At Jennings & Larson Family Dentistry, we offer clear aligners as an alternative to traditional braces. Unlike braces, clear aligners do not involve the use of metal brackets and wires. Instead, they rely on custom-made plastic aligners to correct the position of your teeth. These aligners are made using advanced computer technology and clear plastic, giving you a treatment that is comfortable, effective and nearly invisible. Clear aligners can treat all the same problems as regular braces, including:
- Crooked and crowded teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Bad bites (overbites, underbites, open bites, crossbites, etc.)
When you receive clear aligner therapy, your treatment will consist of a series of aligners. You will switch to a new set of aligners every few weeks with each new set of aligners making small adjustments to the position of your teeth until they have all been moved into their optimal positions. You will meet with our dentists regularly throughout your treatment to ensure that your smile is progressing as planned.
The aligners are also removable, making it possible for you to eat whatever you would like and to brush and floss without difficulty. We recommend that you wear your aligners any time that you are not eating, brushing or flossing. Remember, the more frequently you wear them, the more quickly your treatment will progress. We also recommend that you clean your aligners regularly to prevent them from causing your teeth to appear dirty or stained.
