What are clear aligners?

Clear aligners are removable, plastic-based molds that fit over your teeth to straighten them gradually over time. Your Solomon Family Dentistry provider switches your aligners every two weeks to ensure the continued movement of your teeth in a timely manner.

Clear aligners are completely different from traditional braces. They are almost invisible, and you can remove them, which provides you with flexibility when it comes to straightening your teeth.

How do clear aligners work?

Your provider uses the SureSmile® clear aligner system to gently shift your teeth into their desired position. They first take a 3D model of your teeth to analyze the positioning of your teeth from all angles. Then the system’s software calculates the projected movement of each tooth until it reaches its final placement to create your clear aligners. 

Your plan is entirely customized, giving you nearly invisible trays made from clear, high-quality plastic materials that fit directly over your teeth. They also deliver the same results as traditional braces.

Clear aligners can correct your:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Gapped teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Mild to moderate misaligned teeth

You need to wear your aligners 20-22 hours every day, removing them only to eat and brush your teeth. Most treatments last between 12 and 18 months, depending on the severity of your orthodontic needs.

Your dental professional monitors your progress along the way, ensuring that you have a successful outcome. 

What are the benefits of clear aligners?

Many prefer clear aligners over traditional braces because of the benefits, which include:

  • Almost invisible
  • Removable for eating, brushing, flossing, and cleaning your aligners
  • Fewer and quicker checkups
  • Easy to clean your teeth
  • No emergencies, such as broken brackets or wires
  • Custom-made for comfort

Clear aligners allow you to forego the complications you might experience with traditional braces, like gum irritation or even feeling embarrassed about the way they look.

Are clear aligners right for me?

Your provider might recommend clear aligners for you if you:

  • Need mild or moderate adjustments
  • Commit to wearing your aligners 20-22 hours a day
  • Commit to the treatment plan
  • Practice good oral hygiene
  • Have a healthy mouth
  • Don’t have prosthetics or full-mouth implants
