Clear dental aligners are comparable to braces, in terms of their function. They are custom made by our dentist, tailored to align your teeth like braces. However, they come in a clear mouthpiece instead of metal brackets being attached to the surface of your teeth. You may ask our dentist for the range of aligners that may fit your needs.
When Would You Need an Aligner?
You would need an aligner if you already have adult teeth. If you still have your primary (“baby”) teeth, you may have to be required to undergo dental extractions or other treatments prescribed by our dentist. If you have a misaligned bite, problems in your upper and lower jaw, and crooked teeth, you may be the best candidate for clear aligners to mitigate the symptoms and to help prevent severe symptoms in the future further.
The Benefits of Clear Dental Aligners
Using a clear aligner is an excellent treatment option for many patients, especially for adults who do not want to use traditional metal braces. Please be aware that it requires all adult teeth and no baby teeth, though. When compared to braces in terms of length of treatment, clear aligners will make your teeth aligned faster. The treatment itself can take between 10-24 months, depending on our dentist's discretion and your unique oral health situation. The treatment length is on a case-to-case basis.
Using clear aligners is much more beneficial as compared to traditional metal braces, but it depends on your budget, your treatment, and what our dentist may refer to you. In many instances, clear aligners will straighten your teeth faster. Furthermore, the experience may be much more comfortable. There will also be fewer dental visits, as well, making it more efficient for you.
