Invisalign, which we happily provide at John A. Gerling, DDS, MSD, is a great alternative to traditional orthodontic treatment if you are hesitant about the look and feel of metal braces. During your initial visit at our McAllen, TX office, the first thing we do is take an impression of your teeth as they are now and digitize it. Using special software, we look at the current positioning of your teeth and compare it to the way your teeth should look.
Invisalign treatment, which consists of a series of aligners that you switch out approximately every couple of weeks, can help patients with crowded teeth, crossbites, overbites, underbites, and more. Invisalign gradually shifts your teeth into place, creating the dazzling smile you’ve always wanted. During treatment, patients wear the aligners all day and night, except for during meals and when they’re brushing and flossing; cleaning your teeth and eating are a snap since you can easily remove your aligners! And because they’re clear, no one will know that your teeth are gradually straightening!
To find out if you are the right candidate for Invisalign treatment, we invite you to give us a call to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. John Gerling.
