Clear aligners are a great treatment option for patients who want to avoid the use of bulky and unsightly metal brackets and wires. During your initial consultation at our practice, our dentists will determine if you are a candidate for clear aligners.
Straightening your teeth with clear aligners is fairly simple. This treatment relies on a series of custom-made and computer generated plastic aligners. Each set of aligners is switched out every couple of weeks to gradually make small changes to the alignment of your teeth, eventually moving all your teeth into their proper positions. In addition to being very discreet – nearly invisible, in fact – clear aligners are very comfortable. They are also removable, allowing you to eat, brush, and floss with ease.
Clear aligners can be used to treat the same type of orthodontic problems that are traditionally treated with braces, including:
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
- Malocclusion (bad bites)
We recommend that you clean your aligners frequently. As they are made from clear plastic, your aligners can cause your teeth to appear stained, yellowed, or gray if they are dirty.
We welcome you to call our practice today to learn more about clear aligners and schedule your consultation with our dentists.
