Does Clear Aligner Work?

Dr. Carlos Garcia, Bright Smiles Dental Studio Image Of Does Clear Aligner Work?

Yes. A type of dental appliance known as a clear aligner tray, has been used to perfect the smiles of thousands of patients across the United States. As an orthodontic treatment, these removable, clear plastic trays are customized to your mouth. So, they help to perfect dental issues like misalignment, overbite and underbite, and gaps between teeth in a comfortable and precision manner.

It is important to set up a consultation with our dentist to determine whether these “braceless” orthodontics are right for you. Severe cases may require a different type of orthodontic treatment.

For aligner trays to work correctly, it is important that you maintain visits with our dentist and are diligent about wearing the trays as recommended. Since they are removable, many patients have been known to remove them, for eating or brushing, and they may forget to place the trays back in their mouths. Additionally, like retainers, patients have misplaced them. The greatest benefit that removable clear aligners provide is they are not visible in the mouth, and are easily maintained, which makes them a great option for our adult patients.

Call us today if you would like to set up a consultation or for more information. We are dedicated to creating a smile you can be proud of!

I am so relieved to have found Dr. Garcia and Bright Smiles. My husband had not been to the dentist in years and he was all smiles when we left. The staff is friendly and work with you on billing. The office uses the latest technology and Dr. Garcia puts you at ease by explaining everything clearly. They take a conservative approach which we appreciate. I highly recommend.
