How do clear aligners work?

Clear aligners are an innovative alternative to traditional, fixed orthodontics like metal braces. Clear aligners are custom-made plastic trays that fit over your teeth, similar to whitening trays. Over time as the patient wears clear aligners, the trays gently engage the teeth and gradually move them into the desired position.

Numerous concerns can be remedied with clear aligners, including:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Open bites
  • Crossbites
  • Gaps and uneven spacing between teeth 
  • Crooked or twisted teeth 
  • Overlapping or crowded teeth

Clear aligners are virtually invisible, making them a desirable option for teens, adults, and professionals who don’t want metal brackets and wires to detract from their smile. 

Clear aligners are also removable, so you don’t have to worry about dietary or oral hygiene restrictions; you can eat whatever you’d like and brush and floss like normal. With clear aligners, you can achieve straighter, more symmetrical teeth and a more aligned bite.
