Orthodontic Treatment with Clear Aligners

Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontics is a specialization in dentistry that helps straighten or reposition wrongly aligned or ill-spaced teeth. It improves your smile while also taking care of long-term oral health. Orthodontists use a number of appliances to treat dental problems, namely, metal braces, clear aligners, ceramic braces, retainers, etc. While traditional metal braces are most widely used, clear aligners have become more popular in recent years.

Clear aligners may work more efficiently due to a number of factors and considered major game-changers in teeth-straightening treatment. Read on to know more how orthodontic treatment is carried out with clear aligners:

The product

OrthoFX Clear aligners are nearly invisible, removable plastic trays or molds that are custom-made to fit the teeth to effectively and efficiently straighten them. The treatment eventually helps obtain ideal bite correction and improve overall oral hygiene.

The procedure

After an initial consultation with the doctor and gathering diagnostic records such as x-rays, photographs or digital scans of a patient’s teeth, mouth and face, the orthodontist digitally designs and customizes a series of aligners with OrthoFX. These aligners move the teeth by putting gentle pressure on them from either direction to create movement. The number of aligners required depends on the severity of a patient’s case.

The timeline

Each set of clear aligners have to be worn for 20-22 hours a day and is replaced by a new set every week. On average the treatment time takes anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. Changes are noticeable pretty early with the teeth moving a little to the corrected position with each set of aligners. 

The pros

The most important advantage to some of wearing clear aligners are the aesthetics. It is the best solution for those who are not willing to let the world know about their treatment, yet do not want to give up their social life. Clear aligners can be easily removed while eating, brushing teeth or using floss, which ensures no lapse in daily oral hygiene.   

The cons

As far as teeth alignment is concerned, clear aligners do not have many known disadvantages. However, it is always advised to consult an orthodontist or dentist for correct guidance before choosing it as a mode of treatment. 

The conclusion

Clear aligners are increasingly becoming a preferred choice to treat mild-to-moderately crowded or crooked or incorrectly aligned teeth for its aesthetics and ease of use.
