Question: I’d like to have straighter teeth, but I’m too embarrassed to wear braces. Is there a good choice for me?

Answer: Yes! With Invisalign® aligner trays, you can enjoy all the benefits of straighter teeth without having to go through the embarrassment of wearing metal braces.

Question: How does Invisalign® work?

Answer: Your dentist will fit you with a custom-made aligner tray, which you’ll need to wear at least 22 hours each day.

Question: Can I remove the aligner tray myself?

Answer: Yes. You’ll be able to remove your tray to eat, brush and floss.

Question: How long does it take for Invisalign® to straighten my teeth?

Answer: Although the exact time may vary depending on the patient, it usually takes about 12 months for most adults.

Why Choose Live Oak Family Dental Care for Invisalign?

Because you’ll be able to remove your aligner trays while you eat, there are no restrictions on types of foods you can enjoy, which is not the case with metal braces.It’s much easier to maintain your normal brushing and flossing routine since you’ll be able to remove your aligner trays to perform your daily oral hygiene regimen.Most patients report that the aligner trays are more comfortable than traditional metal braces.


It’s obvious why so many patients are preferring to wear aligner trays to straighten their teeth. Not only does this technology work, but it’s also less embarrassing and you can remove your trays whenever necessary – as long as you be sure to wear them at least 22 hours each day.

Still, Invisalign® may not be the right choice for everyone. Young teenagers engaged in rough and tumble sports activities might end up damaging the aligners, for example. Younger patients might also be tempted to remove the trays more often and not always wear them for the recommended number of hours each day. Talk to your dentist to determine whether Invisalign® is the right choice for you or your family member.

Great experience at Live Oak in Leander! Friendly staff, the Dental Hygienist Janine was great and very sweet. The dentist Priscila Donangelo was amazing – very knowledgeable, attentive, explained me everything that was going on and need to be done.

Dr. Argandoña and Dr. Donangelo are both great dentists and are also very caring. They are thorough but not pushy and they try to explain everything very well. I have also found both of them to be gentle, warm and compassionate, as well as accessible when I need them!
