Did your dentist recommend braces to help with your bite or overcrowded teeth? Do you want to improve your smile but don’t want to wear a mouth full of metal? Adults and teens are now able to take advantage of a comfortable and discrete orthodontic treatment that doesn’t require metal wires and brackets. Clear aligners gradually shift your teeth into a straighter, better position to give you the smile of your dreams.
Clear aligners are used to treat the following issues:
- Overcrowded teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Open bite
- Crossed bite
What are Clear Aligners? A series of clear plastic trays, customized to you, that shift your teeth into place. Treatment time will depend on your particular needs, and you’ll be able to see the difference in your teeth as you progress. While patients love that clear aligners are barely noticeable, there are several other benefits they offer:
- Total Convenience – You can take clear aligner trays in and out as needed for eating and brushing your teeth. The aligners themselves can also be cleaned to keep them in good condition.
- Complete Comfort – Clear aligners are smooth and comfortable to wear. There is no metal to poke the inside of your mouth or gums. This also makes playing sports safer — you can take out the aligner trays and wear a mouthguard to protect your teeth.
- Hassle-Free Treatment – With clear aligners, you’ll need to visit our office occasionally to make sure your treatment is progressing according to plan, but there is no need for painful adjustments as with conventional braces.
