Meet our orthodontist Dr. Friedman to see if Invisalign® or 3M Clarity Aligners are right for you.
Invisalign® and 3M Clarity Aligners invisible aligners are designed to treat a number of common orthodontic issues, including:
- Crowded teeth
- Gaps between teeth (due to tooth loss or irregular tooth development)
- Misaligned jaws (overbite or underbite)
- Crooked teeth
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:
