Invisalign is a popular treatment for both teens and adults that involves wearing a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually move your teeth without wires and brackets. Invisalign is a comfortable, affordable and effective way to straighten teeth. Patients do not have to avoid any foods while in treatment because the aligners are removed before eating. Also, it is much easier to keep the teeth clean so the stains around brackets that are a result of poor oral hygiene can be avoided. However, the success of the treatment depends on the patient’s cooperation and using the aligners for at least 22 hours a day. Without compliance, the program will not work as well.
We use a passive self-ligating bracket system that is not only much more aesthetically pleasing than regular braces, but also eliminates the need for elastic or metal ties. Experience the same benefits of treatment with traditional braces without the discomfort that is associated with the pressure of the ties. Clear brackets are smaller than traditional brackets and are designed to be discrete, aesthetic, comfortable, and easy to clean.
Recent improvements in traditional braces have resulted in smaller, stronger, more efficient and less conspicuous braces. Metal brackets are the most commonly used appliances, and offer very effective treatment results.
We offer many different colored ties to choose from, and they can be replaced at every visit. Have fun changing the colors based on what is going on in your life, your favorite sports team or an upcoming holiday.
