Invisalign in San Antonio, TX

How would you look with straight teeth? If you’re troubled with gapped, crooked, or otherwise misaligned teeth, consider Invisalign® aligners. At Local Dental San Antonio, Drs. Joung and Minkyung Lee can review your options and help you decide if orthodontic treatment is the most suitable option for your dental health.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a clear aligner system consisting of custom-made orthodontic trays designed to straighten the teeth gradually.

Is Invisalign right for me?

Invisalign is ideal for those with mild to moderate alignment issues and enough discipline to wear the trays as directed.

How is Invisalign different?

In this day and age, we have options. As wise consumers, we constantly weigh our options—including orthodontic treatment. While there are many clear aligner companies on the market, what makes Invisalign different are four factors:

Established Brand History

When many think of “clear aligners,” they think of Invisalign. Why? The Invisalign system has received FDA approval since 1998.

Accuracy

Invisalign has a trusted and patented process that yields 10x fewer rejections when compared to PVS impressions.

Comfortability

Invisalign aligners are made of SmartTrack® material, which is comfortable and easier to slide off and put back on.

Commitment to Compliance

Patient compliance goes together with excellent orthodontic results. Invisalign supports patient compliance through its patented system, straightening with predictability. This translates to no guesswork for the patient and a clear finish line when starting treatment.

Treatment Expectations

For new patients, we strongly suggest filling out new patient forms and submitting insurance information for a more efficient first visit.

How long does Invisalign take? According to Invisalign’s manufacturer website, patients can see results in as little as six months. However, a general rule of thumb is that the more complex an individual’s alignment, the more extended treatment will be.

Furthermore, we’ve outlined what to expect before, during, and after each Invisalign treatment:

Before

After our dentists establish candidacy, our team uses an iTero® digital scanner to accurately capture advanced images of the patient’s smile. Also, our team can take these images to simulate how the teeth will move throughout orthodontic treatment and final alignment.

During

Throughout treatment, we expect Invisalign patients to return to our San Antonio dental office periodically to ensure that the patient is on the right track, adjust as needed, and incrementally deliver trays.

After

When orthodontic pressures are released after clear aligner therapy, teeth still tend to drift to their original position. So, we suggest wearing an Invisalign retainer to preserve the hard work of orthodontic treatment and ensure lasting results.
