Dr. Mauricio Rodriguez of Premier Dental is a professional in the Webster, Texas community who works with patients to provide general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry. He can also help patients say goodbye to the fear of traditional metal brackets and wire braces and hello to a clear alternative called Invisalign.
Dr. Mauricio Rodriguez describes Invisalign as a solution for patients who want to straighten their smile without unsightly metal wires and brackets. Invisalign uses aligner trays made of clear plastic. The trays are placed over the dental arch and gently reposition the teeth each day. When patients wear the aligner trays as directed, they can expect to improve their smile’s alignment gradually, with gaps, spaces, and crooked teeth being addressed.
Determining candidacy starts with an evaluation at Premier Dental. Dr. Mauricio Rodriguez and his team will evaluate a patient’s current smile and talk to them about the options available for enhancing their smile’s alignment. The best patients for this treatment are those with mild to moderate misalignment. Patients will need to comply with treatment to see the results in the desired period.
Patients who comply with treatment can expect to achieve their new smile in approximately one year, depending on the severity of their misalignment at the beginning of treatment. Patients are advised to wear their aligners for at least 20 hours a day, only removing them to eat, brush, or floss. Each tray in the patient’s series is worn for two weeks before progressing to the next tray. By the end of treatment, patients will have achieved a more beautifully aligned smile without the need for metal braces.
