Clear aligners are a great alternative for those that prefer to avoid wearing traditional metal braces to improve their smiles. This aesthetic system brings your teeth into alignment while remaining virtually invisible. Clear aligner treatment uses a series of clear, customized and removable aligners that are designed to straighten teeth and improve your bite.
- Overly-crowded teeth
- Overly-spaced teeth
- Teeth that have shifted after previous treatment
Our orthodontists use an iTero scanning machine to get a 3-D scan of your teeth, then we decide on a treatment plan and send the impressions off to Align Technology to create your custom series of aligners. The aligners are made of BPA-free plastic that are smooth.
Each of the aligners should be worn for approximately two weeks before switching to the next in the series. You should wear aligners every day and only remove them when eating, or brushing and flossing your teeth.
