Benefits of Clear Aligner Therapy
Clear aligners are a great choice for our patients who are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment option. Rather than using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, the Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten your smile. Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of the teeth. As you switch sets of aligners about every two weeks, your teeth will be gradually and gently guided to their ideal positions. You will also visit our office on a regular basis during treatment to make certain that your smile is progressing as planned.
What Dental Issues Can Clear Aligners Fix?
In general, clear aligners can be used to treat the same orthodontic issues that are normally treated with traditional braces.
Our team may recommend them to correct:
- Crowded teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
- Overbite, open bite, underbite, or crossbite
During your initial visit, we will determine whether you are a good candidate for clear aligner therapy. This treatment is often a good choice for adult patients and others who are interested in a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. In addition to being discreet, clear aligners are also very comfortable because they are custom made from smooth, thin plastic. The aligners are removable as well, which allows you to easily remove them as needed in order to eat, brush, and floss.
