The doctors and staff at Anchorage Orthodontic Associates of Anchorage, AK, have spent years providing state-of-the-art orthodontic services, and they know it's never pleasant to have to change your appearance in the interest of corrective treatment. If the thought of having traditional metal braces makes you want to forget straightening your teeth entirely, some of the alternatives will make those worries disappear on sight.
Clear brackets seem like the next logical step for those concerned with the look of braces, and while there is certainly a difference, truly amazing advancements have been made with another alternative: Invisalign clear braces. The customizable Invisalign mold is designed to fit your teeth specifically, and advancements in modern dentistry have greatly contributed to the development of these mouthguards that appear completely transparent.
Here's a quick breakdown of how it works:
- Evaluation: Start by getting an Invisalign smile assessment or directly visiting Anchorage Orthodontic Associates.
- Custom-Fitting: The doctors will then create a series of mouthguards designed around the molds of your teeth.
- Transition: Over time, those mouthguards are swapped out for new ones, until you're left with a nice, straight smile.
Invisalign is a fantastic alternative to traditional braces that's only improving with time. In addition to those and other custom-designed brackets, Anchorage Orthodontic Services provides growth modification appliances and temporary anchorage devices when appropriate. If you're interested in trying invisible braces out for yourself, recommending it to a friend, or are in need of any other orthodontic services, contact Anchorage Orthodontic Associates online or call them at (907) 349-1951 for more information.
