Straight Teeth Without Braces?

How can you straighten teeth using no wires and no brackets with nearly invisible braces?

We can straighten teeth using a series of custom-made trays or aligners, custom made for you that will gently move your teeth into position. These aligners are made of smooth, comfortable, virtually invisible plastic that you wear over top of your teeth. You’ll pop a set of aligners in every two weeks until your treatment is complete. The nice thing about these aligners is that they don’t interfere with your daily routine. You clean your teeth the way you normally do.

You can eat the foods you normally want, because it doesn’t interfere. You can take these out for eating and cleaning your teeth. And the other great thing is you’ll be straightening your teeth and most people won’t even know you’re doing it. This is a great alternative for adult patients because of the cosmetics. You don’t see the treatment being done.

They’re virtually invisible. With children, I would probably venture to guess that they’re better off with the brackets that are bonded in the mouth, because there is a compliance issue with these aligners. They have to be worn a minimum of 20 hours a day, and it’s kind of difficult to get a child to be that disciplined about that. Most people can’t tell you’re wearing aligners at all. Matter of fact, I have a staff member who models them for me at the office, and most patients will say, “I don’t see them,” and she’ll get right up in their face and she say, “There they are!”

And then, she’ll take them out, and so they realize they really are virtually invisible.
