Orthodontic treatment has come a long way over the years, and clear aligners are a prime example of the advancements made in this field. At Indigo Orthodontics, we are proud to offer our patients this discreet and effective treatment option. In this blog post, we will discuss the benefits of clear aligners, how they work, and who might be a good candidate for this type of treatment.
What Are Clear Aligners?:
Clear aligners apply gentle pressure to your teeth to gradually shift them into the desired position. We will take digital impressions of your teeth and use specialized software to create a customized treatment plan. You will receive a series of aligners, each designed to make small adjustments to your teeth. Typically, you will wear each set of aligners for 1-2 weeks before moving on to the next set in the series.
You will have regular check-ups with us throughout the treatment process to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
Who is a Good Candidate for Clear Aligners?
Clear aligners can be an effective treatment option for patients with mild to moderate spacing issues, crowding, overbites, underbites, and crossbites. However, clear aligners may not be suitable for more complex orthodontic cases or patients with severe misalignments. Your orthodontist will evaluate your specific needs and determine if clear aligners are the right treatment option for you.
Clear aligners offer many patients a discreet, comfortable, and effective alternative to traditional braces. If you want to learn more about clear aligners and whether they might be the right treatment option, please get in touch with Indigo Orthodontics to schedule a consultation.
