Clear Aligners FAQ

What are clear aligners?

Clear aligners are a modern orthodontic treatment designed to straighten teeth. Made from transparent, medical-grade plastic, these custom-made aligners fit snugly over your teeth, making them nearly invisible. Unlike traditional metal braces, clear aligners are removable, allowing you to eat, drink and maintain oral hygiene with ease. Each set of aligners is typically worn for about two weeks, gradually moving your teeth into the desired position. Clear aligners are a popular choice for both teens and adults looking for a discreet way to achieve a straighter smile.

How can clear aligners improve my smile?

Clear aligners can significantly improve your smile by gradually shifting your teeth into their proper positions. They address a variety of dental issues, including crowding, gaps and bite problems. As you progress through each set of aligners, you will notice your teeth becoming straighter and your smile more aligned. This not only enhances your appearance but also improves your overall dental health. Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean, reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease. Clear aligners offer a convenient and effective solution for achieving a beautiful, healthy smile.

What is the clear aligner treatment process?

The clear aligner treatment process begins with a consultation with our experienced dentist, who will evaluate your teeth and discuss your goals. Next, a digital scan or impression of your teeth is taken to create a customized treatment plan. This plan outlines the movement of your teeth and the number of aligners needed. You will receive a series of aligners, each worn for about two weeks, gradually moving your teeth into place. Regular checkups with our dentist and team help ensure the treatment is progressing as planned. The entire process typically takes 12 to 18 months, depending on the complexity of your case.
