Clear Invisalign braces are a great alternative to traditional metal braces. Designed to be as invisible as possible, these aligners allow you to straighten your teeth in an unobtrusive manner. The appliances look like a series of whitening trays or clear retainers, and are worn for a minimum of 20-22 hours each day.
Invisalign braces are:
- Aesthetically pleasing
- Removable for meals, brushing, and flossing
- Perfect for social events or professional environments
- Safe for athletic activities
- Comfortable, as no sharp wires or brackets are involved
Your Orthodontic Evaluation
First, we will take a series of x-rays, pictures, and impressions of your teeth. Our dentists will evaluate your bite and create a plan to move your smile into the proper alignment. The information is then sent off to Invisalign laboratories, where your series of customized aligners are made.
We can correct a number of different bite discrepancies, such as crowding, unwanted spacing, overbites and some types of underbites. These 100% customizable aligners hug each tooth like a glove, allowing them to follow the contours of each tooth. Using mild pressure, the trays gradually shift your teeth into the desired position.
Change your Invisalign trays out every two weeks. At each stage, you will be able to see just how much closer your teeth are to the smile that you deserve. Invisalign trays are easy to care for; just use the Invisalign cleaning kit, or brush them with regular toothpaste. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign braces can be removed during meals, and will not accumulate food particles and be difficult to clean later. This is one of the many reasons Invisalign allows you to keep your teeth as healthy as possible throughout your orthodontic correction. As if that is not enough, our patients find that the smooth aligners are much more comfortable than metal braces.
