Invisible braces, or clear aligners, are a great option for patients who want straight teeth without the time and hassle of metal braces. Clear aligners – such as Invisalign and ClearCorrect – are a system of removable trays that quickly straighten teeth in just a few months.
If you are interested in invisible braces, you’ll begin with a consultation with the dentist to identify your goals and take impressions of your teeth. This will reveal if you are a candidate for invisible braces. If you are, the dentist will work with an invisible braces manufacturer to provide a system of clear aligners that are designed specifically for your mouth. Depending on the amount of movement needed to straighten your teeth, you will wear the trays 22 hours a day for a specified length of time – usually between three and twelve months.
The aligners are easy to remove for eating and other activities, and most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them. When your treatment is complete, you receive clear retainers to wear at night or throughout the week to keep your teeth straight.
