Clear Aligners Can Straighten Your Smile

Do you have crooked, crowded, or possibly overlapping teeth? Dental misalignment can cause more than just issues with the overall appearance of your smile, but with the health and function as well. But that doesn’t mean metal braces are your only hope! At your Farmington, MI, dental office, we can provide a solution with clear aligners.

The Oral Health Risks of Misalignment

When you have an uneven smile, this could make thorough brushing and flossing difficult, which allows food and drink particles to become trapped. This then increases the risk of plaque and tartar buildup, and with it a greater risk of cavities and gum disease. For others, the stress on your jaw joints from uneven smiles could mean TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding). You may also simply feel uncomfortable with the appearance of your smile. Don’t live with these poor oral health impacts, talk to our team about correcting your smile! With clear aligners, we can offer a cosmetic alternative to braces.

Creating Your Custom Orthodontics

To get started, our team will carefully examine your smile with digital imagery, so we can assess the cause and extent of your misalignment. If we decide these invisible orthodontics are right for you, then we will use the images and measurements in a lab setting to design and fabricate these aligners. Each one is custom-made for your smile, and will be used to gently shift your teeth into proper position. The aligners will be easy to use and clean, and can travel with you too.

Clear Aligner Treatment

Each set is worn for the amount of time the dentist recommends, which is usually about 20 to 22 hours a day, every day for about two weeks. You then begin wearing the next set in the series for the same amount of time. Over time, this corrects your misalignment and straightens your smile. For some, optimal results are possible in as little as one year, while others may need up to 18 months. You can also remove them before you eat or prior to brushing and flossing, which means no need to change your diet and that the risk of stains and cavities is much lower too. You also have fewer office visits!

If you have any questions about clear braces, or if you want to schedule a consultation to see if they’re right for you, then contact our team today to learn more. We want to help you enjoy good oral health and a beautiful smile!
