Clear aligners, also known as invisible aligners, are tight-fitting mouthpieces that serve as an alternative to braces.
To straighten your teeth, these plastic teeth replicas firmly but gently push your teeth into new positions. Every few weeks, to continue the transformation, you get new aligners that are slightly different.
Avion Dental offers the ClearCorrect brand of clear aligners. These aligners are customized to your mouth based on digital images and impressions that you take in-office.
Clear aligners are a great choice for people with mild to moderate teeth crowding or those with minor tooth-spacing issues.
If you’re suffering from more severe or complex issues, braces may be the better choice. Also, clear aligners work best for teens and adults because they have such a tight fit. Clear aligners aren't usually recommended for children because their teeth and jaws are still developing.
To get your clear aligners, you need to come to Avion Dental for a consultation and a fitting. During your consultation, your provider examines your mouth and teeth along with your general oral health. If they decide that clears aligners can help you, they then do a fitting.
During a fitting, your provider takes an impression of your mouth. Then, they use this fitting to create your aligners in the same building. Using computer software, they design each set of aligners to move your teeth in a precise order.
Clear aligners offer patients a number of advantages, such as:
Clear aligners are virtually invisible. This is a great benefit for those who want to straighten their teeth but don’t want something conspicuous, like metal braces.
Unlike braces, you can take your clear aligners out of your mouth at will. It’s easy to clean them and to take them off to eat. In order for them to work, though, resist the urge to remove them whenever they’re uncomfortable. For the best results, wear them about 22 hours a day.
Because you can remove clear aligners, it’s easy to clean them well and brush and floss your teeth. Other appliances, like braces, make cleaning more difficult.
