What are clear aligners?
Clear aligners or Clear Braces When it comes to aligning crooked teeth, there are several options that patients can opt for, but none are as inconspicuous and comfortable as: ClearCorrect, Invisalign, MTM . Any of these different brands of clear aligners are chosen by patients who wish to straighten their crooked teeth while maintaining a metal-free smile. As a removable orthodontic solution, clear aligners are also unobtrusive, making them very popular among teens and young people.
Today’s days Clear aligners are very effective for adults who are seeking to straighten their teeth and improve their self-esteem. The process of creating clear aligner system is relatively quick and easy, An impression is taken of the patient’s mouth along with a sequence of photos and a full series of X-rays. Using these impressions, a 3D projection is created to demonstrate how the teeth can be moved incrementally to achieve the desired results. From these projections, a series of clear aligners is created for each stage of the treatment process.
Clear aligners can be used to correct the following types of dental problems:
- A Crowded Smile
When the patient’s jaw does not have enough room to fit all of the patient’s teeth comfortably.
- Widely Spaced Teeth
If there is excessive space between each tooth because of missing teeth or abnormal jaw growth.
Once traditional braces have been removed, some teeth may move in unexpected ways so as to require additional alignment.
When the upper teeth are set over the lower teeth.
When a misalignment of the upper and lower jaws causes some upper teeth to bite on the inside of lower teeth.
More complex dental problems may require the use of traditional braces.
