Clear Aligners / Invisible Braces

Clear & Invisible Braces

Clear aligners, also known as invisible braces, are a popular orthodontic treatment option used to straighten teeth and correct various alignment issues without the need for traditional metal braces.

Here’s how they work and what you can expect from this treatment:

Customized Treatment Plan: The process typically begins with a consultation with an orthodontist or dentist who specializes in clear aligner therapy. They will assess your teeth and jaw alignment and create a customized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

Digital Impressions or Scans: Instead of traditional molds, your orthodontist will take digital impressions or scans of your teeth. These images are used to create a 3D model of your teeth, which serves as the basis for designing your custom aligners.

Aligner Fabrication: Based on your treatment plan, a series of clear plastic aligners are fabricated using advanced computer technology. Each aligner is designed to gradually shift your teeth into the desired position over time.

Wearing the Aligners: You’ll wear each set of aligners for about 1-2 weeks, as prescribed by your orthodontist. They should be worn for at least 20-22 hours per day, only removing them for eating, drinking (except water), brushing, and flossing.

Progress Monitoring: Throughout your treatment, you’ll have periodic check-ups with your orthodontist to monitor your progress and receive new sets of aligners. These appointments allow your orthodontist to ensure that your teeth are moving according to plan and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment.

Comfort and Convenience: Clear aligners are made of smooth, comfortable plastic, making them more comfortable to wear than traditional braces. They’re also removable, so you can continue to enjoy your favorite foods without restrictions and maintain your oral hygiene routine with ease.

Duration of Treatment: The length of treatment varies depending on the severity of your case and your compliance with wearing the aligners as directed. On average, treatment with clear aligners takes about 12-18 months, but this can vary significantly from person to person.

Retention: Once your teeth have been properly aligned, your orthodontist may recommend wearing a retainer to prevent them from shifting back to their original position. Retainers are typically worn at night and are an important part of maintaining your new smile long-term.

Overall, clear aligners offer a discreet, comfortable, and effective way to achieve a straighter smile without the noticeable appearance of traditional braces. However, it’s important to follow your orthodontist’s instructions closely to ensure the best possible results.
