Clear Orthodontics Aligners
Clear aligners are a more modern substitute for traditional braces. It uses a series of individual "trays" that slowly straighten your teeth. The alignment is achieved by using a sequence of trays, made of clear invisible plastic, that completely covers your teeth. Each tray is slightly altered and worn 20 hours a day for two weeks before moving on to the next phase of the cycle. These aligners are used to move your teeth into a better position. Clear aligners are highly recommended for fixing mild to moderate crowding or spacing of your teeth. A computer makes the tray according to the specifications given to our dental lab by the doctor. Your treatment can take anywhere from six months to two years. Many of our adult patients prefer this form of treatment versus traditional braces for personal aesthetic reasons.
Clear Correct Brand
There are two types of clear braces used today: Invisalign Braces and Clear Correct. Clear braces can solve a variety of dental and orthodontic problems including overly crowded teeth, widely spaced teeth, an overbite, or crooked teeth. First, you should schedule an appointment with our dentist at Inspiring Smiles. The doctor will make an assessment of your teeth and have a discussion on wearing clear braces and the possible outcome you can expect. If the dentist agrees that you are a good candidate for this treatment, an impression, as well as a 3-D image of your mouth, is taken. Then, an advanced computer system designs a series of thermoplastic aligners that will move your teeth in stages according to the plan you and the doctor have agreed on. Each aligner uses controlled force on particular teeth to steadily move them to achieve the best results. Clear Correct is one of the best and most affordable brands of invisible braces, using the latest digital mapping and molding technology. Invisalign braces are clear but eventually cloud up after sufficient wear whereas Clear Correct has a smooth surface that prevents aligners from clouding.
Eventually, your orthodontic treatment has come to an end. However, you still have some work to do! The next step is called "retention" which means you will need to wear a retainer. There are different kinds of retainers available. At Inspiring Smiles, the doctor will select the kind that works, explain the importance of wearing them, and determine how long you need them. It's imperative you understand that once your teeth are straight, not wearing a retainer can shift them back to before wearing braces. So if you want to maintain your new smile, it's crucial you use your retainer as directed.
