At Greater Dental Health, clear aligners are custom-made plastic trays that straighten teeth like braces.
Clear aligners work the same way as traditional braces but are less noticeable. The aligners can be removed for eating, cleaning your teeth, and other reasons, so you don’t have to worry about feeling restricted as you do with traditional braces. Since no wires or brackets are involved, clear aligners are also more comfortable than traditional braces.
Clear aligners are discreet, comfortable, and effective. They are virtually invisible when worn and can barely be detected. You can talk to people around you and continue with your day-to-day life without anyone knowing that you’re correcting your smile!
Clear aligners are removable. Patients can eat their favorite foods while wearing their aligners. They can play sports without fear of damaging the appliances. Most importantly, patients can remove them while brushing, flossing, and for important social occasions such as weddings, graduations, and business meetings. This allows patients to enjoy all of the benefits that come with having straight teeth without having to sacrifice their appearance in the process.
One of the most significant downsides of traditional braces is that they are bracketed and use wires that can break or become loose with regular use. This can be uncomfortable, painful, and embarrassing since it can make it difficult to speak normally. These awkward moments can be avoided with clear aligners since no wiring is involved in the treatment process. Instead, Invisalign uses custom-fit trays that fit directly over your teeth and gradually move them into the correct position over time.
Total treatment time varies, but you’ll start seeing results within 2-4 weeks! All you have to do is wear your aligners for 20-22 hours a day, and you’re on your way to a straight smile!
Clear aligners use technology that allows the visualization of your smile after the procedure.
Clear aligners are custom-made to offer the best and most comfortable fit.
Patients will need to visit us every six months to evaluate the progress of the treatment.
Wear the aligners for 22 hours a day; you will get a straight, healthy smile really soon.

Clear aligners are a series of custom-made, removable plastic trays that snap onto your teeth. Each tray is worn for about two weeks and then replaced with the next set of trays in your series.
These aligners can correct a variety of orthodontic issues, including:
Clear aligner therapy is an orthodontic treatment that uses removable plastic dental plates known as clear aligners to gradually move teeth into their proper position without braces or wires. Clear aligners can correct many issues with teeth as braces, such as crowding, spacing, and misalignments, including underbites, overbites, and crossbites. They are also effective for treating certain types of malocclusions. The time clear aligner takes for your teeth to be transformed into their preferred positions will depend on your specific needs and the severity of your case.
Overall, the biggest difference between clear aligners and braces is their treatment time. Braces are worn all day, every day, for an average of two years. On the other hand, Invisalign treatment takes about one year for most adults and teens. However, the length of your treatment depends largely on your compliance as well as the complexity of your case.
We can use this modern tooth straightening treatment to correct issues like:
Crooked and misaligned teeth aren’t just a cosmetic concern. By straightening teeth, you also:
Most adults can benefit from this treatment and can get excellent results. Some teens have a harder time wearing their aligners for the recommended 23 hours a day. If that’s the case, traditional braces may be the better choice.
It’s simple. Your invisible aligners will come with an easy-to-use cleaning system. We’ll show you how it works during your visit. Your aligners can also be rinsed in warm (not hot) water and brushed gently with your toothbrush.
