How Do Clear Braces for Adults Work?

Invisalign clear aligners are translucent trays custom-made to fit securely around each arch of teeth. Your clear aligners come in sets and will be used in sequence to gradually straighten your teeth over time. Invisalign aligners use gentle pressure that shifts teeth into position, and each tray will bring you closer to your optimal alignment.

One of the key benefits of Invisalign treatment is that the clear, low-profile trays provide a discreet and aesthetically pleasing way to straighten your smile. These removable trays are comfortable and eliminate the need for wires and brackets, meaning you don't have to alter your diet or personal oral hygiene routine while straightening your smile. Our clear braces require 22 hours of daily wear time to provide the best results and can treat moderate to severe misalignments over a period generally ranging from six months to three years.

Is Adult Invisalign Treatment Right for Me?

Invisalign clear aligners offer a versatile orthodontic treatment option that can treat many misalignment issues. We've had excellent success using Invisalign clear braces for a wide variety of patient needs and will fit you with the right option to achieve your smile goals. The issues we treat with our clear braces for adults include:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crowding
  • Unwanted gaps between teeth
  • Crossbite
  • Painful bite

Our dental team will listen to your aesthetic and oral health goals and thoroughly evaluate your oral condition to ensure clear braces are the most effective option to straighten your teeth. If you've recently had braces and your bite has relapsed, Invisalign treatment can be a great option to regain your results.

Our Invisalign Treatment Process

When you come into our practice to discuss your orthodontic options, our dentist will perform a thorough oral examination to determine what's right for you. If we conclude that clear braces are the optimal treatment plan to straighten your smile, we'll start by taking precision impressions of your teeth using our iTero® scanner. This scanner is ergonomically designed for comfort and avoids uncomfortable putty impressions while producing an extremely detailed model of your smile.

We send these impressions to a trusted dental lab where your clear braces are created. Once we receive your new aligners, we'll invite you back for a placement appointment where we'll check your first set and ensure a comfortable, secure fit. We'll also take this opportunity to offer you care tips and outline your treatment schedule and guidelines for making the Invisalign clear aligners process as successful as possible.

Maintaining Your Adult Invisalign Treatment Results

At the end of the clear braces process, your teeth will need time to settle, and retainers are vital to maintaining and protecting your results. We use Vivera® retainers made from the same durable, translucent material as your clear aligner trays to reinforce your results as your bite stabilizes. When your treatment ends, you'll come in for an appointment where we'll provide your Vivera retainer and give you instructions about how long and how often you'll have to wear it.

How Do I Care for My Invisalign Clear Braces?

Taking the time to maintain clear aligners throughout your treatment is a vital aspect of ensuring the success of the process. We'll give you a detailed breakdown of the best ways to keep them in excellent condition at your fitting appointment. Some key points to remember include:

  • Never eating or drinking anything other than water with your aligners on
  • Cleaning your aligners every day, inside and out, with scent-free antibacterial soap and a soft-bristled toothbrush
  • Brushing your teeth after you eat to remove excess food particles before replacing your aligners
  • Rinsing your aligners out with water before you put them back on
  • Putting your aligner trays in the carrying case to avoid losing them when you take them off

If you lose or damage one of your trays, we recommend wearing the previous set as a placeholder and contacting us immediately so we can advise you on how to proceed.
