Clear Teeth Aligners Are the Modern Way to Straighten Teeth
Invisalign® revolutionized the orthodontics industry when it introduced clear teeth aligners in 1997. This teeth-straightening method is still considered relatively new when compared to traditional braces, which have been around for decades.
Invisalign® offers orthodontic patients a great alternative to clunky metal braces. Instead of metal brackets, bands, and wires, all patients have to do is slip comfortable, clear aligners over their teeth.
ClearCorrect® came along a few years later in 2006, adding yet another fantastic alternative to choose from. It works like Invisalign® – the aligners are comfortable and easy to use, and they are so transparent that they are barely noticeable by others. Your orthodontic treatment doesn’t have to be on display for the whole world to see.
Plus, with either system, the aligners are easy to remove for eating, drinking, brushing, or special occasions. Just be sure to wear them at all times otherwise. ClearCorrect® recommends at least 22 hours per day, while Invisalign® tells users to wear them at minimum 20-22 hours.
When you come in for your initial consultation, we’ll help you decide which orthodontic option is right for you. Both methods are fast, and you could complete your treatment in as few as 12 months, not two years or longer like traditional braces usually take.
