FAQs About Orthodontic Clear Aligners

Common Questions About Orthodontic Clear Aligners

How does Orthodontic Clear Aligners work?

Orthodontic Clear Aligners take a less comprehensive approach to tooth realignment than traditional orthodontic braces and aligners. Rather than shifting all of your teeth, Orthodontic Clear Aligners focuses on the most visible upper and lower teeth at the front of your smile. By ensuring proper alignment of these teeth, Orthodontic Clear Aligners ensures a more symmetrical and attractive smile while minimizing the amount of tooth movement necessary.

Is treatment really less than a year long?

Yes! Realigning your front, visible teeth isn’t as complex as realigning all of the teeth on your upper and lower dental ridges. Therefore, successfully correcting your smile with Orthodontic Clear Aligners can often be achieved in less than year, rather than the 12-24 months that other options require.

How do I know if Orthodontic Clear Aligners will work for me?

While the unique esthetic focus of Orthodontic Clear Aligners means treatment is faster and more convenient, it also means that the clear aligners are best suited for patients with mild to moderate cases of malocclusion. If you have more significant tooth misalignment, than you may require a more comprehensive solution, such as Invisalign® aligners or traditional orthodontic braces. We can help you ensure that Orthodontic Clear Aligners is a good fit before recommending it by performing a thorough examination to diagnose the extent of your malocclusion.
