Clear Braces Invisalign® in Lincoln, NE: How It Works

Invisalign® uses clear teeth aligners to move teeth progressively into the correct alignment. The aligners are almost invisible because they are made from clear, thin plastic that fits comfortably over the teeth. Thus, the reason they are known as clear braces for adults. Patients wear each set of aligners for approximately two to three weeks and remove them only for brushing and eating. A patient could need as many as twelve to forty sets of aligners to straighten their teeth fully. Treatment time for “Invisalign® near me” can vary from six months to two years, depending upon the complexity of the case.

Orthodontists have been providing minor realignments with this type of removable appliance for years. Recently, however, using 3-D computer imaging technology and patented SmartTrack™ tray material, aligners have been able to straighten even moderately crowded or spaced teeth. Adults who have more severe crowding may still, however, require traditional braces.
