In orthodontics, we resolve teeth issues that include malocclusion, teeth spacing, misalignment and overcrowding using a different approach. We offer a revolutionary dental appliance that changed the game of orthodontics. Introducing, clear aligners!
The clear aligner system uses a progressive set of trays that look like a thin mouth guard. No more “metal mouth” for our patients who may be self-conscious of how they look with traditional braces on their teeth. The trays are designed using CAD/CAM technology after a digital dental impression is taken. They are pre-fabricated based on the expected movement of the teeth after a certain period of the treatment. Once a set of trays adjusts the positioning of the teeth and maintains it, the tray is changed and the treatment progresses.
Clear aligners are made from a clear, flexible thermoplastic materials. Though plastic, they are durable enough to move your teeth into the right direction. One of the best features of clear aligners is that they are removable. This is a huge help to our orthodontic patients who struggle in maintaining oral care with traditional braces. The metal brackets make room for food particles to get stuck in between, therefore increasing bacterial growth. With clear aligners,you can take out the trays when eating and clean your teeth, which is more convenient. This treatment option gives comfort and flexibility to patients, notwithstanding its discreet appearance that makes patients not to feel self-conscious.
