Clear Aligners at Ooralea Dental
Are you an adult or teen that’s looking for a comfortable, transparent teeth straightening option? Clear Aligners could be the best choice and we offer the clear braces right here in our Ooralea Dental office.
How Does Clear Aligners Straighten My Teeth?
Instead of brackets and wires, Clear Aligners invisible braces use a series of transparent aligners. Each set of trays is shaped slightly different than the last, gradually guiding your teeth into the desired location. Change them out as directed (usually every two weeks) and enjoy a straighter smile with fewer appointments!
How Quickly Does Teeth Straightening Work?
Everyone’s teeth straightening treatment time is different. If you want fast results, then short term orthodontics (“cosmetic braces”) can straighten your front teeth in as little as 3-6 months. For moderate cases, you might be looking at around 12-18 months. Our Ooralea Dental Clear Aligners dentists will give you an estimated time frame during your consultation.
What’s the Clear Aligners Process Like?
Step 1. The Consultation
Our Ooralea dentists will examine your teeth and let you know how long the process will take. We’ll also record a set of digital photographs and scans.
Step 2. Delivery of Your Aligners
Your digitally designed braces are ready to pick up. We’ll send you home with the first several sets of trays and instructions on how to wear them.
Step 3. Follow Your Treatment Protocol
Change your aligners out as directed. Stop by our Ooralea Dental office every other month for a quick evaluation and to pick up your new sets or alignment trays.
Step 4. Completion
After the final set of aligners, we’ll create a clear rigid retainer for you to maintain your smile’s new shape. That way your teeth don’t relapse into the previous location.
