Do you want straighter teeth but don’t love the idea of wearing traditional metal braces?
Fortunately, Invisalign® can address misalignment and gaps in your teeth with convenient clear aligners.
Learn how Dr. Brian Bell refines the smiles of patients in Lake Jackson, TX, with this invisible orthodontic treatment.
Why Choose Invisalign?
Since the aligners are clear, Invisalign is nearly imperceptible to others — especially when compared to other orthodontic options like braces.
You can remove the aligners, which means you’ll be able to enjoy your favorite foods without having to worry about damaging your appliance.
Invisalign is designed to be comfortable and easy to wear. The smooth clear aligners are custom-fit and won’t irritate your lips or gums.

Overlapping, misaligned, or crooked teeth don't just affect your smile's appearance – they impact its health, as well. Overlapping teeth can be incredibly difficult to brush and floss, even with professional equipment. The buildup of plaque on these teeth can be harmful, leading to tooth decay, gum disease, and even eventual tooth loss.
Straightening your teeth with Invisalign at Bell Dental can give you a chance to look better, feel more confident, and live a healthier life. To get started, contact our Lake Jackson practice today:

What Makes a Good Candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign can correct a host of orthodontic issues, but patients must meet certain criteria for treatment. Let’s take a closer look at what makes for an excellent candidate:
Mild to Moderate Alignment Issues
Invisalign is not suited for more complex malocclusion cases. If you have severe misalignment, alternative treatment methods such as traditional braces may be recommended.
Adherence to Treatment Guidelines
Invisalign treatment is fairly straightforward. However, you must be committed to following the instructions laid out by your dentist for best results, including wearing your clear aligners for 22 hours each day.
No Teeth Grinding
Excessive teeth grinding or bruxism can damage Invisalign trays, and a night guard cannot be worn with Invisalign. However, Invisalign can help resolve milder teeth grinding caused by misalignment. Your dentist will evaluate your bruxism to determine if clear aligners are right for you.
Good Oral Health
Any tooth decay or gum disease will need to be addressed before your Invisalign treatment begins. Treating your smile from the root up will help us provide you with a result that promotes both the appearance and well-being of your smile.

Caring for Your Aligners During Invisalign Treatment
- Clean your aligners with a soft-bristle toothbrush and gentle-formula toothpaste daily
- Do not eat or drink anything except water while wearing your aligners
- Always place your trays in their case when you’re not wearing them
- Rinse your aligners every time you remove them
- Brush and floss before placing aligners back in
Once you begin treatment, your dentist will go over what you should do to keep your Invisalign treatment as effective as possible.
