Greg DeVor knows the importance and benefits of braces. Not only do braces improve the look of your smile, but they also contribute to overall oral health.
Adults, children, and teens all come to us for different clear aligner therapy reasons. Children's teeth are sometimes misaligned when baby teeth don't fall out on schedule, come out by accident, or have misformed growth patterns. Teens and adults may come to us seeking to improve their smiles or to correct the alignment of the jaw for easier eating and speaking. Whatever your reason for seeking braces, we strive to make your experience as comfortable as we can. With many options available, it's possible to repair misaligned teeth and the jaw more efficiently and comfortably than in the past.
Treatment & Appointments
Since treatment can take up to a few years to be fully completed, it's important that patients understand the process. After the initial exam and discussion of the patient's goals, we create a treatment map, which lays out the planned adjustment. In the case of traditional braces, adjustments take place approximately every two weeks, with wires, springs, or rubber bands added or rearranged as needed. Clear braces require new aligners at each appointment, each one gradually shifting the affected teeth into proper alignment.
Invisalign & Its Advantages
When adults come in for clear aligner therapy work, they sometimes prefer to avoid the visibility of metal braces. Invisalign and ClearCorrect provide a much more discreet alternative to conventional metal braces while still aligning the teeth. Because Invisalign and ClearCorrect aligners are formed to every individual tooth, the treatment plan maps out the planned movement of each one. For teens, results with these types of clear aligners take about as long as conventional braces. Treatment for adults typically takes about a year. When a treatment plan is mapped out, you can see the projected alignment of your teeth at each phase and the estimate for the duration your personal process will require. This is a benefit that not all conventional braces can offer.
