What causes crooked teeth?

If you have misaligned teeth, you’re not alone. Crooked teeth is a common problem among teens and adults, often caused by any of the following:

  • Trauma to the teeth, gums, or jawline

  • Genetics

  • Chronic thumb-sucking

  • Chewing on hard foods or objects

At Made Ya Smile The Woodlands, our team carefully assesses your teeth to determine if Invisalign is right for you.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a cosmetic, orthodontic treatment that utilizes a series of clear trays that are custom-fit to gradually and effectively straighten the teeth. Each tray is easily removable and is switched out once every two weeks throughout the duration of your treatment until optimal results are achieved. At Made Ya Smile The Woodlands, our team of dentists are equipped with the latest dental technology to create the best Invisalign treatment plan that addresses your unique needs.

How Invisalign can transform my smile

Invisalign treatment comes with many perks that traditional metal braces can’t provide, including:

  • Removable trays for ease of cleaning and eating

  • Clear trays to provide a natural-looking smile throughout the treatment process

  • Compliance indicators to assist wearers to maintain a full wear schedule

  • Rupture tabs for teenagers with developing molars

  • Customized fitting to optimize results

  • Fewer required dental check-ups

Am I an ideal candidate for Invisalign treatment?

Ideal candidates include teenagers and adults who have:

  • Crooked or misaligned teeth

  • No desire to wear metal braces

  • Good, generally healthy gums and teeth

  • An overbite or underbite

  • A narrow dental arch

Our team will examine your teeth, gums, and jawline to ascertain if Invisalign is the right treatment approach for you. Patients with active gum disease or decay may need to resolve these issues prior to starting their Invisalign treatment.

How patients are fitted for Invisalign trays

Each patient visits our office where we will collect 3D imaging and digital impressions of your teeth. These impressions are sent to our laboratory where customized trays are fabricated. Patients are fitted for their first tray to assure the right measurements. Each tray is switched out every two weeks to gradually straighten the teeth. Once your treatment is completed, you’ll be issued a retainer to help maintain your new smile. Patients are only required to attend dental check-ups once every 4-6 weeks.

After Invisalign

Each tray is worn for two weeks for approximately 20-22 hours per day. The duration of Invisalign treatment varies per patient depending on the initial status of their teeth. Once you’ve completed your Invisalign treatments, you’ll be asked to wear a removable retainer according to a specific schedule to optimize your results.

How to maintain my Invisalign results

Consider using the following tips at home to get more mileage out of your Invisalign results:

  • Wear your retainer according to our recommended schedule

  • Wear a mouthguard for all contact sports

  • Brush and floss your teeth twice daily

  • Avoid excessively hard or chewy foods

  • Limit your sugar intake and eat nutritious meals

  • Attend routine dental check-ups and cleanings
