WHEN YOU’RE READY TO LEARN MORE ABOUT WHAT CLEAR ALIGNER THERAPY CAN DO FOR YOU, YOUR APPOINTMENT IS JUST A CALL OR CLICK AWAY.
What is Clear Aligner Therapy?
Clear Aligners is an innovative alternative to traditional metal braces. The process uses a series of clear plastic aligner trays to gently shift teeth into optimal positioning. Our practice uses SureSmile brand of clear aligners.
Your treatment begins with a comprehensive dental exam. Digital imaging gathers information about your teeth and bone structure, and a proprietary software program uses that data to craft a customized treatment plan. Your aligner trays are crafted to fit snugly over the surface of your teeth.
Once your first set of aligners arrives, you’ll return to learn how to place and remove them.
What kind of alignment issues can SureSmile correct?
Invisalign can treat many of the same alignment issues as traditional metal braces. Some examples of treatable cases include:
- Open bite
- Crowded teeth
- Mix of permanent and baby teeth
- General misalignment
In some cases, metal braces are the best possible treatment approach. Because metal components are affixed to individual teeth, they allow a degree of force to be applied that SureSmile cannot replicate. During your initial consultation, you’ll learn whether SureSmile is a good fit for your unique alignment goals.
What is it like to go through SureSmile treatment?
Once your first set of aligners arrives, you’ll begin wearing your trays around the clock, removing them only to perform your dental hygiene routines and while eating or drinking. It’s important to wear your trays consistently to move forward in your treatment process.
You’ll change to a new set of aligner trays every couple of weeks. A degree of soreness is normal when you switch to new aligners. That’s because each set of trays continues placing pressure to shift teeth into optimal alignment.
Periodically, you’ll visit Holly Street Dental for a treatment progress check-in. Many people find that SureSmile can correct common alignment issues more swiftly than traditional metal braces.
Once your treatment is complete, you’ll receive a customized retainer. Wearing your retainer as prescribed is an essential part of the treatment process and prevents teeth from shifting out of alignment.
