Types of Braces

Clear Aligners

invisalign-blog-photoInvisalign is the invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners. It has been proven effective in both clinical research and in practices nationwide. If your teeth are crowded, too far apart, or have shifted since wearing braces, you will have a new reason to smile.

The development of the next-generation high-technology Aligners uses 3D computer imaging to design and manufacture customized orthodontic aligners. As an alternative to conventional orthodonticinvisalign therapy, aligners are extremely comfortable to wear. A high level of detail in treatment planning and impression taking is necessary to ensure proper fit.

We will help determine what needs to be corrected. Impressions will be taken along with a personal profile of your mouth in order to analyze correctly your particular problems. Using advanced imaging technology, Dr. Irigoyen transforms your information into a highly accurate 3-D digital image. The sequence of orthodontic treatment from beginning to end is then created according to your treatment plan to simulate the desired course of tooth movement.

Clear Porcelain Braces

Clear porcelain braces are the alternative to metal braces. An attractive translucent appearance and comfortable design gives you all the self-confidence you need to face each day with a smile. You will be noticed but your braces will not. You will feel better about yourself knowing that the natural beauty of your teeth is shining through, and not your braces. Clear porcelain braces won’t stain or discolor. They will look as good the day they come off as they did the day we put them on.
