Some of our patients never had traditional braces as a child, however, today they seek to have teeth that are in better alignment. Another group of patients may in fact have worn braces in earlier years but still hope for straighter teeth. Through advanced dental technology at The Rim Dental Care and Orthodontics at San Antonio, TX, custom straightening trays, such as Invisalign, can correct the teeth. Invisalign straightening trays uses a series of custom-made aligner trays to gradually move the teeth straight. These almost invisible fit tightly on the teeth and are kept on for at least 22 hours a day. The aligners are typically only removed for teeth brushing, eating, and drinking certain liquids. Clear tooth aligners, such as Invisalign from our dentists at The Rim Dental Care and Orthodontics can quickly enhance the teeth and create a dazzling smile.

What to Expect
If it is decided that clear aligner trays using Invisalign is the recommended option for orthodontic needs, the first stage begins with specialized X-rays of the mouth so that the aligners can be created. Our dentists and the staff at The Rim Dental Care and Orthodontics work with each patient to understand how to take care of and wear their trays, and explain to the patient about how important it is to keep in the aligners in for the majority of the day. Straightening aligners are usually worn for approximately 10-14 days before the next set of aligners are then given. This is determined based on the straightening progress of the teeth. At each check-up at The Rim Dental Care and Orthodontics, our dentists will give the patient an accurate measure of how many more weeks they will be required to wear Invisalign.
After the teeth are straightened with Invisalign, it is necessary that the patient use an Invisalign Vivera retainer device to preserve the results. The majority of individuals need to keep their retainer in place at night. To ensure the teeth remain straight, patients should proactively visit our dentists at The Rim Dental Care and Orthodontics a couple of times a year and proactively incorporate a diligent at-home oral regime.
The fee to cover Invisalign will differ based on the complications pertaining to the orthodontic case, and the amount of sets of trays that will be recommended. Insurance may cover a portion of the cost. This varies based on the patient's benefits. The staff at The Rim Dental Care and Orthodontics will calculate what the patient's coverage entails so that a realistic fee can be detailed by our dentists during the patient's initial appointment.
