Clear Orthodontic Aligners
Dr. Fitch at Broad St Smiles proudly offers several options for Straightening Teeth with Clear Orthodontic Aligners.
Custom designed Clear Aligners have become an extremely effective and popular alternative to traditional braces. Offering comfort, convenience and virtual invisibility during treatment clear aligners use a series of precise, custom molded clear aligners to gradually move the teeth to their desired position. Since the aligners are practically invisible, the embarrassment and discomfort that comes with metal braces is eliminated. And because they are removable, you can take them out to eat, brush and floss, allowing you to maintain your oral health much easier.
Customized Clear Aligner treatment plans are developed using advanced orthodontic software to make sure they fit and move teeth precisely. They can successfully treat a wide variety of conditions including crowded teeth, widely spaced teeth, overbites, underbites and cross bites. From simple to complex there is a customized treatment option to suit every case.
Dr. Fitch offers several clear aligner alternatives including SureSmile, Clear Correct and Invisalign. Although treatment time varies considerably depending upon how much movement is necessary to achieve the desired result, aligners can often reposition teeth in a year or less. If you have previously had straight teeth and now they are starting to shift, express cases can treat your problem in less time. Usually treatment can be completed in 3 months.
The cost of Clear Aligners have come down in the last few years and are comparable to the cost of traditional braces for a full case and less for express cases.
Research has continued to show that straightening your teeth can actually improve your overall dental health significantly. Swollen & red gums are often the result of teeth that are crowded or too widely spaced which can be signs of periodontal disease. When teeth are straight, it allows you to clean your teeth and gums more effectively and helps to keep your tissue healthier. And a healthy mouth = a healthy body. So Clear Aligners not only give you a more beautiful smile, they can also give you a healthier smile. And here at Broad St Smiles our number one priority is giving our patients a healthy smile for life!
