Have you ever wondered about seeing a dental professional straighten your teeth, then stopped in your tracks at the thought of metal braces? Since the most common and well-known way to treat crooked teeth is braces, many don’t know that there is another option. At Laurence Palmer DDS right here in Ogden, Utah, we care about your confidence and self-esteem while enhancing your smile. That’s why we offer Invisalign. 

If you have heard of Invisalign you have probably heard them being called “clear braces” and minus a few dental pieces, they are exactly that! For adults and teenagers that are conscientious about their smile or don’t want to have a mouth of metal in a professional work environment, Invisalign offers a discreet way to a new smile.

How it Works

Invisalign is a series of custom-made clear dental plastic aligners that slowly put pressure on your teeth moving them into place. Each set of aligners will be worn for two weeks then interchanged with a new set made to move them a little further. 

Working closely with the dentist, you will be able to discuss your desired outcome and how long you will wear it to achieve that outcome. With braces, an appointment to tighten the archwires is necessary to continue the movement, with Invisalign you are in charge of the interchanging and only come in if you need us. 

Invisalign Benefits

  • Invisalign is completely clear and makes it nearly impossible for people to tell you to have anything on your teeth. 
  • Aligners are to be worn 22 hours out of the day, meaning you can take them out to eat and perform at-home oral health care. With braces, you have to avoid certain foods, and cleaning teeth can be a challenge. 
  • They are minimally invasive and easy for any adult or teenager to use.
