Clear Aligner Trays – (Like Invisalign)
Does the thought of having to wear metal braces for an extended period of time make you uneasy?
Similar to Invisalign, clear aligner trays are the way to straighten teeth invisibly! This is the answer for those who crave a beautiful smile, but want to avoid the attention of traditional braces. Few people will notice that you are wearing aligner trays at all.
Take a look in the mirror and ask yourself, “Are my teeth overcrowded, too far apart, or have they shifted since my youth?” If you answered ‘yes’, clear aligner trays can be a great option for you.
You will get a series of customized trays just like invisalign that will gently move your teeth. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks moving your teeth gradually week by week, until the intended results are attained.
Advantages of Invisalign like Aligner Trays
- Clear – Most people will not see or know you are wearing clear braces.
- Comfortable – Aligners are gentle to your mouth and have a sleek surface.
- Detachable – Take them out to eat or brush, then put them back in again.
- Affordable – In most cases, the cost of Invisalign like trays is less than metal braces.
- Adaptable – Whether you are a busy mom or a business executive, you will feel confident and in control of your life and look.
Six Month Braces – Powerprox
Do you have mild crowding? Did you have straight teeth once upon a time?
Using the latest in orthodontic material and technologies, our modern family dental office can straighten your smile in as little as six months, in many cases. We use many of the same techniques that dentists have used in the past; however, the Powerprox design is unique in that the wire used to align your teeth has a memory.
These hi-tech archwires, when twisted, turned, or bent by the misalignment of your teeth, will naturally move back to their original shape. Your teeth will be realigned in record time with amazing results.
Is the Powerprox Six Month Braces process damaging?
No. The shape memory of the archwires pulls slowly using low forces so as to not bruise periodontal ligament or PDL in the gum lining. Conversely, this type of bruising can happen when traditional braces are tightened too much which in turn can slow the process of tooth alignment.
Do I need an orthodontist?
Many adults want to improve the aesthetic of their smile without having to go through a 2 year plus process at the orthodontist. Getting your smile straightened without seeing an orthodontist can save time and money as regular braces cost more. Some children’s misaligned teeth can be easily corrected with the newer technologies. If however, your case is an overly complex one, we can always refer you to an orthodontist specifically.
Are clear braces an option?
Yes. Breath easy knowing that Caring Smiles Dental has your inner and outer cosmetic appearance covered. Our clear Powerprox brackets are nearly invisible. That family portrait you have scheduled in two weeks will bring more smiles and less worry knowing you are wearing the camouflaging magic of Powerprox.
In some cases, lingual braces can even be placed behind your teeth. If this is done, there will be no sign of braces when you smile your brightest. Ask our expert dental team for details.
Advantages of Powerprox Six Month Braces
- Fast – Shorter treatment period
- Safe – Gentle on gums and teeth
- Hidden – Clear or lingual braces
- Convenient – Fewer appointments
Many children can be treated with either braces or invisalign like trays. Both have certain advantages. Done at the right time your child’s teeth can be corrected easily.
Oftentimes additional appliances can be used to make more room as your child grows.
Does your young child have the following issues?
- Impacted Teeth
- Cross Bite
Caring Smiles Dental’s pediatric team is able to take advantage of a child’s own natural growth process by treating the above oral issues with time and a palatal expander.
What is a palatal expander?
If a child’s upper jaw is too small or narrow for the teeth to push through or lay comfortably in the mouth, a pediatric palatal expander is used. A young person’s maxillary region is made of two separate halves. While your child is young, the two halves are malleable, a palatal expander can be placed to slowly widen and stabilize these bones over time.
How much does it cost to straighten my teeth?
Having a million dollar smile doesn’t have to cost a million dollars. At Caring Smiles Dental in Beaverton, we want you and your loved ones to look their best without draining your savings account or your child’s college fund.
Often for aesthetically driven cases you don’t need to see an orthodontist which can make the whole process possible at a lower and more affordable cost.
We accept most dental insurance plans. We offer flat fee pricing for our orthodontic procedures, which makes the costs easy to understand. Our cost for braces and Invisalign like clear aligner trays are less than what an orthodontist would charge. Whether you choose to go with six-month braces or Invisalign like clear trays, the cost is the same and does not change.
By calling our team and setting up a free dental consultation, you will be able to decide which orthodontic treatment will best fit you and your families dental needs.
