What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment helps straighten teeth without using traditional metal braces. This innovative, discrete orthodontic treatment involves custom-made, clear plastic aligners that cover the teeth and gently pull them into the desired position over time.
It is an excellent way to align your smile with minimal inference with your daily life. The aligners are virtually invisible, making it difficult for people to notice that you’re in orthodontic treatment.
While Invisalign treatment times vary depending on the patient’s specific needs, the average treatment period is about 12-18 months. This procedure can treat common orthodontic issues in teens, adults, and children, including:
- Open bite
- Gapped teeth
- Overlapping or overcrowded teeth
If you have any of these issues, you should visit Lake Shore Dental to see if you could benefit from Invisalign in Waco, TX.
How Does Invisalign Work?
The first step for Invisalign treatment is a consultation with our dentists to see if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign braces. Afterward, Dr. Waggener and Dr. Kucera will take 3D images of your mouth.
These images will help us create custom Invisalign aligner sets for you. You’ll need to wear each set for about one to two weeks before switching to the next. We properly calibrate each aligner set to ensure a specific tooth movement when you wear it.
You should start noticing your smile changing within a few months, and you may experience mild to moderate discomfort when starting a new set. After completing your treatment, our dentists will give you a retainer to protect your new smile. Dr. Waggener and Dr. Kucera will provide instructions you must follow to ensure you use your retainer properly to achieve the desired results.

- Comfortable to wear: With Invisalign aligners, you don’t have to worry about the discomfort caused by metal wires or brackets.
