Clear Aligner Orthodontics
When most people think of orthodontics, they picture metal braces or “train tracks” on a person’s teeth. Traditional braces are effective in correcting crooked or misaligned bites, but they also have many drawbacks. The appearance, discomfort and inconvenience of braces are not desirable for most people. Luckily, you no longer need to endure metal braces to achieve a healthy, straight smile. At Taylor Dental & Implant Center, we offer clear aligner orthodontics that are invisible, effective and comfortable for our patients.
Braces straighten teeth by applying pressure to shift them into the preferred position. Wires must be tightened, bands must be applied and often repairs are needed when wires break. The metal can rub against the inside of the mouth and cause discomfort. Plus, certain foods must be avoided to protect the braces and it can be difficult to keep teeth clean.
With clear aligners, the same results can be achieved without all the drawbacks of braces. The aligners are clear and nearly invisible, fitting comfortably over the teeth. Every few weeks new aligners are put in place to move the teeth slowly into position. Patients can remove the aligners to eat their favorite foods and brush their teeth. It is a convenient and comfortable way to get straight teeth and a healthy smile.
