Do your crooked or crowded teeth bother you when you smile? If you’ve been thinking about straightening your teeth but have been hesitant about traditional braces, we have a solution for you. Clear aligners are a discreet yet effective way to straighten your smile, improving your confidence and oral health. At Acton Dental Associates we help our patients put their “best smile forward” with the help of clear teeth aligners.
Clear aligner treatment is a form of orthodontia that uses a series of custom-made plastic aligners to gently guide teeth into proper alignment. Unlike traditional braces that use brackets and wires, clear aligner treatment involves swapping trays every two weeks to reposition your teeth. Clear aligner treatment is an excellent option for individuals who want a more discreet option for straightening their smiles.
Clear aligner treatment can be used to correct most of the same mild to moderate conditions that are typically corrected with braces. These include:
The first step to treatment is to set up a consultation so we can confirm if you are a good candidate for clear aligners. Once we confirm that clear aligners are right for you, we will use a special 3-D scanner to create a digital model of your mouth. These images are then used to create your series of custom-made, clear aligner trays.
Once your trays arrive, you will be given sets every few week as you continue with treatment. You’ll come into the office for exams to monitor your progress throughout the process.
It’s essential to wear your aligner trays as much as possible and as directed. While they are removable for eating and drinking or oral hygiene, the more you wear them, the better they will work at straightening your smile.
There are many reasons our patients love choosing clear aligner treatment. Among them are:
You can straighten your smile effectively and discreetly with clear aligner treatment for about the exact cost of traditional braces.
