The American Dental Association (ADA) has asked dentists to defer all elective treatment at this time, and only provide emergency services. This is to help preserve protective equipment (masks, gowns, gloves, etc.) for hospitals and urgent care centers as well as limit the spread of the virus. We are keeping a limited number of locations open to provide emergency dental services, to both help you and reduce the traffic to Emergency Rooms (ERs) and urgent care centers so that they can focus on non-dental emergencies. If you are in pain and need emergency dental treatment, please call (702) 744-8009 and we can assist you right away.

What Are Invisible Braces?

Invisible braces are made of clear, solid plastic and can have the same dramatic results for orthodontic patients as metal or ceramic braces. They are thin plastic trays that fit perfectly over your teeth to gradually correct the alignment of your smile. A great example of invisible braces is the increasingly popular brand, Invisalign®.

How Do Invisible Braces Work?

Rather than using brackets and metal wires, invisible braces correct dental alignment issues using a series of durable plastic trays that fit over the teeth. The plastic trays are able to gently guide the teeth to shift into a more optimal position. Every 4 to 6 weeks, the trays are updated to keep the patient’s progression on track until a successful result is achieved.

Because these plastic trays are not permanently installed in the mouth, they can be removed when eating or for routine dental hygiene. Also, patients are able to clean invisible braces easily by removing them and rinsing with water.

 

 

 

Benefits of Invisible Braces

Invisible braces are the least invasive orthodontic treatment offered. If you’re considering getting braces, you should speak to your Reno dentist to learn more about the benefits of invisible braces, including:

  • Almost completely unnoticeable
  • No permanent installation required
  • No food or drink restrictions
  • Easy to remove and clean
  • Less irritation to gums and tongue

The clear, durable plastic that makes up invisible braces does not need to be installed in the mouth the way metal braces do. This means invisible braces can be removed, cleaned easily, cause less irritation, and do not restrict a patient’s diet.

Special Considerations for Invisible Braces

Although invisible braces are an excellent option for many patients, they are not the best choice for everyone. Patients with more severe dental misalignments or major spacing issues may not benefit from invisible braces as much as they would from other orthodontic treatments. In this way, invisible braces are not as versatile.

Invisible braces also require a certain level of commitment from patients. Unlike traditional metal braces, invisible braces can be removed for eating and cleaning. You can remove the plastic trays for a short time, but they should not be left out for extended periods. This means you must replace the trays as soon as possible after eating or brushing your teeth and they must remain on while sleeping. If the patient fails to follow these instructions, the treatment will not be successful.

Consult with your Reno dentist to see if you are a good candidate for invisible braces. Our dental professionals will be able to evaluate your situation and see if invisible braces will be most beneficial for you.
