Clear aligners are a wonderful alternative to traditional braces. It straightens your teeth without using brackets, wires or rubber bands. It is virtually an invisible treatment, so patients don’t have to feel embarrassed about their smile while getting treatment.
We use a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually move your teeth toward the desired smile you want. It is comfortable to wear and easy to live with. With the aligners being removable, you can easily take them off to eat all the same foods you normally enjoy. You can also easily brush and floss your teeth without the hassle of going under and over wires that are used with braces. Average treatment time is about a year and doctor visits are once every 2 to 4 weeks. The doctor checks your progression and gives you new aligners.
Whether you have minor teeth straightening issues or a moderate to severe condition, clear aligners are effective in treating all kinds of conditions, including the following:
- Crowding (not enough room for the teeth)
- Spacing (gaps between the teeth)
- Overbite (protruding upper teeth)
- Underbite (protruding lower teeth)
- Deep Bite (upper front teeth hiding lower teeth)
- Open Bite (vertical spacing between the front teeth)
