Clear Braces

These are most popular with adults and some teenagers because of their clear appearance.

These are a series of perfectly clear plastic coverings that are placed in over the teeth to move them a little at a time. The most popular of these is “Invisalign” but there are other companies that produce these aligners. As time has gone by, and our knowledge of how these clear aligners can be used, it is now possible to treat a wider variety of orthodontic problems than than in years past.
