Many patients never wore traditional braces when they were young, however, today they wish to have straighter teeth. Another pool of individuals may actually previously wore braces at one time but still want straighter teeth. Because of advanced technology at Waterside Dental Care at Richmond, TX, invisible aligners, such as Invisalign, can align the teeth. Invisalign uses various sets of plastic aligner straightening trays to gently and slowly reposition the teeth into a straighter position. These see-through trays fit snugly on top of the teeth and are worn for the majority of the day. They are generally only taken off for drinking coffee or wine, eating, and teeth brushing. Invisalign from our dentists at Waterside Dental Care can effectively straighten the teeth for a more attractive smile.

"I have been a new patient for about one month and have had three appts in that time. After my initial exam and X-ray I went back for my cleaning and one cavity. About two weeks later I had a Torus Mandibular erupt through the gum, rough boney protrusion, during the weekend. I called first thing Monday morning and the dentist was able to see me later that day. The problem was taken care at that time. The reception staff has been very nice and polite. The Dentist and her dental assistants are also very friendly and professional. I have no complaints."- M.S. / Yelp / Sep 30, 2019
What to Expect
If the decision is made that Invisalign is the most effective solution for teeth straightening needs, treatment begins with digital imaging of the mouth so that the trays can be made. Our dentists and the staff at Waterside Dental Care show each patient how to wear and care for their aligners, and talk to the patient about the importance of making sure leave the aligners in for 20-22 hours a day. Aligning trays are to be worn for 2-3 weeks before the next round of aligners are then provided. This is based on the progression of the teeth movement. When the patient comes in for their appointments at Waterside Dental Care, our dentists will provide the patient a better estimate of the length of time they will need to wear Invisalign.
Once the patient's teeth are in proper alignment, it is crucial that the patient wear an Invisalign Vivera setting retainer to maintain the results. Most patients need to wear their retainer in place when they sleep at night. For overall great dental health, patients should continue to visit our dentists at Waterside Dental Care twice a year and continue a diligent home oral plan.
The price for Invisalign will fluctuate based on the complexity pertaining to the individual's needs, and how many sets of aligners that will be needed. Orthodontic insurance may cover some of the expense. This varies depending on the patient's coverage. The staff at Waterside Dental Care will confirm what the patient's benefits are so that an accurate fee can be given by our dentists during the patient's initial visit.
