Though we won’t normally recommend clear braces for patients who don’t yet have all of their permanent teeth, it is a good option for many teenagers and adults. The clear braces Teen system even includes features specially designed for younger users. If you want a straighter smile but don’t like the idea of wearing metal braces for months or even years, clear braces is a great option for you. Instead of metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear plastic trays called aligners to gently shift your teeth into alignment.

I think Invisalign is great for all patients. I actually, personally, went through Invisalign myself. So I am a first-hand example. I had braces when I was younger. I had the works, actually. I had braces, and headgear, and everything else you could have. And then, like the classic teenager I was, I didn't wear my retainer. So, it was when I was in dental school, that I went through Invisalign. And it really changed my life, because what I do is teeth. So, I want to be proud of my smile every day, and because of Invisalign now I am. I think all patients can benefit from Invisalign, even if you've had braces before like I did, then you can just make those finishing tweaks, if maybe you didn't wear your retainer. And then, also, for people who never had braces, and their bite is great, but they want to make their smile really straight, Invisalign is perfect for you. Also, Invisalign is great for people getting ready for a big event; maybe a wedding, or reunion coming up. It's a perfect opportunity to really get that smile that you want to show off for your big event. Just a couple months, usually, we can start the process of getting you a really straight smile that you want to show off at your event. One of the greatest things about Invisalign is that you can really eat any of the foods that you like. And the process, unlike braces, that would maybe get the food stuck in your braces, and it would get caught in your braces, and embarrass you. Invisalign is very discreet, and you can just take them out, eat whatever you like. And then you just pop them back in. Also, included in Invisalign is whitening once you're done. So, we want to really give you a smile you're proud of. So, after you're done with the Invisalign, the teeth are nice and straight, then we'll, at no charge, include whitening trays so you can continue to whiten and keep that beautiful smile after that. Invisalign is a great option for adults just trying to get that smile that they've always wanted. It's a quick option, and it's easy, and mostly painless. And you can do it right here in our office, where you go for your dental cleanings. And Invisalign is a great way to get that smile you've always wanted.

One of the biggest benefits of clear braces is the lack of wires and metal brackets. The clear plastic aligners are practically invisible, and they’re more comfortable too!
Other benefits are:
- Easy to keep clean. Because you can remove your aligners, you can take them out before eating or drinking. No more getting food stuck in braces! And you can also remove your aligners to brush and floss your teeth.
- Not as many dentist visits. Invisalign usually requires fewer progress appointments than traditional metal braces do. We’ll likely see you for a quick checkup every four to six weeks.
- Shorter treatment time. The average Invisalign treatment time is about 12 months, versus 18 to 30 months for traditional metal braces.
Our Invisalign Experience & Technology
Not all clear brace providers are equal. Stonecreek Dental Care is the only general dentist office to have earned Invisalign’s Elite Preferred Provider status. It’s one of the highest levels of achievement recognized by Invisalign, indicating high levels of skill and expertise.
We also use a digital scanning technology called iTero. It helps our central Ohio orthodontist to create a clear braces treatment plan – and lets you preview your improved smile! Using iTero instead of putty to obtain impressions of your teeth is a bit like watching HDTV instead of standard TV!
