Clear Braces

A straight smile is healthier, more comfortable, and more attractive.

Let’s face it – many patients cannot imagine wearing brackets and wires for years on end, especially our adult patients. Traditional braces are a great way to straighten a misaligned smile but come with day-to-day complications that many of us would like to avoid.

Dr. Dastrup offers a solution. Invisalign clear braces provide results without the years of tolerating metal-adorned teeth. 

How Invisalign Works

A series of clear aligner trays gradually nudges your teeth into alignment. We take impressions of your teeth, and Dr. Dastrup determines their ideal positioning for your final results.

He will send your x-rays, models, and treatment plan to our Invisalign lab, which will return a series of clear aligner trays to effectively complete your orthodontic care.

How to Use Your Invisalign Trays

Once you receive your aligner trays, you should wear each set for approximately two weeks before moving on to the next set. Each set will bring your teeth closer to your ideal smile. Our patients find this method of straightening teeth easy and comfortable.

Your compliance will help your treatment move along quickly. Be sure to wear your aligners for 22 hours each day. You can remove them to eat, drink hot liquids, and clean your teeth. 

We will schedule regular maintenance appointments to ensure that your results are what we expect. Dr. Dastrup will make adjustments to your treatment if needed to make sure that your smile looks great and feels comfortable upon completion.

Benefits of Invisalign

Our patients love the convenience that Invisalign provides!

Since you can remove your trays, keeping your teeth and gums clean is a breeze. Just brush and floss normally and then replace your trays when you’re done. You will not need any special flossers or brushes.

Invisalign aligners are comfortable and completely smooth, so the inside of your cheeks will not become irritated with use. You can also avoid “tightening” appointments. Instead, you just change your aligner trays and the low-force pressure from their shape will achieve the same results.

No one will know you are wearing braces unless you tell them. Your trays are crystal clear and fit snugly, so you can speak normally while you wear them.

As with all orthodontic dentistry, a retainer will hold your new smile in place and keep it from shifting.

Treatment Time and Cost

The best way to learn whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign clear braces, how long your treatment will take, and what your treatment cost will be is to schedule an evaluation with Dr. Dastrup. He will be able to give you all the details you need to help you make a decision about Invisalign.
