Clear Aligners

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are orthodontic devices designed to straighten teeth and correct misalignments in a discreet and virtually invisible manner. Made from transparent, medical-grade plastic, clear aligners offer a more aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional braces. Customized to fit each patient's teeth, these removable aligners gradually shift the teeth into the desired position through a series of incremental adjustments.

Clear aligners have gained popularity due to their comfort, convenience, and ability to address many orthodontic issues, including crowding, spacing, and bite misalignments. This innovative orthodontic solution has provided individuals with a more inconspicuous and flexible approach to achieving a straighter, healthier smile.

Who Can Benefit From Treatment With Clear Aligners?

Patients Looking for a Discreet Alternative

Clear aligners are ideal for adolescents and adults with mild to moderate teeth misalignment issues, such as crowding, spacing, or mild malocclusions. These individuals may have concerns about the appearance of their smile but prefer a less noticeable alternative to traditional metal braces. Clear aligners offer a discreet solution, allowing them to straighten their teeth without paying attention to their orthodontic treatment.

Professionals or Public Figures

Professionals and individuals in the public eye often prioritize discretion and aesthetics regarding orthodontic treatment. Clear aligners provide a subtle way to address teeth misalignment without the conspicuous appearance of metal braces. Whether it's a corporate executive, a public figure, or someone who interacts frequently with others in their profession, clear aligners offer a discreet option that allows them to maintain a professional image while undergoing orthodontic treatment.

Patients Looking for a More Comfortable Alternative

Many adults who did not have the opportunity to undergo orthodontic treatment during adolescence may find themselves seeking treatment later in life. Clear aligners offer a convenient and comfortable option for adults who wish to improve the alignment of their teeth without the inconvenience and discomfort often associated with traditional braces. With clear aligners, adults can achieve their desired smile transformation discreetly and efficiently.

Patients With Active Lifestyles

Clear aligners are an attractive alternative for patients with active lifestyles or specific dietary preferences. Unlike traditional braces, clear aligners are removable, allowing individuals to enjoy their favorite foods without restrictions. Additionally, clear aligners can be easily removed for special occasions or activities such as sports or musical performances, providing greater flexibility and convenience for individuals with diverse lifestyles.

Patients Looking for a More Convenient Alternative

Clear aligners offer a more comfortable and convenient orthodontic treatment option than traditional braces. The smooth, custom-fitted plastic trays are designed to minimize irritation to the gums and soft tissues, providing a more comfortable experience for patients. Additionally, removing clear aligners for eating, brushing, and flossing simplifies oral hygiene routines and reduces the risk of dental issues commonly associated with traditional braces.

How Do Clear Aligners Work? 

Clear aligners utilize a sophisticated yet straightforward process to gradually shift teeth into their desired positions and correct bite issues. The treatment begins with a consultation with our dentist in Carmel, IN, who will assess your dental condition and develop a personalized treatment plan. Our dentist uses advanced 3D imaging technology to create a digital representation of your teeth and maps out the precise movements needed to achieve the desired alignment. 

Once the treatment plan is finalized, custom-fitted clear aligner trays are fabricated for your teeth. These transparent plastic trays are designed to gently apply pressure on targeted teeth, gradually guiding them into proper alignment over time. Each set of aligner trays is worn for a predetermined period, typically one to two weeks, before being replaced with the next set in the series.  

Patients must wear their clear aligners throughout the treatment process for most of the day, typically around 20 to 22 hours per day. The aligners are removable, allowing for easy cleaning and maintenance and the ability to enjoy meals and engage in oral hygiene practices without restrictions.

Regular check-ups with our dentist at Really Smile are scheduled to monitor progress and make any necessary adjustments to the treatment plan. As patients progress through the series of aligner trays, they gradually witness the transformation of their smile, achieving a straighter, more harmonious alignment of their teeth and improving their oral health and confidence.
