What Are Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners are an alternative to traditional metal braces and are designed to help guide teeth into their proper position using a series of clear aligner trays. These trays are transparent, BPA-free plastics that you can remove when eating, brushing your teeth, and attending special occasions.

How Clear Aligners Work

Like traditional metal braces, it gradually moves teeth to their ideal position. These aligners are plastic replicas of your teeth made from digital scans we get prior to your treatment. Wearing these aligners puts gentle pressure on the teeth, ever-so-slightly repositioning them. Each set of aligners is worn for a week or two before moving on to the next set. Over time, teeth reach their ideal, healthy positions, according to the orthodontist’s plan. The total number of aligners will vary by the needs of each patient.

As with traditional braces, patients must wear retainers after their teeth reach new positions to let gum and bone grow and get used to the new positions.

Aligner Touch Ups

Are you one of the several people who had braces during their early teenage years but did not comply with wearing retainers and are now experiencing a relapse of the treatment? If your answer is YES, then we can definitely help you with clear aligner touch-ups.

A relapse happens when the bone and other structures do not stabilize after the orthodontic treatment, thus allowing teeth to shift back to their original positions or different positions. In these cases, re-treatment may be necessary. Dr. Rogers and Dr. Hamby usually use clear aligners to correct relapses, as they work particularly well for mild to moderate misalignments. before after orthodontic touch-up
