We all know the importance of a beautiful smile. Over the years, as technology advances, we have found that one of the best new ways to achieve that is what we call clear aligners.
What are Clear Aligners?
Clear aligners are a new way of straightening your teeth without having to use any metal wires like with traditional braces. We correct your teeth by using a series of clear removable trays that are very comfortable. They're easy to use, and they're very effective.
In addition, they are less invasive compared to orthodontics and they are great because when you have them in most people can't even really tell that they're there.
How Clear Aligners Work
We can make your personalized series with our computer. Then you wear each one for about two weeks. Each tray moves your teeth approximately 1 1/2 millimeter. Each patient's treatment duration will vary, depending on how their teeth are positioned before the beginning of treatment. But, over a period of time, we can get your teeth into the desired position.
Am I a Candidates for Clear Aligners?
We have found that most of our patients who use clear aligners are patients didn't have the ability to get braces when they were younger, or they had braces and their teeth have since relapsed.
However, we are happy to have you in for a complimentary consultation to make sure you're a good candidate for our clear aligners because there are some qualifiers. First off, your teeth must be healthy. We would not be able to use clear aligners on unhealthy teeth as it may further any issues you may be having.
