Dr. William Shattuck is pleased to provide Invisalign — clear, removable aligners — for his dental patients at his Haslet, TX practice. Properly aligned, straight teeth aren't just beautiful; they're healthier and more comfortable. An improper bite and crooked teeth may lead to future dental problems that may be painful and expensive to fix. Customized to fit your teeth and your unique goals, Invisalign is more comfortable and attractive than traditional metal braces because they may be taken out to make cleaning your teeth and eating easier. If you're interested in having healthier teeth with the Invisalign system, make an appointment at Radiant Dental Care to get more information from Dr. Shattuck.
"I love this dentist office!!! I recently moved out to Rhome and was in search of a new dentist. I found one extremely close, which I should have realized that close does not mean better. I used to be so comfortable I could fall asleep while having my teeth cleaned. The other place was painful, tense, unprofessional, an unexpected bill (when I was told everything was covered), and worst of all it hurt for 3 days even brushing my teeth.Radiant Dental changed my mind forever. I was hesitant at first because of my last experience at the other place. The staff and hygenist are nothing but extraordinary. Dr. Shattuck made sure I was comfortable and welcomed any questions before having a filling done. He was the least painful dentist I have EVER been to when it comes to fillings. Thanks everyone for such a welcome and professional visit that I no longer have anxiety and can fall asleep in the chair while having my teeth cleaned once again."- I.E. / Google / Jan 28, 2020
"The best dentist and dental office ever. I went in for a consult about a tooth that had been pulled by another dentist and after the doctors diving into my dental history about my TMJ and he offered treatment not a bandaid. I am so happy to be doing Invisalign to straighten my teeth and fix my cross bite causing the TMJ issues. I am now more pain free and lessened headaches. I followed all his instructions and recommendations and what was supposed to take 18-24 months is only been 12 months and soon will be over and into retainers and mouth guard. I am so happy i found Radiant Dental. Without him i would be hooked on muscles relaxers that really did not help and may have needed surgery to correct my TMJ. Yes thank you and the staff is amazing. They help me and offered suggestions and advise with any questions i had from Invisalign to billing questions and concerns. This is the best place ever and I know that my husband who recommended them to me and he hates dentists but loves this place! So if your looking for a great dental office then this is where you need to stop looking and come to Radiant Dental."- A.B. / Google / Jan 07, 2020

There are several factors that may determine the alignment of your teeth: sucking your thumb as a child, genetics, missing a tooth or teeth, and trauma to your face. Dental misalignment may cause more oral health concerns, such as a bad bite (dental malocclusion), uneven wear on the enamel, difficulty chewing and speaking, plus jaw pain and toothaches. If Dr. Shattuck sees one of these issues in your annual examination, he can suggest an orthodontic treatment like Invisalign.
The Invisalign system is wonderful for both teens and adults who would like straighter, healthier teeth minus the hassle, pain, and look of braces. Even though the aligners should be worn for the majority of the day, Invisalign trays may be removed for cleaning your teeth and eating, plus for special occasions and physical activities. Because Invisalign aligners are much less obvious than traditional metal orthodontics that poke and cut your cheeks, your friends and family will typically not know that you're using them.
What To Expect
The initial Invisalign aligners will be made with impressions at Radiant Dental Care. When they are ready, you will come back to receive your initial trays with instructions from Dr. Shattuck. You need to keep your aligners in for at least 20 hours every day for your treatment to work, ideally taking them out only for cleaning and eating. In time, you'll go to your next set of trays as they carefully shift your teeth closer to alignment. You should have follow-ups about every 4 – 6 weeks at Radiant Dental Care to have your aligning trays assessed and to get new impressions done so your next trays can be ordered. How long you need to use Invisalign trays will differ depending on the initial condition of your teeth and your goals; however, many patients need to wear trays for around a year.
When your bite is aligned, it is crucial to stop your teeth from shifting into their original positions. Vivera retainers by Invisalign are made using the same materials to keep your teeth in their new position once your Invisalign treatment is done. Every retainer is made custom at the Invisalign dental lab based on impressions taken after your orthodontic treatment is done. Dr. Shattuck will discuss with you how many hours a day you should wear your retainer, plus how to clean it after it is sent from the laboratory. Dr. Shattuck will keep watching the alignment of your teeth and bite during your annual examinations to make sure your teeth stay in their new places.
Many of our patients find that part of their treatment cost is paid by insurance. Our office can determine your coverage and figure out your out-of-pocket fees. Radiant Dental Care offers several methods of payment if you are not using insurance. In your consultation, we can discuss an estimate of costs and how our office can help to make your Invisalign treatment affordable for you with payment plans and medical financing via CareCredit.
