Amarillo's Invisalign Specialists
From Dr. Eddy Sauer and Dr. Nathaniel Avirett
HOW Invisalign LOOKS
The single most compelling aspect of Invisalign is its nearly invisible appearance. We generally use the “5foot” rule when talking about Invisalign. Meaning, you can’t tell a person is wearing their retainer unless you’re within 5 feet. They’re that clear. This is a big benefit, particularly for adults.
TALKING AND EATING WITH Invisalign
One of our favorite aspects of Invisalign: you can eat anything! You can talk normally too! You don’t have to worry about what to eat, or what not to eat. This is a huge benefit, and a big deal for most patients who are choosing between braces and Invisalign, or nothing at all.
IS Invisalign PAINFUL?
The short answer is no. Really! Almost no Shemen Dental Invisalign patients report more than a "1" on a scale of 1-10 pain. It's far more comfortable than other straighteners.
HOW LONG DOES Invisalign TAKE?
The longest case we’ve seen took 23 months, just under two years. And it was a very difficult case. The shortest case only took 6 months! Usually, it takes teens 2 years to straighten their teeth with braces. Adults who use braces can go much longer. The average Invisalign patient goes for 12-14 months, including adults!
