What Are Clear Aligners?

In this video, Dr. Vahid Bashi explains the comfort and convenience that comes with utilizing clear aligners to straighten teeth.

Clear aligners are an effective orthodontic treatment option for straightening teeth and improving your smile. Here’s how they work:

1. Custom-Fit Trays: Clear aligners are custom-made plastic trays designed to fit snugly over your teeth. They are created in a sequence, with each tray slightly adjusted to move your teeth gradually.

2. Sequential Use: You wear each tray for a specific duration, typically a few weeks, before moving on to the next tray in the sequence. As you progress through the series, your teeth are gradually repositioned, bringing them into their desired alignment.

3. Alignment Process: Clear aligners work by applying controlled and gentle force to your teeth. This force encourages tooth movement and allows for the correction of misalignment issues, such as crowding, gaps, or crooked teeth.

4. Benefits Over Traditional Braces: Clear aligners offer several advantages over traditional braces. They are nearly invisible, making them aesthetically pleasing and less noticeable when worn. They are also removable, which makes eating, brushing, and flossing more convenient. Unlike braces with wires and brackets that can cause discomfort and sores in your mouth, clear aligners are typically more comfortable to wear.

5. Consultation and Treatment Plan: To determine if clear aligners are a suitable option for you, it is recommended to schedule a free consultation with a dental professional. During this consultation, your specific orthodontic needs will be assessed, and a treatment plan can be developed. This plan includes details about the duration of treatment and associated costs.

Clear aligners offer a comfortable and aesthetically pleasing way to achieve straighter teeth and a more confident smile. If you are interested in clear aligners, contacting a dental provider for a consultation is the first step in determining your candidacy and creating a customized treatment plan.
