Do you desire straighter teeth? Clear adult braces are an orthodontic treatment that corrects crooked, crowded and gaps between teeth using a series of clear plastic trays called aligners. They provide an effective alternative to traditional braces and metal wires
Clear adult braces use 3-D computer imaging technology to create a sequence of custom-made clear aligners that correct problematic bites. Each clear aligner in the series is worn for a couple of weeks and incrementally moves the teeth into the desired position.
The clear braces provide patients with a more cosmetic and more comfortable treatment than most other orthodontic appliances. The treatment is practically invisible.
Clear Braces Process
Clear aligner technology provides a series of custom fit, clear plastic aligner tray that is worn over the teeth.
The doctor will first take an impression of your teeth and send it to the lab where they use it to fabricate the aligners.
The dental laboratory then generates a set of progressive trays, which move your teeth into a desired position over a period of time.
A new tray is swapped out at regular checkups until the desired alignment is reached.
The result is teeth that are properly aligned and an improved smile. It is important, however, to note that some alignment issues can not be corrected using clear braces. Please consult with your dentist or orthodontist and they can help diagnose whether this treatment is an option for your dental needs.
