Invisalign has become more and more popular over the last few years.  So, you may be asking yourself, where can I get the Best Invisalign in McKinney!  There are so many advertisements on tv and through email and more and more adults are wanting to straighten their teeth, that the term Invisalign has become very well known.  Invisalign is one of many brand names of active clear retainers that are used to straighten your teeth.  Smiles Hollywood Orthodontics has been an authorized user for Invisalign for many years.  However, we are very blessed and fortunate at our office to have our very own Certified Lab Technician to make our very own brand of both active and passive Clear Aligners as well as many other orthodontic appliances. As a matter of fact, Smiles Hollywood Orthodontics is one of the only offices in McKinney to have our very own certified lab technician, so at Smiles Hollywood Orthodontics, the majority of our Clear Active Aligner patients, choose our own special brand of Clear Aligners and don’t choose the Invisalign brand as much at all now.  We have been using it for over 10 years now, and the results speak for themselves. So come judge for yourself! 

When you are wanting to know where to go for the Best Invisalign in McKinney, Smiles Hollywood Orthodontics is absolutely your best choice. Here are some great reasons to choose our office for your Invisalign or Clear Active Aligner treatment:

First of all, when you choose to do your Clear Active Aligner treatment at Smiles Hollywood Orthodontics, you will be seen and monitored every appointment by our orthodontist and our certified lab technician! We are one of the very few offices in McKinney that has a certified lab technician, so it’s a huge perk to do your Clear Active Aligner treatment at Smiles Hollywood Orthodontics! At Smiles Hollywood Orthodontics, you will get excellent Clear Active Aligner treatment, as well as results because you are being monitored by an orthodontist each month!  Unlike many do-it-yourself aligners, where there is no orthodontist following your treatment, we know the best treatment results happen when an orthodontist is closely monitoring your progress. This is so important to getting the successful results that you are wanting and that you deserve! 

 Another thing to consider on where is the Best Invisalign in McKinney is the turnaround time on our own special brand of Clear Active Aligners.  Since we have our own Certified Lab Technician in our office who works exclusively for Smiles Hollywood Orthodontics, we can get your aligners made within a week, or even sooner if necessary.  If it’s an emergency of some type, we can make a Clear Active Aligner the same day, if needed!   This is super helpful if a patient loses or breaks one of their aligners.  With the name brand Invisalign, the patient would have to wait 3 to 6 weeks to get an aligner tray made for them.  This is because with the Invisalign brand, we have to send off your aligner scan to another state and then to another country and then wait several weeks to get your aligners since they are made in another country and then sent back to our orthodontic office. So, having our certified lab technician in our office is very helpful and amazingly convenient for faster turnaround times for our patients! 

Another factor to consider when looking for the Best Invisalign in McKinney is the cost of the treatment.  Sure, there are offices, including ours, that do the brand Invisalign, however, since we have our own certified lab technician in our office, our fee can be less than Invisalign brand or other brands too because we have no middle man.  With Invisalign brand treatment, a lot of the expense is paying for shipping back and forth to another state and another country with each set of trays.  In our office, no shipping is needed with our Clear Active Aligner treatment because all your trays are custom made in-house at our office.   So, we can pass this savings on to you; our patient! 

Another good reason that you should choose Smiles Hollywood Orthodontics when looking for the Best Invisalign in McKinney is because with Invisalign treatment, the patient often requires having these little white bumps or attachments put on each of their teeth in order to get the teeth to move.   When you wear Smiles Hollywood Orthodontics’ special brand of in-house Clear Active Aligners, there are NO bumps or attachments at all put on your teeth.  So, if you have a special event or are taking pictures, you can take your Aligners out of your mouth and there will be nothing unsightly on your teeth. This is the whole reason you want to do Clear Active Aligner treatment instead of braces in the first place!  

So you may be asking yourself how the process works with our own special brand of in-house Clear Active Aligners at Smiles Hollywood Orthodontics.  That’s a great question!  First, our new patient makes an appointment with our office and one of our doctors will do a full orthodontic exam.  This exam is an in depth exam that includes x-rays!  This exam is completely complimentary!  In other words, we charge you absolutely nothing for this exam.  At the exam, the orthodontist will let you know if you are a candidate for Clear Active Aligner treatment.  Not all patients are good candidates for this treatment, especially if there are problems with your bite.  Clear Active Aligners can only treat so much and sometimes compromises will need to be made when this treatment is chosen, so for some patients, braces may be the better option. A lot of our Clear Active Aligner patients are adults who had braces as teenagers and over time, their teeth have shifted some and are not completely straight any more, so they are wanting to straighten their teeth again.  Clear Active Aligners are a perfect solution for this situation.  

We also have some teenagers that have a good bite, but want to straighten their teeth and don’t want to wear braces, so they are also good candidates for Clear Active Aligners.  However, we are cautious about having some teenagers wear Clear Active Aligners because since you can easily remove them, we depend heavily on the patient to be diligent in wearing the aligners at least 22 hours per day! If Aligners are not worn well, our goals cannot be achieved. Also Clear Active Aligners must be taken care of properly and carefully since they are made out of a thermoplastic and can crack or break. However; Most teenagers do a great job with our Clear Active Aligners! 

After the initial exam, our Smiles Hollywood Orthodontic treatment coordinator will go over your contract and fees including any orthodontic insurance that you may have.  If you are ready to get started with your treatment, then records can be taken the same day. We will take the first set of impressions that day and then you will come back the following week and get your first set of Clear Active Aligners!   The treatment time varies depending on how many aligners are needed to fully straighten the patient’s upper and lower teeth!  Treatment time may be anywhere from 4-18 months on average.
