Greenville, SC residents discover clear braces for their orthodontic needs
Dr. John Palmer, and Dr. Daniel Knause of Palmer Distinctive Dentistry in Greenville, SC offer general, cosmetic, and orthodontic care to meet patients’ needs. Our practice offers Invisalign and ClearCorrect as alternatives to traditional braces. Clear braces offer correction without the embarrassment of metal brackets and wires.
A consultation and examination is required to determine if you are a qualified candidate for Invisalign or ClearCorrect. Invisalign and ClearCorrect are clear, nearly invisible aligner trays used to correct mild to moderate orthodontic problems.
What are clear braces?
If you are a good candidate, there are a few key points of ClearCorrect or Invisalign aligner trays.
- Aligner trays are customized to each patient. The trays are designed to place gentle pressure on your teeth to guide them into the appropriate positions.
- A series of trays is used. Each tray is worn daily, only removed for eating and brushing teeth. The same tray is used for a couple weeks and then the next in the series is used. By using new trays, the placement of pressure is adjusted to continue the movement of the teeth.
- Made of clear plastic, the trays are barely visible to the public.
- The length of the treatment varies from patient to patient.
You control your own success
Remember, with aligner trays, you are in control of your own treatment. You need to be responsible about wearing your trays for the recommended period each day. Failing to wear the trays as recommended can lead to a less successful treatment outcome and can be more expensive later if additional correction is needed.
