Orthodontic Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are almost invisible and a great treatment option for many orthodontic issues. We offer several state-of-the-art types of clear aligners to help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.

Clear aligners are a removable type of orthodontic appliance designed to replace traditional metal braces and wires.

Orthodontic clear aligners are plastic replicas of your teeth. Wearing them applies gentle pressure on your teeth, slowly repositioning your teeth and jaw to properly align and create a healthy and beautiful smile.

Orthodontic Treatment with Clear Aligners

Like traditional braces, aligners are designed to move teeth a little at a time. Before treatment begins, your dentist:

  • Examines your teeth and mouth
  • Takes diagnostic records (x-rays, photographs, and impressions or digital scans of your teeth)
  • Determines your diagnosis
  • Works within the aligner software to design your smile and plan the treatment process

Benefits of Clear Aligners

  • Discreet – Nearly invisible appliance
  • Removable – No dietary restrictions and easy to brush and floss
  • Comfortable – Fewer discomfort issues than traditional wires and brackets

Cost of Clear Aligners

Most single arch aligners start at $2500, including the retainer. For full mouth orthodontic cases, the cost generally ranges from $5000 to $7000 total for the treatment.

How long does it take for clear aligners to work?

The goal of clear aligners is a healthy bite – top and bottom teeth that fit together properly. Moving teeth is a complex process and needs start-to-finish supervision by a dental professional.

Most patients come in about every six-to-ten weeks.

A series of plastic aligners are created using your initial impressions or digital scans as the starting point. The total number of aligners will vary by the needs of each patient. It is recommended that aligners be worn 22 hours a day, or as prescribed.

Each set of aligners is worn for a week or two before moving on to the next set. Over time, teeth reach their ideal places, according to your personalized plan.
