Clear aligners, also known as invisible aligners, are a type of orthodontic treatment that corrects improperly aligned or crooked teeth.
The technology used in clear aligners makes orthodontic treatment less noticeable. Sanders & Soult Family Dentistry in Aurora, CO, can help align a person’s teeth to give them a healthy and beautiful smile.
How Do Clear Aligners Work?
As with traditional braces, clear aligners work to move the teeth a little bit at a time. Plastic aligners gently reposition the teeth in just the right way.
How Are Clear Aligners Different from Braces?
Clear aligners offer convenience and flexibility to the individuals who wear them. Clear aligners are virtually invisible and removable, making them favorable for preserving good oral hygiene. Many teenagers and adults prefer the discreet look of clear aligners over metal braces.
Can Anyone Get Clear Aligners?
People with mild or moderate crowding or minor spacing issues are good candidates for clear aligners.
Clear aligners are specifically customized to provide a tight fit. Therefore, clear aligners are suitable for teenagers and adults.
How Does One Get Clear Aligners?
The team at Sanders & Soult Family Dentistry will conduct a complete assessment, including a preliminary check of the jaw, teeth, and mouth structure. If a bite correction is required, the team will design a plan to correct the bite.
Design a Plan
The dentist will draw up a custom treatment plan demonstrating how the aligners will gradually shift the teeth into the desired position.
Make Clear Aligners
Once the plan is approved, they will send a digital image or impression of the mouth to a laboratory to get the clear aligners made.
After receiving the clear aligners, wear them daily. Each set needs to be worn for 20 to 22 hours a day and only removed for eating, drinking, and brushing.
Clear Aligners Care
Between 4 and 12 months is the average length of time patients wear clear aligners. In some cases, treatment times can take up to 18 months to complete, but patients see results within a few weeks.
Brush and Floss
As clear aligners improve the structure of your smile, it’s essential to keep your teeth and gums healthy by brushing and flossing regularly.
Once the teeth align and straighten, the treatment is complete. A clear retainer is custom-made based on the impression taken from the newly aligned teeth. Wearing the retainer during sleep will maintain the teeth aligned.
How Much Do Clear Aligners Cost?
Clear aligners treatment costs vary by brand, length of treatment, and the number of aligners required. Sanders & Soult Family Dentistry accepts insurance and offers patients monthly payment plans.
