Problems that clear aligners fix
If you have severe, moderate or light crowding, clear aligners like Invisalign or SureSmile can be a solution for you. Crowded teeth are difficult to clean, and cn lead to accelerated tooth decay, as well as issues with inflamed gums and periodontitis when you can’t clean between your teeth properly. Gently moving the other teeth out of the way, to let the crooked teeth back into the lie of teeth. And then slowly exerting force to rotate and nudge them into place. There are many catses of crowding that may still require braces, however many can be helped with clear aligners. In some cases, teeth may need to be extracted to make way for the teeth to be correct.
Gaps from extracted teeth, or where teeth have drifted after extraction of wisdom teeth, are a common dental problem that Invisalign and SureSmile can help correct. A gap in the front teeth (called a diastema) may have been fashionable I the 80’s, but if you don’t like it, you can have it corrected
The terms crossbite, overbite, underbite, overjet an underjet are common terms used in dentistry, for when your teeth don’t fit together perfectly. These conditions may cause issues with chewing or biting your food. And correcting them can make your life and your nutrition much healthier.
Maybe you have one tooth which is out of alignment – there are some options to help get that tooth back into alignment. Don’t worry – you may only need to wear aligners for a shorter period of time. When we do our assessment, we can give you a clearer idea of what may be needed. SureSmile simple corrections or Invisalign Express are options for many.
Getting started with clear aligners
When you come to our office, we’ll do an examination to understand what you’re hoping to achieve. We’ll make our recommendations for care to ensure the best possible treatment plan for you.
Then, we’ll take X-rays, photographs and impressions of your teeth. All of the information we gather is used to create a 3-D image of your teeth. From there, we’ll be able to present you with a plan for moving forward and outline exactly how long you’ll need to wear your aligners.
How often will I wear my clear aligners?
You will need to wear these aligners all day and only remove them to eat or brush and floss your teeth. Ideally, you’ll keep them in your mouth for 22 hours each day, including sleeping in them. Don’t worry–most patients find them entirely comfortable.
How often will I get new trays?
These comfortable aligners will be changed approximately every two weeks, gradually making the changes you desire in each stage. The total number of stages will depend on the changes necessary.
Will I need to make regular visits?
During this process, we’ll have you stop in to make sure everything is progressing well with achieving your best smile, however it’s much less frequent than someone with traditional metal braces. Most patients enjoy the fact that they don’t need to come in weekly or monthly for check-ins.
