Invisalign® and Invisible Braces
Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners. Though they are not totally invisible braces, the clear aligners appear nearly invisible compared to traditional braces — and are more comfortable. Using current 3D computer technology, each of your aligners is custom made for your teeth. This method gently and gradually moves your teeth until your treatment is complete and you have a beautiful, straight, healthy smile. We have completed specialty certification in Invisalign treatment and are among the leading practitioners in aligner treatment in Oklahoma.
The Invisalign process for teens is the same as the process for adults; however, the features of the aligners are enhanced. The teen aligners include a blue wear indicator that changes from blue to clear to help monitor wear time, and the aligners are designed to accommodate new teeth and molar growth. Plus, we include limited replacement aligners in case your teen loses or misplaces theirs. It’s important to know that not all teens are good candidates for aligners. Dr. Birdwell will help your family decide the best care option.
"Orthodontics" no longer means 'braces' to achieve a healthy, beautiful smile, thanks to the variety of technologies available.
Hidden braces, also known as invisible or lingual braces, are placed behind the teeth. This technique allows patients to enjoy truly invisible braces. Unlike traditional braces, hidden or invisible braces are customized to the shape of your teeth. If you are a good candidate for traditional braces, you are likely a good candidate for hidden braces. This technology is much more advanced today and allows treatment of more complicated malocclusions in a more aesthetic way.Click here to schedule your free-of-charge first exam.
