CLEAR ALIGNERS: INVISALIGN AND 3M CLARITY
For teens who would rather avoid the visibility that comes with traditional metal braces, there is another option. At Minera Orthodontics, Invisalign® Teen and 3M Clarity Aligners are the most discreet form of smile correction available for teenagers in need of orthodontic care. The clear benefit of Invisalign® Teen and 3M Clarity Aligners is its near-invisible appearance.
Using 3D computer imaging technology and state of the art molding technology, the Invisalign and 3M systems provide patients with a series of clear plastic aligner trays that gradually adjust your teeth into proper alignment. The Invisalign and 3M trays are also removable, so it is simple to brush and floss normally during treatment. This can lead to improved dental health in the future.
“Invisalign Teen has been developed by teenagers, parents and leading orthodontists who understand the active lifestyles and unique treatment needs of teenage patients.”
Don’t let overbite and improper teeth alignment have a dramatic impact on your teen’s confidence. Don’t let overbite and improper teeth alignment have a dramatic impact on your teen’s confidence.
ADULT BRACES AT MINERA ORTHODONTICS
“It’s never too late for a beautiful smile!”
Adults who are considering smile correction, you may be thinking about the cosmetic improvements that accompany exceptional orthodontic care. However, aesthetic improvements are not the only advantage of quality orthodontic treatment with Minera Orthodontics. Improving the alignment of your teeth and jaw can significantly impact your oral health in a positive way.
Crooked teeth and misaligned bite are shown to contribute to gum loss, tooth decay, abnormal wearing of enamel, bone loss, and even the worsening of TMJ/TMD symptoms, like jaw and joint pain. Why risk so much trouble over a problem that can be corrected?
For adults seeking orthodontic treatment, this is good news! We are passionate about providing quality orthodontic treatment in a comfortable patient atmosphere. The advanced techniques and tools we utilize for orthodontic smile correction greatly reduce patient discomfort, decrease the frequency of doctor visits and shorten treatment time, while usually offering a variety of treatment options. At Minera Orthodontics, we give you options, because your comfort is our responsibility. A beautiful smile and good oral health will improve your well-being and self-confidence.
