If a patient has crooked or crowded teeth, Dr. Vela and Dr. Rodriguez may recommend Invisalign® in Kingsville, Texas. Invisalign is a series of clear aligners that are custom made to slip over your teeth and straighten them gently over time. Our dentists will supply you with a new set of aligners about every two weeks so that your teeth can continue to be guided to their ideal positions. At our office, we also offer ClearCorrect™ aligners.
Aligners have several advantages over traditional braces. ClearCorrect and Invisalign are nearly invisible, as they are made of clear plastic. In contrast, traditional braces are made of brackets and wires. Invisalign and ClearCorrect are smooth and comfortable, but braces have wires that can poke and irritate your mouth. Aligners are removable, so they and your teeth are easily cleaned. With braces, brushing and flossing requires much more effort and time. Because of the brackets and wires that make up traditional braces, there are many food restrictions to avoid food getting caught in or damaging your dental appliance. Because Invisalign and ClearCorrect are removable, you can continue to eat all of your favorite foods.
