A dental aligner is a clear vinyl tray that is used to straighten teeth in certain select situations. We use a system called "Red, White and Blue".
Impressions of your teeth are taken in our office and formed into models. These models are then sent out to a dental lab that specializes in making the upper and lower dental aligners. Tooth movement is accomplished by using a series of three to five vinyl trays which, when worn consistently, move your teeth in stages.
Our office will schedule an appointment to deliver each dental aligner. You will receive one aligner a month during the estimated treatment time of approximately three to five months. This includes using the final dental aligner as your retainer to keep the teeth in place.
Please call our office today to schedule your clear aligner complementary initial exam appointment!
