Clear Aligners

If you want a straight, even smile and a healthy bite, but hesitate at the idea of having to wear metal braces on your teeth, orthodontic technology has an alternative that can deliver the results you want without brackets and wires. Clear aligners use a series of clear plastic aligners to progressively and gently move teeth into the desired position. When worn, these “trays” are nearly invisible, letting you pursue orthodontic treatment without advertising it to the world.

Clear aligners have revolutionized the world of orthodontics because they’ve given patients of all ages who prefer to avoid having visible braces a convenient, discreet, and effective way to correct alignment problems. As an early adopter of clear aligners, Dr. Bhavnani has successfully treated hundreds of cases with clear aligners. She’s comfortable taking on almost any case with clear aligners, no matter how complex.

How Do Clear Aligners Work?

Clear aligners shift your teeth gradually over time with custom-made clear plastic aligners that are worn up to 22 hours per day. Treatment starts with a complete digital scan of your mouth to create the individualized aligners designed to meet your treatment goals.

Each set of aligners is replaced with a new one weekly to continue moving your teeth toward their final desired position. The key to clear aligner success is compliance—the more consistently you wear your aligners, the better your results.

What Are the Advantages to Clear Aligners?

Patients are usually drawn to clear aligners because they’re a virtually invisible way to fix crooked teeth. However, they also have other features that can offer more normalcy and convenience during treatment than traditional braces. These include:

  • No dietary restrictions: Because clear aligners are removed completely when eating, nothing is off limits!
  • Easier dental hygiene: There are no impediments to fully brushing and flossing as there can be when you have to work around wires and brackets. Your regular dental hygiene routine remains the same.
  • Comfort: Smooth plastic trays have no sharp edges or pointy wires to irritate the mouth.
  • Fewer appointments: Rather than coming in for adjustments, your treatment advances when you switch to the next set of aligners at home. You’ll only need periodic checkups to monitor your progress.
  • Few emergencies: Without brackets to dislodge or wires to poke, clear aligner patients rarely need emergency visits.

Given these benefits, it’s no wonder clear aligners have become such a popular choice. We recommend that every prospective clear aligner patient start with a complimentary initial consultation to determine if they’re a good candidate for treatment and to learn about their orthodontic options.

How Much Do Clear Aligners Cost?

Like the cost of braces, the cost of clear aligners will depend on the complexity of your alignment and bite issues. In addition to working with you to maximize your insurance benefits, B Orthodontics offers a range of convenient payment options to help keep clear aligner treatment within your budget.
