Clear aligner therapy is everywhere these days when you turn on the TV or listen to the radio. It seems everyone has a solution for the fastest, easiest, virtual do-it-yourself way to straighten crooked teeth. If you’re considering clear aligners to fix your teen’s smile or maybe even your own, you’ll want to keep reading because your Medford orthodontist has got some helpful information you need to know.
Invisalign® clear aligners are probably the most popular brand on the market today. This is because they’re extremely successful and patients love these clear aligners because they can improve their smile without a mouthful of metal. This proven technology removes the pain, anxiety, and trepidation that can accompany having a more traditional style of braces.
Clear aligners gradually move your teeth as you switch out for a new set about every two to three weeks, depending on how your treatment progresses. One of the coolest things about choosing clear aligners is that you can still eat, drink, floss, and brush just like you always do because the aligners are removable. Your teeth gradually move as you switch out your clear aligners. Treatment time varies depending on your smile needs, but some patients see results in as little as six months!
The best and the first thing you should do is schedule a consultation with Dr. Gheewalla at the Medford Center for Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry. He’s been a certified Invisalign® provider since 2001, helping thousands of patients achieve the healthy, straight smile of their dreams.
