At Precision Cosmetic Family Dentistry, orthodontic treatment with clear aligners has become an increasingly popular alternative to traditional braces. These plastic trays are designed to move the teeth gradually over time, using a series of custom-made trays. Many patients find this treatment more comfortable and convenient than traditional braces. Clear aligners are removable, so patients don’t have to worry about dietary restrictions or cleaning around brackets and wires. There is typically less pain associated with clear aligner treatments than with traditional braces. This orthodontic treatment is best suited to mild to moderate orthodontic cases.
How Does Clear Aligners Work?
Clear aligner therapy is an increasingly popular method of straightening teeth without using traditional metal braces. This method uses trays that are made of clear plastic. Each tray is worn for two weeks and switched out for the next one in the series until the teeth are in the desired position. The trays apply pressure to move the teeth into alignment slowly over time. They are also much more discreet than traditional braces, making them an ideal option for patients who are self-conscious about their smile's appearance.
Clear aligner therapy is a much less aggressive method for aligning your teeth than traditional orthodontics. However, it is still highly effective at shifting the teeth to improve appearance. In addition, they can be used to treat many misalignments, including overbites, underbites, crossbites, open bites, gaps between teeth, and more. This makes them an effective treatment option for a wide range of patients.
The Benefits of Clear Aligners
The clear plastic aligners fit snugly over the teeth and move them into place much more comfortably than traditional braces. They also do not require wires to tighten, which can cause soreness in the mouth. You will also see results much faster with this method than with braces. The average time for treatment is nine to fifteen months, whereas it can take years to straighten teeth with traditional braces.
Another significant benefit of clear aligners is that they are comfortable. They fit tightly over the teeth and do not have sharp edges that can irritate the mouth and cause sores. Many people feel more at ease with clear aligners because they are invisible to others.
No Food Restrictions
Since you can take out the aligners to eat, there are no food restrictions that you have to follow during treatment. Suppose you want to eat popcorn with your friends during your movie date on the weekend. In that case, you can take your aligners out and enjoy the snacks.
