Clear aligners: Restore the smile you used to have or get the smile you’ve always wanted without braces!
If you think straightening your teeth requires silver “metal mouth” braces, your concept of modern orthodontic treatment is out of alignment! At Flower Mound Dental, we encourage you to acquaint yourself with innovative alternatives to fixed, silver-colored metal braces. Options such as clear aligner therapy are perfect for our many patients who are active working professionals, busy parents, and even retirees who have noticed teeth shifting or larger gaps between their teeth over a period of time.
Systems like ClearCorrect® are attractive to both adults and teens because treatment is:
The “secret” to removable, painless, and cosmetic orthodontic treatment is in the aligners themselves. Unlike conventional options (brackets, wires, and bands), the aligners are made from a smooth, flexible, and transparent plastic. When fitted perfectly to the contours of your teeth, these appliances place consistent yet gentle pressure on the teeth. Worn daily and only removed when eating or cleaning your mouth, aligners incrementally reposition the teeth.
Due to advances in aligner technology, ClearCorrect® and similar systems are appropriate treatment options for many different patients – from those with more superficial cosmetic cases of crowding and uneven spacing to those with more extensive bite problems (underbite, overbite, crossbite, and open bite). Plus, no one has to know that you are straightening your teeth! The transparent plastic is nearly invisible when you smile.
Please contact the team at Flower Mound Dental today to schedule your aligners consultation with Dr. Wyatt. During your consultation, Dr. Wyatt can even show you how your teeth will look during and after treatment. These systems use advanced technologies to render digital models of your mouth and animated simulations of the straightening process. Such technology is also used to fabricate the aligner trays.
We will also advise on periodic follow-up visits throughout treatment. During these follow-ups, we provide the next sets of aligners. Each set is associated with a different phase of treatment. They are marked, so you wear each aligner in the correct order.
While the time required to straighten your teeth with aligners is comparable to traditional orthodontic treatment (braces), the time commitment is also unique to each patient’s needs and circumstances.
