Clear Aligner Ortho
Orthodontic aligners are made of clear, strong medical grade plastic that is virtually invisible when worn. Aligners look similar to tooth-whitening trays but are custom-made to fit better, while moving teeth. 3D computer imaging technology depicts the complete Orthodontic treatment plan from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position, with a series of custom-made clear aligners. Each aligner moves the teeth incrementally and is worn for about two weeks, then is replaced by the next set of aligners in the series until the final position is achieved. It’s an amazing way to have a six-month beautiful Smile.
Clear aligners are an alternative to traditional braces and are designed to help guide teeth into their proper position. Similar to braces, clear aligners use a gradual force to control tooth movement, but without metal wires or brackets. They are a good alternative for patients who want a straighter smile, but do not want to wear traditional braces. Additionally, aligners are beneficial for patients with Ortho Relapse (previous orthodontic treatment) who want to make minor corrections to their smile. There are several advantages to using clear aligners:
- Clear aligners are removable, so it is easier to brush and floss after meals
- Clear aligners are easier to keep clean
- Clear aligners are more comfortable and less likely to irritate the gums and cheeks
