Your smile is one of the first things others notice about your appearance, making a “crooked” or misaligned smile an issue that can cause confidence and self-esteem problems as well as hinder the functionality of your teeth. Luckily, you can correct your smile discreetly and effectively using clear aligner orthodontics. Why choose clear aligner orthodontics over traditional braces? Find out with Dr. Eugene Porcelli in Garden City, NY.
What is clear aligner orthodontics?
Traditional orthodontics use metal brackets and wires to place gentle pressure on the teeth to slowly move them into their new positions. Clear aligner orthodontics simply take this same principle, using gentle pressure to move the teeth, and apply it differently. Rather than metal components, clear aligner trays are made from soft yet sturdy plastic and snap into the mouth to move your teeth. Thanks to their materials, the aligners are clear and almost invisible and not at all obvious to those around you.
How can Clear Correct benefit my smile?
Just like traditional braces, Clear Correct straightens your teeth and corrects your bite issues to transform your smile. Some of the many uses of clear aligner orthodontics to improve the appearance and functionality of your teeth include correcting issues such as:
- uneven teeth
- open bite
What can I expect from clear aligner orthodontics?
Clear aligner orthodontics have a simple, intuitive, and easy-to-use design. The aligners come in a series. The number of aligners varies from patient to patient and depends on their treatment plan. Before treatment begins, your dentist takes an impression of your mouth. The dental laboratory which creates your aligners uses the impression to design and create the trays. You will meet with your dentist again after the trays are finished to go over inserting and removing them and their care. You will wear one tray for about two weeks, then switch to the next in the series until you have worn every tray.
