Invisalign® Vs. Clear Braces

Invisalign presents numerous advantages over traditional clear or ceramic braces. Firstly, its virtually invisible aligners offer a discreet orthodontic solution, ensuring your treatment doesn’t detract from your smile. Unlike clear braces with visible brackets and wires, Invisalign’s clear plastic aligners are hardly noticeable. Moreover, being removable, Invisalign allows you to indulge in your favorite foods without constraints and maintain optimal oral hygiene through regular brushing and flossing. Conversely, clear or ceramic braces can be trickier to clean and might necessitate dietary adjustments. In terms of comfort, Invisalign reigns supreme with no metal wires to cause irritation, often requiring fewer orthodontist visits. With Invisalign, you can enjoy efficient teeth straightening with minimal disruption to your lifestyle and appearance.

Clear Braces

Patients in the Baton Rouge area frequently inquire about clear braces, an excellent alternative to traditional metal braces due to their discreet appearance. During your FREE consultation, we conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and take X-rays to determine the most effective treatment method for straightening your teeth. Clear braces work to move your teeth into the correct position, but we also assess your jaw, especially if you have a misalignment like an overbite, which may require correction for the perfect smile you desire. At Pearl Dental Group, we tailor customized treatment plans to each patient’s needs, ensuring they have all the necessary information to make an informed decision about clear braces. If you reside in the Baton Rouge area, don’t hesitate to contact us to schedule your consultation and inquire about Invisalign® for Teens.

How is Invisalign® different for adults vs teens

Invisalign caters to both adults and teens, recognizing their distinct orthodontic needs and lifestyles. For adults, Invisalign offers a discreet solution that seamlessly aligns teeth, blending into professional and social environments. The removable clear aligners allow adults to maintain their routines, enjoy favorite foods, and uphold thorough oral hygiene. In contrast, Invisalign for teens is tailored to their active lifestyles and unique concerns. It addresses typical teenage orthodontic issues while prioritizing appearance and confidence. With features like compliance indicators ensuring proper wear, Invisalign for teens fosters responsibility while ensuring effective treatment. Whether refining the smiles of adults or boosting the confidence of teenagers, Invisalign is crafted to deliver optimal results while accommodating individual preferences and lifestyles.

Definition of Invisalign® Terminology

With Invisalign® treatment, the patient will receive a series of aligner trays and swap out each one for the next one in the series every two weeks in order to gradually straighten the teeth.

ClinCheck® software allows professionals to map out the straightening process the patient’s teeth will go through with Invisalign® in great detail.

Incisal ridges are the portion of the crown of the tooth that makes up the incisal portion and can be a direct cause of overbite if they are extended too far.

Malocclusion is the condition in which the upper and lower teeth do not meet properly when the bite is closed. Conditions of malocclusion can include overbite, underbite, crossbite and open bite; all of which are treatable with Invisalign®.

Smart Track® Material

Smart Track® material is in Invisalign® aligners to increase comfort, improve control of movement, increases the speed of treatment and applies a gentle force to the teeth over time.

Vivera® retainers are a type of retainer that consists of clear plastic material and helps to maintain orthodontic corrections after a treatment.

The blue compliance indicator is a small blue dot on the aligners that will fade from blue to clear in order to indicate if the patient is wearing the aligner for the proper amount of time and where the patient is in the Invisalign® process.

The gum line is the line in the mouth where the teeth and gums meet. If a patient struggles with gum recession, then the gum tissue around the teeth may begin to wear away.

An iTero Element® scanner allows professionals to create a 3D image of the patient’s teeth in minutes and predict what it will take to move the teeth into proper alignment.

An overbite is a type of malocclusion that occurs when the upper teeth jut out over the lower teeth, covering them and causing other issues.

SmartForce attachments are small attachments that professionals place on the patient’s teeth before placing aligners to help move the teeth.

Smile-Scan analyzes the way a patient smiles by measuring the position of the mouth and eyes before giving a score.
