Orthodontic appliances have advanced through the years and are now much more comfortable. Clear Aligners are among the most recent innovations in the field of orthodontics and are significantly better than traditional braces.
Clear aligners are transparent and removable dental aligners that are used to straighten misaligned teeth. These aligners are designed and manufactured to comfortably fit the teeth and gradually move them into position.
At our practice, we offer Clear Aligners to patients who are looking for an alternative to traditional metal braces.
How Do Clear Aligners Work?
Clear Aligners work by gradually correcting the position of misaligned teeth. Patients undergoing treatment with Clear Aligners must replace their aligners every two weeks as the treatment progresses and wear them for 20-22 hours each day. Clear Aligners are customized to suit each patient’s needs and manufactured based on precise scans, with the help of 3D technology.
What Are Clear Aligners Recommended For?
Crowded and crooked teeth are bound to affect the beauty of your smile. Clear Aligners are innovative dental appliances designed to correct all the major types of dental malocclusions.
Here are some of the dental issues Clear Aligners can correct:
Gaps: Unwanted gaps between the teeth can certainly affect your smile. Clear Aligners close the gaps between teeth that are far apart.
Crowding: Crowding is the result of teeth that are growing too close to each other. Crowded teeth will make it difficult to brush and floss leading to dental cavities.
Improper bite: An improper bite is the result of misaligned teeth. Clear Aligners can correct issues like overbite, underbite, and crossbite.
What Are the Advantages of Clear Aligners?
The many advantages Clear Aligners provide are the reasons why most patients opt for this type of orthodontic treatment. These comfortable aligners have proven to gracefully address the concerns of patients who would otherwise find it difficult to wear braces.
Here are some of the main reasons why we recommend Clear Aligners:
- These aligners, as the name suggests, are clear. The transparent material these aligners are made from makes them a better alternative to conventional braces as they are less obvious. This encourages patients to wear them with confidence and continue treatment without hesitation.
- Clear Aligners are removable. This makes it easier to brush and floss during treatment. In addition, patients do not have to make any sacrifices on their diet.
- As these aligners are not made from metal, they are much more comfortable to wear than traditional braces. The smooth texture of Clear Aligners will not cause pain or irritate the tissues of the mouth.
- With Clear Aligners, patients have to visit the dentist less often than if they were wearing braces.
