We use the premier digital intraoral scanner instead of the “goopy” molds of yesteryear that used to make you gag! The scanner uses a slender wand that simply takes a 3D photo of the teeth in less than 5 minutes! Our patients love this new, more comfortable technology. The scan can then be sent to a laboratory to make appliances, retainers or clear aligners to begin treatment. Come try this amazing innovation yourself!
Invisalign/ Clear Aligners
What are Clear Aligners?
Clear aligners are transparent, removable trays designed to deliver progressive tooth alignment as each new tray is worn. “Invisalign” is just one brand name from among 20 manufacturers of clear aligners. The generic term aligners describes these appliances just as “facial tissues” are comparable to “Kleenex.”
• Clear Aligners are one cosmetic way to straighten your teeth without braces
• Clear Aligners uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets
• Clear Aligners can be removed to eat and brush your teeth, which allows for easy cleaning
• Clear Aligners has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthodontic practices nationwide.
• Because clear aligners can be removed, patient cooperation is of utmost importance! If the aligners are not worn, the teeth will not straighten.”
“Ceramic, or “clear” braces are a great, more discreet alternative to more traditional braces. They work in the same way to align your teeth, but are a more incognito option. These are a great choice for adolescents and adults alike.”
