Straighter teeth is something many people desire. A nice smile is one of the most attractive things about a person. However, wearing a mouth full of braces for two, three, or more years can be a major pain, both literally and figuratively.

Luckily, there is another option. Invisalign is an alternative to traditional braces. Learn more about the benefits Invisalign offers and why you should consider this exciting method of straightening teeth.

When you have straight teeth, your mouth is healthier in general and there is less chance of tooth decay and gum disease. Invisalign makes it possible for more people to straighten their teeth.

Invisalign is essentially invisible. You can straighten your teeth without unsightly metal in your mouth.

The average cost is similar to that of traditional braces, which makes it affordable for many families.

With Invisalign, the aligner trays are smooth and comfortable to wear. Traditional metal braces can be uncomfortable and cause irritation to the mouth.

Invisalign is removable, so you do not have to wear the system during special occasions, or when you’re eating. With normal metal braces, you are stuck with them for the entire straightening process.

Brushing and flossing are simple. Since the system is removable, you can brush and floss just like normal.

As you can see, Invisalign is an exciting option we provide at JT Orthodontics for those who want straighter teeth. If this is something that sounds interesting to you, talk to Dr. Jesse Teng and find out if it would work for your particular situation. Get started today, and before you know it you will be enjoying your straighter teeth.

You still need to take care of your teeth to keep your beautiful smile. Keeps these things in mind when you think about your oral care routine. Retainers Many patients do require a retainer after Invisalign treatment. This will be based on your unique situation. If a retainer is recommended by Dr. Jesse Teng, use it as directed. Retainers prevent your teeth from shifting back into their original position. You should also avoid hard, crunchy foods for the first couple of weeks as your teeth adjust. For younger patients, retainers are normally used until the wisdom teeth come in or are extra...

Gum disease (also known as periodontal disease) – There are five main types of gum disease, and each one can range from mild to severe.

At Mundy & Teng Orthodontics, we love to celebrate the holidays with vigor! Drs. Gary Mundy and Jesse Teng would love to share some unique ways of celebrating Thanksgiving from beyond the El Paso, TX area to the national level!

When Americans sit down to dinner on the last Thursday of November, the day that Abraham Lincoln designated as the day on which Thanksgiving would be celebrated, they do so thinking that the first Thanksgiving feast was held at Plymouth in 1621. According to National Geographic, the Spanish explorer Francisco Vásquez Coronado and his men celebrated a feast of Thanksgiving in Texas in 1541, giving Texas the distinction of being the first place where Thanksgiving was celebrated.
