Clear aligners provide patients a method of moving teeth that is practically invisible. This type of orthodontic movement is ideal for patients who require limited tooth movement.
Treatment with any type of clear aligners move teeth gradually over time. Each aligner, or tray, moves teeth slightly. Trays are exchanged every few weeks until the ideal result is obtained.
While clear aligners are a great treatment option for certain patients, this approach does not correct skeletal issues such as a deep bit or incorrect jaw positioning.
One such clear aligner system is Invisalign®. Invisalign® uses comfortable aligners that are removable and invisible. A quick consultation at our office will determine if Invisalign® is the right choice for you.
Invisalign® technology works by using 3-D imaging software that generates a graph representation of your treatment plan. Throughout treatment, the Invisalign® dental laboratory will be directed to create a series of aligners that match each stage of planned tooth movement.
Removable aligners are cleaned easily and allow you to enjoy your favorite foods without irritating metal wires or brackets that make your mouth sore. You can also avoid the brushing and flossing challenges that are common with traditional, metal braces.
