Clear braces are alternatives for patients in the center of Willoughby Hills
Dr. Michael Stern of Willoughby Hills is the primary dentist in a dental office that focuses on both restorative and cosmetic dentistry. For many patients, this includes orthodontic treatment. However, patients who are undecided about using traditional orthodontics to realign their smiles may want to take the time to learn about alternatives such as clear braces.
Clear braces are a common consideration for patients who are uneasy about hiding their smile behind metal brackets and wires with conventional orthodontics. Clear braces are offered through Smile Brighter Willoughby Hills with Invisalign and ClearCorrect, two brands of aligner therapy that are used to reposition the teeth and eliminate malocclusion concerns.
Invisalign and ClearCorrect use clear plastic aligner trays to reposition the teeth gently and without the need for brackets and wires, which make them a more desirable solution for those who do not want to deal with traditional braces. Invisalign and ClearCorrect both use a series of trays, each tray worn for two weeks before moving on to the next. Throughout the series, teeth will reposition into alignment, and by the end of the treatment, patients will have a beautiful smile!
The best candidates for clear braces are patients in the Willoughby Hills area who have mild to moderate malocclusion. Invisalign and ClearCorrect are also appropriate for patients who have issues with their bite including overbite, under bite, and cross bite. However, patients are educated on the importance of compliance with treatment to get optimum results, and must discuss with their dentist the need for a retainer afterwards to maintain the new alignment of the dental arches.
Dr. Michael Stern of Smile Brighter Willoughby Hills may suggest Invisalign and ClearCorrect for patients considering orthodontic alternatives. In some cases, he may direct patients towards another treatment known as Ortho-Tain, also available through his state-of-the-art practice.
