Clear Aligner Therapy in Port Orange
Crooked teeth and gaps are no match for SureSmile clear aligners. Much like Invisalign, this revolutionary system of plastic aligners has helped countless individuals make their smiles more symmetrical and perfect. The best part is that these aligners are almost completely transparent and thin enough to be worn comfortably all day. If you want to fix those little overlaps, this could be the best solution for you.
Clear Aligners Fix?
Clear aligners can treat a wide variety of different orthodontic problems, and are often a viable alternative to traditional orthodontic treatment with braces. Clear aligners are commonly used to treat orthodontic issues such as:
- Uneven and misaligned teeth – If your teeth are not aligned properly or are uneven, clear aligners can straighten them out and provide you with a more appealing smile.
- Crooked, crowded teeth – If your teeth are too close together and are crowded, or are crooked and overlapping each other, clear aligners can typically be used to correct the position of the teeth and restore your smile.
- Bite problems – Clear aligners can be used to correct minor overbites, underbites, crossbites, and even open bite. If your teeth do not fit together properly, clear aligners may be the best option for you.
- Gaps in your smile – If you have large spaces and gaps between your teeth, clear aligners can be used to move the teeth closer together, closing the gaps and providing you with a more attractive smile.
However, it’s important to note that clear aligners can usually only be used to treat mild-to-moderate orthodontic health problems. If you have severely crooked teeth or major bite problems, you may require treatment with traditional braces.
Are Clear Aligners
Cheaper Than Braces?
In most cases, clear aligners will be cheaper than braces if you’re a good candidate for both treatments. This is because they require you to spend less time in the dentist’s chair, and typically also offer a faster treatment time than braces.
However, the cost of treatment with clear aligners can vary quite a bit depending on your overall oral health, the extent of your orthodontic issues, the expected timeframe for your treatment, and other such factors. The best way to get an accurate cost estimate and a comparison with the cost of braces is to see an experienced dentist like Dr. Joseph Smillie and Dr. Helen Smillie for an orthodontic consultation.
Will Clear Aligners
Work For Me?
You are likely a good candidate for clear aligners if you have a healthy mouth that’s free of any major problems like tooth decay or gum disease, and you do not have extensive orthodontic problems.
However, clear aligners are not a good choice if you have any damaged teeth, or if you have an oral health problem like gum disease. These conditions must be resolved before you can be treated with clear aligners.
Additionally, clear aligners may not work for you if you have major orthodontic problems. Braces and other treatments like corrective jaw surgery may be required if you have extensive issues related to your jaw and teeth alignment.
Not sure if you’re a good candidate, or if clear aligners will work for you? The best way to find out is by scheduling an orthodontic consultation at Smillie Dental. Dr. Joseph Smillie and Dr. Helen Smillie can examine your mouth, assess the position of your teeth, and help you understand the right option for improving your smile and your bite.
