You may assume that treating your uneven teeth will require metal braces. But our team can offer treatment with clear aligners, so your orthodontics are nearly invisible! In today’s blog, your West Allis, WI, dentist looks at correcting dental misalignment with clear and cozy ClearCorrect aligners!
The Risks of Uneven Teeth
Obviously, your uneven teeth can impact the appearance of your smile and may even make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. But did you know this also leads to issues with your oral health? Poor alignment can make it more difficult to thoroughly brush and floss your teeth each day, leaving you vulnerable to serious ones like tooth decay, infection, gingivitis, and even gum disease. The stress of your poor bite balance could also lead to painful disorders like TMJ disorder and bruxism (chronic teeth grinding). Don’t let your oral health and bite function suffer, talk to us about addressing your misalignment with the ClearCorrect system!
Starting ClearCorrect Treatment
Our team will begin by carefully examining your smile to assess the cause and extent of your misalignment, so we can decide if clear braces are right for you. If so, then we will take detailed digital images and measurements of your smile, which are then used by experts in a dental lab to create your custom aligners. Each set in the series is custom-made for you, gently repositioning your teeth to help you gain a more attractive smile in as little as one year. They will be nearly invisible when in place, and are easy to use, clean, and store. They’re also removable, which means you can avoid changing your diet and that brushing and flossing is much simpler and effective during treatment.
The Clear Aligner Treatment Process
The treatment process is simple. You will wear a set of aligners for about 20 to 22 hours per day on average, the exact time depending on our recommendations. Each set is worn for about two weeks, at which point you move on to the next one in the series. You repeat this process until you obtain optimal results, which is possible in as little as one year. The treatment also requires fewer office visits, and you don’t have to worry about changes to your professional appearance.
