Who Can Benefit from Clear Aligners

Adults and teens who require orthodontic treatment but are not so keen on the look of traditional braces may be good candidates for a clear aligner option like Invisalign clear aligners. Depending on your orthodontic needs and treatment plan, clear aligners can help in the teeth straightening process without the look of metal wires and painful brackets.

Clear aligners provide an alternative to traditional metal braces. The clear removable trays are similar to metal braces but tend to be more comfortable for the patient and have a faster treatment time. Clear aligners can also be an option for those treated with braces and still need minor straightening to complete a beautiful smile.

Types of Clear Aligners

There are two main types of clear aligner systems that we provide: Invisalign and OthroFX. With these removable appliances, you can continue regular dental hygiene with brushing and flossing without special techniques. Brushing and flossing regularly will help prevent tooth decay and gum disease while you undergo treatment, and clear aligners give you more freedom to care for your teeth. It would be best if you took them out to eat. Otherwise, please leave them in at least 20 hours per day for faster results.

The Invisalign system and other aligners are created using CAM/CAD 3D technology from digital impressions of the teeth. After receiving the impressions, the orthodontist or dentist can create a treatment plan for your new smile. For OrthoFX, the dentist simply needs an initial consultation to create a 3D image of your teeth with a simple scan.

Both options offer orthodontic patients the look of clear braces, with a comfortable fit and the convenience of removing the devices. So, what are the similarities and differences between the two options?
