Your Smile is in Great Hands at Indian Trail Dental Studio

Clear Aligners Overview

Teeth aligners are an orthodontic appliance used by people looking to improve the appearance of their smile in a fast, convenient, discreet manner. They are made from clear, BPA-free plastic trays that are virtually invisible when worn. These trays are customized to fit a person’s mouth perfectly, so they remain securely in place while speaking. They work by gradually shifting a person’s teeth into the desired location over time. Unlike with traditional metal braces that are worn constantly, transparent braces can be removed to eat, drink, or clean, making them a convenient way to improve the appearance of one’s smile. They also eliminate the need for frequent orthodontic visits, since the replacement aligners can be mailed to the person’s door every 2-3 weeks as needed.

What Type of Clear Aligners Are Used at Indian Trail Dental?

At Indian Trail Dental, we are proud to offer Clarity Aligners from 3M, ensuring that each of the patients that Dr. Patel recommends treatment for receive fast, effective results. Choosing to improve crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth with  orthodontic aligners comes with a number of benefits, including:

  • Achieving straight teeth faster than traditional braces
  • Straighten teeth comfortably and conveniently, removing your aligner trays whenever you need to eat or brush your teeth
  • Saving you time with fewer visits to the dentist during your treatment process
  • Improving your oral and overall health with a straighter, healthier smile
  • Boosting your self-esteem with a smile you’ll be proud to share with the world

What Kinds of Conditions Can Orthodontic Aligners Treat?

Clear, orthodontic aligners aren’t only convenient and discreet, they are also highly effective at improving common oral health concerns, including:

  • Mild to severe cases of underbite
  • Overbite
  • Overcrowding
  • Gapped teeth

Dr. Patel can determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign braces during your free consultation at Indian Trail Dental. In most cases, it’s important for a person to have the following before moving forward with clear aligner treatment:

  • A fully-developed mouth
  • Healthy teeth and gums
  •  All permanent teeth

How Long Does it Take for Aligners to Work?

Your treatment time with invisible aligners will depend on the condition of your mouth as well as your oral hygiene habits. Most people can complete the treatment process in as little as eighteen months when worn at least 22 hours a day or as directed by Dr. Patel. Failing to wear your aligners as directed or not practicing good oral hygiene could lead to a longer treatment plan.
