Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. If you feel having crooked teeth is having a negative impact on making first impressions describes you, please contact Dr. Eseoghene Okugbaye at Alvarado Family Dentistry in Alvarado, Texas, today to set up an appointment for Invisalign® braces.

Invisalign braces are clear, customized trays fitted by Dr. Eseoghene Okugbaye just for you. These trays will work to align your teeth over a period of eighteen to twenty-four months. One of the major difference between Invisalign and metal braces is that you can remove your Invisalign trays at any time, for up to two hours a day. The ability to remove the trays will allow you to prevent food from getting stuck in them during your meals, unlike metal braces which can’t be removed. You can also remove the trays before brushing your teeth in order to prevent your toothbrush from being caught in them. Please keep in mind that the Invisalign trays must remain in place for at least twenty-two hours a day in order for the treatment to be effective in properly aligning your teeth.

Invisalign trays should be replaced every two weeks. The total treatment time for Invisalign to set your teeth in their ideal location is between eighteen and twenty-two months.

Please contact Alvarado Family Dentistry today if you’d like to talk to your dentist about scheduling an appointment or learning more about Invisalign braces. We look forward to fixing your smile!
