By far one of our most popular treatment options, Invisalign allows you to straighten your teeth in the most discreet way possible. It utilizes a clear plastic appliance, as oppose to the white porcelain of clear braces, that is virtually invisible. It makes Invisalign the ideal choice for adults who want to achieve a healthy and beautiful smile, without worrying about their appearance.
Clear braces are just another type of ceramic braces. In this case, the type of bracket that’s used has a high level of translucency (it’s very clear), as opposed to a more whitish, tooth-colored shade. In all other ways, these two types of appliances are the same thing. Opting for clear ceramic braces tends to create a more pleasing, less conspicuous look for the patient’s appliances, especially from a distance.
Essix retainers gently guide your teeth into a position where the upper and lower sets are even, straight and align with each other. Though your teeth may feel firmly set in your mouth, they move when under constant pressure, and can assume new positions in the mouth all on their own. Essix retainers maintain the intended position following orthodontic treatment, all while providing minor corrections to slightly misaligned teeth if needed.
