Clear Aligners

A Straighter Smile without Braces

Subtlety may not be what you think of when you consider orthodontic treatment, especially if you’ve worn braces before. Therefore, when older teens and adults need to straighten crooked teeth, they may hesitate to undergo treatment because they’d prefer to avoid having to wear braces again. Fortunately, we offer two systems of custom-designed clear aligners that can correct several different kinds of malocclusion (tooth misalignment), allowing many patients to enjoy straighter, healthier teeth without the need for traditional braces.

The science behind clear aligners

The difference between clear aligners and traditional braces is that aligners don’t rely on brackets and wires to realign crooked teeth. Instead, the series of aligners are designed to gradually shift teeth in phases, with each aligner completing a phase and the next one picking up where it left off. Using highly precise 3D scanning and measurements, we can accurately diagnose the exact nature and severity of your malocclusion. Then, we can custom-design your aligners to guide your crooked teeth through their appropriate paths of movement to correct their positioning.

The benefits of Invisalign® and ClearCorrect®

Invisalign® and ClearCorrect® aligners are made from nearly invisible, BPA-free acrylic. By utilizing specially designed clear aligners instead of brackets and wires, Invisalign® and ClearCorrect® offer several different benefits for patients who need to straighten their teeth. Those benefits include:

  • More discreet treatment (the aligners are virtually undetectable)
  • Enhanced comfort (due to no protruding parts)
  • Greater convenience (the aligners are temporarily removable)
  • Improved oral health (your risks of cavities and gingivitis are reduced)
  • And more
