All about Invisible Braces

Everyone want a great smile, but most of us need help getting there. More and more people are having success with an orthodontic devices called invisible braces.

Braces use brackets connected by wires to encourage the teeth to move. Braces are a series of tight-fitting custom-made retainers which slip over the teeth.

Can anyone get invisible teeth aligners?

As the invisible braces are custom-built for a tight fit, they are the best for adults or teens. Straightening a child’s teeth is more complicated. Young people, and their mouths, are still growing and developing, so the doctor must think about this when setting up treatment.

Clear orthodontic aligners are typically used if patients have minor spacing issues or moderately crowded teeth.

How does the invisible braces work?

Once a dentist or orthodontist decides how to correct your bite, they'll make a plan for moving the teeth. If you get the invisible braces, you’ll be fitted for several versions that make slight adjustments to move your teeth over the treatment time.

They’re made from a clear plastic or acrylic material and fit tightly over the teeth, but can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing.

Treatment time with invisible teeth aligners is based on how much the teeth need to be rotated or moved. The more your bite is crooked, the longer will be the treatment time and it usually takes between 10 and 24 months.
