Invisalign® treatment is a great way to improve the look of your smile without going through the ordeal of braces. Traditional orthodontics can be a hassle for patients and require many different appointments with an orthodontist. The metal wires and braces can cause discomfort, irritate the gums and inside of the cheeks, and make patients self-conscious about smiling. However, Invisalign aligners allow our dentists to give patients a more comfortable, discreet orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign treatment uses a series of plastic appliances to gradually straighten and align teeth. Each appliance is made of a clear plastic and is nearly invisible while being worn. These aligners are custom-made for each patient, for both a comfortable fit and to properly shift their teeth over time. The plastic appliances come in a series and are replaced about every two weeks. Our dentists will monitor the movement of your teeth to make sure they are moving correctly. While Clear Dental recommends wearing Invisalign aligners for at least 22 hours a day, they are removable. Please take out the aligners when eating or when brushing and flossing your teeth. Please also take the time to keep your aligners clean and take out and brush the aligner each night. If you have questions about planning or taking care of your Invisalign aligners in Anchorage, Alaska, call Clear Dental at (907) 33-SMILE(76453).
