You may have reached a point in your life that you are ready to enjoy a straighter smile. But at the same time, you may not be interested the extra appointments the food restrictions, and extra brushing and flossing that come with regular braces. If that is the case, then you may want to find out more about clear aligners.

As the name implies, clear aligners are almost invisible to other people. They fit snugly against your teeth, and since they are clear, no one but you and the orthodontists will know that you are wearing them. They are comfortable to wear and easy to remove to eat or to clean them. Since you remove them before you eat, you can continue to enjoy your favorite foods while you straighten your teeth. They are perfect for active adults and teens.

If you decide that clear aligners are right for you, our orthodontists, Drs. Zachary Pitcher or Tyler Jolley will start by taking impressions of your teeth. Those impressions will be used to create a series of aligners. You will wear each set for approximately two weeks before switching to another set. As you wear them, your teeth will be moved into their optimum positions, with minimum impact on your lifestyle.

We are pleased to offer Invisalign® for our patients in Fruita, Colorado. If you would like to know if these are right for you, we’d be happy to see you at Jolley Smiles Orthodontics Fruita for a consultation. To schedule an appointment, please call 970-858-4446 today and we will get you on the track to a straighter smile with the help of clear aligners!
