La Quinta Clear Aligners
At Charming Smiles Dentistry, we are proud to offer Clear Aligners to our patients in La Quinta, CA. If you’ve been considering straightening your teeth, but are worried about the cost or appearance of metal braces, then you owe it to yourself to learn more about Clear Aligners.
What are Clear Aligners?
Clear aligners are a type of orthodontic treatment that uses clear plastic trays to gradually straighten your teeth. They are virtually invisible when worn, so they are a great option for adults or teens who want to straighten their teeth without drawing attention to their orthodontic treatment.
Each set of clear aligners is custom-made to fit your mouth and gently move your teeth into place. You will need to wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before moving on to the next set in the series. Depending on the severity of your misalignment, you may need to wear clear aligners for anywhere from six months to two years.
How do clear aligners work?
The clear aligner system uses a series of clear, nearly invisible plastic trays that progressively move your teeth into place. Unlike metal braces, there are no wires or brackets – which means there is very little discomfort involved. You simply wear each set of aligners for 20-22 hours per day, removing them only to eat and brush your teeth. Every two weeks or so, you’ll receive a new set of aligners that will continue the process of gradually moving your teeth into their new position.
Benefits of Clear Aligners over Traditional Braces
There are many benefits of clear aligners over traditional braces, including:
- They are practically invisible when worn, so no one will know you’re straightening your teeth unless you tell them!
- They are removable, so you can take them out to eat and brush your teeth without having to worry about special care instructions.
- They don’t require any special care beyond brushing and flossing; simply remove them and brush and floss as usual.
- They typically cost less than traditional braces.
- The treatment time is often shorter with clear aligners than with traditional braces.
- You won’t have to worry about food getting stuck in your braces or brackets coming loose.
