Advantages of Clear Braces

The dentists at St. Mary’s in Mechanicsville recommend Invisalign or ClearCorrect clear braces because they have so many benefits:

  • They are virtually unnoticeable.
  • You can eat what you want—simply remove your aligners for meals.
  • Teeth aligner trays are easy to clean.
  • Your own teeth are also easier to clean during a clear aligners treatment—simply remove them to brush and floss as well.

How Teeth Aligners Work

Teeth Aligners Clear Braces Mechanicsville MD - St. Mary's Dental Southern MarylandTraditional braces move teeth into their ideal position using metal brackets and wires. Invisalign and ClearCorrect aligners, on the other hand, both use a series of clear teeth aligners to move your teeth into position. Your aligners will be custom-made especially for you from smooth, comfortable, and virtually unnoticeable clear plastic.

Wearing your aligners over time will gradually shift your teeth into the exact place your dentist plans out for you. You’ll simply wear each aligner for the specified period of time until your treatment is done and your smile looks great.

Straighten Your Teeth Faster

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign and ClearCorrect clear braces can usually correct misalignments in twelve months or less. And since there are no brackets to check on or wires to tighten, you’ll spend less time at our Mechanicsville, MD, office.

Frequently Asked Questions About Invisalign

Here the answers to some of the most common questions we get about Invisalign clear braces:

How does Clear Aligner Therapy work?
Clear Aligner Therapy uses computer assisted smile design to “print” a series of clear plastic trays used to sequentially straighten teeth. Trays are worn at all times 24/7 except for during brushing, flossing, eating and drinking anything other than water. For the most predictable treatment results we recommend it for mild to moderate straightening of the teeth.
How long does Clear Aligner Therapy take?
Depending on the case, and how compliant the patient is with wearing their trays as close to 24/7 as possible, some cases can be completed in as little as 6 months. After your case is designed and before it is sent to the lab for production, we are able to give you an estimate based on the movement needed for your teeth to achieve the goals you have for your smile.
Can Clear Aligner Therapy fix an overbite?
This is a great question. The short answer is: maybe. There are many reasons that people may have an overbite. Some reasons are related to only the teeth. Some reasons may be related to your jaw bones. Other reasons may be a combination of both. Dr. McCray or Dr. Demer are happy to let you know if Clear Aligner Therapy may be a good option for you!
