What are Clear Aligners?
Treatment with Clear Aligners consists of customized straightening trays that are replaced every two weeks. The trays act as invisible braces that gradually realign your teeth until we achieve your optimal smile. Unlike metal braces, invisible braces can be removed for brief periods to brush, drink, eat, and floss. Invisalign® offers an innovative way to perfect your smile without anyone knowing. Schedule a Clear Aligners consultation with Dr. Andrew Zerbinopoulos in at Point Meadows Dentistry to learn more.
What is the Process?
The process is simple and occurs in several stages. During your initial consultation with Dr. Andrew Zerbinopoulos at Point Meadows Dentistry, he will help you decide whether invisible braces are an option for you. Assuming you are a candidate for Clear Aligners, he will create your customized treatment plan and take digital images of your mouth. The digital images serve multiple purposes. The first is to create a digital 3-D image of the current alignment of your teeth, then it will give us a glimpse of what your smile may look like after treatment with invisible braces. The second is to help create the customized alignment trays that will gradually straighten your teeth. The number of Clear Aligner trays you require depends on the severity of your bite problem.
Benefits of Clear Aligners:
Easier hygiene and maintenance than traditional metal braces. You’re can take clear trays in and out when needed.
Aesthetically-pleasing. Since the trays are transparent and nearly invisible, you’ll have the benefit of smiling and talking without worrying about people seeing brackets or wires in your mouth.
Time-saving benefits. You won’t have to come back to the clinic to receive each set of trays. We typically give between three and six at each visit, so our patients average a clinic visit once every month and a half.
