Clear aligners are quickly becoming the favorite orthodontic appliance of our patients. They are made from a clear, flexible material that allows them to be comfortable, invisible when worn, and removable, getting rid of most inconveniences of braces. They are able to address the majority of bite and alignment concerns that traditional braces do.
Invisalign / Invisalign Teen
Invisalign is a proven-effective method of straightening teeth. In most cases, it is at least as effective as traditional braces but delivers a faster result. It relies on clear plastic aligners that are custom made for you, making them invisible when worn.
- Metal Braces: These are the classic braces design. Because of their visibility, they are most often used with children and teens, though adults may choose them as well.
- Lingual Braces:Lingual braces function just like traditional braces do. However, they go on the backs of the teeth rather than the fronts. This allows them to be hidden away.
- Clear Ceramic Braces: Clear braces use either clear material or tooth-colored ceramic to make the bracket. This reduces their visibility, making them an attractive choice.
Removable appliances are designed to further orthodontic treatment but give patients the option to take them out for certain activities or allow for fast treatment. All removable appliances must be worn according to the instructions of the doctor. Each day, they should be cleaned with toothpaste and placed in their container when not worn. While there may be some soreness at first, this will dissipate as the teeth adjust. However, if you have sores on the gums, contact us.
