At King Orthodontics, we see many patients who would love to straighten their teeth and improve their bite – but they don’t want anyone to see that they’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.
We understand. We have many patients, both teens, and adults, who would rather have people concentrate on what they’re saying than what’s in their mouth. We’re happy to share some orthodontic devices with you, both metal braces and invisible plastic aligners, that are nearly invisible.
Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen® are clear plastic aligners that are custom-made for your teeth and mouth. They’re an easy, invisible alternative to traditional metal braces. Your orthodontist will take measurements to determine the specifics of your treatment, and a series of aligners will be produced that are meant for your teeth only. Every two weeks, you’ll discard your aligners and replace them with a new set. These trays gently push your teeth into place, and they fit comfortably in your mouth. The best part is that they’re both removable and invisible. No one will see them, and you only take them out to drink, eat, and floss, and brush.
These braces are much like traditional braces, but they’re clear. They’re less visible than other kinds of braces because the materials used are nearly invisible. Since they are more fragile than traditional braces, they are only used on the front teeth.
These braces are self-ligating, which means that they use tieless braces to move teeth more quickly and with less pressure. They’re a combination of clear braces and clear aligners that deliver fast results. Additionally, the components are less likely to yellow or discolor.
These braces are placed behind your teeth so that no one can see them. They can be worn by anyone, and are customized to your teeth. They’re very effective for any kind of bite problem, too.
Keep in mind that whether you’re using braces or Invisalign, you can speed up the movement of your teeth by as much as 50% by using AcceleDent, a safe and effective treatment that is used in conjunction with your orthodontic appliance.
There are many different options available if you’d like to use less visible braces or aligners. Call King Orthodontics at one of our two convenient locations in downtown Pittsburgh and North Pittsburgh. We can help you choose the right clear braces or invisible aligners that will straighten your teeth, invisibly and quickly.
