Poorly aligned teeth can hurt your confidence in the way you look and even impact your oral health. Traditional metal braces can help with this, but many find themselves reluctant to commit to conspicuous aligners that have to be fixed in place. As an alternative, we can recommend that you use Orthodontic Clear Aligners to make changes to the positioning of your teeth.
Orthodontic Clear Aligners are custom-made appliances that discreetly move teeth into more attractive positions. An initial smile evaluation helps us determine how they should be shaped and sized and gives us the information needed to plan the course of your adjustment. You will receive a set of clear aligners, and each one will represent a step in your overall correction.
You will wear each designated aligner throughout the day for a period of just a few weeks. All of them are made with a clear plastic that makes them hard to see, and each will prove easy for you to remove on your own. Their use helps with gaps, awkward overlaps between teeth, and general alignment issues that make your smile uneven. Because they can be removed, patients who undergo this work have fewer issues with maintaining good oral hygiene and with enjoying their regular diet.
An alternative to metal braces will help you take on embarrassing issues with poorly aligned teeth without the need to use an appliance that attracts unwanted attention and remains fixed in place.
