Invisalign

Invisalign™

Dr. Bassham became certified in Invisalign in 2001 and is a preferred provider of Invisalign.

Consider Invisalign to get the beautiful straight teeth you have always wanted without braces. A complimentary consultation can determine if Invisalign is right for you.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you are wearing. Invisalign uses a 3-D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More that 70% of orthodontist in the Unitied States and Canada are certified to treat with Invisalign.

Why would I want Invisalign?

Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removeable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor's office getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

How does Invisalign work?

You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move. Little by little and week by week the teeth move into their final positions. You will visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18-30, but both will vary case to case.

Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces you have the option of changing colored elastics or rubberbands each visit for a unique and colorful smile.

Self-Ligating Braces in Metal or Clear

We are very pleased to offer the Clarity™ SL Self-Ligating Appliance System, and the SmartClip™ Sl Self-Ligating Appliance System to all of our patients needing braces. Clarity Sl and Smartclip SL braces provide advanced and esthetic alternatives to traditional metal braces, allowing you to smile, even during orthodontic treatment!

Traditional Metal Braces

Clarity clear brackets are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and more brittle than their metal counterparts. For these reasons, ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.
