The clear, comfortable alternatives to braces
Removable clear aligners (a.k.a. clear braces or invisible braces) are used to straighten your teeth without using braces.
With straighter teeth, you’ll not only have a more pleasing smile, but also:
- HEALTHY GUMS – Properly aligned teeth help the gums to fit more snugly around them, which encourages greater periodontal health.
- EASIER CLEANING – Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean than crooked, crowded teeth. Whencleaned properly, there is less chance of developing gum disease.
- DECREASED RISK OF ABNORMAL JAWBONE WEAR – Well aligned teeth have a healthier bite and may be less stressful on your supporting bone joints
The clear aligner process for teeth straightening involves using a series of custom-made clear aligners, such as Invisalign or ClearCorrect, to move your teeth a tiny bit at a time, slowly bringing them into correct alignment.
Completely clear and almost undetectable, most people won’t even notice that you’re wearing clear aligners.
Unlike braces, you can remove your aligners whenever you like, so eating is far more enjoyable – and cleaning simpler.
