Invisalign® Clear Aligner Therapy
Invisalign has quickly become a prominent method of treatment due to its inconspicuous appearance. With clear, removable aligners, Invisalign discreetly straightens your smile and still allows you to enjoy all of your favorite foods and beverages. During your initial consult, we will use smile-preview software to digitize your smile and map out your personalized treatment plan.
We’ll send this plan and any necessary impressions to our off-site lab, where your custom aligners will be created. Once we receive your aligners, we’ll bring you in for a fitting and see you back in our office approximately every six weeks for a checkup.
ClearCorrect™ Aligner Therapy
Similarly to Invisalign, ClearCorrect also uses clear, removable aligners to gradually reposition your teeth. This way, you can avoid the hassle of metal wires and brackets trapping food or altering your appearance. You’ll wear your aligners for approximately 22 hours per day, removing them only to eat and clean them. Follow-up visits will be regularly scheduled with our team until your teeth are in their desired positions.
Six Month Smiles®
If you’ve been putting off straightening your teeth because you don’t want to spend years in braces, we get it! However, thanks to advancements in dentistry, you can achieve a straighter, healthier smile by your next dental checkup. Both of the accelerated orthodontic methods we offer utilize a system of special brackets and wires that are placed only on the teeth that show when you smile. Six month braces work best on adults that have mild to moderate tooth misalignment and no issues with their bite. While minor alignment problems may not seem like a big deal, they can still cause issues with oral hygiene upkeep and wear and tear on teeth. Ready to improve your smile just in time for your next cleaning?
Comprehensive metal braces have been around for years, and there’s a reason for that! This orthodontic method is often the most cost-effective and treats a wide variety of alignment issues. Teenagers often prefer the traditional route as the metal brackets give them an opportunity to express themselves with colorful bands. If you’re an adult undergoing treatment, we promise to get you in and out of braces in no time, leaving you with a lifetime of picture-perfect smiles. We even offer tooth-colored, ceramic brackets for a more discreet straightening process!
