Invisalign was established in 1997 and was approved by the FDA in 1998. At the Toothbar, we understand adults and teens worry about using traditional braces. The benefits of Invisalign are easy to see and include a lower average time spent wearing them. Healthline reports the use of clear liners can take as little as six months to straighten teeth. In some cases, the process can take up to two years.

At The Toothbar, we want you to feel comfortable when straightening your teeth. Traditional braces can take a long time to achieve their results, with the average time being 24 months. In some extreme cases, traditional braces can take three years to straighten a patient’s teeth.

The average time for traditional braces to work is 24 months, with Invisalign reporting the average time for aligners to work between 11 and 24 months. One of the reasons why Invisalign Downtown Austin visitors explore is so popular is the ease with which you can see your teeth realigning. After a few weeks, patients have reported seeing a change in the straightness of their teeth.

The Toothbar is a popular choice for Austin cosmetic dentistry, with clear aligners becoming popular with teenagers and adults. The ability to enjoy straighter teeth in a shorter time is just one of the reasons for the success of clear aligners. The benefits of aligners include the fact you wear your Invisalign liners for between 20 and 22 hours each day. The ability to remove aligners means you can continue to eat the foods you have always enjoyed. As a removable liner, you can remove them and clean them if food becomes trapped within.

At the Toothbar, our Austin Restorative dentists help our patients to make the right choice about braces and clean liners. Teenagers can be self-conscious about the use of braces, particularly when it comes to metal braces. Invisalign is a clear liner that is difficult to see. Removing the stigma of metal braces is one of the issues clear aligners have helped address.

Austin cosmetic dentistry at The Toothbar can improve life in several ways. Traditional braces require you to spend hours in an orthodontist’s office waiting to have your braces tightened. In contrast, Invisalign gently moves your teeth into the correct position with less pain than traditional braces. As the technology used in clear liners improves, the number of smile issues that can be helped has grown. Clear aligners can help you with underbites, overbites, and crossbites.
