Adults and older teens enjoy invisible orthodontics with Invisalign aligners from Dallas dentist, Dr. Ellis L. Ramsey. Read more here about the process.
Dr. Ellis L. Ramsey is well-known for his skilled approach to holistic dentistry. In his Dallas office, he offers Invisalign clear aligners as a possible cosmetic dentistry service for individuals seeking healthier, straighter smiles without the obvious brackets and wires of traditional braces.
What exactly are Invisalign aligners?
Invisalign aligners are a series of custom-crafted, BPA-free acrylic aligners which fit tightly over the patient’s top and bottom teeth. Removable, cleanable and practically invisible, the aligners gently and gradually shift crooked teeth into straighter, and therefore, healthier positions.
Dallas Invisalign is a wonderful option for individuals who dread the intricacies of traditional metal bracket and wire braces. Unattractive appliances, dietary restrictions, complicated and time-consuming oral hygiene–these factors deter many people from getting the orthodontic correction they need and the beautiful smiles they deserve.
Invisalign is far easier and much less obvious. The system works for a wide range of orthodontic problems, including:
- tooth rotation
- cross bite
- open bite
Patients receive an average of 18 to 30 aligner pairs over the course of their 9 to 18 month treatment, changing the appliances as instructed by Dr. Ramsey. They come to the Dallas dental office every 4 to 6 weeks for simple progress checks and to pick-up the next sets of aligners.
Holistic Dallas dentist, Dr. Ellis Ramsey, determines which patients may benefit from Invisalign. He examines the individual’s teeth and gums, takes digital x-rays and makes a 3-dimensional treatment plan. The patient actually views the progress his teeth will make as treatment advances. The information gathered by Dr. Ramsey goes to a special Invisalign lab where technicians make the appliances.
Patients wear their aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day. Compliance is important so that treatment proceeds according to plan and finishes on time. Patients remove aligners to eat and to brush and floss. In fact, many individuals remove their aligners while getting their pictures taken or for an important event such as a job interview, speaking engagement or wedding.
In short, the Invisalign lifestyle is easy for adults and teens. Most people don’t even realize that Invisalign patients are receiving treatment. The aligners are barely noticeable, and after treatment is complete, teeth stay in their corrected positions with a simple retainer.
