Clear aligner orthodontics, also known as invisible braces, has become a popular alternative to traditional metal braces for people looking to straighten their teeth. Unlike metal braces, clear aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. In this blog post, we will discuss the benefits of clear aligner orthodontics and how it can help you achieve a straighter, more confident smile.
Clear aligners work by using a series of custom-made, clear plastic trays that gradually shift your teeth into the desired position. Each set of trays is designed to fit your teeth at a specific point in the treatment plan. As you progress through the treatment, you will wear a new set of trays every two weeks, gradually moving your teeth until they are in their final position.
Clear aligners are suitable for most people with mild to moderate orthodontic issues, such as crooked or crowded teeth, gaps between teeth, and bite issues. However, people with severe orthodontic problems may need to consider other treatment options.
It’s essential to consult with your dentist or orthodontist to determine whether clear aligners are right for you. At Piney Orchard Dental, Dr. Greene can assess your teeth and discuss your goals for treatment to help you decide if clear aligners are a great option.
The length of treatment with clear aligners depends on the severity of your orthodontic issues and your treatment goals. On average, treatment with clear aligners takes between six and 18 months. Your dentist or orthodontist will create a custom treatment plan based on your specific needs and will provide you with an estimated treatment time.
In conclusion, clear aligner orthodontics is a popular and effective way to achieve a straighter, more confident smile. Clear aligners are virtually invisible, comfortable, and removable, making them a convenient option for people with mild to moderate orthodontic issues. If you’re considering orthodontic treatment, consult with Dr. Greene to determine whether clear aligners are the best option for you.
