It is said that the first thing that you notice about someone is their smile. If this is true, it is no surprise that just about everyone wants to have straight teeth and a beautiful smile.
While this may come naturally for some people, others may need a little help. If you want to straighten your teeth but you don’t want to wear conventional braces, speak with the team at Livonia Family Smiles about Invisalign and ClearCorrect.
These solutions consist of a set of clear, invisible oral trays that Livonia Family Smiles places over your teeth, where they effectively disappear and blend into your mouth. Each tray moves your teeth slowly toward the desired position. Over time, each tray is swapped for the next tray in the set in order to continue moving your teeth.
Clear braces are a wonderful solution for many people who want to straighten their teeth but would like to avoid conventional braces. However, there are certain groups of people who may not be great candidates for clear braces.
In general, clear braces work well for people who have mild or moderately crowded or misaligned teeth. If your teeth are severely out of place, clear braces may not be for you. In addition, clear braces may not be advised for those with severe overbites, underbites, or crossbites.
In addition, clear braces may not be the best solution for children. Children’s mouths are still in the process of developing, and as such, it can be quite a bit more complex to straighten their teeth. For teenagers and adults, however, clear braces may be the perfect solution.
The team at Livonia Family Smiles will take digital impressions of your mouth in order to develop a plan of care. They will then use this information to create your unique set of clear aligner trays.
Once the trays are complete, you will use each tray for the required length of time before switching to the next tray. Oftentimes, treatment lasts between 10 and 24 weeks.
