If you have mild orthodontic issues, such as uneven spacing, crowding, or early signs of relapse from previous braces, Dr. Chris Reger may recommend Invisalign® Express at his San Antonio practice. This innovative alternative to traditional braces can correct some patients’ problems, often in six months or less. Invisalign® clear aligners has been endorsed by dentists nationwide, which is a testament to the treatment’s effectiveness. Mention that you read about Invisalign® Express on our website, and your initial consultation at our office will be free. This innovative, short-term treatment is available to teens and adults who want straighter teeth and a more attractive smile.
How It Works
The entire family of Invisalign® products is convenient, inconspicuous, and fast. Invisalign® Express, however, is extremely fast. In a matter of a few months, this treatment delivers noticeable results.
Dr. Reger will first meet with you and examine your health history to determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign® Express. Then, if you decide to move forward, Dr. Reger will fit you for ten or fewer Invisalign® trays. The doctor will use special software and a certified Invisalign® lab to fabricate your clear aligners. You will wear each one for about two weeks, then discard it and move to the next set.
In contrast to bulky wire-and-bracket braces, the Invisalign® Express clear acrylic mouth trays are inconspicuous and removable. The trays use gentle pressure to shift teeth into their ideal position. Teeth cleaning is a cinch, because you will remove your trays when brushing and flossing your teeth or eating a meal. If you are attending an event where your smile will take center stage, leave your Invisalign® trays at home. Of course, wearing your trays as often as possible (for a minimum of 22-23 hours a day) will help keep your treatment on track. You will not have to attend dental appointments for tightening, because your aligners will have no wires. Do plan to visit Dr. Reger for quick progress check-ups every six weeks, or as scheduled. After treatment concludes, you will wear a retainer to keep teeth properly aligned for years to come.
Invisalign® Express Benefits
Some studies suggest that as many as 60% of Americans postpone orthodontic treatment because they believe that it will take too long or cost too much. Invisalign® Express may alleviate both of those concerns, as well as uncertainties about discomfort. Consider these benefits:
- Shorter treatment time: Metal braces may take two years or more to correct dental problems. Invisalign® Express produces noticeable results in a fraction of the time – less than six months, in some cases. The shorter treatment period means fewer trips to the dentist, as well.
- Lower cost: Your Invisalign® removable trays will be designed with special software and crafted by an Invisalign®-certified dental lab. No regular maintenance, along with the short treatment time, results in less cost than traditional orthodontic therapy. In addition, Dr. Reger works with many insurance companies and financing institutions that offer affordable payment plans for orthodontic treatment.
- Minimal or no discomfort: Metal wires, brackets, and rubber bands are known to irritate patients’ mouths and cause sores. With custom-fitted, plastic Invisalign®, you will never experience poking wires, loose brackets, or painful rubber bands.
