Invisalign straightens teeth without the use of metal braces. Clear braces like Invisalign use a series of custom clear plastic retainers to slowly push and pull your teeth into the proper position over time. Less noticeable than traditional braces, Invisalign can be easily taken on and off.
Traditional metal braces are not the only option when it comes to improving your smile. When undergoing treatment with clear braces, there are no metal brackets or wire. Invisalign offers an effective and discreet solution to a misaligned smile. Many adults who get braces opt for the 6 Month Braces treatment option at Rapid Braces so they can get their braces off fast.
Who can wear them?
Invisalign Alternatives like Clear Braces can be worn by both teenagers and adults. Closing gaps between teeth, treating overbite, underbite, open bite, crossbite, and an overcrowded mouth is all something that adult orthodontics treatment can help with. We can discuss whether an Invisalign Alternative is the right orthodontic treatment for you after an examination of X-rays of your teeth.
How does the Adult Braces process work?
Examination, X-rays, and a 3D model of your teeth are all used to develop a personalized treatment plan for your Invisalign journey. How your teeth need to shift, and how long it will take all play into how your treatment plan will work. Your custom retainers are crafted after we take X-rays and complete a close examination of your teeth. You can also see how Clear Braces progressively corrects orthodontic issues when you visit the office for regular checkups.
How Does Wearing Clear Braces Work?
Firstly, we check the fit of your Invisalign Alternative in our office to check for any necessary adjustments.
Clear Braces fit smoothly into a normal day and is easy to wear. Simply place the clear braces over the teeth once you receive your aligners. For the first part, your aligners may fit tightly as your teeth are pulled into place.
How do Adult Braces feel?
Adult Braces are designed to be discreet and as comfortable as possible. Some mild discomfort may appear as your teeth start to move into position. The pressure applied from your braces will gradually fade over time. Please give us a call if you encounter any significant discomfort or pain. We will schedule an appointment with you to take a look at your teeth, gums, and braces to make sure no adjustments need to be made.
How long will treatment take?
Treatment time for many orthodontists who offer Invisalign is often 1-2 years, but Dr. Georgaklis can get your braces off faster with his 6 Month Braces treatment. Over 90% of cases at Rapid Braces are finished in 6 months or less. Schedule an appointment to learn more about how you can get a beautiful smile fast at Rapid Braces.
