Dental science is progressing at a high pace. The latest technologies, such as digital x-ray, laser dentistry, dental implants, intraoral camera, Zoom whitening, VELscope, etc., are clear examples of how technology is shaping dentistry. One such technology is Clear Aligners. These transparent aligners make up the best option for you if you do not want metal braces.
What Are Clear Aligners?
Clear Aligners are a teeth alignment system comprising transparent aligners used for orthodontic treatment. They are made up of almost invisible polyurethane plastic material. They fit snugly over your teeth and are difficult to notice. We use them to treat mild to moderate crowding and spacing.
You would require Clear Aligners if you have:
They are aesthetically pleasing
Most people shun the idea of getting orthodontic treatment because of unsightly braces. With Clear Aligners, you don’t have to worry about that because they are transparent and not very noticeable like brackets and wires. You can easily wear them for 22 hours.
You can remove them
Unlike metal braces that cannot be removed during the duration of the treatment, Clear Aligners are removable. You can remove these aligners while eating and drinking. Also, with these, it is easy for you to brush and floss your teeth regularly.
Fewer chances of problems
Breaking wires and falling brackets are the biggest issues with metal braces. You don’t have to deal with these issues with Clear Aligners. These clear braces are sans any bracket or wire. Hence, you don’t have to visit us to get these problems fixed.
You might need attachments
Although Clear Aligners does not involve using wires or rubbers, we might use attachments, depending on your case. We may place small ceramic buttons on your teeth to create extra pressure points. It will help move your teeth in the desired direction.
You may not require molds
We use 3D scanning to take the impression of your mouth, study the impression, and create the treatment plan. This is a benefit if you are not comfortable giving the impression of your mouth for mold preparation.
You will have to brush and floss after every meal
You can remove your aligners before eating or drinking something. But before wearing them, you need to brush and floss your teeth to ensure that food particles aren’t stuck between the aligners and your teeth.
The clear aligners are made through a combination of your orthodontist’s treatment plan and the impressions we take of your teeth. We customize each aligner with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place. You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before switching to the next set in your series. You’ll visit us every six weeks to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned. At our office, we offer both Candid, and Ortho FX Clear aligners to straighten our patients’ smiles. Our skilled dental team is committed to providing every patient with personalized care and effective treatment plans.
