What are Clear Aligners?
If you are ready to make a change to your smile and straighten your teeth, we have the perfect treatment option. Gone are the days of traditional metal braces being the only treatment option available. We can treat our patients with the help of clear aligners. Clear aligners are just as their name implies, clear. They are clear plastic trays that fit snugly over your teeth to slowly transition them into the right place. You will wear each tray for a set period of time to keep the process moving. Many patients are fond of this treatment option and feel the trays are more comfortable than traditional braces. For most patients, treatment time is also shorter with clear aligners than with other options.
Benefits of Clear Aligners
One of the biggest worries many adults have when choosing to pursue orthodontic care as an adult is the appearance of their mouth. Clear aligners are an aesthetically pleasing option because they are virtually invisible. Clear aligners can also help improve the state of your oral health. One of the biggest issues with teeth that are not in the correct placement is recurring tooth decay and the development of gum disease. Food is continuously trapped between teeth, with some patients having difficulty using dental floss due to the placement of their teeth. Recurring decay leads to continuous treatments, not to mention the frequent added expense.
