Invisalign® is a way to straighten your teeth – without braces! A complimentary consultation with Dr. Laura Pulver can determine if Invisalign® is right for you.
We are a certified Invisalign® provider
How Invisalign® works
Invisalign® is a series of custom trays called aligners that straighten your teeth without attaching braces to your teeth or tightening arch wires. The aligners are custom made to fit your teeth from a computerized simulation of your bite. Each set of aligners is worn for one week and your teeth will gradually shift into their proper position over the course of your treatment.
Invisalign® treatment time
Once Dr. Laura Pulver determines if you are a good candidate for Invisalign®, the average treatment time is approximately the same as it would be with traditional braces. The actual length of your treatment depends on the severity of your condition and will be determined by Dr. Laura Pulver at the initial consultation.
Why choose Invisalign® over braces?
The thin, plastic aligners are nearly invisible on your teeth, and allow you the freedom to keep your treatment to yourself or share it with the world! The aligners are worn for approximately 22 hours a day, but can be removed for brushing teeth and eating.
A big advantage of Invisalign® over braces is that the aligners are movable. This means that if you are a teen, you can play sports without worrying about accidentally damaging your braces if you get in an accident. You can also continue to play your musical instrument without braces interfering with your embouchure. The best part about Invisalign treatment is that the restrictive list of foods that should be avoided with braces does not apply with invisalign. You can continue to eat things like popcorn, steak, hamburgers, carrots, and apples (with your aligners out of course). And let’s not forget, the removable aligners let you brush and floss like you normally would.
This nearly-invisible option for teeth straightening is truly changing the way people view orthodontic treatment, and we are very excited to offer this technology to our Katy braces patients. Katy orthodontist Dr. Laura Pulver has a lot of experience treating patients with Invisalign®!
