Orthodontics is a dental specialty that involves correcting teeth that are improperly positioned. Carmel Mountain Dentistry is proud to offer Invisalign and clear aligner orthodontic therapy services for our patients.
Invisalign is a modern alternative to straighten your teeth without wires or metal. Invisalign® involves a series of custom trays designed specifically for you and the plan your dentist or orthodontist creates to move your teeth. The trays are made from a smooth plastic that covers your teeth and gradually moves them into place.
Unlike braces, there are no brackets to tighten. Instead, you use different trays as your teeth move into position. Typically trays are changed every two weeks. Invisalign® is a popular choice for straightening because it involves minimal disturbance to your daily routine or appearance. The trays are difficult to see and most people will have no idea you are wearing them.
If you have considered straightening your teeth, contact us today to learn more about Invisalign® and how it can benefit you.
