Clear aligner trays can be used for mild to moderate tooth movement in order to achieve the desired alignment, function and smile.
Clear aligners are used in place of traditional metal orthodontics, to straighten teeth without wires and brackets. Custom trays apply pressure to gradually move the teeth and reshape the surrounding bone.
The process is easy and affordable. The doctor takes an impression, or scan, of the mouth, and a set of custom correcting aligners is created. The patient wears the aligners day and night, only removing them to brush and eat. The trays are changed at intervals as teeth move until treatment is complete.
