What Are Clear Braces?
At Prestige Family Dentistry, Dr. Melika Kashkouli offers a comfortable and nearly invisible braces option for her patients with mild to moderate misalignment: Invisalign and ClearCorrect. Theses teeth-straightening systems uses clear aligners that are made out of nearly invisible plastic and, unlike traditional braces, can be inserted and removed for special occasions, eating, and your daily cleaning routines. The aligners are BPA free and so smooth that they don’t irritate your cheeks and gums.
The Treatment Process
Your clear brace treatment begins with a consultation with Dr. Melika Kashkouli. She will analyze your bite and discuss your dental goals with you. Once a solution has been determined, Dr. Melika Kashkouli will:
- Take x-rays and impressions of your teeth to create a digital image
- Map the movements of your teeth from their current position to the final desired position and review that with you
- Have custom-made clear aligners created specifically for you, to wear through the day
- Monitor your progress and have you change aligners every two weeks, advancing you to the next stage of your treatment
As you move from one aligner to the next (approximately every two weeks), your teeth will gradually shift until they reach their final, improved position.
