If you want to straighten your teeth or correct a bite problem, you have more orthodontic options than ever before. The current menu of orthodontic treatments requires a whole new glossary. Invisalign invisible braces are becoming a big thing  around Eagle River, Southern Alaska, and Anchorage.

Invisalign invisible braces are sometimes described as ‘braces behind the teeth’. These braces are just as effective at realigning adult teeth as the traditional ‘metal and wires’ kind but are almost completely hidden. Many adults and teens who straighten their teeth choose this type of orthodontia.

Invisalign invisible braces work great for many braces patients. To find out if invisible braces are the best type for your teeth, lifestyle and budget, schedule an orthodontic consultation at Excellence In Dentistry by calling (907) 349-0022. We can help you determine if this type of adults braces system is right for you and your smile.

Once an invisible braces patient has completed treatment, retainers must be worn regularly to keep the beautiful straight teeth in their corrected position. There are several types of retainers available for cosmetic dental patients. The time-tested Hawley retainer consists of a metal wire that surrounds the teeth and keeps them from shifting. The metal wire is attached to a molded acrylic form that fits snugly in the upper mouth (palate) or lower mouth.

Clear retainers are newer on the orthodontic scene. They cover the teeth like a see-through glove and do not need metal bows or clasps. Some retainer wearers believe clear retainers are more comfortable than Hawley retainers.

You don’t need to suffer with a mouth full of metal to get the beautiful teeth you are seeking. Let us help you develop a custom clear braces treatment plan for your smile.
