San Antonio Invisalign: The Clear Alternative to Braces

At the office of Dr. Roy Gonzalez, Jr., we provide quality orthodontic treatment to patients of all ages in San Antonio and the surrounding areas. Whether your child is in need of early treatment or you want to improve your own smile with adult treatment, we’re sure to have the ideal orthodontic solution for everyone in your family!

We understand that not everyone wants to wear metal braces or clear braces that are cemented to the teeth. Adults and children with certain orthodontic problems may also be treated with clear aligners. That’s why our office is a certified provider of Invisalign and ClearCorrect Aligners. Clear aligners offer a clear, convenient, and comfortable way to straighten teeth. 

What are ClearCorrect Aligners?

Woman Putting In Invisalign TraysWhile metal braces are time-tested and proven to be an effective way to straighten teeth, Invisalign treatment has grown in popularity. Our ClearCorrect Aligners are virtually the same as Invisalign, however, our clear aligners fit more comfortably in the mouth because unlike Invisalign, they go up past the top of the tooth and cover the gum margin, which allows for better movement. Our clear aligners are also made in America with 3D printing, so they are more clear than Invisalign. Instead of using metal bands, brackets, and wires to move teeth, tooth movement is accomplished using the clear aligners that are completely removable.

How Clear Aligners Work

Utilizing specialized computer software, Dr. Gonzalez will work on creating a plan for moving your teeth into their best possible alignment. Once the treatment plan is created, a series of clear aligners will be made just for you. You’ll begin by wearing the first set of aligners for a period of about two weeks, making sure to keep them in your mouth for 22 hours each day. You’ll then move onto the next set of aligners in the series until you’ve used all the aligners, leaving you with a new and improved smile!

We Have Clear Aligners for Teens!

For our patients in need of adolescent treatment, we offer Invisalign teen in San Antonio, which is a clear alternative to regular braces. This is the teenage version of Invisalign that comes with a couple of extra features designed specifically to meet the unique needs of teenagers. For instance, the aligners have tiny fading blue dots on them that tell the wearer when it’s time to change aligners. Our clear aligners also come with special “eruption tabs” that hold space open for any adult teeth that have not yet emerged through the gums. 

Clear Aligner Benefits

Adults and teens who choose ClearCorrect Aligners to improve their smiles can enjoy the following benefits:

  • A Discreet Look: The clear aligners are hardly visible when worn on the teeth, making this treatment very discreet.
  • No Food Restrictions: Since the aligners are meant to be removed when eating, there are never any food restrictions to worry about, like what’s common with regular braces. You can eat all your favorite foods for the entire time you’re in treatment including hard, sticky, and gooey foods.
  • Added Comfort: The smooth 3D plastic material the aligners are made of are more comfortable than metal braces  that can poke and irritate your lips and cheeks.
  • Protection Against Teeth Grinding: If you have a habit of grinding your teeth at night, the aligners can act as night guards to protect your teeth from getting worn down.
