Invisalign® and 3M Clarity Aligners invisible aligners are designed to treat a number of common orthodontic issues, including:
Gaps between teeth (due to tooth loss or irregular tooth development)
Misaligned jaws (overbite or underbite)
The Invisalign® and 3M Clarity Aligner treatment system works to straighten your teeth through a series of removable invisible plastic aligner trays. Your aligner trays are based on 3D models of your teeth which our orthodontist will use to guide your teeth into the desired alignment over approximately one to two years. The aligners are virtually invisible once placed in your mouth. They are also removable and can be taken out during meals and to brush and floss. This makes them a more comfortable and discreet alternative to the brackets and wires of traditional braces.
For the most effective results, you should wear aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day. You will wear each aligner set for one to two weeks, as recommended by our orthodontist. To care for your aligners, simply rinse them each night and brush them gently with a soft-bristle brush.
Invisalign and 3M Clarity Aligners offer many benefits over traditional braces, including:
Eat your favorite foods: You can eat all your favorite foods without worrying about breaking traditional braces. Just remove your aligners during meals and enjoy.
Improved oral health: You can still brush and floss your teeth normally without brackets and wires getting in the way.
Fewer visits to the orthodontist: You will only need to see our doctor for a checkup every six to eight weeks to pick up your next batch of aligners.
Lifestyle: Remove your aligners during recreational sports and other physical activities to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.
Improved confidence: People won’t even notice your transparent aligners. You can also take them out during social events, making them excellent for patients who experience anxiety about their orthodontic care.
Peace of mind: Teenage patients will receive aligners with special blue compliance indicators to assure they are wearing them enough.
