Teeth Aligners

A perfect smile is one of many assets that can help you overcome a lot of challenges in life. But for those who are naturally not blessed with a straight teeth, choosing orthodontic treatment with a dentist or orthodontist is the safest way to achieve long term oral health. OrthoFX clear aligners can be a perfect treatment option for you. It is important to choose the right clear aligner company or else the treatment could be unpredictable. Consider the following factors items when choosing clear aligner treatment and doctor:

Comfort

One of the key reasons of the increasing popularity of clear aligners is its comfort level. Unlike metal braces, these don’t have wires and brackets leading to pricks and pains. But the best aligner is one that comes with no discomfort at all right from the start. FXTetra clear aligner, offered by OrthoFX, fits so effortlessly that the pressure on the teeth is 40% less than other similar products – but just as effective due to their advanced proprietary technology. 

Material

OrthoFX clear aligners are made from a proprietary material and almost invisible to the naked eye. The more clear the material used to manufacture the aligners, the better it is in terms of aesthetics. In addition, the higher the quality of the material also insures better stain resistance. Stained aligners are a setback as far as visibility is concerned. The OrthoFX FXTetra triple layer material is stain resistant and can be worn 7 days per stage vs. 14 days for many other industry brands. The trim and fit and flexibility of the FXTetra material also makes it easier to remove for eating, brushing and flossing.

Efficiency

Each set of clear OrthoFX aligners gently moves the teeth a little by gradually pushing them into the ideal position prescribed by your doctor. The process requires careful planning based on the original position of the teeth and the shape of the arch. The aligners are designed to fit the teeth according to their position at each stage. The custom made true-fit, is key to movement efficiency of the aligners.

Speed

The efficiency level of the aligner decides the speed of the treatment. Generally, each set of aligners is worn for two weeks. However, the FXTetra clear aligners at OrthoFX are worn for only one week at a time, which means more efficient tooth movement (and comfortable) in a much shorter time safely.

Safety

The most important factor that needs to be accounted for choosing the pathway of orthodontic treatment is safety. Both the brand of the aligners you choose, and having your treatment planned and monitored by a dentist or orthodontist. A flawed product can further damage the alignment of the teeth and affect overall oral health. It is important to choose aligners that are safe and FDA Cleared.

Only a licensed dentist or orthodontist is authorized to prescribe clear aligners to treat dental issues. For someone choosing clear aligners to straighten his/her crooked, ill-spaced teeth, it is important to have detailed consultation, exam and treatment plan of the procedure before you begin. Lack of knowledge, wrong information and inferior quality product could lead to more harm than good. OrthoFX has a network of licensed doctors that will provide in-person care, and tools to help monitor your treatment from home if you choose.
