Invisibly Straighten Your Smile With Clear Aligners at Our Winfield Location in Laredo

Traditional braces straighten your teeth – but not without some stress and discomfort. If you want straight teeth without the hassles of metal braces, clear aligners at our Winfield location in Laredo may be right for you! Davenport Dental Group offers OrthoFX aligners to help you achieve the smile of your dreams. You’ll discover many advantages when you consider OrthoFX vs. braces:

  • More Comfortable Straightening – Your gums and lips won’t get irritated by metal wires or brackets. Smooth plastic won’t create uncomfortable friction.
  • Removable Aligners – It’s much easier to enjoy foods like popcorn and corn-on-the-cob when you can take out your aligners. No more food caught in braces! You can even remove them for special occasions.
  • Nearly Invisible Treatment – Your dentist may be the only one aware of your orthodontic treatment. OrthoFX aligners are virtually invisible to everyone else!
  • Easy Oral Hygiene – It’s simple to keep your teeth fresh and clean when you can remove your aligners to brush and floss.
  • Simple Process – You simply wear each set of custom-made aligners for about two weeks before moving to the next set in the series. Unlike braces, you won’t need any uncomfortable adjustments.

To see if OrthoFX is right for you, call 956-517-2695 to schedule a consultation.

We Create a Custom Orthodontic Treatment Plan for You

Research has shown that removable aligners are effective in treating crowding, gaps, underbites, overbites, and crooked teeth. At least one study has shown they can correct anterior crossbite, which involves top teeth resting behind bottom teeth.

Dr. Davenport will examine you with high-tech equipment like digital X-rays to identify the orthodontic issues you need to correct. He will then create a custom treatment plan for you using special 3-D software and send the plan to an OrthoFX lab where your aligners are made.

When your aligners arrive, you simply:

  • Wear each set for about two weeks
  • Keep them in about 22 hours a day, removing them for meals and oral hygiene
  • Visit our office for periodic progress checks

Removable clear aligners have no metal pieces to rub against your mouth and no wires to tighten. You should only feel a slight pressure when switching your aligners. Traditional metal braces can take up to three years to work completely. Many of our patients experience the same straight results after about a year of wearing clear aligners.

Add Other Smile Improvements for an Even More Stunning Smile

When your treatment is complete, you may want to further improve your smile with additional cosmetic dental solutions. You have many options, including:

  • Professional Teeth Whitening – Your new smile will stand out even more if you brighten it several shades! You can choose in-office or at-home treatments.
  • Dental Bonding – Your smile will look flawless with a bonding treatment, which involves covering imperfections like stained or worn teeth with tooth-colored composite resin.

You can even combine multiple treatments for a smile makeover!

To achieve a straight smile you can be proud of with clear aligners at our Winfield location in Laredo, call us today at 956-517-2695.

Common Questions About Clear Aligners

What does OrthoFX look like on teeth?

OrthoFX aligners are constructed from a transparent plastic, and they fit snugly over your teeth. They are not obvious in your smile due to this fact. Unless you point them out, colleagues and others might not even know you are wearing OrthoFX aligners. Make sure not to utilize abrasive toothpaste on your aligners as this can make them more susceptible to staining.

Are OrthoFX results permanent?

Just like other types of orthodontic therapy, teeth can shift out of place if you do not wear a retainer. Once you’ve finished your OrthoFX treatment, your dentist will advise you on when and for how long to use a retainer. Many patients wear their retainers only while they sleep.

Which is better, OrthoFX or Smile Direct Club?

One of Smile Direct Club’s marketing points is that you will not need to frequently see the dentist. Yet regular progress checks are a vital part of orthodontic care. Unlike SDC, we examine you using innovative technology like digital X-rays and intraoral cameras to create your treatment plan. During periodic appointments, we ensure your teeth are moving as anticipated and can make any kind of needed changes.
