Invisalign clear aligners prove that effective orthodontic treatment doesn’t have to be difficult. These ingenious appliances have helped millions straighten their teeth and achieve better-looking smiles, and they can help you too.
Invisalign Aligners and ClearCorrect
Invisalign and ClearCorrect aligners are an effective and discreet orthodontic treatment option that is worn comfortably over your teeth to continuously adjust alignment and spacing.
Invisalign aligners and ClearCorrect aligners are custom-made using models of both your current teeth and the end result you hope to achieve. With Invisalign aligners, you will switch to new aligners about every two weeks with each set-shifting the teeth slightly—this continues until you have achieved your final results, which usually takes about two years.
You remove the aligners for eating, drinking, and cleaning only. At first, they will feel very tight, but they will begin to loosen and feel more comfortable after a few days.
How Does the Invisalign and ClearCorrect Processes Work?
To begin, we will take photographs of your teeth and face, dental impressions of your teeth and x-rays. Those records are sent to Invisalign with detailed instructions on how we want the final result to appear. Invisalign or ClearCorrect will scan the impressions to create a 3D model of the teeth and work with your dentist to get the mold to its exact proportions. Once final, the trays are made and mailed to your dentist office. You will wear a set of trays for two weeks at a time for approximately 2 years, or the length of time determined by your dentist.
Who can use Invisalign and ClearCorrect?
Most teens and adult patients requiring mild to moderate orthodontic corrections can use Invisalign or ClearCorrect. This includes patients with teeth that are crooked and misaligned or teeth that feature noticeable spacing problems. Invisalign can even help patients with minor bit issues—however, not all orthodontic issues can be treated with Invisalign. More extensive problems will require additional treatment.
What are the advantages of Invisalign and ClearCorrect?
Most people are excellent candidates for Invisalign and ClearCorrect clear aligners. However, clear aligners may not be a suitable choice for extensive orthodontic cases involving significant movement. Some may also choose fixed braces because there are no trays to lose.
Invisalign and ClearCorrect are a great option for:
- Invisibly straightening your teeth
- Allow you to eat foods that are “off-limits” with traditional braces
- Making cleaning and brushing your teeth easy
