Clear Aligners is a great option for patients who want a straight smile but don’t want to deal with traditional metal braces. Clear Aligners uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth over time. Using these clear, comfortable aligners, patients are able to straighten their teeth without the look, feel or inconvenience of traditional metal braces. No one will even be able to tell you’re wearing them, making this orthodontic treatment that much easier.
Clear Aligners are not only invisible, but unlike braces, they are also removable. With traditional metal braces, patients often need to adjust their eating habits to exclude hard, crunchy or chewy foods. However, because Clear Aligners can be removed at meal times, you can still enjoy your favorite foods like corn on the cob, popcorn and taffy. Just remember to brush and floss after you eat!

Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks. As aligners are replaced, teeth begin to shift into their desired position, moving gradually over time. For best results, it is recommended that aligners be worn for about 20 hours per day, and only removed while eating, brushing and flossing.
