Dr. Ryan has been an Invisalign® provider since 2005. He has been able to work on many adults during his career, along with teens that are interested in Invisalign®. For over 8 years, he was fortunate to work at a “Super-Elite” Invisalign® office, which means that they started more Invisalign® cases than over 99% of other treating doctors in the U.S.! What this means is he was able to understand and manipulate the Invisalign® appliance more than most so that his finished cases can be at the highest level. He has completed over 1000 cases and will be able to create the most unbelievable smile you can imagine without braces.
If you have always wanted to have a straighter smile but are hesitant to sign up for metal braces, dental technology has provided a possible answer: Invisalign®. This revolutionary technology utilizes a series of custom-made aligner trays that are virtually invisible. Now, you can have straight teeth and not have to deal with braces if you don’t want them! Dr. Pendleton is pleased to offer Invisalign® to our Leander, TX area patients.
Important Information about Invisalign®
Invisalign® involves wearing clear plastic aligner trays that are custom-made for each patient. After Dr. Pendleton fits you with your first set of trays, you will need to wear them for 20-22 hours each day, but you will be able to remove them to clean your teeth and eat your meals. Periodically, you will return to our office for quick checks where Dr. Pendleton will fit you with a new set of trays. Gradually, your teeth will shift into their new positions as long as you are wearing your aligners as instructed. He will make sure you are completely satisfied with your results and then will give you retainers to make sure that your smile lasts for a lifetime!
Other Benefits of Invisalign®
In addition to the fact that the aligner trays are virtually invisible, we believe Invisalign® offers our patients other benefits. Many people report that the aligner trays are much more comfortable than traditional metal braces. Because you can remove the trays when you clean your teeth and eat, your daily oral hygiene routine doesn’t have to change at all, and you won’t have to avoid certain foods – which is often the case with traditional braces.
Are You a Good Candidate for Invisalign®?
The only way to know for certain whether or not Invisalign® is right for you is to discuss it with Dr. Pendleton. While it’s true that this technology is a desirable alternative to metal braces for some patients, it may not be the right choice for everyone. Dr. Pendleton can review your dental history, discuss the advantages and disadvantages, and help you decide whether you’re a good candidate for Invisalign®.
