At Southern Shore Dental, our dentists can offer two options for orthodontics to help straighten your smile, including Invisalign® clear braces and traditional wire braces.
We offer Invisalign®, which is an orthodontic treatment for patients looking for an alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign® is a series of clear aligners that gradually shift the placement of your teeth to a preferred position.
What is involved for Invisalign®?
You will be required to visit your dentist for a consultation appointment to assess your candidacy for Invisalign®.
If you decide to pursue Invisalign® treatment, your dentist will then take impressions of your teeth. These impressions will be used to create the series of aligners that you will wear throughout your treatment.
You will wear your aligners for 22 hours each day, and change your aligners after 2 weeks to a new set of aligners.
Invisalign® also requires only one appointment every six weeks, so it is ideal for patients with busy lives.
