At KB Dental, we understand the impact the alignment of your teeth can have, not just for your appearance and self-esteem, but also for your oral health and well-being! Crooked teeth can really put a damper on your smile and confidence—but straightening them shouldn’t have to! That’s why Dr. Bartz is happy to be a certified Invisalign provider in Heath, Forney & Rockwall, TX and would love to help you straighten your smile quickly and discreetly with the world’s leading clear aligner system.
Invisalign® is the original and the most advanced clear aligner system in the world, so it makes sense that it’s also the #1 dentist-recommended. Invisalign is backed by over two decades of research and clinical success, and has helped over 5 million people discover their confidence in a straight smile worldwide. With Invisalign’s recent advancements in materials, aligners are more comfortable, better fitting, and can achieve beautiful results up to 50% faster than ever before!
The Invisalign process starts with a consultation with Dr. Bartz to determine if you are a candidate. If given the go ahead, we can get started on your treatment right away with digital scans of your teeth. Then, we will send your digital impressions off to the fabulous folks at Invisalign to have your aligners created.
When you return, you will be given a few sets of aligners to get started on your new smile! We’ll show you how to put them in and remove them—it can be difficult at first, but a little bit of pressure should do the trick! Your aligners are flexible and your teeth are strong, so less delicacy is needed than most suspect at first. We’ll answer any of your questions and outline your treatment plan, so you know exactly what to expect.
One of the best things about Invisalign is that aligners are removable, so they don’t have to get in the way of your life like traditional braces do! You can continue to enjoy your favorite foods, stay active in all your favorite sports and activities, and maintain your thorough oral hygiene routine. You’ll have fewer emergency visits than you would with braces, without the pain of broken brackets and wires. Invisalign aligners are durable and flexible, and virtually invisible so no one will even notice you’re wearing them!
You should wear your aligners no less than 20 hours per day—take them out only to eat, brush, and floss. Always remember to brush your teeth before putting your aligners back in! You will switch to your next set of aligners either weekly or every two weeks depending on your individual treatment plan, and you will come in to see us for check-ups every few weeks to track your progress and get your next sets of aligners.
Invisalign can now treat more complex cases than ever before! Invisalign is the ideal teeth straightening solution for both adults and teens, and can help with cases including overbite, underbite, crossbite, gapped teeth, open bite, and crowding.
Invisalign can treat most of the same alignment issues traditional braces can, without the mouth full of metal! However, there are some exceptions, including if you require significant alteration to your bite or movement along the vertical axis. The only way to know if you are a candidate for sure is to come see Dr. Bartz for a consultation.
