Advanced clear braces today are just as effective as metal braces. Combined with white wires and clear elastic ties, they are much less visible than metal brackets and are an excellent option for patients that want their braces to be less noticeable. They are also highly stain-resistant and do not discolor like the clear braces of the past. With our selection of clear braces, we can meet each patient’s specific treatment needs. 

Thanks to Invisalign®, many of our patients that have always wanted to straighten their teeth but have never considered using traditional braces can do so happily and comfortably. 

Invisalign® is the clear way to gradually straighten teeth without braces using a series of clear aligners made of lightweight plastic that fit your teeth with ease and comfort. Aligners are detachable; however, they must be worn for 20 to 22 hours daily, excluding when you eat, clean your teeth, floss, or go to special events. A new set of aligners is replaced every two weeks, and an office visit usually takes place every eight weeks. 

Invisalign® is an outstanding alternative to traditional braces for treating patients with orthodontic issues like crowded and widely spaced teeth. Just like any removable orthodontic appliance, the trays must be worn at all times, as prescribed, for the teeth to move. Treatment usually lasts for no more than a year. 

Other Advantages

In addition  to near invisibility, the advantages of Invisalign® include: 

  • The Ability to Be “Braceless” for Significant Occasions (Must Be Worn for at Least 20 Hours per Day) 
  • The Ability to Remove Aligners to Brush and Floss so Oral Hygiene Can Be Maintained 
  • No Restrictions on Eating and Drinking 
  • Fewer Office Visits, Shorter Appointments, and Typically No “Emergency” Visits Compared to Traditional Braces 
  • No Significant Difference in Cost Compared to Traditional Braces
