Clear Aligners for Discreet Tooth Movement

The alignment of your teeth plays a significant role in your smile’s cosmetic appearance. It also plays a big part in how efficiently and comfortably your bite functions, which has a direct impact on several other aspects of your oral health. Fortunately, many patients can improve their tooth alignment and optimize its role in their bite function, all without having to rely on traditional orthodontic braces. Clear orthodontic aligners are designed to improve your smile’s alignment and appearance more discreetly, more comfortably, and more conveniently than braces, and are appropriate for a number of different orthodontic conditions.

How clear aligners work

Clear aligners are made to discreetly straighten crooked teeth by following similar orthodontic principles as conventional braces. The difference is that aligners are designed to continuously guide teeth as you progress through them, while braces provide constant but gentle pressure through an arch wire. One of the most notable advantages of clear aligners is that they’re significantly more discreet than metal brackets and wires. In fact, they remain virtually undetectable as you smile and speak to family, friends, and co-workers throughout the day.

Taking advantage of clear aligners

By utilizing clear aligners instead of traditional orthodontic braces, we can offer several benefits to patients who qualify, such as:

  • More comfortable treatment
  • A convenient treatment cycle
  • Improved confidence (even during treatment)
  • And much more
