Orthodontics is that branch of dentistry focused on aligning the upper and lower teeth into an ideal bite, one of our services at St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville.
We have two types of clear braces, Invisalign and ClearCorrect. Both are referred to as “aligners.” They look like an athlete’s mouth guard. You wear a series of customized aligners that gradually increase pressure on your teeth to move them into an ideal position.
Aligners have a number of advantages over metal braces:
- Nearly undetectable. Since they’re clear, people standing just a few feet away may not know you’re wearing them.
- Removeable. You can pop your aligner out at mealtime, and to brush and floss.
- Comfortable. Metal braces have drawbacks like abrasions inside the cheeks. Clear braces? Not an issue.
Best of all, clear braces from St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville deliver great results! We have straightened smiles in patients from North Waldorf, East Huntingtown, and South Laplata. People also come to our practice for general and family dentistry. Call for an appointment today!
