Dr. Brooke Kittell at Lincoln Family Dentistry is a certified Invisalign® provider. Invisalign®, or clear braces for adults, provides an excellent alternative for adults who wish to have straighter teeth but don’t want the appearance of traditional braces.
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 that they are often referred to 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.
Invisalign® treatment is currently available for both adults and teenagers. Invisalign® is an excellent choice for those who would like to have straighter teeth but want to avoid traditional metal braces. If you think you’re a good candidate for Invisalign®, we would be happy to set up a consultation. The first step is to come to our office to have an initial dental exam and evaluation.
