Some of our patients never wore traditional braces as a child, however, today they seek to have teeth that are in better alignment. Another group of patients may in fact have worn braces in earlier years but still hope for straighter teeth. Through advanced dental technology at Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics at Pearland, TX, custom straightening trays, such as Invisalign, can correct the teeth. Invisalign straightening trays uses a series of custom-made aligner trays to gradually move the teeth straight. These almost invisible fit tightly on the teeth and are kept on for at least 22 hours a day. The aligners are typically only removed for teeth brushing, eating, and drinking certain liquids. Clear tooth aligners, such as Invisalign from our dentists at Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics can effectively enhance the teeth and create a dazzling smile.

"I was terrified of dentists until I became a patient of Dr Devlin. I "was" instilled with a fear of dentists since childhood in Australia (snakes, spiders and dentists are MEAN over there), maturing to adulthood I figured that ignorance was bliss and that if no teeth were black and/or falling out then I didn't need to see a dentist. Now, in my 30's, my wisdom teeth erupted and I was having issues so HAD to see a dentist, I eventually conceded that it was time to face my fear so I went to see the lucky Dr Devlin. (Who my husband had already been seeing) I brought my husband in room for moral support, Dr Devlin and his tech thought that was amusing, my husband was embarrassed but I was "happy wife". I needed my wisdom teeth removed and had more than a dozen cavities. (Oops!) For those if you afraid of needles, I've never felt a single needle stick for local anaesthetics administered by Dr Devlin. He is understanding of my irrational fear and of my medical issues and I always leave with a smile. Dr Devlin and his team are fantastic, they're flexible, cheerful, and I love their customer service. I have always been greeted by my first name as when I walk in the door, Dr Devlin asks about hubby and my fur babies at every visit (I've now had a visit or two, ya know, teeth with more holes than Swiss cheese) My irrational fear gives me some insane facial expressions and poorly timed nervous talking sessions during dental work which is less than ideal but have caused moments of uncontrollable laughter for everyone else in the room. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would."- L.S. / Yelp / Sep 28, 2018
"NEW UPDATE!!9/26/18I had my teeth cleaned by the most knowledgeable dental hygienist ever. She was able to answer my questions while performing the most thorough cleaning possible. If you have not tried this dental office, and are looking for a great place to call your dental home, it will be impossible to find better. 9/11/17Today was my second visit to Highland, and again the experience was absolutely perfect. In fact, soboerfect, that I am going back tomorrow to get some fillings repaired and replaced. If you are looking for a new dentist, I have no problem at all recommending Highland. ORIGINAL POSTAfter spending over 20 years with an amazing dentist here in Pearland, my insurance forced me to look for a new dental home. Honestly, I was more than nervous, I was worried and extremely hesitant to make an appointment with my selected new dentist. Finally, I made an appointment and forced myself to go. When I arrived, I almost rescheduled and left for the day. I stayed, and I could not be happier. First, the young lady at the front desk went out of her way to help get my insurance information set up, and just shoot the breeze to help me relax. After no wait at all, I was welcomed by the young lady who was ready to do exrays and clean my teeth. She could not have been any kinder, or more thorough, throughout my entire exam. She actually did techniques I have never had done in 20 years, including photographing each tooth. Once the Dr came in, he was as personable as any Dr I have ever been around. He also was extremely thorough, and explained everything he was seeing, in great detail. In closing, I can only say, my day at Highland Dental could not have gone any better."- J.H. / Google / Sep 27, 2018

What to Expect
If it is decided that clear aligner trays using Invisalign is the recommended option for orthodontic needs, the first stage begins with specialized X-rays of the mouth so that the aligners can be made. Our dentists and the staff at Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics give each patient the knowledge so you know how to take care of and wear their trays, and explain to the patient about how important it is to keep in the aligners in for the majority of the day. Straightening aligners are usually worn for approximately 10-14 days before the next set of aligners are then given. This is determined based on the progression of the teeth movement. At each check-up at Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics, our dentists will give the patient an accurate measure of how many more weeks they will be required to wear Invisalign.
After the teeth are straightened with Invisalign, it is necessary that the patient use an Invisalign Vivera retainer device to maintain the results. The majority of individuals need to keep their retainer in place at night. To ensure the teeth remain straight, patients should proactively visit our dentists at Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics a couple of times a year and proactively incorporate a diligent at-home oral regime.
The fee to cover Invisalign will differ based on the complications pertaining to the orthodontic case, and the amount of sets of aligners that will be recommended. Insurance may cover some of the cost. This varies based on the patient's benefits. The staff at Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics will confirm what the patient's coverage entails so that a realistic fee can be detailed by our dentists during the patient's initial appointment.
