If you have slightly crooked or misaligned teeth, our skilled dentist may recommend clear aligner orthodontic treatment to straighten your smile! Clear aligners are an excellent option for patients who need minor tooth movement and are interested in a highly discreet treatment. To learn more about clear aligner treatment in Lacey Spring, Alabama, and to set up your consultation at the office of Catharine Willis DMD, please contact our office at (256) 498-3570.
Clear aligners are a popular choice for adult and teenage patients. Unlike traditional orthodontics, they rely on a series of thin plastic aligners. Each set of aligners makes small changes to the position of your teeth, gradually moving them into their proper positions. In addition to being nearly invisible, clear aligners are also very comfortable. Each aligner is computer-generated and custom-designed specifically to fit your smile, and your aligners are removeable, enabling you to eat, brush, and floss with ease.
Clear aligners may be used to treat the same orthodontic problems as braces, including:
- Crooked and crowded teeth
- Bad bites (overbites, underbites, crossbites, and open bites)
- Teeth that are gapped and spaced
We recommend that you clean your aligners often. As they are made of clear plastic, they can cause your teeth to appear stained, gray, yellowed, or otherwise discolored when dirty.
