Clear Tooth Aligners – a better looking alternative to braces!

The Answer Is Clear!

Are you a candidate for Clear Tooth Aligners?  Clear Aligners are sometimes called Invisalign.  These appliances are a way to achieve  an improvement in the alignment of teeth without the need for metal wires and brackets.  So, you can get your smile straight without train-track woes!

When we see things that are askew, there is often the uncontrollable urge to set it right … like a necktie that hangs to one side or a picture hanging crooked on the wall.  This desire for straightening is even more prominent when it comes to our teeth.  However, many forgo treatment to avoid the discomfort and hassle of traditional braces.  Clear tooth aligners let you move your teeth while you are wearing the appliances but allow the option to remove when you just don’t want to have them on!  Important to note that the clear aligners work best when they are worn a minimum of 20 hours per day.

Clear Aligners mads a big difference for Chloe! Although the alignment is not perfect, we were very happy with the result.

Adults account for nearly 25% of all orthodontic patients.  The most common problems are crowded teeth, teeth spaced too far apart, protruding upper or lower teeth, and upper and lower front teeth that do not touch.

Misalignment detracts from the an otherwise healthy smile!

Now there’s no reason to hide … since we offer ClearCorrect™ or Invisalign™ to correct the misalignment of front teeth. Using a series of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic aligners similar to a sports mouth guard or bleaching tray, we gradually and gently shift your teeth into the proper position.  Every few weeks, you will receive a new aligner that continues the gradual process of realigning your teeth.  These custom-made aligners are completely removable, so you can eat, drink, brush, and floss normally … then just pop the trays back into place for the rest of the day.

Chloe came in a few years ago unhappy with the appearance of her misaligned teeth.  Clear aligners satisfied her treatment goals without the hassle of brackets and metal wires!  Call our office today for a consultation to see if clear aligner treatment will work for you!
