Orthodontic Clear Aligners
For more than a century, people have used orthodontics to correct “malocclusion,” which is the imperfect position of the teeth or jaws. Braces of years past have consisted of metal wires and brackets, which have commonly been deemed unsightly or uncomfortable. With advances in modern dentistry and orthodontics, dentists can now offer patients a straighter smile with more discretion and comfortability than ever before.
Antelope Creek Family Dentistry provides patients of all ages with straighter teeth using Invisalign and ClearCorrect. These invisible braces are ideal for teens or adults who desire a straighter smile without the hassle and appearance of traditional metal braces.
What Are Invisible Braces?
Invisible braces, also called clear aligners, are a series of custom-made mouthpieces or retainers that gently straighten teeth. Your dentist makes a mold of your teeth and uses 3-D imaging technology to map out your mouth and how your teeth need to move into the desired position.
Throughout your treatment, you wear the aligners in consecutive order, trading out new, tighter aligners every couple of weeks. Your treatment time and the number of aligners you must wear depends on your unique situation and smile goals. Antelope Creek Family Dentistry straightens patients' teeth using Invisalign and ClearCorrect, both of which have delivered tremendous and reliable results.
Founded in 1997, Invisalign has transformed millions of smiles over the past several years using their SmartTrack® system and Align Technology. Our Invisalign dentist can map your mouth and design these clear braces to straighten your teeth in a matter of months. The average Invisalign treatment is between six to 12 months, but this can vary. For the best and quickest results, it is recommended patients wear their Invisalign trays 20-22 hours each day.
ClearCorrect in Lincoln, NE
ClearCorrect is an advanced orthodontic system that was founded in 2006. Much like Invisalign, ClearCorrect aligns teeth into the desired position and corrects malocclusion. All aligner trays are custom-made to fit your unique bite and correct any crowded, crooked, or gapped teeth. ClearCorrect trays must be worn 20-22 hours per day for the fastest, most effective results.
Advantages of Invisible Braces
Patients and dentists alike prefer invisible braces to metal wires and brackets. Invisible braces have several benefits, including:
- They are durable, yet flexible.
- There are no dietary restrictions.
- They provide controlled single-tooth movement.
- They are discreet and fit snugly over your teeth, making them virtually invisible.
- They are made from smooth and comfortable BPA-free plastic. No metal!
- They can be removed for more convenient eating, brushing, and flossing.
Our Invisalign and ClearCorrect certified dentists take pride in helping our patients achieve the smiles they have always wanted. Antelope Creek Family Dentistry can help determine if ClearCorrect or Invisalign is right for you, depending on your current oral health and aesthetic goals.
