What Are Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners are an innovative orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth without traditional metal braces. These custom-made, transparent trays are crafted from smooth, comfortable plastic and fit snugly over your teeth. Clear aligners gradually move your teeth into their desired positions by applying gentle pressure. The alignment process is completed through carefully planned, incremental adjustments in your aligner trays.

Our office will create a customized treatment plan for your unique orthodontic needs. We have the experience with clear aligners to address mild to moderate orthodontic cases of crowding, overbites, underbites, open bites, crossbites, and gaps in teeth.

Benefits of Clear Aligners

Our office recognized clear aligners as an effective alternative to traditional braces to straighten your teeth. Aside from straightening your teeth, clear aligners offer many benefits for patients undergoing orthodontic treatment. Benefits of clear aligners include:

  • Discreet Appearance: Clear aligners are nearly invisible, allowing you to straighten your teeth without drawing attention to your orthodontic treatment. This is a great option for adults and teens who prefer a more subtle solution for correcting bite issues.
  • Removable: Clear aligners can be easily removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. This allows you to properly brush and floss your teeth and eliminates restrictions with eating and drinking.
  • Comfortable: Made from smooth plastic, clear aligners are designed to be comfortable and reduce irritation.
  • Customized Fit: Each set of aligners is custom-made to fit your teeth perfectly, based on digital scans or impressions.

Our Orangevale Clear Aligner Process

Our dentist will begin your treatment with a consultation to discuss your needs and assess your teeth to determine if clear aligners are the right choice for you. We will then take impressions of your teeth and send them to a trusted lab where your aligners will be created.

Once your aligners are ready, you will return to our office to pick them up and receive detailed instructions on proper wear and care. Each set of aligners is typically worn for about two weeks, for 22 hours a day, only being removed when eating, drinking, and brushing your teeth. You will then revisit our office every few weeks to receive your next set of aligners and allow our dentist to check the progress of your teeth alignment.

Clear Aligner FAQs

Our office understands you may have questions regarding clear aligner treatment. Our knowledgeable staff is ready to answer your questions and guide you throughout your treatment process. Common clear aligner questions are:

Will I need to wear a retainer after completing treatment with clear aligners?

Yes, wearing a retainer after completing treatment with clear aligners helps maintain the newly aligned teeth in their corrected positions. Our dentist will provide specific instructions on retainer use.

Clear aligners should be cleaned regularly to prevent bacteria buildup and odors. They can be gently brushed with a soft toothbrush, mild soap, or approved cleaner. Avoid using hot water, as it can warp the plastic.

Yes, clear aligners can correct minor relapses or teeth shifts after previous orthodontic treatment. Our dentist will assess the extent of the shifting and determine if clear aligners are suitable for realigning your teeth.

Clear aligners are versatile tools used to treat a variety of orthodontic cases for teens and adults. Our dentist will perform a consultation prior to treatment to determine if they are the correct solution for your teeth's alignment.
