Dental technology has exploded in the last decade or so, especially in the area of orthodontics. Clear aligner orthodontic treatments now allow you to straighten your teeth while also maintaining a natural appearance during treatment. Unlike traditional braces, clear aligners do not include the use of any metal brackets or wires. Instead, your aligners are made from smooth, clear plastic using specialized computer technology to provide you with a treatment that is discreet, comfortable adn effective. These incremental transparent aligners work to adjust the position of your teeth until they are in their ideal positions. Because the aligners are nearly invisible, no one can see how they are helping correct slight misalignments to leave you with a beautiful and healthy-looking smile.
Clear aligner orthodontics is surprisingly affordable, with results often appearing in less time than traditional braces, all without the less-than-attractive metal brackets. The typical timeframe of clear aligner orthodontics can be as little as 6 months, depending on your situation. The cost is also reduced, due to the material used. When you contact our office, Dr. Allen Daniels will explain the technology and determine whether it’s right for you.
Properly aligned teeth are not just for appearance. They are important to the health of your gums, as well as to help prevent more serious health problems from surfacing. Misaligned teeth can lead to jaw stress and unnecessary wear of the enamel, which can affect the health of your teeth and the supporting bone.
Some questions patients may ask about clear aligner orthodontic therapy include:
- How clear are the aligners?
- Are the aligners comfortable?
- How long do I have to wear the aligners daily?
