Patients in the Fairlawn, Ohio, area are interested in learning more about orthodontic teeth straighteners like clear aligner trays that deliver the same results without wearing conventional metal braces. You’re fortunate! Here at Arsmiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Fairlawn, Ohio, Dr. Sima F. Chegini can improve your smile using the latest in orthodontic technology.
Clear aligner braces are a special dental orthodontic appliance that’s nearly invisible when you wear them. They are made using transparent, non-toxic plastic custom-fitted to fit your teeth perfectly. The clear aligners work much the same way as traditional wire and bracket braces as they apply consistent pressure to your teeth, shifting them gradually into the correct position.
These exciting new braces work by pushing your teeth into alignment over time. The process starts with your consultation with Dr. Chegini. She takes digital scans of your teeth which are then used to create your custom-fit aligner tray set, consisting of a series of trays worn around 20-22 hours per day. You replace your tray about every two weeks. Every tray shifts your teeth a little at a time until you achieve that perfect smile you’ve always dreamed of showing off to the world.
Clear aligner braces are usually recommended for patients who are accountable and compliant. They are the perfect solution for mature teens and adults who desire straighter teeth without the teenager look with social stigma associated with conventional braces. Unfortunately, this treatment is not recommended for younger non-compliant patients whose teeth are still developing and are not fully cooperative.
The exact length of time you would need to wear your clear aligners depends on the severity of your misaligned issues. In most cases, treatment will take between 7 and 11 months.
Some benefits of wearing clear aligner braces include:
The difference between clear aligners and traditional wire and bracket orthodontics is night and day. Clear aligners allow you to eat any foods you love without worrying about cleaning your braces later since they are easy to remove.
You get to do things like eat popcorn, corn on the cob, and other foods that would otherwise be a nightmare if you were wearing traditional braces! With clear aligners, you keep more control of your lifestyle rather than change it drastically to accommodate your braces.
Clear aligner treatment can give you straighter teeth without the hassles and undesirable appearance of braces.
