Removable clear aligners as a discreet and comfortable alternative to traditional braces. Clear orthodontic aligners are custom-made trays that are virtually mapped out to fit snugly over your teeth. Plus, their transparent design is practically invisible. They gradually move your teeth into their desired positions by applying light areas of pressure on specific teeth, resulting in a straight and beautiful smile.

The benefits of clear aligners extend beyond their aesthetic appeal. Unlike metal braces, clear aligners can be easily removed for eating, brushing, and flossing, improving your oral health throughout your treatment. They also offer a more comfortable to wear, as there are no brackets or wires rubbing the inside of your mouth. Dr. Samia will conduct a thorough orthodontic assessment to determine if clear aligners are the right orthodontic solution for you or your teen.

What to Expect with Clear Aligners

If you are considering clear aligners as an orthodontic treatment, we invite you to visit Dr. Samia for an individual assessment. Our friendly and knowledgeable team will guide you through the entire process, from initial consultation to the completion of your treatment.

During your first visit, Dr. Samia will conduct a comprehensive examination of your teeth and discuss your orthodontic concerns. If clear aligners are deemed suitable for your specific smile, digital impressions or 3D scans will be taken and imported into virtual mapping software. These images serve as the foundation for creating your custom aligners, ensuring a precise and comfortable fit once you’re ready to begin treatment. The computerized program maps your tooth movement so that we can print custom trays that progressively move your smile as you change them out every two weeks.

How to Care for Clear Aligners

We’ll provide you with detailed instructions on how to clean and care for your aligners and smile during your orthodontic treatment. It is important to remove your aligners before eating or drinking anything other than water to prevent staining and damage. Regularly brushing and flossing your teeth, as well as cleaning your aligners with a mild antibacterial soap, will help keep them clean and free from bacteria.

Additionally, it is crucial to wear your aligners for the recommended amount of time each day. Consistency is key to achieving optimal results within the projected treatment timeline. Dr. Samia will schedule periodic check-up appointments to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
