Invisalign – Clear Aligners

Most people associate clear aligners with the name Invisalign. Invisalign is a brand name for clear aligners. Other names include ClearCorrect, Smart Mover, and MTM Clear Aligners. These are all clear aligners. In order to be able to offer you the best prices while not sacrificing quality, we have decided to use ClearCorrect.

Dr. Oestervemb has been a ClearCorrect provider for several years and he looks forward to reviewing orthodontic treatment options with you.

Clear aligners are an alternative to traditional braces that straighten teeth with a system of clear removable trays. Each tray is custom made and gently pushes the teeth slowly into the correct position. This is the effect for many cases but we do not recommend it for everyone.

 

 

 

 

 

During a consultation for clear aligners:

  • We will treat you as an individual and customize our approach.
  • We will be happy to give you the pros and cons of the treatment.
  • We will go over the details of your case to determine what is the best option for your teeth.

We also offer conventional braces and short-term conventional braces cutting treatment time down to only 6 months.

How long do I have to wear my aligners for?

You have to wear your aligners for at least 20 hours each day and depending on the complexity of your case, you can expect a treatment time of 6 to 24 months.
