Here at Hoybjerg Family Orthodontics, we are committed to providing you with the highest quality care to help you achieve the smile you desire. Through treatments like Invisalign, Invisalign Teen, clear braces, and more, we help our patients achieve a gorgeous new smile in a discreet way that fits their lifestyle. If you’re considering having orthodontic work done to improve your smile, you may be wondering which treatment option is right for you. Let’s take a look at both.
Just as effective as traditional metal braces, clear braces are made of a ceramic material that is designed to blend in with the color of the teeth, providing a less noticeable appearance. Typically, this ceramic material will not stain or discolor. However, these appliances are more delicate, less durable, and more prone to chipping, so patients must take extra care with clear braces.
Clear or ceramic braces are a good option for adult patients who need an effective way to improve their smile without the metal appearance of traditional braces, and who may have a case which is a bit more complex and cannot be handled with Invisalign. They are not recommended for children, patients who are involved in such activities as contact sports, or those with very severe orthodontic issues.
The Invisalign system is comprised of a series of progressive aligners that are custom designed to fit your teeth and mouth. Each set of these clear and removable aligners gradually shifts and moves your teeth into their proper position. Your smile will be correctly aligned after completing all stages in the treatment process. Typically, each set of aligners will be worn for about two weeks, but this can vary on a case by case basis.
Invisalign is perfect for those patients who desire a discreet way to straighten their teeth and need the convenience of being able to remove the appliance. It is a great option for those who have an uncomplicated orthodontic case, such as only one or two crooked teeth, or a minor underbite or overbite.
At Hoybjerg Family Orthodontics, we specialize in both Invisalign and Invisalign Teen, which is created just for teenagers to make treatment easier than ever. Invisalign Teen Roseville offers a blue dot indicator which helps Dr. Hoybjerg monitor compliance and comes with six free replacement aligners for those unfortunate times when an aligner is lost or damaged.
If your case is more complicated and requires a lot of work, braces may be more effective. Invisalign is not recommended for severe cases such as crossbite, malocclusions or severely crooked teeth. Your Roseville orthodontist will help you determine which treatment is best for your individual case.
