If you are looking for a way to improve your smile, but are not keen on wearing traditional metal braces, then clear aligners may be for you! This treatment involves the use of a system of clear, removable aligners that are used to straighten the teeth over time. With this easy and comfortable treatment, you can achieve the smile of your dreams!

What are Clear Aligners? 

Clear aligners are a great alternative to traditional metal braces and are specifically designed to gently move the teeth into their proper position. These aligners are made out of a strong plastic and are made to fit each individual patient’s mouth. If a series of clear aligners are needed, each aligner will gradually move the teeth until the desired results are achieved.

When using clear aligners, patients should wear them for at least 20-22 hours per day to see the best possible results. Each aligner will be worn for one to two weeks before being changed out for a new one. The exact length of treatment will vary and will depend upon the amount of change desired in each case. Usually, aligner treatments can be as short as three months, or as long as eighteen months.

Who is a Candidate for Clear Aligners? 

For individuals who are looking to achieve a straighter smile and do not want to wear traditional braces, clear aligners are a great alternative! These aligners are also great for those who have had previous orthodontic treatments but now want to make minor corrections to their smile. The many advantages to using clear aligners include:

  • Easier to keep clean. 
  • Are removable so they are easy eat, drink, brush, and floss. 
  • Are comfortable and are less likely to cause irritation to the cheeks and gums. 
  • Can prevent tooth wear from grinding at night.
