Clear aligners, also known as invisible aligners, are a type of treatment that corrects misaligned or crooked teeth. They are a virtually invisible and removable alternative to braces designed by keeping in mind the convenience to the patient.
Aligner trays are custom-built according to the condition of the patient’s teeth misalignment (malocclusion).
Clear aligners, can treat a variety of different teeth problems like crowded or overlapped teeth, overbites, underbites, a diastema, open bite, and misaligned primary (baby) teeth for children between 6and 10 years of age.
The procedure of orthodontic treatments
Orthodontic treatments involve different types of appliances used to retrain muscles, move teeth slowly, and affect your jaw’s growth by placing gentle pressure on your teeth and jaw.
During the consultation, your orthodontist will discuss your case in detail to determine whether your treatment involves fixed or removable appliances. Depending on how severe your situation is, your orthodontist will advise you on the right kind of orthodontic treatment for your teeth. A customized treatment plan is designed by your orthodontist by taking X-rays, pictures, and impressions of your teeth.
