What Are Clear Aligners?
Clear aligners are a discreet way to straighten teeth using clear plastic trays that slowly move your teeth into the correct position and are a less noticeable orthodontic service compared to braces. Our clear aligners are clear plastic trays that are so transparent to other people, that it’s hard to tell you’re wearing them. Clear aligners apply a bit of strategically placed pressure to gradually move your teeth a little bit at a time.
Who Do Clear Correct Aligners Benefit?
Clear aligners are an orthodontic treatment option for busy adults and teens. However, they’re not a one-size fits all kind of solution. Factors such as the severity of your case and oral health, age and the commitment to the process all play a role in Dr. Friedberg’s treatment plan for you. Clear aligners are better suited for those with mild to moderate bite issues. For more malocclusion concerns, these will need to be treated with traditional braces, as they have the ability to apply more pressure onto teeth that need more in-depth correction. Our clear aligners are meant to adjust a few teeth at a time.
What Are The Benefits of Clear Aligners?
Clear Aligners VS Traditional Braces
When it comes to achieving straight pearly whites, there are more than just one traditional option on the market. While metal bracket-and wire systems are probably the first option to come to mind, they don’t have to be your only option, and here are Periodontal Associates of Greater Houston, we are proud to offer more than one solution to a straight, healthy smile for our patients. When it comes to traditional braces, many of our patients are opting against them as the metal and length of treatment time are proving braces to be a more outdated option. Braces can make it harder to keep up on proper hygiene as it can be hard to floss each tooth in-between the brackets. Braces also come with some food restrictions as hard, sugary or sticky foods can cause breakages which can slow or stop your treatment process. The comfortability of braces can also be a deciding factor for many as the brackets can rub on the cheeks and lips. When going through the treatment process of braces, the number of dental visits required can also be a determining factor for many with busy day-to-day schedules. For these reasons, Dr. Friedberg offers a more modern solution to straightening your teeth: clear aligners.
Clear aligners are the modern approach to straight teeth, and have proven to be a preferred option among many adults and teens. These clear aligners are discreet while packing a punch to gradually shift your teeth into a straight smile with a perfectly aligned bite. Since these clear aligners are designed to be taken out, there aren’t any food restrictions. Clear aligners also allow for normal hygiene to be continued as you can take out your clear aligners to floss and brush like normal. Appointments are also minimized as your treatment plan is already pre-planned by Dr. Friedberg, and the appointments that are required are simple, quick and manageable. If you’re looking to straighten your teeth, Dr. Friedberg and our team can craft a treatment plan with clear aligners that is personalized to you and your smile goals so you can enjoy all your straight, pearly whites have to offer!
