Clear Aligners

Clear Invisalign aligners are an effective alternative to traditional metal braces, and involve a system of clear, removable trays used to straighten teeth. Each aligner is custom-made to fit over your teeth and is designed to gradually move teeth into their proper position. Using clear aligners for orthodontic treatment is not for everyone. The best way to find out if clear aligners are the right option for you is to schedule a free consultation with Dr. Frantz or Dr. Dorilag.

How do clear Invisalign aligners work?

Clear Invisalign aligners are used as an alternative to traditional metal braces and brackets, and are designed to help guide teeth into the proper position. Just like braces, clear Invisalign aligners use gradual force to control tooth movement, but without any metal wires or brackets. The aligners are made with a strong plastic material that has been fabricated to fit your mouth. As treatment progresses you switch aligners every two weeks. Each aligner is a little different, so your teeth move a little more with every change.

Aligners are worn for at least 23 hours each day, and you'll receive at least three new aligners every month and half appointment. The length of your treatment depends on the severity of your case, and treatment can take anywhere from six months to over a year.

Advantages of orthodontic treatment with clear Invisalign aligners:

Clear aligners are a great alternative for patients who want a straighter smile but do not want to wear metal braces, or for patients who have had treatment in the past and want to make minor corrections to their smile. There are several advantages to orthodontic treatment with clear aligners:

  • Clear aligners are easier to keep clean, making it easier to maintain the health of your teeth and gums.
  • Clear aligners are comfortable and less likely to irritate your gums and cheeks.
  • Clear aligners prevent wear on the teeth from tooth grinding.
  • Clear aligners are removable, so it's easier for you to brush and floss after meals.

If you're interested in orthodontic treatment with clear Invisalign aligners, schedule an appointment and talk to Dr. Dorilag or Dr. Frantz about whether this is the right treatment option for you. Scheduling a free complimentary consultation is your first step toward achieving the beautiful smile you've always wanted.
