Benefits of Clear Aligners

Here at 3rd South Dental in Salt Lake City, Utah, we offer Invisalign and ClearCorrect. Come in for a consultation with one of our dentists to find out what option is best for you. Technology is transitioning from traditional metal braces to Invisalign. With this change, many people have expressed concern that clear aligners do not do the same job. We are here to help you understand the benefits of clear aligners and help make your decision easier. 


One of the biggest advantages of clear aligners is that they are invisible! This means that it is difficult for anyone to know that you actually have braces. You can still show off your beautiful smile and not be afraid of the metal brackets getting in the way. 

Clear aligners are comfortable and removable. They are custom made to your mouth, making it feel like they are not even in your mouth. The aligners are removable, so you can still practice good oral hygiene. The types of foods you eat are not limited in fear of breaking off a metal bracket. 

As you progress through the treatment, new aligners will push your teeth into place. Because of this, you will spend less time at the dental office. Digital technology allows the aligners to be ready ahead of time to reduce wait time. There is no need to wait for change of brackets, wires, and elastics. All you have to worry about is a quick visit with the dentist to ensure you are on track with replacement aligners. 

The treatment of Invisalign or ClearCorrect will take less time than traditional braces. Your teeth can straighten in 6-12 months. Whereas metal braces can often take over a year to correct your teeth. The results of using clear aligners will be obvious and help you be more confident in your smile. 

Wear aligners for 22 hours to achieve the desired results. Only remove them when eating or brushing your teeth. Because they go in and out so often, it is likely that you will need to brush your teeth more often. This is to ensure no food is stuck in your teeth.
