Would you love to straighten your teeth, but are not interested in starting an orthodontic journey of wearing traditional metal braces? We have adult and teen patients that would love to improve their smile but are not interested in traditional treatment. We have an option that allows patients to straighten their teeth without the bulky appearance of metal braces and brackets. This treatment is popular among many of our patients for the numerous benefits it offers — clear aligners.

What are Clear Aligners?

Thanks to advancements in dental technology, there are now a number of ways to straighten teeth aside from the traditional metal braces you may remember from your youth. In recent years, Invisalign® has become a popular orthodontic option. Invisalign® uses clear aligner trays to slowly transition the teeth into the desired placement. Since Invisalign® is essentially invisible, adults and teens love that they can straighten their teeth without a drastic change to their overall appearance. Invisalign® is beneficial in treating misalignment and cosmetic concerns such as:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Gap teeth
  • Teeth with bite issues
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite

Benefit of Clear Aligners

There are a number of benefits of using clear aligners for orthodontic treatment. The biggest benefit is the trays are removable. Patients love being able to enjoy their favorite foods. Patients also like being able to brush and floss their teeth as normal without having to clean around brackets and wires. Before starting treatment, patients will be able to view the transition of their teeth during the various trays. This gives patients an idea of how long treatment will last. Patients are given a number of trays at one time that are transitioned out following our instructions. This limits the number of office visits which is a benefit to our busy patients.
