Invisible – since the aligners are transparent most people won’t even notice them, and so nobody will know that you are straightening your teeth. So you will be able to smile more during treatment as well as after.
Removable – you take your clear braces out to eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Also, dental hygiene is not a problem, something that can be difficult when wearing fixed orthodontic braces.
Comfortable – conventional braces can cause irritation to your teeth and gums because of the metal wires and bands, with Invisalign the aligners are comfortable and you shouldn’t experience such problems.
Clearpath® has its patented system, and so it allows you to view your virtual treatment plan on a computer generated screen so that you can see how your teeth will move overtimes and how straight your teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
Clearpath® is the invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners. And it’s been proven effective in both clinical researchers and practices throughout the world.
How Does Clearpath® Work?
You wear each set of clear aligners for about two weeks, removing them only when you need to eat, drink, or clean your teeth
As you replace each aligner with the next one in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position your orthodontist or dentist has prescribed.
You’ll visit your orthodontist or dentist about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
Traditional braces treat an abnormal bite or crooked teeth by correcting the placement of the teeth. Traditional braces are available in ceramic or metal, with silver or colored modules (the small pieces that hold the wires in place on the teeth)
Self-ligating braces treat an abnormal bite or crooked teeth by correcting the placement of the teeth. They are available in ceramic or metal; modules are not required.
Lingual braces treat an abnormal bite or crooked teeth by correcting the placement of the teeth. They are placed behind the teeth; they are available in ceramic and metal.
An aligner corrects the placement of the teeth. It is a transparent plastic sheath that fits over the teeth to reposition them.
