Invisible or Clear Braces

Considering clear or invisible braces to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted!   Call McGue Dental Care to set up a free consultation to see if invisible braces are right for you.

What is it?

The clear or invisible braces are a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that gradually reposition your teeth.  People chose clear braces because they are more visually appealing than traditional braces.

Why would I want it?

Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments. Clear braces also allow you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

How does it work?

You wear each set of aligners for about 2-3 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to the final position Dr. McGue has prescribed. You’ll visit our office about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.

After a thorough exam and a review of your health history and lifestyle, we’ll be able to determine if invisible braces are right for you.
