Welcome back to the blog!

Here at Clearwater Dental Associates, we take our mission, to keep your mouth healthy and your smile looking great, seriously. As such, we are always looking for ways to provide more convenient treatments to meet your ever-changing needs as a patient.

Today we want to talk about fixing certain problems related to the health and appearance of your pearly whites. Perhaps you have already been wondering what to do about the bothersome aspects of your smile. Maybe you have even given up hope.

If you are embarrassed by the shape or spacing of your teeth, then you are not alone, and we have a great solution for you: adult orthodontics.

Don’t worry, we have alternatives to those clunky metal contraptions that you remember from middle school. The one that speaks most to our busy adult patients is known as Invisalign.

Invisalign Is Not Like Other Braces

If your teeth are crooked crowded, or gapped, Invisalign can provide a more subtle, less time consuming method of treatment than traditional braces, though the end result will be just as great.

How can that be?

Unlike the old-school methods, Invisalign works to straighten things out by employing a series of clear, plastic aligners (that are based on molds of your mouth) to facilitate the movements of your teeth.

These aligners are nearly invisible which means your treatment will be conducted without fanfare and certainly won’t attract any unwanted attention from your peers.

That’s right, no one will have to know!

We’ve actually been told that our Invisalign aligners are more like wearing a mouthguard than braces, which is nice.

To get the ball rolling, we will invite you in so that we can map out your treatment schedule and design your aligner trays. Once they are ready, you’ll be turned loose.

Every two weeks or so you can switch the aligners out yourself to keep things moving along. That certainly beats having to come in to the office for adjustments!

Much like orthodontic wires, each Invisalign tray is specifically designed to move certain teeth, at very specific times. But the difference is that the aligners fit snugly for a more comfortable experience, one that won’t cause any mouth sores or bleeding.

Beyond that, they are even removable, which means you get a break from the gear at some point each day. This makes meals more delightful because there will be no dietary changes required. And cleaning is a snap (you simply rinse them under warm water). No special tools to pack around!

Your treatment won’t take 2-3 years, either, but rather something more like 12 months!

Doesn’t that sound great? We thought so!
