Straight, properly aligned teeth are an important part of a beautiful smile. Maybe you feel your smile could benefit from an alignment treatment, but you feel reluctant to wear traditional orthodontics. Invisalign® is a popular and effective alternative. This treatment system can comfortably and discretely alight your teeth with removable, virtually invisible aligner trays. The aligners feel so natural and are so clear that you will forget you are wearing them, and those around you won't even notice. We are proud to offer Invisalign® at our Forney office, and we can help determine if this orthodontic treatment is right for you. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.

We offer Invisalign® orthodontic treatment to patients in Forney, TX. Invisalign® uses a series of clear, comfortable, plastic trays to discreetly straighten your teeth. At Forney Family Dentistry, we also offer Invisalign® Express, which is effective for correcting slight alignment issues with an expedited treatment time.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
The Invisalign® procedure begins with a consultation. We will analyze your smile and take digital impressions. The impressions will be used to provide you with a digital preview of the results you can expect. They are also used in creating your customized Invisalign® mouthpieces. During your treatment period, gentle pressure from the mouthpieces will safely and effectively align your teeth.
You will wear your mouthpiece for about 20 - 22 hours a day. Aligners should only be taken out for eating, brushing, and flossing. Wearing them most of the day is easy, because they are supremely compatible with your day-to-day life. The mouthpieces are smooth, and always feel comfortable against the soft tissues of your mouth.
You will begin wearing the next aligner in the series about every two weeks. One of the benefits of Invisalign® is that you can see your teeth becoming straighter because they are not obscured by the hardware involved in traditional orthodontics. Overall treatment times vary per patient, but are usually comparable to the amount of time that traditional orthodontics would require.
Is Invisalign® Right for Me?
Invisalign® is a great orthodontic solution for patients who have healthy gums and teeth, but wish to achieve a straighter smile. Alignment problems treatable with Invisalign® include crooked or protruding teeth, overbite, underbite, crossbite, and crowding. For patients with severely misaligned teeth, our traditional braces might be a better option.
Invisalign® can be an excellent treatment for adults and teenagers alike. We offer Invisalign® Teen, which is a line designed especially for teenagers who wish to achieve straighter teeth. If you or your teenager would like to achieve a straighter smile, contact us today to schedule a consultation.
Invisalign® Express for a Fast Cosmetic Enhancement
For patients who have minor orthodontic issues, such as slight misalignment in the anterior teeth, we offer Invisalign® Express. This is an affordable and fast way to align your teeth, which is concentrated on providing an aesthetic enhancement. Using the same Invisalign® regimen of customized aligners, Invisalign® Express can correct minor alignment issues in as little as three months.
