Are you a teen or adult who wants teeth straightening? Are you cringing at the thought of wearing braces?
Help is here. Invisible braces in Columbus are available from our experts at Capstone Dental in Clintonville. We offer beautiful clear braces in a removable mouthpiece.
It’s important to note that while we don’t offer the Invisalign brand of clear braces at Capstone Dental, we do provide an alternative called Clear Correct. Invisalign and Clear Correct are the two major brand names for invisible teeth aligners and each brand works exactly the same when it comes to straightening your teeth. The only major difference is that Invisalign is a global brand whereas Clear Correct is an American company.
Invisalign treatment is an orthodontic solution that uses clear aligners to gradually straighten your teeth. Clear-colored, custom-fitted trays, in a set of 20 to 30, are used if the straightening is for both upper and lower teeth. Our skilled dentists give these to you two at a time.
Each aligner, or tray, is worn for approximately two weeks. You only remove them when you eat and brush your teeth.
Consistency is the key to adjusting your teeth with Invisalign The actual amount of time needed varies from person to person. Most adults get the level of straightening they want within a year. For teens, it can take up to a year and a half. It works best if you keep them in your mouth 20 to 22 hours a day.
In Columbus, Ohio, Invisalign braces are rapidly replacing traditional braces. According to research by Invisalign, more than 90% of teens feel that regular wire braces would make it hard for them to fit in with their peers. The thought of wearing wire braces at a business meeting has kept many adults from even considering getting their teeth straightened. Invisalign gives you an option that works for your professional lifestyle.
