A straight, beautiful smile is something that everyone wants. And rightfully so, since a good smile can do wonders for your appearance and self-esteem. It’s been proven multiple times that those with great smiles are more confident in social and professional situations.

Getting that smile, though, isn’t an ideal process. Most people think the only way to get straight teeth is still with traditional orthodontics. Thanks to some new technology, though, that’s no longer your only reality.

What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is a new process for straightening teeth you can find in the office of most any orthodontist in the country. Invisalign® employs clear aligners, made from a durable plastic, that move your teeth into their proper place.

How does it work?
During your first visit with Dr. Stephan Ramsay, you’ll have a mold made of your teeth. Once that mold has dried and formed, the rest of the team here will work on creating a series of clear, plastic aligners that are engineered to slowly move your teeth into their correct position over time. You can bet on about two years for Invisalign® treatment, though time will vary depending on your specific needs.

Will it work for me?
Invisalign® isn’t a fit for everyone, but most people will be able to benefit from it. Our team here at Ramsay Orthodontics in Austin, Texas, will help you determine if it can make the difference you want to see in your smile.
