The thought of straightening your teeth can make just about anyone cringe. Maybe it brings up bad memories from the past – a rubber band flying across the cafeteria, headgear at summer camp, or humiliating nicknames (metal mouth, tinsel teeth, cheese grater).
If you’re an adult wanting to straighten your teeth again, or for the first time, but don’t want to suffer through the embarrassing metal mouth, we hear you! Let’s be honest – no one wants to wear braces, especially for several years.
The good news is, with advances in modern techniques and technology, we are now able to straighten teeth quickly and discreetly – and without the mouth full of metal.
Invisalign® is the most advanced clear aligner system in the world. It is the alternative orthodontics method most requested by patients, and most recommended by doctors.
Invisalign® uses a series of custom clear aligner trays to apply pressure and gently shift teeth into their desired position. Your individual treatment plan including frequency of aligner changes and duration of treatment will depend on your unique situation, and will be outlined in a comprehensive consultation with your Austin dentist. Generally patients wear each set of aligners for a few weeks before switching to the next set until the desired results are achieved.
There are many benefits in straightening your teeth with Invisalign®, including:

If you wish there was a way to speed up your orthodontic treatment, we would love to speak with you about Propel Accelerated Orthodontics. Propel is a patented, FDA registered system designed to minimize orthodontic treatment times and help patients smile even faster. Propel uses “micro-osteoperforations” to increase the rate of tooth movement. Poking tiny micro holes into the gums causes a local inflammatory response, which increases blood flow, bone remodeling activity and tooth movement.
Propel can be used with any fixed or removable orthodontic appliance to treat a number of alignment problems faster than ever before. Propel harnesses the body’s own biological response to accelerate the orthodontic process, so you can show off your straight smile faster than ever before!
