What are clear aligners?
Clear aligner orthodontic treatments like Invisalign straighten your teeth using clear plastic trays rather than typical traditional metal brackets and wires. Patients wear the trays, which arrive from the dental laboratory that creates them in a series, one after another until the end of treatment. Each tray uses slight and carefully calculated pressure to slowly move the teeth little by little throughout treatment. The trays are comfortable and virtually invisible to those around you, making them much more subtle than traditional braces.
What makes clear aligners different?
Thanks to their materials, aligner trays do not stand out against your smile, meaning you can straighten your teeth without compromising your look. Additionally, aligner trays are removable and do not require any special treatment while eating or brushing your teeth. Simply remove your trays, go about your business and replace your trays afterward. While patients should wear their trays at least 22 hours a day, they are comfortable and subtle enough to blend right in with your smile and wearing them soon becomes second nature.
What do clear aligners treat?
Aligner tray treatments like Invisalign treat the same conditions as traditional braces, including:
- cross bite
- open bite
- misaligned teeth
- gapped teeth (under crowding)
- overlapped teeth (overcrowding)
Everyone’s smile and orthodontic issues are unique, so treatment times will differ from one person to another. The customized Invisalign treatment programs are specifically designed with the use of advanced orthodontic abilities to attain the most favorable outcomes in just a short time. The series of aligners are developed with advanced software to help ensure a perfect fit and deliver precise tooth movements necessary for excellent results.
What can clear aligners do for me?
Clear aligner tray orthodontic treatment can straighten your smile and correct your bite issues, in turn rejuvenating your look and helping you feel great about yourself. This boost in confidence and self-esteem helps everyday personal encounters become more enjoyable. Your new look will help you feel proud of your smile and light up every room you walk into. If you think you could benefit from orthodontic treatment, you should consult with your dentist to determine that clear aligner trays are your best option for correcting your smile.
