Want a Consultation?
Most commonly used for adult orthodontic treatments, clear aligners slowly straighten a patient’s teeth using a series of customized, fitted trays. These are essentially invisible, as they are free of metal brackets and wires, making them an ideal choice for people who don’t want their orthodontic treatment to be obvious.
Benefits of Clear Aligners
When a patient has minor or moderate spacing issues or crooked teeth that just aren’t aesthetically pleasing, clear aligners can be a great treatment option. If Dr. McGuire determines that clear aligners are the right choice, you’ll enjoy:
- Gradual teeth straightening without visible hardware
- The ability to brush and floss as normal
- Trays that can be removed when eating unlike traditional braces that trap food
- Reduced oral discomfort, as there are no brackets or wires poking cheeks
Clear aligners are often a better option for adults over teens, as aligners can get lost due to the fact that they are removable. They also require more due diligence from the patient, as they will not work unless they are worn consistently for the right length of time.
Dr. McGuire will be able to tell you if clear aligners are a viable treatment option for you. To schedule an appointment for a consultation or to ask questions about this teeth-straightening method, contact Prosmiles.
