What Are Clear Aligner Braces?

Clear aligner braces are custom trays that fit snugly over your teeth, placing pressure where needed to move them into alignment. The revolutionary orthodontic treatment option is highly effective at treating a range of mild to complex orthodontic cases, including gaps between teeth, improper spacing, misalignment, or crowding. Clear aligner therapy can also correct mild to moderate problems with the bite, including overbites, underbites, crossbites, and open bites.

What Are the Benefits of Clear Aligner braces?

Clear aligner braces continue to grow in popularity because of their numerous benefits. The virtually invisible orthodontic solution offers a discreet alternative to metal braces, allowing you to achieve a beautifully straight smile without people noticing. Moreover, your aligner trays are made of a smooth plastic material that's much more comfortable than wearing braces with their metal brackets and wires. 

Clear aligner therapy is convenient, straightening your teeth without impacting your life. The aligners are removable, allowing you to brush, floss, and clean your teeth as you normally would. Want to eat your favorite foods? Have a special event? Simply take your aligners out and wear them when you're done. 

Straightening your teeth using clear aligner braces will reduce your treatment time by up to 50 percent compared to traditional metal braces. Achieving straight teeth will make it easier to brush and floss effectively, enhancing your oral health and reducing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

What Should You Expect with the Clear Aligner Braces Process?

We'll start with a smile assessment to evaluate your unique needs. We will take digital scans of your mouth to map out your custom treatment plan and create your clear aligner trays. You'll even get to preview your expected results. 

When your aligners are ready, we'll explain the process to you. You'll need to wear your invisible braces for 20 to 22 hours a day for the best results. About every two weeks, you'll swap one set of aligners for the next in the series. We'll monitor your progress periodically during your course of treatment to ensure your smile stays on track. 

As your treatment progresses, you'll be amazed to see your teeth noticeably shift into alignment. Once you achieve the smile of your dreams, you'll need to wear custom retainers to ensure your teeth don't gradually move back to their original positions.
