Show Off Your Beautiful Smile

If you hide your smile because of crooked or crowded teeth, treatment with clear aligners is comfortable, efficient, and won’t affect your appearance.

We Offer Solutions for a Straighter Smile

Straighter Smiles in Fredericksburg

If you’ve ever considered having your teeth straightened but were put off by the prospect of years of orthodontic treatment, clear aligners may be a better option for you. Clear aligners are an innovative, discreet way to straighten teeth without the need for bracket and wire braces that can mar your smile.

At Blue Bird Dentistry, we offer Invisalign and ClearCorrect aligners because they provide many advantages. One that our busy adult patients appreciate is that the length of treatment is shorter with clear aligners than bracket and wire braces. Treatment times vary depending on your individual needs, but we can often achieve the desired results in as little as 12 to 15 months.

How Do Invisalign and ClearCorrect Work?

Dr. Elnahass starts by taking digital 3-D images of your entire jaw. He uses this information to map out a treatment plan that predicts the movement of your teeth throughout the process. The exciting part is that you will be able to see a virtual representation of how your teeth will move during each stage of treatment.

Both Invisalign and ClearCorrect systems consist of a series of crystal-clear plastic aligners that are designed to move your teeth into the proper position sequentially. When treatment begins, you will be instructed to wear each set of customized aligners for approximately two weeks, then graduate to the next set of aligners. You will repeat this process until you have used all your aligners and treatment is finished.

It’s important to remember that wearing your retainer after treatment as instructed by Dr. Elnahass is the only way to maintain the results you have worked so hard to achieve.

What Are the Benefits of Clear Aligners?

ClearCorrect and Invisalign offer many advantages over bracket-and-wire orthodontics:

  • The clear plastic aligners are virtually invisible
  • The smooth surface of Invisalign aligners does not irritate the cheek or gums
  • Oral hygiene is more efficient because the aligners can be removed for brushing and flossing
  • Aligners can be removed during sports to accommodate a protective mouth guard

Keep in mind is that you must wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day as instructed to see the fastest results in the shortest amount of time.

What Problems Do Clear Aligners Correct?

Clear aligners correct many of the same problems as traditional bracket-and wire braces, such as:

  • Mild to moderate alignment issues
  • Wide or uneven gaps or spaces between teeth
  • Crowded or overlapping teeth
  • Overbites, underbites, and crossbites

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

For years, people have associated orthodontics with uncomfortable metal brackets and wires that mar their appearance. It’s understandable that an adult in need of orthodontics would be hesitant about facing years of treatment with cumbersome metal braces.

Introducing Invisalign

However, at Blue Bird Dentistry, we offer Invisalign clear braces, a progressive orthodontic treatment system that can be used to correct mild to moderate tooth misalignment in as little as a year. More adults than ever are choosing Invisalign because of the dramatic results that it achieves in a short period of time.

Most importantly, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, a significant benefit for adults who are concerned about their appearance during social and business interactions.

Unlike traditional orthodontics, you can remove Invisalign aligner trays for eating, brushing, and flossing. Another significant benefit that many of our patients appreciate is that Invisalign trays are made of a smooth, comfortable plastic material that will not chafe and irritate the tender tissue inside your mouth.
