Clearly Amazing Smiles

Norton Orthodontics is proud to offer Invisalign and 3M Clarity clear aligners at our Port Charlotte, Bonita Springs, and Cape Coral locations.

How Clear Aligners Work

Clear aligners from Norton Orthodontics are made from a transparent material that fits like a glove over your teeth. The aligners gradually shift your teeth into place. What's the cherry on top? Take them out as needed.

The Clear Aligner Process

At Norton Orthodontics, we use cutting-edge technology to ensure your aligners are a perfect fit for quick and ideal results.

Here’s the scoop:

  • First, we take photos and X-rays for a 3D look at your teeth and jaw. These X-rays help Dr. Norton craft your first set of custom-fit aligners. And just like that, your path to a straighter smile kicks off.
  • You'll usually go through 18 to 30 aligners for your treatment. Typically, you'll wear these clear aligners between 9 and 15 months, depending on what your smile needs.
  • Plan on keeping those aligners in for around 22 hours a day. But guess what? You can take them out for meals, brushing, or that special night out.
  • Regular appointments with Dr. Norton are a must. These visits track your progress and give you that extra excitement as you see your smile transform in just a few months!

Clear Aligners vs. Braces

Clear aligners and braces are great for straightening smiles, but there are some differences to remember when making your choice.

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners bring ease and subtlety to the table, something traditional braces can't. You'll need to take them out when eating or sipping anything other than water. But if that's a small change you can handle, you're on your way to a straighter smile.

Ideal for busy folks, clear aligners slide right into your bustling life. Keep that smile shining—brush before slipping the aligners back in. This keeps your teeth stain-free and your oral health at its best.

Traditional Braces

Traditional braces are the go-to for more complicated dental needs. They're always on, so there's no messing around during meals. But they're not as incognito and need more TLC during your daily dental care.

So, whether you go for the nearly invisible clear aligners or the dependable traditional braces, both have their pros. The best part? At Norton Orthodontics, Dr. Norton is skilled in both, ensuring your smile gets top-tier treatment.

Aligner Care 101

Clear aligners are comfortable and convenient, but they do need a bit of extra care. Here's how to maintain your treatment:

Wear your aligners for 22 hours daily for the best outcome. You can take them out to eat, brush, floss, and for special occasions. Their flexibility is a win for your busy life.

The best part? These aligners are nearly invisible. They're so well hidden that people won't even notice them. Plus, they're easy to clean, adding ease to your day.

Dr. Norton is an expert at crafting perfect aligner experiences at Norton Orthodontics. We're excited to make your orthodontic journey a breeze.
