Straighten Teeth with Invisalign in River OakDiscreetly Correct Misalignments

Dentist shows female patient Invisalign trayDr. John Krell is proud to offer Invisalign as an alternative to traditional braces to straighten your teeth. They have helped many dental patients in Houston, Pasadena, South Houston, Sugar Land, Missouri City, and all of Harris County straighten their teeth and look great while doing it thanks to this revolutionary approach to orthodontics.

Invisalign is an invisible way to straighten your smile without braces. It uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without using metal wires or brackets. Invisalign has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthodontic practices nationwide. In fact, over 70% of all U.S. orthodontists are certified to treat patients with Invisalign.


How Does Invisalign Work?

To ensure a high degree of accuracy and comfort throughout your process, impressions will be taken of your teeth by our team. Using advanced imaging technology, we’ll transform these impressions into a highly accurate 3D digital image. With this image, we’ll create a computerized movie - called ClinCheck® - depicting the movement of your teeth from the beginning to the final position.

Your doctor will then review your ClinCheck file and adjust the depicted plan if necessary. From your approved ClinCheck file, a local Invisalign lab will use laser scanning to build a set of actual models that reflect each stage of your treatment plan.

Your customized set of aligners will be made using these models, and you’ll be able to pick them up from our practice, where we’ll show you how to put them on and clean them. You’ll wear each aligner for about two weeks. After wearing all of your aligners in the series, you get the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.
