Welcome to the office of Dr. Clint Blackwood, your Invisalign dentist in Murray, Sandy and Salt Lake City!
Have you ever wanted straight teeth in a beautiful smile but were wary of traditional metal braces? We get it: metal braces can hurt when they’re tightened, take years to get results, and cut the gums and inside of the mouth of some patients. Some people even think they look unattractive.
What are Invisalign Clear Braces?
Metal braces were the only option for many years. Now, though, a clear braces system from Invisalign® can straighten your teeth without using any metal. The system uses a series of dental aligner trays to make small, consistent adjustments that straighten teeth.
We can swap out your trays every two weeks. However, we can instead give you a few sets of trays at once, which you can swap out yourself, saving you a trip to our office.
Advantages of Invisalign Clear Braces
Invisalign is a simple system that offers a lot of advantages, including:
- Invisibility: Your friends and acquaintances might not even notice you have Invisalign—even when you laugh.
- No Metal: There’s no metal that could cut or scar your gums or the inside of your mouth.
- Speed: Invisalign can often straighten our patients’ teeth faster than metal braces would.
- Less Pain: Invisalign uses gradual, consistent pressure to straighten teeth, avoiding the sharp pain some patients associate with the tightening of wires on metal braces.
- Convenient: Clear braces are good for young adults and older adults who want a system that works but doesn’t interrupt their normal activities.
- Easy Care: Unlike metal braces, Invisalign doesn’t get in the way when you’re cleaning your teeth. You just take out your trays when you brush and floss.
