Hulme Orthodontics

Invisalign

Crooked teeth can lower your confidence, making you self-conscious in professional and romantic endeavors and affecting your oral health.

If the idea of traditional braces doesn't appeal to you, Invisalign® clear aligners are a more discreet, comfortable orthodontic option.

Why should you visit Hulme Orthodontics in San Antonio, TX, if you are interested in Invisalign?

Invisalign Is a Comfortable, Discreet Way to Get Straight Teeth

Virtually Invisible Aligners

Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit snugly against your teeth, so they will feel as natural as they look. Because they are made with clear plastic, coworkers, classmates, and peers will hardly notice you are undergoing orthodontic treatment.

Comfortable Choice

While metal brackets and wires can irritate your cheeks when they snap out of place, Invisalign aligners have smooth edges and are a great option for teens who play contact sports.

Completely Removable

One of the primary reasons Dr. Richard D. Hulme recommends the Invisalign is its removable trays. While brackets and wires make proper brushing and flossing difficult, Invisalign allows you to maintain good oral hygiene throughout your treatment plan.

Invisalign Is Limited to Mild & Complex Cases

Although Invisalign aligners can correct various types of misalignment, it is important to note that severe issues may require braces. During a free consultation, Dr. Hulme will perform a thorough smile assessment to determine which treatment approach is best for your needs. If he believes that traditional braces are the most appropriate treatment, you may still qualify for clear ceramic braces that are far less noticeable than metal brackets and wires.

Are there other factors to consider before choosing Invisalign as your orthodontic treatment?

Invisalign Is  an Especially Good Choice If You:

Value Discretion

Adults and teens typically favor Invisalign because it is much less noticeable than traditional metal braces

Are Committed to Treatment

In order for clear aligners to do their job, they need to be worn at least 20 to 22 hours each day. You must be able to remember and commit to wearing your aligners at all times, except for meals.
