Straighten Teeth Discreetly With Clear Aligners
Would you love to straighten your teeth but have held off on inquiring about treatment because you are not interested in wearing traditional metal braces? Long gone are the days of metal braces being your only option when wanting to straighten your teeth. Thanks to the constant improvements in dental technology and treatment development, clear aligners are the most popular way to straighten teeth.
What are Clear Aligners?
If you are unfamiliar, clear aligners are customized trays that slowly transition the teeth into the desired placement. The technology used allows patients to see the transition of their teeth with each tray, so they have an idea of what their teeth will look like following treatment. This also allows patients to have a better understanding of how the teeth need to move and the length of treatment.
Benefits of Clear Aligners
Not only can clear aligners improve the appearance of your teeth, but they can also improve your overall oral health. When teeth are crowded and crooked, it can be difficult to clean them properly, leading to tooth decay. When the placement of the teeth is not changed, the decay will continue to progress and reoccur, eventually leading to a dental crown or even a tooth extraction. When the placement of the teeth is corrected, the problems will improve when the teeth can be cleaned properly.
Patients love that the trays are removable. They are able to eat foods that they love with no restrictions. Patients also like being able to brush and floss their teeth as normal without having to clean around brackets and wires. The treatment time for clear aligners is typically less than traditional metal braces, and there are fewer in-office checkups required.
