What are Clear Aligners?

As the name implies, clear aligners are an innovative and transparent alternative to traditional metal braces. This dental advancement works effectively in fixing the bite function and aesthetics of your smile in adults and teens. Clear aligners are subtle and comfortable, and they work to straighten your teeth while preserving the natural aesthetics of your smile for the full duration of the process. Our clear plastic aligners aren't intrusive and are easily removable, allowing you to continue eating the foods you love with minimal lifestyle modifications.

Our practice offers several clear braces options, including the popular Invisalign® and SureSmile® clear aligners. Our dentists will consult with you to determine which product best fits your unique oral situation and budget. We will explain to you what to expect during the full treatment process, generally lasting between 12 to 18 months. However, treatment time can vary based on the severity of the situation.

Benefits of Clear Aligners

Because of the innovative nature of clear aligners, you can expect to experience many benefits while undergoing treatment. Some of the benefits that patients generally experience with clear aligners include:

  • Improved comfort
  • No mandatory change in diet
  • Fewer dental checkups
  • Improved aesthetics
  • Easily removable
  • Simpler cleaning regiment

The Process Tailored to Your Unique Smile

We will begin treatment with a thorough assessment of your dental health to ensure clear aligners are the right solutions for you. Once we've determined you're a good candidate, we will take detailed digital impressions of your oral structure to gain insight into the nuances of your unique situation. Our team sends these impressions to an outside trusted lab, where they will craft and customize your aligners to fit securely and naturally onto your teeth while also delivering optimal results.

Once the tray has been completed and you retrieve it from our office, our team will clearly explain the proper guidelines for wearing the aligners and how you can achieve the best results possible. After a few weeks, you will return, and we can assess your progress and make any necessary adjustments. Should you have any questions or concerns during your treatment, we are always ready and capable of helping in any way we can.

What Oral Health Issues Can Clear Aligners Fix?

Clear aligners are a safe and common treatment in modern orthodontic dentistry. Your custom trays are made to fit your smile comfortably and will apply slight pressure to gradually move your teeth into their desired location. You must change to the next aligner in your series when instructed by our dentist to help ensure the efficacy of the treatment. Some of the issues Invisalign can correct include:

  • Unwanted gaps
  • Crooked teeth
  • Underbites
  • Overbites
  • Crossbites
  • Open bites
  • Crowded teeth

Maintain Your Smile After Treatment with Clear Aligners

After receiving our treatment, you'll likely require a retainer to maintain your newly aligned bite. A retainer is crafted from the same or similar material as the trays you used during your treatment. This option will also be custom-made to fit your teeth and maintain your desired results. You will not need to wear your retainer as often as your aligner trays, so it's important to follow our dentist's instructions to prevent your bite from relapsing.
