Does Your Smile Make You Happy?

 

The American Academy of Orthodontics found that more than one-third of American adults are unhappy with their smiles. At Foothills Dental we provide our patients with the highest quality of orthodontic care because smiling is one of the most important actions you can take.

Clear Aligners are a great choice for teeth straightening. They’re customizable, discreet, comfortable, and faster than traditional braces. Contact the Foothills team and book your first consultation appointment today!

Why is Smiling Important?

Smiling offers a variety of benefits because it helps our bodies release endorphins, including:

  • Reduced blood pressure
  • Strengthened immune system
  • Reduced pain and stress

We offer clear braces that give you an invisible way to gently move your teeth into alignment.  Not only do these braces offer a better esthetic, but the treatment time is usually shorter and the result is very similar to what you would achieve with traditional braces.

Invisalign and SureSmile Clear Braces

Invisalign and ClearCorrect clear braces both use custom aligners to straighten teeth. The aligners are clear trays made from smooth, translucent plastic and worn over your teeth.

Every couple of weeks, you will get a new set of aligners that will gently nudge your teeth into the proper position, based on the plan your dentist developed. Unlike traditional braces, there are no brackets or wires to adjust.

While the length of treatment time with traditional orthodontics can run as many as two or three years, invisible braces are often much quicker. Your dentist will determine how long you will need to wear the braces based on your treatment plan.

What Are the Benefits of Invisible Braces?

 

  • Made of smooth plastic, there is no chance of irritation in your mouth.
  • Fit easily into a variety of lifestyles.
  • See the result of your treatment as it is happening.
  • The result is almost exactly what you achieve with traditional braces.
  • Can brush and floss as normal.

I’m Busy! What is the Commitment of Clear Braces?

Treatment is usually shorter. While the length of treatment time with traditional orthodontics can run as many as two or three years, invisible braces are often much quicker. Your dentist will determine how long you will need to wear the braces based on your treatment plan.

The clear aligners fit easily into a variety of lifestyles, from adult professionals to high school students. You will feel encouraged throughout the process because you can see the results happening.
