Custom Clear Braces Aligners

Alternative to traditional braces

Clear aligners are an effective alternative to traditional braces for many patients. They involve a system of clear, removable trays that work to straighten teeth. Each aligner is custom-made to fit over your teeth and is designed to gradually move teeth into their proper position. Using clear aligners for orthodontic treatment is not for everyone, however. The best way to find out if clear aligners are the right option for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Gire.

22 Hours a Day for a straighter smile

Clear aligners are used as an alternative to traditional braces, and are designed to help guide teeth into proper position. Just as with standard braces, clear aligners use gradual force to control tooth movement, but without the metal wires or brackets. They are custom made for you out of a strong plastic material that is virtually invisible. As treatment progresses you switch aligners. Each aligner is a custom created for your desired tooth movement, so your teeth move a little more with every change.

Aligners should be worn for at least 22 hours each day, and you’ll receive a new aligner every two weeks. The length of your treatment depends on the severity of your case.

See the Clear Advantages

Clear aligners are a great alternative to metal braces, or for patients who have had treatment in the past and want to make minor corrections to their smile. There are several advantages to orthodontic treatment with clear aligners.

  • Clear aligners are easier to keep clean, making it easier to maintain the health of your teeth and gums.
  • Clear aligners are comfortable and less likely to irritate your gums and cheeks.
  • Clear aligners prevent wear on the teeth from tooth grinding.
  • Clear aligners are removable, so it’s easier for you to brush and floss after meals. This also means you can take them out when eating, so you don’t have to change your diet while in treatment.

If you’re interested in orthodontic treatment with clear aligners, schedule an appointment and talk to your orthodontist about whether this is the right treatment option for you.

Scheduling a consultation is your first step toward achieving the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.
