Having straight teeth and correcting bite issues are vital for maintaining your oral health. However, many patients may hesitate to make these necessary long-term changes due to fear of changing the appearance of their smile. At Henderson Orthodontics, we offer orthodontic devices such as clear aligners to discreetly straighten your teeth and help you smile with confidence.
Clear teeth aligners use gradual force to guide your teeth into the proper position without the need for metal wires and brackets. During your initial appointment, Dr. Henderson will scan your mouth to understand your current orthodontic needs. This scan also allows Dr.Henderson to develop your customized alignment plan. Dr. Henderson will divide your alignment plan into stages to provide efficient care. While you may not have a checkup at the end of every stage, you will visit our office periodically to ensure your teeth are moving in the correct position and you are not experiencing any pain or irritation. You will receive a custom-fit aligner made out of strong plastic material for each stage of your treatment plan or every two weeks for most patients. You will continue to receive new aligners until your teeth are in the correct position. Patients must wear their aligners for at least 20 hours every day. Your treatment time will depend on your orthodontic needs and the severity of your misalignment.
Invisible aligners are an ideal option for patients who want to correct their smile without the appearance of braces or would like to make minor corrections to their smile. Clear aligners offer several advantages:
- Clear aligners are removable, making them easier to clean to maintain healthy teeth and gums.
- Unlike a metal brace, a clear aligner does not have any wires making them more comfortable to wear.
- If you grind your teeth, especially a night, a clear aligner can serve as a mouth or nightguard to protect your teeth.
