When it comes to orthodontics, we understand that not every patient prefers the same treatment. At Harmony Orthodontics, we strive to help our patients of all ages achieve beautiful, healthy smiles with a customized treatment plan that works for each individual. As a result, our orthodontist is proud to offer high-quality invisalign treatment, a teeth straightening alternative to traditional metal braces.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment consisting of a series of custom-made clear plastic aligners that fit over your teeth. These aligners are used to help straighten your teeth and improve your smile and your bite over time, without the need for traditional metal braces.
At Harmony Orthodontics, our invisalign treatment process starts with a consultation with our invisalign orthodontist, Dr. Tun. Dr. Tun will evaluate your smile, plan your teeth movement via a computer simulation, and finalize your customized invisalign treatment plan. Once the treatment plan is approved, our invisalign orthodontist will order a set of invisalign braces custom-made for you.
These tiny and barely noticeable attachments help your invisalign braces apply the right amount of force in the right direction, making complex teeth movement possible without traditional metal braces.
The SmartTrack material of invisalign braces provides better fit, better comfort, and makes it easier to insert and remove invisalign than any other invisible braces, moving your teeth more precisely and comfortably.
Invisalign braces can be worn by both teenagers and adults. These invisible braces are typically an excellent orthodontic solution for active teens and adult patients who want a virtually invisible method to improve their smiles without interrupting their busy life. Additionally, invisalign braces can be a perfect secondary treatment for people who have already had traditional braces but require additional orthodontics work.
Invisalign treatment offers patients several benefits. Benefits of invisalign braces compared to traditional metal braces include:
Nearly Invisible – With these invisible braces, no one will know you are straightening your teeth.
Removable – Since Invisalign is easily removable, there is no need to alter your diet or lifestyle.
Fewer Office Visits – No wires mean no frequent adjustments.
No more emergency visits are needed due to broken brackets or loose wires.
It depends on the specific case. For example, there are some orthodontic cases that our orthodontist may only treat with metal braces and other cases where Invisalign may be a great fit. During your initial consultation, Dr. Tun will let you know whether you are a good candidate for invisalign.
The invisalign treatment fee in the Tomball, TX area can vary from $3,500 to $6,000 depending on the complexity of your case. At Harmony Orthodontics, we offer interest-free financing to make these invisible braces affordable for everyone.
Yes! If you have found that your teeth have shifted since previous traditional metal braces treatment and do not want metal braces again, Invisalign is an effective teeth straightening alternative.
At Harmony Orthodontics, we recommend wearing your invisalign aligners for a minimum of 22 hours a day for optimal results.
