Clear aligners are a set of clear removable aligners that are worn over the teeth. These aligners can be removed to allow you to eat, brush, and floss normally. Clear aligners are comfortable, convenient, and easy to use.
Teeth that are crowded, gapped, or misaligned are more difficult to clean. Over time, this can lead to increased risks of tooth decay and gum disease. Crowded and misaligned teeth are also more prone to crack and wear. Straightening with clear aligners can protect against these issues.
Clear aligners are a non-invasive, aesthetic solution for straightening teeth. If your teeth are crowded, gapped, or misaligned, clear aligners can give you a healthier, more beautiful smile.
First, you will have a consultation with West Allis dentist, Dr. Anderson. Our dental team will determine if you are a good candidate for using clear aligners. A 3D model is created of your teeth. This model is used to design the steps of your individualized treatment plan. With this model, you can see what your teeth will look like after treatment.
Clear aligners are custom-fabricated for your teeth. About every two to four weeks, you will change to a new, slightly straighter aligner.
Patients experience less pain, discomfort, and mouth sores than patients with traditional metal braces. Clear aligners also have a lower risk of plaque buildup during treatment since you can remove aligners for proper brushing and flossing.
