If you or a family member needs braces, understanding your options can help you make a more confident decision. Choosing a dental procedure to straighten your teeth is a big decision, often making the process of determining which option is best difficult. DeSoto Dental is here to help you and your family gain better oral health, improving your smile. As an adult, you may be seeking orthodontic treatment to help correct crooked or misaligned teeth in order to improve your appearance and oral health. Invisalign is an excellent option for those who want to quickly straighten their teeth, compared to the traditional braces that can be time consuming and uncomfortable. This effective and modern dental treatment can provide you and your family with comfortable, convenient options to obtain a healthy, beautiful smile.

With modern dental technology on the rise, options for orthodontics have improved significantly. Invisalign is a custom-made series of aligners that shift your teeth into the correct position. Each aligner is created specifically for you. Made from smooth, BPA-free plastic, the soft aligners are virtually invisible. Aligners are used over the teeth, gently moving and shifting your teeth into place. Invisalign aligners are designed to offer patients with an alternate, convenient and comfortable route to fixing dental issues. Every two weeks a new set of aligners are used until your treatment is complete. Treatment duration depends on the severity of your individual dental issues, but typically Invisalign treatment lasts anywhere from two to eight months, cutting the traditional time for braces virtually in half.
