What is Invisalign Clear Braces?


Invisalign braces work by using clear aligner trays that are fitted to patient’s teeth on a number of occasions to put pressure on the teeth and keep them moving in the desired direction. Invisalign uses 3D imaging technology to determine what teeth will look like after treatment has completed. Using a series of aligner trays, patients can expect to see results in a few weeks. They are easy to apply, easy to adjust, and easy to use. Patients like these kind of braces because they are clear, and they are removeable so patients can eat and drink without worrying about food getting stuck in their braces. What’s more, Invisalign braces are fast-acting. The average patient only requires invisalign braces for less than 24 months. There are a number of benefits associated with Invisalign, including faster treatment, less discomfort, and more. As a general dentist,  Dr. Milton continues to upgrade his skillset and dental knowledge in order to expand the products and services he offers his patients. Invisalign clear braces are a popular alternative option to traditional braces in many dental offices in Ohio and across the nation.


Who Should Consider Invisalign?


Invisalign braces are often worn by working adults who prefer to be discreet about their braces and dental treatments. Patients who are old enough to understand the responsibility of adhering to the treatment schedule associated with Invisalign Clear Braces are the best candidates for this type of treatment. Patients need to be willing to wear their invisalign braces on a regular basis. While the aligner trays are removable so patients can eat or drink, patients who forget to put their aligner trays back in after a meal, or patients who don’t wear their aligner trays while they sleep won’t see the full effect of their dental treatment. In order for this type of braces to work, they need to be worn as much as possible, like traditional braces. Teenagers do opt for Invisalign braces, but because the cost is higher than traditional braces, sometimes the patient’s health insurance will only cover one type of braces or treatment option.

What About Traditional Braces?


Dr. Brittany Heffernan is a highly trained and professional dentist who has been practicing for many years. Working out of Akron, Dr. Brittany provides treatment for crooked teeth using traditional braces. Thanks to additional dental training he has received, Dr. Brittany is qualified to treat patients with traditional braces. This is good news for patients. It means you don’t need to get referred to an orthodontist for common issues related to having your teeth straightened. This allows Dr. Brittany to provide even more services and convenience to his Akron patients. Patients of all ages  are eligible for traditional braces, and inquire about them on a regular basis. Teenagers are the most popular recipients of traditional braces, but some adults do opt to have them placed on their teeth as well. Traditional braces come in both metal brackets and clear brackets, which provide another option for patients to consider if they are worried about aesthetics. Remember, braces are a part of life for millions of people, so don’t put off getting the treatment you need because you are afraid of the way they look. The sooner you start your treatment, the sooner you will be done and have the smile you’ve always wanted.


Who Should Consider Traditional Braces?


Braces are a very common dental treatment for changing the way teeth look, and anyone who has crooked, or misaligned teeth has likely thought about getting braces to make their smile look better. Crooked teeth don’t work the way they should and additional wear and tear can result from crooked teeth. In addition to helping patients get a great smile, Dr. Brittany helps patients by restoring the function of their teeth. If patients have an overbite, or a crossbite, they may consider getting traditional braces as well.
