Clear aligner treatment makes use of a number of removable, invisible, and comfortable aligners that make it possible for you to smile during and after treatment. Clear aligners are produced using effective 3D computer imaging technology.
Aside from the fact that the aligners are virtually invisible, they can also be removed, making it completely possible for you to eat and drink whatever you like while you are undergoing treatment. You can also floss and brush with no issues. Clear aligners also offer more comfort than traditional braces. The aligners have no wires or metal, which means that less time will be spent in the doctor’s office making adjustments. You will also be able to view your virtual Smile Plan at the beginning of treatment, so you can have a great idea of what your teeth will look like at the completion of your treatment to keep you motivated and on schedule!
Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks, with the patient taking them off only to floss, brush, eat, and drink. Your teeth moves little by little each week as each aligner is replaced with the next in the series until the desired level of straightening has been achieved. You will need to come in and visit us every six weeks so we can check the progress of your treatment. The treatment takes an average of 15 months, and you will wear between 18 and 30 aligners during this period.
