Top 5 Features Of Clear Aligners!

  • April 3, 2016

Welcome to our oral health blog! We are so glad you found the online home of Gentle Dental Care. As a comprehensive dental practice in Plainville, CT, we offer all the dentistry solutions you and your family need, in one convenient location.

Today we would like to talk about adult orthodontics. Why would you even think about braces, now that you are all grown up? Well, for starters, there’s no age limit on getting a better smile. And your smile is THE FIRST THING that people will notice about you.

Don’t freak out, if your smile is marred by crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth, it is still possible to set things straight. And we want to help make your transformation as smooth as possible.

Depending on your situation, you might be a good candidate for our clear plastic aligners, an awesome new approach to shifting adult teeth that works without having to hook you up to metal braces for the next few years. Keep reading and then get in-touch, if you are as impressed as we are!

Without further ado, here are our top 5 features of our aligners…

1. The Treatment Is Subtle!

No one will be looking at the shiny display in your mouth. So, there won’t be any rude comments, questions, or nicknames. That’s because this orthodontic technique makes use of clear (nearly invisible) plastic aligners to move your teeth into better position. No one will ever know that you are in the midst of a major orthodontic reconstruction.

2. Your Hardware Actually Comes Out!

Think about it: after you have standard metal braces placed in your mouth, there is no getting free from it, until your treatment is completed after 2-3 long years. You just have to grin and bear it, so to speak.

Our aligners won’t be such a hassle. You can take them out for snacks, selfies, and really any time you feel the urge. This makes for a much more pleasant treatment experience.

3. No Lifestyle Adjustments Required!

It couldn’t get much more convenient than this. You won’t have to schedule time away from your job to get orthodontic tune-ups each month. Instead, you help manage the process by switching out your aligners for the next ones in the series (every two weeks or so).

Additionally, you won’t need to keep special tools on-hand, or waste time shopping for food that won’t get trapped in your metal wires and brackets. None of those problems will apply to you.

4. The Treatment Is Comfortable!

We admit that metal braces have their purpose but no one truly grows accustomed to the harsh feel of metal in the mouth. The good news is that our aligners won’t cause pain the way that traditional braces can. They are more like a mouthguard in the way that they rest comfortably over your teeth. So, you won’t need to rely on waxes to form a protective barrier over your soft tissues. With your “clear braces,” there won’t be any bleeding, sores, or discomfort whatsoever.

5. The Transformation Is Quick!

As an adult, why should you have to wait around for 2-3 years to see any improvement in your smile? With aligners, you can look and feel much better in only about 12 months time. How nice is that?

And once treatment is complete, your new and improved smile will be as good or better as metal braces would have given you. We think better!
