Clear Braces in Canton, GA
Looking for an alternative to metal braces? Clear braces are the clear and simple choice. No wires. No brackets. Just clear, convenient comfort-every reason to smile.
With clear braces we can straighten your teeth using a series of clear, custom, removable aligners. Each aligner moves your teeth just a little bit at a time until you eventually have straight teeth.
We will evaluate your teeth and talk about any problems or goals you have for your smile. Once we establish clear braces as the right treatment option for you, we will take impressions, photos, and x-rays of your teeth that we will use in manufacturing your custom aligners.
Your Custom Treatment Plan
With clear braces, we map out a complete treatment plan of gradual adjustment that takes your teeth from where they are currently to where we want them to be. Once completed, we will be able to preview the projected results of your treatment in your "treatment set-up", a computer representation of your teeth before and after treatment.
Progress Wearing Your Aligners
You'll wear your aligners all the time, except while eating and drinking or during daily tooth care such as brushing and flossing. Your aligners are so clear they are barely noticeable so they won't have an impact on your day to day life. Aligner by aligner, you'll be able to see the difference as your teeth slowly adjust and align to your target smile. You'll visit us periodically for checkups to see how you're progressing until you eventually have the straight smile you've always wanted.
The Choice Is Clear!
With the results and convenience clear braces offer and the advantages it has over other treatment options, it's an easy decision. With clear braces you can get the obvious benefits and confidence you'll enjoy with straight teeth so you too can show off your smile.
While it’s rare to have naturally straight teeth it is still possible to have the perfect smile with orthodontics; however, as we get older the idea of wearing bulky braces that have metal wires and brackets can be less than appealing. Luckily there are better options for adults and those looking to straighten their smiles more discreetly. Clear braces like Invisalign can fix mild to more complex dental cases, promising a better-looking smile.
About Clear Braces
Clear braces consist of a series of clear, plastic aligners that are custom-designed to fit your upper and lower teeth. They are able to fix a variety of dental issues including gaps between teeth, overcrowding, crooked teeth, and mild to severe malocclusions.
Once we deem you an ideal candidate for treatment we will take impressions of your smile that a laboratory will then use to create your unique set of aligners. Each aligner is designed to shift certain teeth according to the detailed treatment plan we created for you and your smile. Once the aligners have been created we will fit you with the first set in the series.
Wearing Clear Braces
We advise all patients with clear braces to wear them for about 20 to 22 hours each day. Each aligner will be worn for two weeks, after which you will replace them with the next set in your treatment series. Over time these aligners will gradually shift your teeth into the proper position. During this time you will also see us every four to six weeks for routine visits to make sure that your treatment is progressing as it should.
Benefits of Clear Braces
What makes clear braces an ideal option for many of our patients is that it offers a way to straighten smiles without the typical “metal mouth” that turns people away from getting braces later in life. Furthermore, because you can remove your aligners you don’t have to worry about dietary restrictions, as you would if you opt for traditional braces. Just remove your trays before eating or drinking and then be sure to brush and rinse out your aligners before putting them back in. It’s that simple!
Also, you don’t have to worry about brushing and flossing around delicate wiring either, as you can easily remove your clear braces prior to your oral care regime. clear braces easily fit into any lifestyle.
The length of your treatment will depend on the complexity of your case. The average treatment length for adults is about one year; however, teenagers who opt for clear braces may need to wear their aligners for more than a year.
