Clear aligners, like Reveal Aligners, can fix mild to moderate orthodontic issues for patients of all ages. Patients with orthodontic issues are often discouraged by the prospect of wearing a visible dental device, and worry about difficulties when cleaning their teeth or speaking.
Clear aligners are designed to be a discreet alternative to metal braces and a comfortable way to get orthodontic treatment.
But, what can they help you treat exactly? Let's find out!
Thanks to the 3D design technology that has emerged in dentistry, doctors, and technicians are now able to create perfectly fitting braces made out of a clear acrylic material. Every patient receives a series of custom-fitted trays that will be worn for a couple of weeks. The aligners gradually correct orthodontic issues and have been shown to deliver faster results than traditional braces.
Clear aligners are calibrated to gradually correct orthodontic issues while being extremely discreet. They can be removed when the patient cleans their teeth, which makes the task easier and more efficient.
Clear aligners can solve minor to moderate orthodontic issues, including:
Your dentist will assess your unique case and will decide if clear aligners can solve the issue, or if another type of treatment is needed. The doctor might take X-rays and prints of the teeth, and a plan of treatment is discussed with the patient.
Some orthodontic issues cannot be corrected with clear aligners and need a stronger device for treatment. Braces will be recommended if the rotation of the crooked teeth exceeds a certain value, if the gap between teeth is too big, or if the patient needs a realignment of back teeth.
Experienced dentists like Dr. Mundi Buechele have the expertise to recommend the least invasive treatment for their patients, choosing the method that is going to achieve the desired result, with the least invasive intervention. If clear aligners are able to solve the issue, they will certainly be recommended to you.
If you have minor to moderate orthodontic issues and you would like to see if you're a good candidate for clear aligners, book an appointment at Clermont Family Dentistry. Our doctors and staff are experienced, friendly, and devoted to giving the best kind of treatment to their patients.
