Orthodontics - Straighter Teeth with Invisalign and Perfect Start

Straight Teeth with Clear Braces

Over the years, research and development have made the once embarrassing wearing of braces a less traumatic experience. If your dental health requires braces for either structural or cosmetic conditions, you now have the option to select clear braces.

Clear Braces for Adults and Teenagers

invisalign-clear-alignersTitensor Dental offers a new solution to the old wires and metal braces with Invisalign – a way to straighten teeth by the use of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners. The Invisalign system achieves the same results as embarrassing metal braces that used to correct teeth if they were too crowded, too far apart, or too crooked. Invisalign has proved to be effective in clinical research and dental practices to straighten teeth nationwide.

How Invisalign Invisible Braces Work

Dr. Titensor or his dental hygienists makes an impression of your teeth and develops a treatment plan. The office then submits your information to Invisalign and with their 3-D computer technology, Invisalign creates your sets of customized aligners. By wearing each set of the aligners over a two-week period, you move your teeth gradually producing a straighter set of teeth. During your treatment, you can remove the clear braces and eat, brush, and floss as you normally would.

How Long Does Invisalign Straightening Take?

You want to wear your Invisalign clear braces full-time, day and night, because the aligners only work when you wear them. Remember, Dr. Titensor created a treatment plan for your individual dental requirements. Your dental situation determines the number of clear braces sets you need and how long you need to wear them; however, most treatments produce desired results in 12 months or less.

Are Invisalign Clear Braces Effective?

Yes. Dentists across the United States treat patients with Invisalign clear braces. Dr. Titensor may suggest clear braces if your teeth are too crowded, have spaces, or have shifted since wearing braces at an earlier age, and you want to feel more confident during the aligning process.

invisalign-clear-plasticHow Do I Start My Invisalign Treatment?

You begin by making an appointment with Titensor Dental to schedule a careful examination of your teeth. Trained and certified in Invisalign orthodontics, Dr. Titensor will determine if Invisalign is the right product for you.

Are Invisalign Clear Braces Affordable?

As with the old, embarrassing, metal braces, the cost of Invisalign clear braces varies. The complexity of the treatment determines your expense. Most dentists charge the same price for Invisalign clear braces as they do for traditional, metal braces. Normally, if your dental insurance provides for traditional braces, clear braces are covered, as well.

Get The Perfect Start™ System with Titensor Dental

Dr. Titensor and his dental team at Titensor Dental, in Flower Mound, Texas, are concerned about your smile and dental needs at any age, but they do believe the sooner the better to start dental check ups and decide on a dental régime. For their younger patients ages 4-7, they now offer a new system that replaces traditional orthodontics: The Perfect Start System. Perfect Start is just as its name suggests; it is a start-up system to help your child's teeth come in properly. Its use provides no discomfort, and it is a natural way to guide your child's teeth to perfect alignment. However, Perfect Start is also an effective teething straightening for preteens, teens, and adults.

How Do I Know if My Child Needs The Perfect Start System?

After a thorough dental checkup around age 4 or 5, Dr. Titensor will discuss possible dental conditions your child may develop that warrant Perfect Start. For example, if he sees likely crowding of the teeth, he will recommend Perfect Start. The Perfect Start device provides for natural jaw expansion and guides the teeth to erupt in a straight manner. If an overbite is present, it is vital that The Perfect Start System is used between the ages of 4 and 7 while your child is still growing. Other dental issues Perfect Start shows effective correction are a gummy smile, a crossbite, and an open-bite. In addition, Dr. Titensor may recommend Perfect Start for habitual behavior such as thumb sucking or snoring.

How Does The Perfect Start System Work?

For patients between the ages of 4 and 7, the Perfect Start System works with the natural forces of tooth eruption. The soft, comfy, removable device tenderly guides the erupting teeth into their perfect positions. In addition, Perfect Start aids in the correct growth and alignment of the lower jaw while tending to facial aesthetics, as well.

If your child is between the ages of 4 and 7, Perfect Start is a three-step process:

  1. Habit-Corrector: The habit-corrector eliminates or improves current oral habits that can damage your child's dental health. He or she wears the habit-corrector at night while sleeping. With a design similar to that of a pacifier, your child will become used to wearing a device in his or her mouth every night. This step lasts about one to four months.
  2. Second Phase: Dr. Titensor will give your child a device specifically sized for your child to wear every night. It aids the incoming teeth into their proper places, corrects jaw relations, and expands your child's arches for the incoming adult teeth. Your child will wear this device for two to five months.
  3. Final Phase: The final treatment begins with a device that accommodates incoming adult teeth. It begins when your child has at least four permanent teeth. This phase is extremely important because his or her adult teeth are forming and the gum tissue fibers are starting to attach the teeth in the mouth. Perfect Start works perfectly to ensure the teeth erupt into proper alignment and prevents shifting.

Dr. Titensor knows that traditional orthodontics are an effective means for teeth straightening; however, with Perfect Start your child can successfully achieve straight teeth in the privacy of your own home without wearing uncomfortable metal braces. In addition, while correcting and preventing orthodontic issues, Perfect Start results are achieved in less time as compared to traditional orthodontics, which allows for less cost.

What if I Have an Older Child or If I am Interested in Perfect Start?

Perfect Start is just as effective for older children from ages 8 and up. The same soft, comfy, removable device is available for preteens (8 -12) and for teens and adults (13+). No longer is there a need to wear metal braces or aligners to achieve straight teeth! The steps are similar to those for 4-7 year olds, with some variations.

Benefits of the Perfect Start System

Dr. Titensor and his dental team work hard to bring their patients the most up-to-date dental technology with the most benefits. When you choose the Perfect Start System, you experience the following benefits:

  • You achieve a perfect smile with a device that works as well as braces, plastic aligners, or surgery.
  • You prevent crooked teeth versus correcting crooked teeth.
  • You can use Perfect Start at any age.
  • You achieve permanent results.
  • You experience no discomfort.
  • You use a device that is safe and natural.
  • You achieve faster results than with traditional orthodontics.
  • You have a cost savings.

BUT WAIT!

These are the just the dental benefits of the Perfect Start System. Perfect Start is also beneficial in the treatment of pediatric Sleep-Disordered Breathing (SDB). SDB is an all-inclusive term for breathing difficulties, ranging from mild snoring to severe airway obstruction during sleep. When your child's breathing is disrupted, his or her body recognizes the disruption as choking, therefore, slowing the heart rate, raising the blood pressure, arousing the brain, and disrupting sleep. In its efforts to maintain elevated standards to provide overall, general health care, Titensor Dental's up-to-date research learned the Perfect Start device aids in correcting SDB, once again setting the standards in patient care in Flower Mound, Texas.

Causes of Sleep-Disordered Breathing

When your child's nasal and upper airway is constricted, the cause is usually an underdeveloped mouth and jaw: crooked teeth, crowded teeth, or breathing through the mouth. The Perfect Start system works to guide your child's teeth into their proper position, expanding and fully developing his or her mouth.

How Can I Tell if My Child Has Sleep-Disordered Breathing?

Does it sounds like a train is traveling through your child's room at night? Loud soring is the first tell-tale sign that your child may have Sleep-Disordered Breathing. Gasping and snorting sounds may make you wonder if a bull is spending the night with your child. These sounds stem from your child waking up from his or her sleep struggling to breathe. Dr. Titensor knows that interrupted sleep in children can cause long-term side effects.

Consequences of Sleep-Disordered Breathing

When your child does not get a good night's sleep, she or he may become irritable, may require sleep during the day, and may have difficulty concentrating in school. On the other hand, your child's behavior could become hyperactive. These behaviors could possibly lead to the following consequences of SDB.

  • Social: Loud snoring can become a social issue if your child shares a room with siblings or avoids sleepovers because of embarrassing loud snoring.
  • Behavior and Learning: If your child suffers from sleep-disordered breathing, he or she may exhibit disruptive behavior at home or at school. Attention deficit disorders (both ADD and ADHD) have been linked to poor sleep.
  • Enuresis: If your child is a bed wetter, the over production of urine created by sleep-disordered breathing may be the cause.
  • Growth: Sleep-disordered breathing could affect the production of growth hormones stymieing proper development.
  • Obesity: If your child has sleep-disordered breathing, his or her body may be resistant to insulin or experience daytime fatigue, resulting in decreased physical activity.

How Does Perfect Start Rectify the Consequences of Sleep-Disordered Breathing?

Dr. Titensor and his dental staff thrive on offering time-tested procedures to their patients. Researchers and developers have carefully design the Perfect Start System, adaptable to each patient's individual needs. Dr. Titensor's ability to determine the optimal Perfect Start System for your child makes him the dentist you want to correct your child's SDB.
