Many patients were not candidates for traditional braces when they were young, however, today they wish to have straighter teeth. Another pool of individuals may actually previously wore braces at one time but still want straighter teeth. Because of advanced technology at Pat Booker Dental Care at Universal City, TX, invisible aligners, such as Invisalign, can align the teeth. Invisalign uses various sets of plastic aligner straightening trays to gently and slowly reposition the teeth into a straighter position. These see-through trays fit snugly on top of the teeth and are worn for the majority of the day. They are generally only taken off for drinking coffee or wine, eating, and teeth brushing. Invisalign from our dentists at Pat Booker Dental Care can rapidly straighten the teeth for a more attractive smile.
"I'm normally rather terrified of dentist offices because of my high gag reflex and the judgemental and almost belittling attitude of every previous dentist office I've been to has resulted in rather bad teeth. I was delightfully surprised that this office seems to understand that I'm trying to fix my dental issues while treating me with the care and respect I would expect as an adult. I've only been by one visit but I find myself not minding going back for repair and cleanings. Thank you for not being like the other offices!"- S.B. / Google / Mar 15, 2019

What to Expect
If the decision is made that Invisalign is the most effective solution for teeth straightening needs, treatment begins with digital imaging of the mouth so that the trays can be manufactured. Our dentists and the staff at Pat Booker Dental Care help each patient to understand how to wear and care for their aligners, and talk to the patient about the importance of making sure leave the aligners in for 20-22 hours a day. Aligning trays are to be worn for 2-3 weeks before the next round of aligners are then provided. This is based on the how quickly the teeth become aligned. When the patient comes in for their appointments at Pat Booker Dental Care, our dentists will provide the patient a better estimate of the length of time they will need to wear Invisalign.
Once the patient's teeth are in proper alignment, it is crucial that the patient wear an Invisalign Vivera setting retainer to continue to keep the results. Most patients need to wear their retainer in place when they sleep at night. For overall great dental health, patients should continue to visit our dentists at Pat Booker Dental Care twice a year and continue a diligent home oral plan.
The price for Invisalign will fluctuate based on the complexity pertaining to the individual's needs, and how many aligner phases that will be needed. Orthodontic insurance may cover half or more of the expense. This varies depending on the patient's coverage. The staff at Pat Booker Dental Care will solidify what the patient's benefits are so that an accurate fee can be given by our dentists during the patient's initial visit.
