Dr. Hailee Rask offers a hybrid orthodontic treatment to align your teeth and improve your smile! Hybrid orthodontic treatment combines Invisalign® aligners with custom auxiliary appliances, such as clear braces, to move your teeth into their proper positions and help you achieve a healthier and more attractive smile. To find out more about hybrid orthodontic treatment in Salt Lake City, Utah, and schedule a consultation with our experienced orthodontist, please contact Bluebird Orthodontics today at 385-500-7082.

Dr. Rask typically recommends hybrid orthodontic treatment for more complex orthodontic problems, such as a severely bad bite where clear aligners alone will not be enough to fully correct the issue. By combining clear braces with clear aligners, we are able to provide you with a treatment that is both highly aesthetic and comprehensive to meet your smile goals.

Hybrid orthodontic treatment is a unique approach to straightening your teeth. It primarily uses Invisalign clear aligners but intersperses the use of aligners with short periods in which you will wear clear, cosmetic braces. These braces will work to align your teeth more effectively, speeding your treatment process and treating the malocclusions that your aligners cannot fully correct. You should only need to wear clear braces for a short time, usually at the beginning or end of your clear aligner treatment. In some cases, the braces may only be required on a few teeth rather than the entire dental arch.

Benefits of hybrid orthodontic treatment include:

  • Reduced overall treatment time
  • Less time wearing braces
  • Reduced overall cost of your orthodontic treatment
  • Clear, removable aligners that offer maximum comfort and convenience
  • Invisalign aligners, which allow you to maintain better oral hygiene during treatment
  • Reduced risk of emergency visits for problems with braces
