Clear Aligners & Express Aligners
For patients who do not want to wear traditional braces and prefer a more discreet option, clear orthodontic aligners and express aligners may be for you. Ask your Dr. and the staff at Orthodontics Inc about the several Aligner options available to you.
Invisalign or Express aligners are a great choice for our patients who are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment option. Rather than using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, the aligner system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten your smile. Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of the teeth. As you switch sets of aligners about every two weeks, your teeth will be gradually, gently guided to their proper positions. You will also visit our office on a regular basis during treatment to make certain that your smile is progressing as planned.
In general, aligners can be used to treat the same orthodontic issues that are normally treated with braces. Our orthodontist may recommend aligners to correct:
Gaps and spaced teeth
Certain problems with the bite, such as an overbite, open bite, under bite, or cross bite.
During your initial visit, we will determine whether you are a good candidate for aligners. This treatment is often a good choice for adult patients and others who are interested in a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. In addition to being discreet, aligners are also very comfortable because they are custom made from smooth, thin plastic. The aligners are removable as well, which allows you to easily remove them as needed in order to eat, brush, and floss.
If you need a faster solution, Express Aligners may be for you. Express aligners will help you get a beautiful photo ready smile. That proud graduation or your bid wedding day coming up? Ask our doctors how we can use Express Aligners to get you ready for the big moment faster than ever. In some cases we can get you there in as little as 3 months.
