Are There Invisible Orthodontic Options?

Invisible OrthodonticLa Habra/Chino Hills, CA – When it comes to straightening your smile, there are more options than ever before. But for many, especially adults and older teens, you may want more a more discreet option to get the smile of your dreams. Gire Orthodontics offers several cosmetically pleasing orthodontic treatment options.

“At Gire Orthodontics we offer a host of treatment options because we know treatment cannot be a ‘one-size-fits-all’ option,” says Dr. Robert Gire. “Every treatment plan is customized based on the patient’s individual needs and we have a few different options that are as discreet as possible.”

Clear aligners are a great and effective alternative to traditional braces. A system of clear, removable trays works to straighten teeth by gently guiding them to their proper locations. Every set of aligners is custom-made for the patient out of a durable plastic material that is virtually invisible. Aligners are worn for at least 22 hours each day and changed out for a new set approximately every 7 to 14 days. Aligners can be removed to eat, drink, brush, and floss.

Traditional metal braces are still used today because they are generally more economical, however, we know not every patient wants to go with that particular route of treatment. Gire Orthodontics offers ICE brackets and Symetri Clear as an alternative.

They are made of a polycrstalline-alumina and feature the latest advancements in ceramic bracket technology for esthtetics and performance. They are comfortable and one of the strongest brackets available today.

Additionally, Dr. Gire offers Damon Clear 2 – a tie-less bracket system coupled with high tech archwires that move teeth faster than traditional braces. Damon Clear combines the reliability of metal braces with the most efficient technology available, resulting in comfortable treatment that takes less time. Damon Clear 2 braces are so discreet, people may not even realize you’re wearing them. Treatment times vary from case to case, but it is possible for overall treatment time to be reduced with this type of bracket system. Tie-less brackets mean no tightening appointments which means a more gentle experience. And without the need to change out elastic ties you won’t need to visit the orthodontist as often.

“Nearly one in five orthodontic patients today is an adult,” says Dr. Gire. “And we realize that for many of our patients, the last thing they want is to draw more attention to their mouths during treatment. We are pleased to offer so many nearly invisible options for our patients.”
