Braces are one of the most popular dental treatments available today. Why? Because in addition to creating a more attractive smile, braces can prevent other problems like misaligned bites, TMJ disorder, tooth decay, and gum disease. While traditional braces are a great option for many people, we also offer metal-free alternatives. Dr. Pearce is certified to provide our Rocklin-area patients with Invisalign, the trusted name in invisible aligner technology.
You’ve probably seen ads for Invisalign on television or in magazines. Clear braces have grown in popularity over the years as the technology improves. Now, Dr. Pearce can correct a wide range of issues using this discreet method of orthodontia. Patients with crooked teeth, wide gaps, and bite problems can benefit from treatment with Invisalign.
This method uses clear, removable aligners to gently reposition the teeth. You use an aligner for about two weeks, and then you throw it away and move on to the next in your series. No more wires, no more brackets, and no more uncomfortable “tightening” appointments. With Invisalign, you have the freedom to remove your braces when you eat and brush, too, so oral hygiene remains stellar, and staining during treatment is less likely to occur.
You can learn more about Invisalign by calling Dr. Pearce for a consultation. While clear braces aren’t for everyone, they can provide many adults with a solution to crooked teeth that doesn’t jeopardize their mature image. Dr. Pearce will help you decide whether Invisalign is right for you at your personal consultation.
