ORTHODONTICS HAS COME A LONG WAY!
A Simple And Aesthetic Alternative To Braces
Using gradual force, clear aligners gently move teeth into alignment without the use of metal wires or brackets. Clear aligners are made with very strong plastic material that is fabricated specifically to fit the patient’s teeth. As treatment progresses, the patient switches through a series of aligners, each one bringing the teeth closer to their correct alignment. Based on the amount of tooth movement desired and the amount of time aligners are worn per day, Dr. Wheeler advises the patient when the aligners should be switched out.
What Are The Advantages Of Clear Aligners?
For patients who prefer a lower profile orthodontic treatment, clear aligners may be an option. Clear aligners are extremely simple to keep clean, which makes it easier to maintain healthy gums and teeth. Because the aligners are removable, there are no banned foods and the patient can easily brush and floss as usual!
