Clear Aligners - Invisible Orthodontics

One of the primary concerns people have about dental braces is seeing the metal on their smile. Especially for adults, the idea of wearing unattractive metal braces for long periods of time can be very discouraging. Clear Aligners offer an almost invisible aligning system that straightens teeth fast and contains no metal.

How do Clear Aligners work?

Clear aligner orthodontic treatment consists of wearing custom-made aligning trays. Each of these clear aligners corresponds to a slight movement of the teeth. Once all the movements (i.e trays) are completed, the patient will have their brand new smile.

What kind of bite problems can clear aligners correct?

Clear aligners correct the same dental problems as traditional metal braces; the only difference is that the trays are almost invisible to the naked eye, and can be removed at will.
Overcrowding – This occurs when there is too little space for the teeth to align normally in the mouth. Overcrowding can cause tooth decay and increase the likelihood of gum disease.
Large gaps between teeth – This can sometimes occur because teeth are missing or because the jaw continues to grow abnormally.
Crossbite – This common dental problem occurs when one or multiple upper teeth bite inside the lower teeth. As a consequence, uneven wear can lead to bone erosion and gum disease.
Overbite – This problem occurs when the upper teeth project further than, or completely cover, the lower teeth. Eventually, jaw pain and TMJ may occur.
Underbite - This is the inverse of the overbite; the lower teeth project further than, or completely cover, the upper teeth. Eventually, jaw pain and TMJ can occur.

What does clear aligner treatment involve at Annese DMD?

The first step is consultation with the dentist. In this appointment, the dentist will take a digital scan of the patient’s teeth as well as intraoral and extra oral photos. Using this information, the dentist will create a digital treatment plan using dental orthodontic software. The software will allow the dentist to digitally create the perfect smile. Your new smile is made by undergoing a series of coordinated movements by wearing clear aligners. The total amount of aligners required varies with each individual case. It takes about 2 weeks from consultation to begin treatment.
