Invisible Braces for Adults

At Claremont Dental Institute, we understand how crooked teeth can affect your confidence and oral health. Addressing this common issue, we offer state-of-the-art treatment options like invisible braces. 

Invisible Braces for Adults

Understanding Crooked Teeth

Crooked teeth result from various factors, including genetics, thumb-sucking during childhood, and improper dental care. Misaligned teeth can lead to more significant issues, such as difficulty chewing, speech problems, and an increased risk of tooth decay. At Claremont Dental Institute, we prioritize correcting these issues to improve both your health and quality of life.  

What Are Invisible Braces?

Invisible braces provide a modern, discreet alternative to traditional metal braces. They use clear, plastic aligners to gradually straighten teeth without drawing attention. Patients often prefer invisible braces for their subtle appearance and effective results.  

Invisible braces come in different forms. The most common type involves clear aligners, which are custom-made for each patient. Another type includes ceramic braces, which use tooth-colored brackets and wires. Each option offers a blend of functionality and aesthetic appeal.  

Benefits of Invisible Braces

Choosing invisible braces offers multiple benefits. You can remove clear aligners for eating and oral hygiene, making them convenient compared to traditional braces. They also cause less discomfort, as the smooth plastic reduces friction against your gums and cheeks. Moreover, invisible braces require fewer visits to the dentist, saving you time.  

The Treatment Process at Claremont Dental Institute

The first step involves a thorough consultation and examination at Claremont Dental Institute. Our orthodontists will evaluate your teeth, jaws, and oral health to determine the most effective treatment plan. We use advanced imaging technology to provide a precise diagnosis.  

Customized Treatment Plan

After the initial consultation, we develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. Our orthodontists create a series of clear aligners designed to move your teeth gradually into the desired position. This personalized approach ensures effective results and a comfortable experience.  

Fitting and Adjustment

Once the aligners are ready, our team at Claremont Dental Institute fits them to your teeth. We ensure they fit snugly and comfortably. You’ll need to wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before switching to the next set in the series. Regular check-ups allow us to monitor your progress and make necessary adjustments.  

Maintenance and Care

Maintaining oral hygiene becomes crucial while using invisible braces. You should brush your teeth after every meal to prevent food particles from getting trapped in the aligners. Flossing daily also helps remove plaque buildup between teeth and along the gum line. Cleaning the aligners themselves is equally important; you should rinse them with lukewarm water and brush them gently.  

Follow-up Appointments

Regular follow-up appointments at Claremont Dental Institute help us track your progress and make any necessary modifications to your treatment plan. These visits ensure that your teeth move as planned and that you achieve the best possible results. Consistent follow-up care allows us to address any concerns you might have promptly.
