Clear aligners may be a newer option in orthodontic care, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t capable of amazing transformations. They can correct dental crowding or spacing, straighten/align your teeth, and improve your bite, all by using a series of custom-made trays. This treatment begins with a digital scan of your teeth, which Dr. Collins will use to create your individualized clear aligners. You’ll take the trays home with you and will need to plan to change them out every seven to ten days. Each new tray will gradually move your teeth. The process provides patient flexibility and minimal effect on your appearance during treatment. (It also requires a commitment to consistent wearing.) At Collins Orthodontics we use the latest technologies in clear aligner treatment to make sure you get the best results in the shortest amount of time possible.
Are Clear Aligners Effective?
In short–yes! When overseen by an experienced orthodontist clear aligners are an extremely compelling treatment. In addition to the esthetic appeal, they also have these added benefits:
- Less frequent office appointments
- Little to no emergency visits
- Easier brushing and flossing
- Fewer food restrictions
- More comfortable wearing as compared traditional braces
Although clear aligners have the potential to work for individuals of all ages, they are a particularly popular choice among adult patients. And at Collins Orthodontics, adults are always welcome. We understand aesthetic changes to your smile can lead to an improved self-image—a vital component of positive mental health. Whether you are looking to update past orthodontic treatment or are starting from square one, we can find a plan that suits your lifestyle and orthodontic needs.
In addition to the comfort and convenience of clear aligners, our office is also equipped with a private treatment room allowing you to avoid the commotion that can sometimes be found when surrounded by younger patients in an open-floor plan office.
