Learn How We Can Help Straighten Your Teeth
Would you love to straighten your teeth but are hesitant because of your age or because you aren’t interested in wearing traditional metal braces? At Grant Family Dentistry, we are happy to treat all of our adult patients of all ages with an orthodontic treatment that does not use metal brackets and wires. Clear aligners are a popular orthodontic treatment that provide a number of benefits that patients love.
What are Clear Aligners?
Clear aligners have become a highly requested treatment over the past few years. Thanks to advancements in treatment technology, clear aligners have many benefits that are different from those of traditional metal braces with the same results. For this treatment, we use clear aligner trays to slowly transition teeth into proper alignment. Each tray is designed to fit comfortably over the teeth. Patients love this treatment because they receive a detailed plan and the estimated length of treatment before the process begins. They also appreciate seeing a digital rendering of what their smile may look like in the future. Clear aligners can help treat issues with your teeth such as:
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Gap teeth
- Minor bite problems
Benefits of Clear Aligners
Clear aligners have many benefits that our patients appreciate:
To keep from damaging the trays, they need to be removed before eating, drinking beverages other than water, and brushing your teeth. Be sure to store your trays in a safe place while eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.
No Food Restrictions
Patients love that they are able to continue to enjoy their favorite foods with no restrictions. With metal braces, patients have a long list of food restrictions that can be discouraging. Some people choose to ignore the restrictions and eat the forbidden foods, which then damages the hardware on their teeth. With clear aligner trays, you can eat anything you want, but if you do not remove them before eating, you will damage them.
Keep Your Normal Oral Hygiene Routine
Since the trays are removable, you can continue brushing and flossing your teeth as usual. There are no wires to complicate things. Be sure to follow our cleaning instructions for your trays to ensure there are no lingering bacteria.
