Aspen Grove Dental Discusses Clear Aligner Therapy
The doctors at Aspen Grove Dental are known for adopting technology into their dental practice in order to provide patients with the best service possible. The ClearCorrect orthodontic therapy is one example of the state-of-the-art service they provide their patients.
The ClearCorrect clear aligner therapy is changing the way many people address misaligned teeth to improve bite function and/or straighten teeth. They offer a welcome alternative to traditional braces. If you’re interested in a healthier, more attractive smile, here’s what you need to know about this orthodontic therapy.
Clear aligners are made of a strong plastic material fabricated to fit your mouth. A series of aligners are used to gradually guide your teeth into the proper position. Each custom aligner is typically worn 20 hours a day for two weeks before switching to a new aligner. The therapy has numerous benefits over traditional braces.
Like the name suggests, liners are clear and generally won’t stain. When fit properly, they’re virtually undetectable.
Because ClearCorrect aligners are removable you can eat what you want when you want and remove them for brief periods of relief from pain.
ClearCorrect aligners are customized to fit you and are often used to help prevent wear on your teeth from grinding and they’re a safe alternative for patients with metal allergies.
In most cases, treatment with ClearCorrect aligners is faster than with traditional braces.
Because there are no metal wires or brackets, you don’t have to worry about cuts and scrapes to your gums or cheeks.
Easy to Keep Clean
Unlike braces, ClearCorrect aligners can be removed which means they’re easy to clean. But it also means it’s easier to clean your teeth and gums which makes for better maintenance of good oral health for your teeth and gums.
While not everyone is a candidate for therapy, the dentists at Aspen Grove Dental can evaluate your situation and determine if clear aligners are right for you.
