Invisible braces are one such treatment.
What are Invisible Braces?
Invisible braces are braces that still correct the alignment of teeth, but are made of transparent ‘aligners’ that are not easily visible. They are considered a more desirable alternative to traditional metal braces, as they are difficult to see and can give the appearance that the wearer does not wear braces at all. The invisible braces we use come in the form of clear plastic trays that are molded to the shape of the teeth, much like whitening trays.
How are Invisible Braces Applied?
First, a treatment plan is created for the patient. Aligner trays, each more “corrected” than the last, are then created according to the plan. Then, if needed, attachments are added to the front of the teeth to hold the aligners in place. Finally, the aligners are applied for a set amount of time each day. Depending on the severity of the misalignment or crowding, the patient may only have to sleep in the aligners. Otherwise, the aligners are worn constantly then removed at night. Progress is checked periodically, and the patient is gradually moved to aligners with greater tightness until the desired alignment is achieved.
