How to Know If Clear Aligner Therapy Is Right for Me

August 31, 2022 10:24 pm

Do you have uneven, crooked, or gapped teeth? You don’t have to settle for a smile that you don’t love. If you’ve been putting off straightening your teeth because you don’t want to wear clunky, metal braces, we have a solution for you! Clear aligner therapy is a great way to discreetly straighten your smile.

What Is Clear Aligner Therapy?

Clear aligner therapy is an orthodontic treatment that utilizes transparent, plastic retainer trays to straighten teeth. Patients wear each set of trays for about two weeks at a time before moving on to the next set in the series. Patients’ teeth will get straighter and straighter after they complete each set of trays.

Why Choose Clear Aligner Therapy Over Braces

One of the many reasons clear aligner therapy is so popular is that it offers a variety of benefits for patients, such as:

  • Aligners are removed to eat and brush
  • Shorter check-in visits
  • Inconspicuous teeth straightening solution
  • Smooth plastic aligners won’t scratch or cut inside of the mouth

Am I a Good Candidate for Clear Aligner Therapy?

Clear aligner therapy is an efficient orthodontic option for patients with mild to moderate tooth alignment issues. Aligners can be used to correct a variety of issues:

  • Generally crooked teeth
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Misaligned bites, such as overbites & underbites

Each patient’s smile is different and an in-person consultation is the best way to know if clear aligner therapy is the right choice for your lifestyle, smile needs, and budget.
