Clear aligners have become a highly sought-after orthodontic solution, providing a discreet and comfortable alternative to traditional metal braces. These aligners are particularly favored among teenagers and adults who desire a less conspicuous method for achieving their dream smile. When you come to our office for your initial consultation, our skilled dentist will assess your oral condition and discuss your smile goals with you to determine whether clear aligners are the ideal treatment for you.

One of the things that sets clear aligners apart is their construction from smooth, thin plastic. Your aligners are custom-designed using state-of-the-art computer and imaging technologies, ensuring they fit perfectly. These aligners are also removable, allowing you to maintain your oral hygiene routine to avoid cavities and other problems as well as enjoy all your favorite foods without restrictions. As your treatment progresses, our dentist will instruct you to switch to a new set of aligners every few weeks. Each set of aligners will make subtle adjustments to the positions of your teeth, gently guiding them towards their proper alignment.

To receive clear aligners, our dentist and team will take digital impressions of your smile to create a comfortable set to place over your upper and lower teeth. You will be required to wear your aligners as directed and will be switching them out for new sets as time goes by, gently guiding your teeth to their correct positions. During your visit, we will also share tips on how to care for your aligners so you have a successful treatment.

Clear aligners can treat all the same orthodontic issues as regular braces, including:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Open bits
  • Crossbites
  • Upper front teeth protrusion
  • Unmatched dental midlines
  • Crooked and crowded teeth

Please keep in mind that while your aligners are removable, you need to wear them as often as possible to achieve your new smile. We recommend that you wear your aligners 20-22 hours each day, and that you only remove them to brush, floss and eat. We also recommend that you clean your aligners regularly — your aligners are made from clear plastic, but if they are dirty, it could cause your teeth to appear yellow, gray or stained.
