Invisalign is a revolutionary treatment that has redefined orthodontics by providing a virtually invisible appliance as effective as traditional metal braces. This corrective treatment involves a series of clear aligners molded to fit your mouth perfectly as they gradually shift your teeth into place for your dream smile.
We begin this treatment by taking a scan of your mouth with our iTero scanner and creating a 3D model of your smile. We use this model to plan out your treatment and show you the projected results of Invisalign treatment. Once you and one of our doctors decide on the course of your treatment, we’ll have the Invisalign aligners printed based on the model of your teeth. Every two weeks, you’ll receive a new set of aligners that have been slightly changed to shift your teeth further. Invisalign is printed using a thermoplastic material that industry-leading scientists designed to be so comfortable patients’ can’t tell they’re wearing their appliance.
Spark Clear Aligners
We are excited to offer our patients multiple clear aligner options for them to choose from, and Spark clear aligners are another amazing option for patients who want a discreet corrective treatment. Spark clear aligners work similarly to Invisalign in the way that they use a series of aligner sets to gradually shift your teeth into the best position for aesthetics and function.
What makes Spark aligners stand out from the rest of the leading aligner brands is their commitment to clarity, comfort, and efficiency. Spark aligners are famous for being the clearest aligners available, so our patients benefit from a nearly invisible corrective treatment. While some clear aligners may yellow with time, Spark aligners maintain their clarity to keep patients smiling through treatment. Additionally, this appliance is made using TruGEN™, an innovative technology designed by experts to be more comfortable and polished.
How Do Clear Aligners Work?
Clear aligners are a relatively new orthodontic treatment that has soared in popularity among patients because of their efficiency and aesthetics. However, you may be wondering how this appliance that looks and functions nothing like braces creates beautiful results that last a lifetime.
Rather than being permanently affixed to your teeth, clear aligner treatment involves a series of aligners that are removable and replaced every two weeks. Each set of aligners is perfectly molded to fit snugly over your teeth. With each new set, your teeth are gradually shifted until you reach your dream smile. Clear aligners are virtually invisible and incredibly durable, so you don’t have to worry about orthodontic emergencies due to broken brackets or poking wires.
What Kinds of Problems Can Clear Aligners Correct?
Clear aligners are engineered by highly-skilled engineers and scientists to tackle orthodontic issues big and small. Invisalign and Spark clear aligners are both designed to allow doctors to tightly control tooth movement so we can engineer a treatment plan that solves your unique needs. This corrective treatment can help treat overcrowding, crooked teeth, misaligned jaws, and more. No matter where you start in your oral health journey, clear aligners can help get you to your goal.
What Advantages Do Clear Aligners Offer over Traditional Braces?
The main advantage that clear aligners have over traditional braces is freedom. One of the freedoms this treatment allows you is to enjoy the look of your natural smile while working toward your dream smile. These aligners are virtually invisible, so the people around you won’t notice your appliance, and you’ll forget you’re wearing anything.
Additionally, clear aligner treatment gives you the freedom to eat all of your favorite foods without worrying about damaging your appliance. Unlike braces, you don’t have to cut hard, sticky, or chewy foods out of your diet to prevent broken brackets and loose wires. Every time you’re ready to eat, all you have to do is remove your aligners and enjoy your favorite meals.
While you can remove your aligners whenever it’s convenient, you may forget you’re even wearing them because of their extreme comfort. Both Spark aligners and Invisalign use ultra-comfortable material that experts designed with patients in mind.
