In the world of orthodontic treatment, clear aligner systems are considered as an innovation from the metal wires and brackets used to provide healthier and straighter teeth. Getting a smile makeover is more comfortable and easier with this dental appliance that discreetly puts pressure on the teeth to move them into proper position.
Here in Garden City, NY, Dr. Eugene Porcelli, uses clear aligner orthodontics as a standalone procedure or for extensive smile makeovers. But how can clear aligners remake smiles?
Minor Teeth Movements are Key
Giving your smile a makeover will not happen overnight. The clear aligner trays are designed to create minor teeth movement to resolve your orthodontic issues. The treatment time would depend on the actual condition of your teeth. It’s important to note though that minor teeth movements take comparatively less time to deliver the desired results compared to more traditional orthodontic methods.
Although the treatment might span several months to a year, you could definitely see noticeable changes in just several sessions. Your compliance with the treatment program will play a huge role not only on the success of the procedure but also on how fast you achieve your desired results.
You’ll Go Through a Series of Aligners
The smile makeover you get from this treatment will require you to go through a series of clear aligner trays that are made from durable plastic. This proprietary design will be customized to your specific condition. Every two weeks, you will be changing to a new set of clear aligner trays to ensure that your teeth will move into the proper place by the end of the treatment period.
Expect Rapid and Visible Changes
To experience rapid and visible changes, you have to be disciplined enough to wear your clear aligner orthodontics as recommended by your dentist in Garden City, NY. One of the earliest results that you can observe is that there will be a significant difference in your bite. It isn’t easy to wear your clear aligner trays for 22 hours straight every day.
On the other hand, it is a necessity that you have to deal with if you are serious about remaking your smile for the better. It could be challenging at first and you may be too conscious about removing your trays for too long. But in due time, you will be able to adjust to it and learn how to remove the trays for eating, drinking, and doing your oral hygiene routine.
