For most patients, clear aligners are an stellar alternative to traditional braces. During your first visit, Dr. Jones will be able to let you know if you're a candidate for Invisalign.
How do clear aligners correct smiles?
We start by taking a digital scan of your teeth with our intraoral iTero scanner. Then, we'll create a digital model of your smile. Dr. Jones will develop a unique and customized treatment plan for your ideal smile. Each aligner is custom-made to fit over your teeth and is designed to gradually move teeth into their proper position. Clear aligners use gentle force to control tooth movement, similar to braces. As treatment progresses, you'll switch aligners. Each aligner is a little different, so your teeth move to fit the aligner if your aligner is being worn at least 20 hours per day.
What are the benefits of clear aligners?
- No food limitations!
- Since you can take the aligners out, it's really easy to brush, floss, and maintain the health of your teeth and gums.
- Clear aligners are comfortable and less likely to irritate your gums and cheeks.
- Clear aligners prevent wear on the teeth from tooth grinding.
