Clear aligners are a type of orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, plastic trays to straighten and align teeth. The aligners are custom-made to fit over the teeth and are worn for 20-22 hours per day, removing them only to eat, brush, and floss.
To begin treatment, the orthodontist will take impressions of your teeth and create a treatment plan to move your teeth into the desired position. The aligners are then made based on this treatment plan and are worn in a specific sequence to gradually move the teeth into the correct position.
Embarking on your Clarity Aligners treatment begins with an assessment by our experienced orthodontist. These aligners are then meticulously crafted based on this plan, guiding your teeth into their proper positions through a carefully sequenced series.
Clear aligners are a popular treatment option for those who want a more discreet and comfortable alternative to traditional braces. They are also generally easier to clean and maintain than braces, as they can be removed for eating and brushing and do not have brackets or wires to clean around.
Clear aligners are a great alternative to permanently affixed braces. However, clear aligners may not be suitable for all types of dental abnormalities and may not be as effective as traditional braces in certain cases. They may also be more expensive than other treatment options and may require more frequent visits to the orthodontist to ensure that treatment is progressing as planned.
If you are considering clear aligners as a treatment option, it is important to consult with an orthodontist to determine if they are the best option for your specific dental needs and concerns. We recommend scheduling an initial appointment with us to discuss treatment options. Request an appointment with Christensen Orthodontics today!
