Clear aligner therapy is a perfect option if you want to straighten your teeth for cosmetic or health reasons. As an alternative to conventional braces, clear dental aligners straighten your teeth invisibly and yield fantastic results. Since “seeing is believing,” please book an appointment with Family Dental Center in Manteca, California, to see what clear teeth straighteners can do for your smile.
Clear aligner therapies like Invisalign or ClearCorrect use transparent, BPA-free plastic trays to apply controlled pressure on your teeth for proper alignment. You wear clear aligners 20-22 hours daily — you should only remove them when eating or cleaning your teeth.
Clear teeth straighteners have made a tremendous impact in orthodontics. This teeth straightening system can be used to resolve numerous orthodontic issues, including:
While clear braces work for most dental issues, they may not be ideal for severe tooth rotation, intrusion, and extrusion cases. The best way to know whether invisible dental aligners are good for you is by booking a consultation with a dentist like Dr. Mircea Mitu.
Now that you have an idea of clear braces and are interested in learning what it takes to benefit from this treatment. Benefiting from adult braces is a fairly straightforward process. After booking a consultation, we evaluate your dental health to rule out cavities and gum disease.
If we establish you are a perfect candidate for adult braces, we digitally scan your mouth and send the images to sophisticated software that simulates your treatment. Through the 3D rendering of your mouth, we can see how and when your teeth will move from the start of the treatment to the end!
Next, we send your images to a lab technician to fabricate your aligners. Typically, you need a series of about 18-30 trays to complete your treatment. Each set is worn for about two weeks before swapping with another set. From the first set to the last, each set is designed to move your teeth closer and closer to their perfect alignment.
Imagine straightening your teeth without anyone noticing! This might seem far-fetched, but it’s possible, courtesy of clear aligner therapy. Clear aligners are nearly invisible, giving you a straighter smile without drawing unnecessary attention.
The other benefits of dental aligners include:
