Invisalign is a much more aesthetically pleasing and comfortable alternative to the dark-colored wires and brackets used during a traditional orthodontic treatment. A series of clear aligners will be created using an impression of your mouth as the basis. The aligners will blend in with the rest of your mouth, becoming virtually invisible to the casual observer if they don’t know what to look for. You will wear each aligner for about two weeks, and during that time they will move your teeth closer to the appropriate position.
In addition to being discreet, Invisalign aligners are also removable. That means there aren’t any diet restrictions to worry about; you can just take the aligners out before eating or drinking anything besides water. Oral hygiene is also much easier, since you can just brush and floss normally without brackets and wires getting in the way. Finally, you can expect Invisalign treatment to be much faster compared to a traditional orthodontic treatment. While braces are sometimes needed for 2 to 3 years, Invisalign treatment is normally finished within 6 to 18 months!
Like Invisalign, ClearCorrect is an image-friendly way for older patients to correct the alignment of their smiles without metal braces. ClearCorrect is similar to Invisalign in that it uses a series of clear aligners that cause the teeth to shift towards their ideal position over time; not only are they see-through, but they can also be taken out for meals and cleanings. One key feature of ClearCorrect treatment is that there are three different options you can choose from depending on the needs of your smile:
Before deciding on any kind of orthodontic treatment, it’s important for your dentist in Richardson to perform an examination of your teeth and determine whether clear aligners would be effective in your case. Once Dr. Azmoodeh and Dr. De Vincenzo have had a look at your smile, they can help you decide whether Invisalign or ClearCorrect is a good option in your case.
