Invisalign in Laredo, TX

Are crowded or crooked teeth holding your child back from having the smile they want? Invisalign clear aligners can provide them with the confidence that comes from a straight, beautiful smile. They’re an excellent alternative for kids and teens that are concerned about wearing traditional metal or ceramic braces. If you think your child could benefit from Invisalign, contact our Laredo dental office to schedule your consultation!

What is the Invisalign process like?

The invisalign procedure begins with a consultation and evaluation of your teeth. Our team will take x-rays to get an impression of the teeth’s starting position. The clear aligners themselves will be custom-made to perfectly fit your child. Over the course of 12 to 18 months they’ll be rotated out with new aligners in order to gradually straighten out their smile. We’ll aim to schedule these appointments every 6 to 8 weeks so that we can make sure that everything stays on track. After the treatment is finished, retainers can prevent teeth from returning to their original position.

How do you take care of Clear Aligners?

Good habits and regular routines are the key to strong dental health, and the same is true for taking care of clear aligners. Encourage your child to set up a routine to clean their aligners on a daily basis. Start by rinsing with water, and then leave them to soak in a specialized Invisalign cleaning solution. Brushing with a soft-bristle toothbrush will also go a long way towards removing the kind of bacteria that can build up and cause stains and bad breath. As always it also helps to brush after meals and before the clear aligners are put back in!
