Nearly Invisible Teeth Straightening

Clear Braces - Nearly Invisible Teeth Straightening for Durham Adults

Are you thinking about straightening your teeth? You may be able to skip those old-fangled metal braces, the bane of teenagers in an earlier era. Clear braces from Durham Dental Group make teeth straightening a whole new ballgame.

Unlike traditional metal braces, clear braces have no wires or brackets or rubber bands. Even better, they are almost undetectable – even to people standing just a few feet away from you.

The proper name for clear braces is “aligners.” They look a lot like an athlete’s mouth guard. You wear a series of them to put pressure on your teeth, which gradually brings them into alignment. Each aligner is worn for a week or two before you go to a new one. The new one changes the alignment slightly, and in time, you have an ideal bite.

Clear braces are so undetectable that some people call them invisible. Of course, they are not invisible, but they’re really close. They are made from clear plastic, which is what makes them so subtle.

One of the things that people like best about clear braces is that they are removable. You can take them out at mealtime, and when you brush your teeth at night. For the best results, however, they should be worn for at least twenty-two hours each day.

At Durham Dental Group we have clear braces from Invisalign. We also offer general and cosmetic dentistry services. Schedule an appointment today.

Dental Marvels: Implants in Durham

At least three million Americans have replaced a missing tooth with a dental implant, and that number just keeps growing. At Durham Dental Group, we are providers of these dental marvels.

Dental implants have been called one of the most important advances in dentistry, and it’s easy to see why. An implant is a titanium post that is surgically implanted into your jaw. An artificial tooth goes on top of the post. They look and function like natural teeth, and are therefore an excellent, long-term option.

One of the things that make dental implants so popular is that they blend in so easily with the patient’s remaining teeth. One of their great benefits, aside from functionality, is that they prevent bone recession, which is common in people who have lost teeth. The titanium post goes where the tooth root used to be, which strengthens the bone.

In some cases, implants can be used to anchor dentures, providing a much firmer, more secure fit. Many patients report newfound confidence in  themselves, after years of embarrassment caused by missing teeth.
