Bite and jaw alignment problems are quite common in the Fort Worth area. These alignment problems can cause serious issues up to and including severe, chronic tension headaches. It's important to fix these problems as soon as possible, but many patients—teenagers and adults alike—are reluctant to invest in these solutions.
No one enjoys braces, and so many patients elect to go without needed treatment. Traditional metal braces are unsightly and uncomfortable. Fortunately, you have other options. Our dentists now offer Invisalign® clear aligners, which provide a clear, comfortable, inconspicuous solution to your orthodontic needs.

What is Invisalign®?
Traditionally, orthodontic issues like a misaligned bite are treated through the application of metal braces. They're effective, but wearing them is not a pleasant experience. They're conspicuous, they're uncomfortable, they need to be tightened through in-office visits every few months and it's entirely too easy to get food stuck under the wires.
Invisalign® is another way—a better way—to straighten your teeth. Invisalign® doesn't use ugly, uncomfortable metal wires. Instead, you'll wear a set of clear plastic aligners that are custom crafted for the specific shape of your teeth.
Invisalign® clear aligners can correct many orthodontic issues including:
- Crooked, gapped or crowded teeth
- A misaligned jaw (over, under, cross and open bites)
These aligners are completely inconspicuous and fit comfortably over your teeth. They are easy to remove and to slide into place. You'll wear them most of the day (20-22 hours per day), removing them only when you eat.
While you wear your aligners, Invisalign® will slowly and subtly shift your teeth and jaw into a more natural, comfortable position. A complete set of aligners will be crafted for you, and you'll need to return to our office every few weeks to swap out your aligners.
Invisalign® has exploded in popularity across the United States because these clear plastic aligners represent an extraordinary improvement over traditional metal braces. For example:
- They are more attractive and less noticeable.
- There are no uncomfortable tightening appointments required.
- Because you remove Invisalign® before you eat, you'll never get food caught under a wire—after all, there are no wires.
Are these clear plastic aligners right for you? Generally speaking, anyone who is a candidate for traditional metal braces is a candidate for Invisalign®. We are happy to talk to you about Invisalign® or any other dentistry services we offer.
