Invisalign® or ClearCorrect® Are Clear Choices for Many Patients
For adults and teens who want straighter teeth but don’t want the inconvenience or discomfort of wearing metal braces, Invisalign® and ClearCorrect® provide options available from select BayView Dental offices. They are convenient and affordable orthodontic treatment that do not require any irritating brackets or unsightly wires. Made of clear plastic that’s virtually invisible when worn by the patient, Invisalign® and ClearCorrect® aligners can help you discreetly straighten your teeth without feeling self-conscious or embarrassed. BayView Dental proudly offers these services for Sarasota-Bradenton, Venice and St. Petersburg patients of all ages.
Invisalign® and ClearCorrect® Clear Aligners Are Custom-Made
Whether you have crowded teeth, an overbite or an underbite, or noticeable gaps between your teeth, Invisalign® or ClearCorrect® can help you see significant improvements to your smile. It all starts with a consultation with one of our dentists to determine if you’d be a good candidate for clear aligners. Your aligners will be custom-made for you based upon a sophisticated scan of your smile and a state-of-the-art 3D printing process.
Aligners work by gradually applying pressure to the teeth you wish to reposition. Each set of aligners is worn about one to two weeks before you’ll move on to your next set of aligners. For the best results, your aligners will need to be worn at least 20-22 hours a day. However, they’re completely removable so you can keep eating all your favorite foods, participating in sports and physical activities you enjoy, and comfortably brush and floss your teeth as you usually would. It’s also recommended that you remove and rinse your aligners every night and gently brush them to keep them clean.
Straighten Your Teeth Discreetly with Invisalign® or ClearCorrect® Aligners
If mother nature didn’t bless you with a perfectly aligned smile, you’re not alone. However, that doesn’t mean you have to live with it. While metal braces were traditionally recommended for children and teens in the past, BayView Dental proudly offers Invisalign® and ClearCorrect® clear aligners for Sarasota-Bradenton, Venice and St. Petersburg patients of all ages. These innovative clear aligners help you straighten your teeth at your discretion because they’re completely transparent. Through a series of customized aligners, pressure is gradually applied to the teeth that need to be straightened.
Enjoy Your Favorite Foods with Removable Invisalign® and ClearCorrect® Clear Aligners
During your initial consultation, our dentist will take x-rays to determine if you’re a good candidate for clear aligners. We’ll then create an impression of your teeth and submit your prescription to have custom clear aligners explicitly created for you. Once your aligners have been made, you’ll return to our office to ensure they’re the right fit. We’ll also provide you with additional instructions for wearing and caring for them. Your clear aligners must be worn at least 22 hours per day for a period of two to three weeks, with a different set of custom aligners given to you periodically until your treatment has been completed.
Unlike the traditional metal braces, Invisalign® and ClearCorrect® clear aligners are completely removable so you can enjoy your favorite foods and comfortably brush and floss your teeth during the course of your treatment. Treatment time varies, taking anywhere from a few months to a few years. Individual results may vary, but many of our Sarasota-Bradenton, Venice and St. Petersburg area patients at BayView Dental have seen significant improvements in their smiles over time.
