Come to your appointment with your questions ready. Typical questions include: what happens if an aligner is lost or broken; can I still play sports or my musical instrument; will my treatment be painful. Your consultation will assist you in determining if this is the best process for you. Dental Choice PC is a Preferred Provider of clear or invisible braces.
The clear aligners system uses a series of specially designed, custom fit, clear teeth aligners that easily and comfortably straighten the teeth. This is a perfect solution for teens and adults. This is a fairly simple process with only occasional checkups required. Every two weeks new aligners are provided. A checkup with the doctor is usually required every six weeks. This frees up the time of patients and makes the process easy and convenient. Clear aligners are designed to be pain free and as comfortable as possible.
A series of clear aligners are custom-made for each patient. The aligners are made of comfortable, smooth material that will not irritate the cheeks or gums, unlike traditional metal braces. They must be worn throughout the day and can be removed while eating, brushing, or flossing. Each set of aligners gradually and gently shifts the teeth into position. They are designed to be virtually invisible and most people do not notice when they are being worn. Each case is different, but the adult treatment length is approximately one year and the teen treatment process is generally typical to that of traditional braces. Teens generally see improvement much sooner than with traditional braces, because their teeth are not covered with metal brackets and wire. The aligners should be worn 20-22 hours a day for best results and a timely outcome.
A broad range of cases can be treated through clear aligners at Marlton dentist. Some of the issues that can be handled effectively through the use of clear aligners are: spaced teeth, overly crowded teeth, crossed-bite, under-bite, overbite, and more. Each of these issues can create more serious complications if left untreated. Spaced teeth can increase the risk of periodontal disease; overly crowded teeth can lead to plaque accumulation, tooth decay, and ultimately gum disease; a cross bite occurs when the upper and lower jaws are misaligned, which can lead to abnormal wear, chipping, and gum disease or bone loss; and under-bite can prevent the normal function of the molars and teeth, which leads to tooth wearing and painful joint and jaw problems; an overbite can lead to gum disease or chipped and fractured front teeth. Clear aligners at Marlton dentist provide professional solutions for each of these issues in a convenient and easy to manage process.
