Clear braces could be the answer if conventional wires and brackets aren’t for you. The Glen Dental Center are preferred Invisalign® providers and give you the smile you deserve.
Invisalign® Clear Aligners
If you follow the Glen Dental Blog, you will remember that clear aligners from Invisalign® are the comfortable way to a straight smile as Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners, between 11 and 31, and is removed when you eat, brush and floss.
Made from patented human grade plastic, clear braces from Invisalign® work because they gently push your teeth into position. People who wear conventional wires and brackets will tell you that adjustments are uncomfortable and can be downright painful.
Invisalign® really is the smart way to a straight smile and is much more comfortable than old school wires and brackets.
Clear Braces Instead of Wires and Brackets
Conventional wires and brackets require intense pushing and pulling and are quite uncomfortable during adjustments, which may be needed every two weeks. With Invisalign®, you only need to see Dr. Jeffrey Gilmor every 6 weeks to make sure your invisible braces treatment is on track.
Another invisible braces advantage is time. While conventional braces can take up to two years, some patients see results in as little as six months with the average being 12 to 18 months.
While braces have certainly changed over the years they are no invisible. If you wear Invisalign®, the only other person that will know will be Dr. Verena Phillips.
Can Everyone Wear Clear Braces?
If your teeth are slightly rotated or tipped, or if you have a small space between your teeth, clear braces are a good choice. However, if you have a severe under or overbite conventional braces may be a better fit.
