Braces for Teeth That Are Practically Invisible
Get the smile you have always wanted at any age with our invisible braces for teeth from Invisalign. If you are embarrassed by the look of your smile, but feel you are too old to be wearing traditional bracing and bracketing, we have a solution you are sure to love. Our offices are equipped to provide you with Invisalign braces that are nearly impossible to detect. After a careful set of measurements and the creation of detailed casts of your teeth, our specialists create a set of clear aligners that you can wear during the course of your day.
This gradual process corrects the alignment of your teeth at a slower pace than traditional bracing, but the appearance is what makes a difference. If you are an active professional looking for a way to rebuild your smile without all the fuss involved with metal bracing, this gradual process is the answer. As your teeth are aligned, a new set of aligners is created to carry the process on to its completion. People will just assume that your teeth have always been this straight and magnificent once the aligners have done their job.
Dental Braces and Details for Care
Learn to live with your dental braces, and keep them working properly with the right approach to care. Our office team will supply you with the right type of toothbrush and toothpaste needed for proper braces care. It is important to keep the braces clean, so the health of your teeth and gums isn’t affected. Dr. Mack will educate you on the proper way to brush and floss while this orthodontic treatment is in progress. If you find a tooth feels loose, that is nothing to be worried about. In the event of a wire coming loose, the first thing to do is call our office for an adjustment.
You should avoid certain foods that may damage your braces or inhibit them from doing their job. The important thing is to ask any questions you may have. Our team is here to help you, and that is why we place a premium on communication and compassionate care.
How to Live with Dental Braces
If you play sports, it might be wise to obtain a mouth guard to make sure you don't harm your braces or your gums and lips while playing.

However, if the wires and bands on your braces are loose, contact us immediately. We have a number of different types of braces for you to choose from. Our orthodontist will work closely with you to determine which type works best for you. You have the following to choose from:
