“Invisible” Clear Aligners
Clear Correct and Invisalign
Short-term orthodontics help you have a brand new smile in less time. Unlike traditional braces that can take years to fix alignment, short-term orthodontics in Waterford can give you a better smile in half a year.
Your Waterford dentists and orthodontists are certified in the Invisalign technique. Invisalign is a nearly invisible tooth alignment system that uses a series of plastic, computer-designed aligners that look similar to mouthguards. Each aligner in the series moves your teeth closer to the desired position. The average total treatment time is 12-18 months, and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30. Treatment time and number of clear braces for the treatment vary on a case to case to basis.
If you’ve always wanted to straighten your teeth but hate wearing metal braces, you may want to consider Invisalign.
Clear Correct is a series of clear braces very similar to Invisalign. These braces are removable and they don’t use wires that can trap food particles and are difficult to clean. Your doctor will evaluate the progress of your treatment and give you new aligners every 4–6 weeks. You’ll wear the aligners for at least 22 hours per day.
To find out if you’re a good candidate for Short-Term Orthodontics such as Clear Correct or Invisalign schedule a consultation with your dentist in Waterford.
