Invisalign®, the doctor will take x-rays and digital 3-D images of your teeth to determine your customized treatment plan. At that time, the doctor will be able to show you a digital representation of how your teeth will shift closer to their optimal position at each stage of the process.
Once you have received your specially crafted mouthpieces, you will begin wearing the first in the series. The mouthpiece should be worn at least 22 hours per day and removed only during meal times or for brushing and flossing. Every two weeks, you will replace your current mouthpiece with the next in the series, which will further guide your teeth toward their proper alignment. Our doctors will schedule periodic checkups to assess your progress.
Advantages of Invisalign®
Unlike braces, Invisalign® requires no restrictions on the foods you eat. Patients wearing braces are often not able to participate in contact sports because the metal brackets can cut the inside of the mouth, but Invisalign® wearers can continue participating in the sports they love. And because Invisalign® is removable, you need only pop your mouthpiece out when it’s time to clean your teeth, and you can brush and floss as you did prior to treatment. Cleaning the mouthpiece itself is as simple as rinsing it under the faucet.
How Long Does Treatment Last?
No two patients’ needs are exactly the same, so every Invisalign® treatment plan is tailored to an individual’s needs. Some plans take more time than others to achieve the desired effects. Depending upon your needs, our dentists can give you an accurate estimate of how much time your Invisalign® treatment will require during your consultation
Weighing Your Options
Although you have many orthodontic systems to choose from, the proven benefits of Invisalign make the treatment a great option to consider. In addition to the original product, Invisalign is also available in Teen and Express options. Patients whose cases are considered too severe for Invisalign treatment can nearly always achieve their goals with traditional orthodontics. In very rare cases, surgery may be recommended. During an Invisalign consultation, you can discuss all your questions and concerns with your doctor.
Drawbacks of Invisalign Treatment
While traditional orthodontic treatment can be customized for virtually any case, Invisalign may not be the best option for treating severe gaps or certain types of misalignment. Patients should also consider treatment timeline, their lifestyle, and budget.
