Clear Aligner Therapy
We’re excited to offer clear aligner therapy, an innovative new orthodontic option that allows you to straighten your teeth – without everyone noticing. Unlike braces, which use brackets and wires to guide your teeth into proper alignment, clear aligner therapy uses practically invisible translucent aligners worn over the teeth to gently move your teeth and straighten your smile.
Clear aligner therapy is effective for mild to moderate misalignments, and its treatment time is comparable to that of traditional braces. But clear aligner therapy allows you to look great while you straighten your teeth, not just after!
Why should I straighten my teeth?
When your teeth are tightly crowded or overlapping, it can be difficult to brush and floss them properly. Bacteria can get into these tight spaces and set you up for decay and periodontal disease. Wide gaps can trap food between your teeth, which increases the risk of cavities and gum disease, and can cause bad breath.
Straightening your bite also improves the way that your bite fits together, which is known as your occlusion. When your occlusion is off, you may clench or grind your teeth or develop problems with your jaw joint.
