What Are The Advantages of Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners are at the forefront of a growing trend in orthodontics which provides patients with more non-invasive treatment options. It is proven that custom clear aligners, with its modern technology, provide numerous benefits to patients which we will explore in this article. 

What Are Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners are used in full treatment, light treatment, minor tooth movement, relapse correction and final finishing of braces cases. The custom aligner allows for a customized treatment plan that can involve a combination of orthodontic treatments. This treatment plan is great for patients who don’t want to compromise the esthetics or function of their final outcome, but aren’t good candidates for aligner treatment alone. Combination treatment offers doctors the best of both worlds, giving them the ability to treat difficult malocclusions and esthetic problems quickly. Combination treatment usually involved about 6-10 months in braces followed by 2-4 months of clear aligner therapy.

Clear Aligners vs. Traditional Orthodontic Treatment

Clear aligner technology gives doctors a detailed 3D computer model of your teeth, helping them precisely plot your individual tooth movement. This isn’t like conventional orthodontics, relying on plaster models and bending wires by hand. That approach can sometimes result in round-tripping, where the bends in the metal are too small or too great and need to be adjusted down the road. Doctors can precisely position teeth with the minimum amount of movement necessary. This gives you fewer office visits, less discomfort and a shorter time in treatment compared to other orthodontic treatments.
