Clear Braces

Straighten Your Teeth Without Traditional Braces

Invisalign and 3M Clarity Clear Aligners at The Exchange Dental Group

The Exchange Dental Group offers Invisalign and 3M Clarity clear aligners as an excellent alternative to metal braces for many patients. These custom-made, virtually invisible braces gradually straighten teeth, providing a convenient and flexible treatment option. Because the aligners can be removed for meals and oral hygiene, you can enjoy a seamless orthodontic experience without having to worry about complicated flossing or a banned foods list. Experience the benefits of clear aligners and achieve the confident smile you’ve always wanted.

Benefits of Clear Braces

Clear braces improve the lives of patients in numerous ways, including:

  • Improved Confidence. Clear braces offer a significant boost in self-confidence. Because the aligners are virtually invisible when worn, patients can smile and speak without feeling self-conscious about their orthodontic treatment. 
  • Ease of Use. Metal braces cannot compete with clear braces for convenience and ease of use. There are no brackets and wires that require adjustments. Clear aligners can simply pop in and out whenever you’re eating or brushing and flossing your teeth. 
  • Discreetness. The low-profile aligners allow patients to undergo treatment without feeling self-conscious or embarrassed at work or in social situations, which can be particularly beneficial for adults in careers where appearance is key.
  • Comfort Level. Invisalign and 3M Clarity clear aligners are made from smooth, comfortable materials that won’t rub or poke your gums and cheeks the way brackets and wires often do. 
  • Shorter Treatment Duration. In some cases, invisible braces can achieve results more quickly than traditional braces. 
  • Personalized Treatment. This technology allows for precise mapping of the teeth movement, ensuring efficient and effective treatment outcomes.

How Do Clear Braces Work?

Here is a general overview of how the clear braces process works:

  1. The journey begins with an initial consultation at our dental practice. During this visit, our experienced dental team will evaluate your oral health, discuss your concerns and treatment goals, and determine if clear braces are the right option for you.
  2. Using advanced digital imaging technology, we will create a custom treatment plan tailored to your teeth. This plan will outline the projected movement of your teeth and the estimated duration of the treatment.
  3. A series of clear aligners will be fabricated specifically for you. Each set of aligners represents a different stage of your treatment.
  4. Once your clear aligners are ready, you will return to our office to receive them. We will ensure that the aligners fit comfortably and provide you with detailed instructions on how to wear and care for them. 
  5. Throughout your treatment, you will have regular check-up appointments at our practice.
  6. As you progress through your aligner series, you will switch to new sets of aligners at designated intervals. Each new set will continue to guide your teeth closer to their final positions.
  7. Once you have worn all the aligners in your series and your teeth have achieved their desired positions, the clear braces process is complete! 
  8. To keep your smile in its properly aligned position, we will provide you with retainers to be worn as directed, usually at night.

Which Clear Aligner Do I Choose? 


Invisalign vs. 3M Clarity

Ultimately, the choice between Invisalign and 3M Clarity clear aligners depends on individual preferences, treatment goals, and the dentist’s recommendations. Our experienced team can guide you through the decision-making process, considering factors such as the complexity of your case, your desired level of discreet-ness, and your overall treatment objectives to determine the most suitable clear braces option for your unique needs.



Am I a Candidate for Invisible Braces?

Invisible braces can address a wide range of orthodontic cases, including mild to moderate bite issues, misalignments, and more. A consultation with our dental professionals will determine if you are a candidate for invisible braces based on your specific oral health needs.

Are Clear Aligners as Good as Braces?

While clear aligners are comfortable, convenient, and discreet, their suitability depends on the complexity of your case. Our dental professionals will assess your specific needs to determine if clear aligners are as good as braces for your particular orthodontic treatment.

How Old Do I Have to be to Get Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners are designed to address orthodontic issues for both teenagers and adults. For teenagers, it is important to have all permanent teeth erupt before beginning clear aligner treatment, which means the minimum age for clear aligners is typically around 12 to 14 years old. A consultation with our dental team is necessary to determine the appropriate age and readiness for clear aligner treatment.
