At Richard Powell DDS, we offer clear alignment trays. The trays are custom fitted to the teeth, making them virtually unnoticeable when laughing, talking and eating with other people. Patients receive a sequence of trays, each of which is slightly different than the one before. The aligners provide a slight resistance to the teeth, forcing them to move into alignment over time. With this treatment option, adults and teens can achieve the smiles they’ve always wanted without feeling self-conscious about the mode of treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a candidate for Orthodontics?
If you have crooked or crowded teeth that are embarrassing to you or otherwise preventing you from achieving optimal oral health, this option could be the solution for you. Visit your us for a complete consultation to find out if you could benefit from clear orthodontics.
What should I expect during my treatment?
Clear alignment treatments are different for everyone, but most patients can achieve their ideal smiles within one to two years. During that time, you can expect to make occasional dental visits to monitor your progress.
Will I need any post-treatment care?
Following your treatment, you will no longer need to wear Invisalign® trays. However, you will need to wear a retainer each day to help protect your new smile. It is also important to continue visiting your dentist for routine check-ups and twice-yearly cleaning.
