Invisible braces offer many of the same benefits of metal braces: slowly adjust tooth movements to straighten and fix any bite issues – but these plastic versions are nearly undetectable and virtually undetectable!
As the braces are removable, you can take them off while eating, brushing or flossing your teeth; however, for maximum effectiveness they should be worn for 22 hours every day.
Floss Dental Clinic offers Invisalign®
Floss Dental Clinic offers Invisalign as an economical, nearly invisible alternative to metal braces. Invisalign works by employing clear removable trays which gently shift teeth into their ideal positions; less expensive than metal braces yet more comfortable to wear and producing results more quickly with fewer appointments needed at the dentist.
Invisalign clear aligners are composed of smooth plastic that doesn’t harm your teeth, making them far less noticeable at social gatherings than other orthodontic devices. Furthermore, they’re easier to clean – simply remove before eating or brushing teeth to eliminate food debris or bacteria buildup – making these aligners ideal for wearing at social events and social gatherings.
Invisalign celebrates individuality by tailoring its treatment plan specifically to your unique dental problems. Your dentist will take impressions, photos, and X-rays of your teeth so that the aligners can be tailored specifically to meet those issues. Furthermore, Invisalign allows for faster results than metal braces: most adults finish treatment within 12 months. However, length of Invisalign treatments is dependent upon compliance with treatment regimen.
Invisalign® Clear Braces
Teens and adults with crooked teeth can get the smile of their dreams with Invisalign Clear Braces without the hassle of wearing metal braces. The clear aligners are virtually indestructible and easily removable so that eating, drinking, brushing your teeth and flossing remain normal while still having an incredible smile!
Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners that gradually move your teeth into their proper places. You’ll switch out every few weeks as your teeth move into place – most people reach their smile goals within 12-18 months with Invisalign; some even experience significant improvements sooner!
Traditional braces rely on anchors and an arch wire to align your teeth; Invisalign uses an innovative SmartTrack system which adjusts your aligners automatically so you can get optimal results as soon as possible. Plus, with its proprietary material used, Invisalign is more comfortable than its counterparts!
Invisalign can treat numerous issues related to misalignments of teeth, overcrowding and gaps between them. Adults typically find Invisalign easier to use than teenagers or children as adult teeth are fully formed and more resistant to movement by braces.
Invisalign® Lingual Braces
Lingual braces are designed to blend in seamlessly with the back side of your teeth, so they won’t be noticeable to others when worn. This makes lingual braces an excellent way for adults who want to improve their smile discreetly without anyone knowing they’re receiving treatment. These unique braces are invisible from the front of your mouth making them an incredibly discreet solution.
Like traditional metal and ceramic braces, lingual braces use a system of brackets and wires to apply pressure on your teeth and help guide them into proper alignment. Once applied, we tighten these wires at regular intervals to further control tooth movement and help achieve your desired result.
Dr. Miller will use digital information from an impression or scan of your teeth to send to a laboratory, which will create customized lingual brackets to fit perfectly in your mouth and arch wires that will be robotically bent for maximum efficacy of lingual braces.
As opposed to Clear aligners, which you remove to eat and drink, lingual braces must remain in your mouth at all times, necessitating some changes to your eating habits to avoid hard, chewy or crusty foods that could damage their brackets. Furthermore, brushing and flossing more regularly than normal is recommended in order to maintain healthy gums and tongue tissue.
Invisalign® Clear Aligners
Invisalign(r) clear aligners offer a discreet and comfortable solution for straightening your smile. Following an examination, we’ll create a tailored treatment plan using x-rays, pictures and 3D models of your teeth – this will determine exactly how much movement is necessary and when it will happen to ensure perfect alignment of all the teeth in their proper positions.
Next, we will create custom clear acrylic trays to fit over your teeth and apply gentle pressure, slowly shifting them until they’re in their proper positions. You can easily remove the trays so you can continue eating, drinking, brushing and flossing normally without disruption; we will schedule regular check-ups every few weeks to make sure things are going as expected.
Clear aligners are nearly invisibly worn so they won’t attract attention at work or school, while remaining comfortable compared to traditional braces which may irritate gums over time. Plus, they help stop teeth grinding (bruxism) which may result in headaches and jaw pain later on.
Invisalign offers adults and adolescents a more discrete orthodontic solution than traditional braces. It excels at correcting malocclusions such as crowded or crooked teeth, an overbite, open bite, crossbite or underbite; narrow arches; spaces between teeth as well as issues impacting eating or chewing such as gummy smiles or improperly grown adult teeth.
