Clear braces are wonderful alternatives to conventional orthodontics for patients in Willoughby Hills

Clear Braces

Willoughby Hills area patients who are considering alternatives to traditional metal bracket and wire braces are often interested in speaking with Dr. Michael Stern about solutions such as clear braces. Clear braces are orthodontic solutions that are much more discreet than traditional methods of metal brackets and wires, which have been used for decades in correcting the smile. With continued advances in dental technology and techniques, patients can now improve the alignment of their teeth and bite with solutions such as Invisalign and ClearCorrect.
Both Invisalign and ClearCorrect are clear tray aligner options that are used to reposition teeth. They are worn over the dental arch to move teeth gradually into better alignment within the dental arch. Patients wear these for a specific period and they will see results with continued compliance.
Invisalign and ClearCorrect start with a consultation appointment with Dr. Michael Stern. This is done to evaluate the smile and determine if patients are appropriate for this particular type of treatment. These options are best for patients with mild to moderate malocclusion, and can work for those addressing overbite, under bite, and cross bite.
Patients who are deemed good candidates for these methods of realignment undergo a series of impressions, which are sent to outside laboratories for the creation of their tray series. The number of trays in a series of Invisalign or ClearCorrect aligners will vary, depending on the severity of the misalignment.
When the trays arrive, patients are educated on how to use them. They snap into place over the dental arch and they are worn for two weeks at a time before the next one is used. Over the course of time, the teeth are gently repositioned into a more functional, aesthetic alignment in which they improve the overall health and beauty of the smile.
