Invisalign and Invisalign Teen
Invisalign offers an invisible way to straighten teeth. Results are accomplished little by little, week by week, until your teeth are straightened to the final position prescribed on your upper and/or lower arches. The Invisalign process uses advanced computer technology to finely calibrate a sequence of aligners for your teeth, which could mean as few as 10 or as many as 30 aligners.
Invisalign aligners are made through a combination of orthodontic expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology. Meanwhile, teen aligners include a compliance indicator to report the amount of time the aligners are worn. And what's more, aligners are removable so you can eat, drink, brush and floss your teeth while in treatment.
You'll wear each aligner for about two weeks, and as you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth gradually move into the final alignment. Visits to Dr. Stork are required approximately every ten to twelve weeks. The change to your smile is so seamless; you won't even realize what's happening.
The latest in leading edge orthodontic care, Damon braces allow your teeth to move more comfortably and easily than traditional braces. Dr. Stork will help you decide if Damon Brackets are right for you. But one thing is certain: thanks to these innovative new braces, you can achieve a perfect smile faster and easier than ever before possible.
Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.
Clear Ceramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material. They are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawback to ceramic brackets is that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.
The SmartClip appliance is a unique self-ligating passive bracket system that uses a specially designed clip in the bracket to hold the archwire in place. This technology creates less friction and results in greater comfort for the patient.
