What Are Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners, like Invisalign and Spark, allow patients like you to modify or correct your smile easily and more discreetly than metal braces.  You can feel confident with a nearly-invisible aligner.

These clear trays are made from a strong plastic material that fit snugly over your teeth. The trays gradually move your teeth until they reach the desired location. While metal braces require manual adjustments, moving on to the next phase of treatment with clear aligners simply requires you to switch trays. We have a few types of invisible aligners to choose from.

Worried about dental health during treatment?  These types of aligners allow you to pop them in and out easily to eat or brush.  (Our team also provides many helpful tips for keeping your smile and trays fresh and clean).

The Invisalign System uses a series of clear, removable trays called aligners to straighten teeth.  They are convenient for discreet treatment and pop out easily for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.

Spark Aligners

Spark Aligners are made out of TruGEN, which is designed to be clearer and experience minimal aligner staining.  The polished and scalloped edges provide a comfortable treatment experience, too.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners like Invisalign and Spark can inconspicuously spruce up or correct many different orthodontic challenges.  From gaps to crowding, overbites to underbites, Dr. Clifton can determine whether these invisible aligners are right for you.

Clear Aligners For Adults

Not sure you want to be saddled with metal mouth as a young (or young-at-heart) professional?  Invisalign and Spark Aligners can help you discreetly achieve noticeable results in no time.  And because you swap trays yourself, you likely won’t have to disrupt your work schedule as much for adjustments.

Clear Aligners For Teens

Is your teen worried about how they’ll play a woodwind instrument with braces?  Or how they’ll look for picture day?  Invisalign and Spark Aligners make orthodontic treatment easy and less disruptive to your kiddo’s social and extracurricular life.  As long as they wear them (and don’t lose them!), clear aligners could be a great option for treatment.
