Clear aligners, also called invisible braces, are a treatment regime of transparent trays that straighten your teeth over time. The system eliminates brackets and wires, which are uncomfortable and unsightly. In addition, your clear aligners are so discreet that most people won’t realize that you’re wearing them.
Invisible braces also have numerous advantages over more traditional metal braces. Comfort and convenience are two primary advantages. For instance, you can take your aligners out so that you can eat without the encumbrance of an appliance in your mouth. This feature also prevents food from getting stuck in the tray and makes it easier to brush and floss.
Another reason Dr. Cara McCallum recommends clear aligners is because they unobtrusively blend with your natural teeth. Invisible braces live up to their name in a literal sense. This is why they are popular with teens and older adults who don’t want their mouths filled with metal.
Comfort, removability, and discretion are why clear aligners are the preferred method for correcting your smile’s alignment.
The treatment process begins with an oral assessment where Dr. McCallum will examine your teeth to ensure the treatment matches your needs. Then, we will use a high-tech intraoral camera to scan your mouth and teeth in detail. This information allows us to determine your treatment’s time and the approximate cost.
