Ready To Straighten Out Your Smile Without Metal Braces?
- June 6, 2016
Welcome back to another edition of the Gentle Dental Care blog!
Dr. Thomas Peltzer, who leads our team, is a native of Plainville, which is why we care so much about providing the best possible care to the good people of this community. If you live in the area, we’d love to see your smiling face in one of our chairs over the summer. If you don’t feel much like smiling, well, we can help with that too.
We always tell our central Connecticut patients that it is never too late to get a better smile, even if you missed out on braces when you were a teenager. In fact, we’d like you to continue missing out on all the clunky metal, because we now have a much easier method for transforming your troubled teeth into something beautiful.
To bypass all the headaches associated with classic metal braces, we use clear orthodontic aligners. These hard to see smile straighteners are a wonderful way for adults to get the job done in a fraction of the usual timeframe, and without too much of a hassle.
In today’s post, we’ll tell you all about it and then all you have to do is follow up with our team to schedule your consultation in our Plainville office.
What Can Aligners Do For You?
The clear orthodontic aligners method of adult orthodontic treatment relies on a series of comfortable, custom-made plastic retainers that slip directly over your teeth. Much like metal wires and brackets would do, each aligner tightly molds to your teeth, applying gradual pressure to shift and your teeth into a more perfect placement.
To kickstart the process, we will do a complete workup and evaluation of your alignment and bite problems, and prescribe a series of specific clear aligners to correct and straighten your teeth.
You will then need to wear each set of aligners for approximately two weeks. At that point, rather than coming in for in-office tune-ups, you will simply switch them out on your own to stay on schedule.
The Benefits Are Clear!
One big benefit is that these aligners will transform your teeth into a gorgeous grin without having to wait 2-3 years. With these, it only takes about 12 months, and don’t worry, the price tag is in the same ballpark as regular old braces.
During treatment, they can be taken out any time you want, making dinnertime and maintenance easy. Try doing that with braces!
Plus, dietary restrictions and weird tools will not be a part of the plan.
What’s more, because your hardware is see-through, no one will ever have to know about the project! There will be no awkward moments at work or at play.
Think about it: after you have achieved properly aligned teeth, your oral health will be better because it will be much easier to keep your pearly whites clean and looking good.
Doesn’t that sound good to you?
Are Orthodontic Aligners For You?
Clear aligners are a safe and effective orthodontic treatment for folks with crowded, gapped, and crooked teeth.
Just so you know: if you have severe alignment and bite issues, or have big spaces between their teeth, you might benefit from a more intense treatment with traditional orthodontics approaches. One way or another, we will find the way that makes the most sense for you when you come in for your consultation.
