Orthodontia is the branch of dentistry that treats any type of malocclusion. A malocclusion is when the teeth, lips, and/or jaws do not line up the way they should. As a result, your teeth may be crooked, your bite may not function correctly, and your jaws may look unbalanced.

At Clear Smiles Alaska, we provide patients with professional, experienced, affordable, friendly, and quality orthodontic care in Anchorage, AK. Dr. Sparaga has been practicing orthodontics for over 35 years and Invisalign exclusively for the last eight years. In fact, we no longer use metal braces to treat patients! If you have spaces, crowding, misalignment, an over or underbite, or have Temporomandibular Disorder and are in need of orthodontic care, we can help!

Invisalign invisibly straightens your teeth with a series of custom-molded aligners

Forget everything you have heard about teeth straightening. Now there is a breakthrough technology that allows you to get the smile you always wanted without bands, brackets, or wires.

Invisalign is clear and practically invisible, so nothing gets in the way of your new smile. No wonder Invisalign is the choice of over  3 million people! 

A clear alternative

By using a series of clear removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth right before your eyes. Change your aligners every two weeks, or one week with the AcceleDent System, and your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have moved to their final position. Aligners are comfortable and removable so you can eat, drink, brush, and floss as usual.

Orthodontic Treatment with Invisalign Alaska

Less treatment time

Typical treatment time with Invisalign takes about 6 months to 24 months. Depending on your progress, you will come in for appointments to see the doctor every two or three months. At each visit you will be given additional aligners to continue your treatment. Commonly, the number of aligners worn during treatment is between 12 and 48, but treatment time and the number of aligners will vary from person to person.

Invisible and unintrusive

Invisalign is a virtually invisible solution so you will not draw undue attention to your mouth while in treatment. In fact, it is so hard to tell when people are wearing aligners that it is likely no one will know you are in treatment unless you tell them!

Is Invisalign for me?

Invisalign can be used to treat the vast majority of common problems for adults and teens. Whether your smile needs minor improvements or more extensive adjustments, Invisalign can certainly help. It successfully treats over-crowded or widely-spaced teeth. It can also relieve more complex issues including overbites, underbites, and even crossbites. At Clear Smiles Alaska, we are also able to use Invisalign to treat TMD in conjunction with orthodontic treatment.
