Having straight teeth is important not only for children but for adults as well. Straightening your teeth with a clear aligner system (like Invisalign) can treat common orthodontic problems thereby helping you maintain your dental health.
Clear aligner treatment is a technique that straightens your teeth without braces, using a series of clear, removable aligners that are custom modeled to fit your teeth. The aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements Dr. Heather Burch plans out for you.
The Benefits of Clear Aligner Treatment
1. Clear Aligners are Removable - This means you can take your aligner trays out when you eat and brush your teeth. Being able to take your trays out means you can eat without the normal restrictions of traditional braces.
2. Clear Aligners are Almost Invisible - The aligners look pretty much invisible when they are in your mouth. People may notice that you have something on your teeth because the trays do make your teeth slightly shiny, but it's not nearly as noticeable as traditional silver braces.
3. Clear Aligners Can Help Whiten Your Teeth - Anything you eat can stick to your aligners and keep things on your teeth. Similarly, if you brush with whitening toothpaste, that whitening toothpaste will stick to your aligners and to your teeth…helping to whiten your teeth throughout treatment.
