At Arete Dental Studio, we offer clear aligners as an alternative to traditional braces for both teens and adults. Clear aligners are a discreet and comfortable option for those seeking orthodontic treatment. Made from a clear, smooth plastic material, these aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed for eating and cleaning.
Our team uses advanced 3D scanning technology to create a customized treatment plan for each patient. The aligners are then made specifically for your teeth to gradually shift them into their desired position. Treatment time varies depending on your individual orthodontic needs, but most patients see results in 6 to 18 months.
To achieve the best results, clear aligners should be worn for 22 hours a day, including while sleeping. You can remove them for eating and cleaning, but it’s important to wear them consistently to achieve the desired outcome.
Yes, clear aligners are an effective orthodontic treatment option for many patients. They can address a range of orthodontic issues, including crowding, spacing, and bite issues. However, the effectiveness of the treatment ultimately depends on your individual orthodontic needs.
To clean your clear aligners, gently brush them with a soft-bristled toothbrush and water. It’s important to avoid using hot water, as this can warp the plastic material. If your clear aligners become discolored or develop a buildup of bacteria, a dental cleaning product like Polident can be used to restore their cleanliness.
The cost of clear aligners varies depending on your individual orthodontic needs. However, they may be comparable in cost to traditional braces. Our team at Arete Dental Studio can provide you with an estimated cost during your first appointment. Additionally, many insurance plans cover the cost of orthodontic treatment, and we offer flexible payment plans to help make clear aligners more affordable for our patients.
Choosing clear aligners offers many benefits, including a discreet and comfortable treatment option, the ability to remove the aligners for eating and cleaning, and shorter treatment times compared to traditional braces. Our team at Arete Dental Studio is committed to providing our patients with the most advanced and comfortable orthodontic options available, and clear aligners are an excellent option for those seeking a more convenient and discreet treatment option.
