Invisalign and Spark Clear Aligner System Treatment
For teens and adults, clear aligners can be a great alternative to traditional metal braces for straightening crooked teeth. Invisalign and the Spark Clear Aligner System use clear aligner trays to move teeth without any wires or brackets. Clear aligners are ideal for anyone who wants a straighter smile but is also concerned about the aesthetics of traditional metal braces.
The Many Benefits of Clear Aligners
- Clear aligners fit flush against your teeth, so there are no sharp edges or protruding bits to irritate the inside of your mouth.
- Clear aligners are largely unnoticeable to the naked eye. With clear aligners, a patient can receive teeth-alignment treatment without having to wear traditional metal braces.
- Patients can remove their clear aligner trays to eat and clean their teeth, which makes them much easier to keep clean and care for than metal braces.
- There are no wires or brackets involved with clear aligners.
- At the start of your treatment, you can see an image of how we expect your teeth to look like when treatment is complete.
How Does Invisalign and the Spark Clear Aligner System Work?
After a complimentary initial consultation with Dr. Kendra Pratt, full orthodontic records are taken including a digital scan of the patient’s teeth. This scan allows Dr. Pratt to create a digital treatment plan that is tailored to each patient’s needs. After Dr. Pratt’s approval, the aligners are manufactured, and the patient is scheduled for their aligner delivery. Patients must wear their clear aligner trays for 20 to 22 hours per day to see results. That means that patients can remove them to eat or for special occasions, but patients have to remember to put them back on their teeth. The ability to remove clear aligners makes teeth cleaning a snap, especially when compared to the cleaning process with traditional braces. Our team will make sure that you have all the instructions you need to care for your clear aligners after your appointment.
The Spark Clear Aligner System and Invisalign treatment are excellent for both teenagers and adults who want to straighten their teeth without making significant sacrifices to their lifestyle. While clear aligners may not be suited for everyone, your orthodontist can advise you on whether the aligner system will work for you.
