New studies indicate that people of all ages can benefit from fluoride. Dentists and researchers previously thought that fluoride was more effective at strengthening teeth while they were growing in the mouth. Hence, fluoride treatments were reserved for young children. Now, however, research has proven that topical fluoride can help strengthen adults’ teeth, too. With this in mind, Dallas dentist Dr. Hamlett and his team of dental hygienist and dental assistants in our Dallas dental office offer both fluoride varnishes for adults and a specialty fluoride toothpaste.

If you’re an adult with crowded, gapped or otherwise crooked teeth, you’ve probably avoided getting them straightened in order to avoid wearing embarrassing metal braces in adulthood. That’s understandable — no one wants to walk into an important meeting with a mouth full of metal. But did you know that you can straighten your teeth without those noticeable brackets and wires? Invisalign is an invisible solution to teeth straightening — and we’ve been using it to give adults the straight, beautiful smile they deserve for years. Keep reading to learn more about Invisalign in Dallas — it may be just the solution you’ve been looking for.
How Invisalign Works
Using 3D computer imaging to map out your entire treatment plan in advance, Invisalign allows you to see what your final result will be before you even put in your first invisible aligner. Once your treatment plan is in place, a series of custom trays are created to move your teeth, little by little. You’ll wear each aligner for two weeks before replacing it with the next in the sequence — and it takes most people anywhere from six to 15 months to complete the whole treatment. The result? A straight, beautiful smile you won’t ever want to hide again.
What Invisalign Treats
The Invisalign treatment works for a variety of problems, including:
- Crowded teeth
- Teeth with gaps or spaces
- Crossbite, when the upper and lower jaws are misaligned
- Underbite, when the lower teeth cover the upper teeth
- Overbite, when the upper teeth protrude too far over the lower teeth
Advantages of Invisalign
The benefits of Invisalign don’t stop at the fact that they’re invisible — some more include:
- Easy eating: Because Invisalign trays are removable, you can easily slip them out before meals to eat and drink just the way you always have.
- No special cleaning: Removable trays also make it easy to brush and floss your teeth like normal — no need to learn any time-consuming cleaning techniques.
- Comfortable: Because Invisalign uses clear plastic trays instead of bulky metal brackets and wires, you don’t have to worry about developing any sores or blisters in your delicate mouth.
