What are clear braces?
Clear braces, or Invisalign, are a method of teeth straightening that consist of a series of different removable plastic aligners that are custom-made for your mouth. These can be used to correct crowding, spacing, and issues with your bite. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and is comfortable and removable.
What are the benefits of clear braces?
There are many benefits of clear braces. First and foremost, they don’t take away from your smile. Traditional metal braces can be distracting and uncomfortable. Invisalign aligners are clear and almost undetectable when they are in your mouth. They are also convenient, and do not offer the limitations that traditional braces do because you remove them while you eat.
What equipment is used?
This is the best part! Our new digital scanner, the iTerio Element 2, gives us accurate images of your teeth to make clear braces that fit your mouth perfectly. This means, no more messy impressions! These images also give us a permanent record of your bite. You can see what we see – and keep track of changes over time. We’re able to catch signs of tooth wear and gingivitis much earlier than ever before. You’re now able to visualize your treatment outcome, make real-time adjustments to simulations and easily project corrections, extractions, more.
How often will I need to get my aligners checked?
With Invisalign, you will come see us every six weeks for a quick progress check. This is to ensure that everything is going smoothly and your teeth are aligning as planned. At these appointments, we will make any necessary adjustments and changes to your care plan. The total treatment with Invisalign will take about 9-15 months depending on the needs of your teeth. In this time, you will likely go through between 18 and 30 aligners, though this may vary as well.
If you are looking to improve your smile, but don’t want to deal with the inconvenience and look of traditional braces, Invisalign may be for you.
