For most patients, clear aligners are a great alternative to traditional braces for aligning your smile.
How do clear aligners work?
Clear aligners are custom-made to fit over your teeth and are designed to gradually move your teeth into their proper position. At the start of your treatment, there is a series of aligners made. As your treatment progresses, you'll switch aligners. Each aligner is a little different, so your teeth will move to fit your the next aligner, as long as you're wearing them at least 20 hours per day.
How are clear aligners made for me?
The first step for making your aligners involves a digital scan of your teeth with our iTero scanner. It takes less than 5 minutes! Then, we'll create a digital model of your smile. Dr. Jones will develop a unique and customized treatment plan for your new smile using a computer program. The aligners will then be made by the lab using Dr. Jones' treatment plan.
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 compared to braces.
- Clear aligners prevent wear on the teeth from grinding.
