SureSmile & Invisalign® Aligners in Alexandria, MN
Invisalign® and SureSmile are both orthodontic treatment options that feature completely clear, totally comfortable acrylic aligners. Each aligner is custom-made to shift teeth closer and closer to their final, ideal placement. Wear an aligner for two weeks, then move to the next set in your series.
How Often Do I Have to Wear My Clear Aligners?
One of the drawbacks to traditional braces is that they require constant wear. The brackets are actually cemented to teeth, and wires exert force 24/7 to pull teeth into alignment. With Invisalign® or SureSmile, small attachments may be used to help the aligners work more effectively. However, the aligners are completely free-moving, so you can take them in and out at your own discretion. To remain in compliance with your treatment plan, you’ll need to wear your aligners for 22 to 24 hours each day. You can remove them to eat a meal, attend a special event, and clean your teeth.
What are the Benefits of Removable Clear Aligners?
We understand that first impressions are important, for teenagers as well as adults. Braces and Invisalign® have become common interests for people who haven’t received the proper orthodontic care earlier in life. However, Invisalign® and SureSmile offer many distinct advantages over traditional braces, which appeal as beneficial to many patients. Both Invisalign® and SureSmile are clear options for straighter teeth that won’t hinder your appearance or limit your diet.
