Clear aligners are one of the most popular, convenient, and comfortable teeth straightening solutions for adults and teenagers. With proper orthodontic supervision, clear aligners can fix crooked, crowded, rotated, or gapped teeth.
Clear aligners are an excellent option for patients with mild or moderately crowded teeth. Patients with severe underbites, overbites, crossbites, or crowding problems may require a more involved treatment plan.
Invisible aligners are also the best option for adults and teenagers since their mouths are close to or done growing. Since a child’s teeth are still developing, they are not an ideal candidate for clear aligner treatment.
Deciding which orthodontic treatment option is best for you depends on several factors. The specialists at Hess Orthodontics will help you choose the best plan for you during your consultation.
With proper supervision from an orthodontist, clear aligners are an excellent alternative to traditional braces and offer several advantages.
Traditional braces can often make teens feel insecure, and many adults would prefer to avoid them, especially if they work in highly visible careers that emphasize making favorable first impressions. Clear aligners provide the same orthodontic corrections as metal braces but are discrete so you can feel confident throughout your treatment.
Clear aligners can be removed at a moment’s notice for eating, impromptu photo sessions, or brushing their teeth. Having the option to remove aligners allows patients to enjoy all their favorite foods compared to traditional braces that make particular foods and snacks challenging.
