what is invisalign? what is clearcorrect? what is clear aligner therapy?


  • INVISALIGN AND CLEARCORRECT ARE ORTHODONTIC DEVICES THAT USE A SERIES OF CLEAR DENTAL ALIGNERS, ALSO CALLED "TRAYS", TO MOVE YOUR TEETH A LITTLE AT A TIME
  • INVISALIGN AND CLEARCORRECT SERVE AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO TRADITIONAL BRACES
  • INVISALIGN  AND CLEARCORRECT CAN TREAT A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT ORTHODONTIC PROBLEMS SUCH AS GAPS BETWEEN TEETH, OVERBITES, UNDERBITES, OPENBITES, CROWDING, AND CROSSBITES
  • INVISALIGN AND CLEARCORRECT ARE AN EXCELLENT CHOICE FOR TREATING TEETH THAT HAVE RELAPSED AFTER PREVIOUS ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT AND, OR NEED MINOR CORRECTION
  • INVISALIGN HAS BEEN ON THE MARKET SINCE 1999, AND CLEARCORRECT HAS BEEN IN USE SINCE 2006 
  • DR. ALVAREZ  WAS AN EARLY ADOPTER OF INVISALIGN, CERTIFIED IN 2003, AND HE WAS ONE OF THE FIRST DENTISTS CERTIFIED IN THE UNITED STATES ON THE USE OF CLEARCORRECT IN 2006
  • INVISALIGN IS MANUFACTURED IN MEXICO, AND CLEARCORRECT IS MANUFACTURED IN ROUND ROCK, TEXAS.


What is the process?


In order to fabricate the aligners, dr. alvarez will take a digital impression of your teeth, digital x-rays, and digital photographs of you. that information is then sent via the internet to either align technology, who makes invisalign, or to clearcorrect. a 3-d digital model will then be created, on which dr. alvarez will design your new smile. after a few weeks in production, the aligners will be shipped to our office. Each clear aligner, or "tray" is worn by a patient for 18-22 hours a day. trays are changed to a new tray every 2-3 weeks, depending on the system. Most orthodontic cases are completed in an average time of 12-14 months, and sometimes even less.


HOw do clear aligners compare to traditional braces? 


both traditional braces and invisalign or clearcorrect will give you virtually the same cosmetic results. clear aligner therapy can give you the beautiful, straight smile you have always wanted.


WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF DOING INVISALIGN OR CLEARCORRECT?


  • THE FIRST ADVANTAGE IS OBVIOUS, AND THAT IS THAT THE TRAYS ARE CLEAR,  AND VIRTUALLY INVISIBLE TO THE NAKED EYE. THEY  ARE MUCH MORE ATTRACTIVE AS COMPARED TO THE WIRES AND BRACKETS OF BRACES
  • YOU CAN TAKE THEM OFF WHEN YOU LIKE, FOR UP TO 6 HOURS A DAY, JUST IN CASE YOU HAVE A SPECIAL EVENT TO ATTEND
  • UNLIKE BRACES WHERE NUTS, SEEDS, AND OTHER FOODS CAN GET TRAPPED OR BREAK BRACKETS, WITH CLEAR ALIGNERS YOU CAN EAT WHAT YOU LIKE
  • YOU ARE ABLE TO FLOSS AND BRUSH WITHOUT SPECIAL TOOLS. YOUR MOUTH WILL BE CLEANER AND MORE HEALTHY
  • THERE ARE NO METAL WIRES OR BRACKETS TO CUT YOUR LIPS, CHEEKS, OR GUMS. COMFORT IS GREATLY IMPROVED.
