Even better news for you, Team Orthodontics has developed a clear teeth aligner service that will correct your smile and provide you with a healthy bite.
All this comes with a minimal amount of office visits, the guidance of a certified orthodontic specialist, and a fraction of the cost of other clear teeth aligners on the market. In addition, we include free teeth whitening to optimize your dazzling new smile!
How Does the Clear Teeth Aligner Process Work?
At Team Orthodontics, a quick 3-minute scan using a flashlight-like wand is taken of your teeth. This scan creates an accurate digital replication of your bite that can be used with our in-house clear teeth aligner software to create a sequence of custom aligners that will move your teeth to their final desired positions. When printed, the clear teeth aligners are worn to move your teeth in tandem with the positions the software has created.
You’ll be given a series of aligners which will move your teeth over a 6-10 week period. During this time, we will assess your progress and provide you with additional aligners to continue your care. These aligners must be worn 24 hours a day, except when eating or brushing your teeth. This will ensure the greatest degree of orthodontic treatment success. Most times, each aligner in the series is worn for 4-7 days, before progressing to the next aligner in the series.
Pros & Cons of Clear Teeth Aligners
What are the Pros of using Clear Teeth Aligners for my Orthodontic Treatment?
These clear teeth aligner trays are aesthetically very hard to detect, making it an excellent option for those patients wanting discretion during their orthodontic care.
Having the ability to remove the aligners, also makes it easier to keep your teeth clean.
The smooth surface of the aligners results in less irritation to the soft tissue inside of your mouth.
When used in the right circumstances, clear teeth aligner treatment is an excellent option for patients not wanting traditional metal braces.
What are the Cons of using Clear Teeth Aligners for my Orthodontic Treatment?
There is no perfect orthodontic appliance. Each has its advantages and disadvantages, with clear teeth aligners being no different. Clear teeth aligner treatment has come a long way, but you should be aware of a few things before choosing this form of treatment.
To put it simply, clear teeth aligners do not have the tooth control capability or “horsepower” to accomplish certain tooth movements and/or bite corrections. If that situation exists, Dr. Danyluk will review with you other braces alternatives that are still discrete but will provide the desired results.
Additionally, if someone is a candidate for clear teeth aligners, traditional braces, and hidden braces, we take into consideration how compliant they will be with wearing their aligners for the required amount of time. If people are forgetful or snack often, the patient will be removing the aligner trays from their mouth too frequently. This can result in extended treatment times or possible diminished treatment success. In this case, we will recommend other orthodontic treatment options.
