Can Your Teeth Be Straightened Without Traditional Braces?

Clear aligners can offer ideal help patients who have issues with crooked teeth, but want to avoid using traditional metal braces. These patients may have alignment issues that have been bothering them for some time, or they may be frustrated by their teeth re-shifting after earlier orthodontic work. You have the option of having Invisalign aligners provided to make corrections, or you can undergo care with ClearCorrect. In addition to being inconspicuous, this form of orthodontic care can be more comfortable, as you will be able to remove your aligners when you eat, or when you are about to clean your teeth. While some patients do require traditional metal braces to make their necessary corrections, many people can be approved for clear aligners.

Undergoing An Orthodontic Adjustment Using Clear Aligners

The first step during treatment with clear aligners is to take impressions of your teeth. This can be accomplished with digital x-rays and high-definition photos, which are used to devise your treatment process. You will have a sequence of plastic trays provided to you, which will provide gradual corrections every time you switch to a new aligner.

How Straightening Your Smile Can Benefit Your Appearance, And Your Oral Health

You can quickly recognize the cosmetic value of orthodontic work simply by seeing how previous patients’ smiles have improved. What you should also know is that it is possible to see real oral health benefits, too. Fixing overlapping teeth can make it easier to brush and floss more effectively. You can also make sure you enjoy a more natural bite, and are less likely to develop jaw problems over time because of malocclusion.
