Orthodontic Options At Mayfield Dental Care
Invisalign (Clear Invisible Braces)
Invisalign is a series of clear, removable, plastic aligners. They are nearly impossible to detect when worn, as opposed to the metals in the traditional braces.
Each Invisalign tray is custom-made to your unique measurements and is worn for two weeks. The trays must be worn in the mouth for 20-22 hours a day and should never be removed unless you’re eating, brushing your teeth, or engaging in a sports activity.
The removable trays slowly move your crooked teeth place into place for straighter teeth alignment.

There are four main appliances in the metal braces, which you can use to move your teeth. Each type achieves the same result at the end of the procedure but some work faster, and some are more expensive.
We recommend setting up your child with an orthodontic evaluation as early as when they seven years old. The evaluation will show if they need orthodontic treatment or not and will help your dentist create an orthodontic plan for your child.
The different orthodontic treatments are then discussed afterwards. This is the time to ask your dentist anything that troubles you about the treatment. We encourage the optimum involvement of our patients for better communication.
