Invisalign® Clear Braces, Subtle Orthodontics for Petoskey and Gaylord, MI
Patients who would rather not cover their smiles with visible metal hardware can benefit from a clear braces solution like Invisalign. Over 4 million patients worldwide have undergone orthodontic treatment with Invisalign clear, removable braces for teens and older adults. Made out of sturdy polyurethane plastic, the trays are practically invisible and created according to your unique dentition. You will wear each aligner for two weeks before advancing to the next in the series — and after about one year, on average, the treatment is complete. The treatment is largely self-directed for increased convenience. With Invisalign, patients can spend less time thinking about their smiles and more time enjoying their increasingly straighter teeth.
Invisalign can be used to treat the most common orthodontic issues, including overbite, underbite, crossbite, and crowded or gapped teeth. More complex cases will probably still require treatment with traditional braces, however. Teeth and gums should be healthy before beginning with any orthodontic treatment. You and Dr. Reed will discuss your options during an orthodontic consultation to help you fully understand what your options are.
The benefits of Invisalign include:
- Subtle treatment
- Removable trays allow you to speak confidently at big events
- Smooth plastic is more comfortable than metal brackets and wires
- More convenient than metal braces
- Continue eating what you like
- No special techniques for brushing and flossing
