What Is Invisalign?
Teeth that are straight not only offer an attractive focal point for your smile — they are also usually healthier and provide greater comfort when eating or speaking. Common orthodontic problems, like crooked, crowded, or misaligned teeth, often result in dental problems that may be more time-consuming or challenging to overcome. For this reason, the general dentists at ACE Dental of Hewitt are thrilled to offer the advanced orthodontic option of Invisalign. This removable aligner system features clear mouth trays that gradually reposition teeth to improve function and appearance. As a discreet option, Invisalign clear aligners are easy to remove and may offer a viable alternative to traditional metal braces. Book a consultation with one of our certified Invisalign dentists and learn if this option can help you meet your smile goals!

Are You a Good Candidate for Invisalign?
There are many factors and conditions that may influence the alignment of your teeth, from genetics and thumb-sucking as a child to missing teeth and trauma to the face. Misaligned teeth can cause a range of oral health issues, including an uneven bite, worn teeth, discomfort when speaking and chewing, oral pain, and poor self-esteem. Invisalign orthodontics may be ideal for teens and adults who desire straighter teeth without the challenges often faced with bracket and wire braces. As a removable option, Invisalign can also be beneficial for those who play instruments or sports. Invisalign can help treat orthodontic issues, like:
- Narrow arches
- Spaces between teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Open bite or overbite
- Underbite or crossbite
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign aligners are made from durable, clear material and gradually align your teeth through a series of customized mouth trays. We will start the Invisalign process by taking easy iTero digital impressions of your mouth and sending these images to the Invisalign lab where your custom aligners will be made. When they are ready, we will have you return to receive your initial trays with instructions from our team. You will need to keep your aligners in at least 20 – 22 hours every day, ideally taking them out only before cleaning your teeth, drinking, and eating. Every 1 – 2 weeks, you will be advised to move on to your next set of trays as they gently shift your teeth closer to their proper positions.
After Your Orthodontic Care
We will help you set up visits every other month so our team can track your orthodontic progress. While treatment times differ among cases, patients undergo Invisalign treatment for 6 – 24 months on average. Once your bite is in alignment, it is crucial to keep your teeth from moving into their original locations by using orthodontic retainers. Vivera® retainers by Invisalign are made with the same materials based on an iTero impression taken at the end of your treatment. Once your Invisalign retainers arrive at our Hewitt, TX office, we will have you return to try them in and will discuss how to wear and care for these appliances. Our dentists will continue to watch the alignment of your teeth and bite during your routine visits.
Insurance Coverage for Orthodontics
A portion of orthodontic treatments, like Invisalign, may be covered under dental insurance. Our office will review your coverage and determine any out-of-pocket fees. ACE Dental of Hewitt proudly accepts several convenient payment methods. At your initial consultation, we can discuss your estimated costs and how our office might help to make your treatment more affordable, including payment plans and special financing.
