What is Invisalign?

Comfortable, Convenient, Clear

Invisalign® is a cutting-edge teeth-straightening system that involves a series of custom, removable aligners that are crafted from clear, smooth, BPA-free plastic. As you make your way through the series, your teeth shift little by little into their desired places. The aligners are created based on your orthodontist’s specifications and while the treatment is fantastic, it’s only as good as the doctor who plans it. At Houston Orthodontic Specialists, we’re Diamond Invisalign Providers, meaning we’re among the top practices in the country when it comes to experience level. We have the expertise to address cases ranging from mild to complex using clear aligners and we can incorporate Propel® to reduce your treatment time by up to 50%. To find out if you’re a candidate for Bellaire or Houston Invisalign treatment, book a free consultation today online or by calling us at (281) 752-4222 (West Houston) or (713) 667-6000 (Bellaire).

How Does Invisalign Work?

We use our iTero® scanner to take digital scans of your teeth and gums and create a 3D model of your dental anatomy. Dr. Tabakman, Dr. Bloome, Dr. Muller or Dr. Wadler maps out each individual tooth movement directly on this model and we can even show you what your results will look like before you start treatment. Invisalign then creates custom aligners according to the doctor’s prescription, ensuring a perfect fit and an amazing outcome. The aligners apply gentle pressure to move teeth into alignment. Since the aligners are created in a series that progresses your treatment every time you put in a new set, they don’t require adjustments.

Why Invisalign?

Invisalign is incredibly precise because Dr. Tabakman, Dr. Bloome, Dr. Muller and Dr. Wadler create your treatment plan using digital technology and the aligners are custom made from a 3D model of your mouth. The aligners are removable, so you don’t have to make any changes to your lifestyle and you can eat what you want and brush and floss with ease. With no brackets and wires involved, Invisalign is also extremely comfortable. However, the biggest benefit that our Houston and Bellaire Invisalign patients love is the fact that the aligners are virtually invisible. Most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them. You’ll get the results you want without any sacrifice.
