Learn About Invisalign Clear Braces Offered In Murray UT
You may be considering getting braces to straighten teeth and give you a fabulous smile. You may have even have friends who have tried several different braces systems. Most people know how traditional metal braces work–they have metal brackets and wires. The wires are tightened regularly and within what can sometimes be a rather lengthy period, they straighten teeth.
If you are wary of that traditional system, Dr. Clint Blackwood would like his Murray, Sandy and Salt Lake City neighbors to consider getting Invisalign clear braces to straighten teeth.
What is the Invisalign treatment and how does it work?
The Invisalign treatment is very simple. When you come into our Murray, UT office, Dr. Blackwood gathers information using the Invisalign treatment software. He sends that information to the Invisalign lab, where they make your Invisalign treatment clear braces aligner trays. The lab sends all the trays to your dentist at one time. Every two weeks, you swap out the old trays for new ones. The Invisalign treatment clear braces uses a gradual, consistent, progressive process to straighten teeth. Each new set of aligners has small but effective changes that progressively straighten teeth.
