Clear Aligners Offered At RockCenter Orthodontics – Upper East Side
A Simple And Aesthetic Alternative To Braces
Using gradual force, clear aligners gently move teeth into alignment without the use of metal wires or brackets. Clear aligners are made with very strong plastic material that is fabricated specifically to fit the patient’s teeth. As treatment progresses, the patient switches through a series of aligners, each one bringing the teeth closer to their correct alignment. It is recommended that the patient wear the aligners for twenty hours each day. New aligners are switched out approximately every two weeks.
What Are The Advantages Of Clear Aligners?
Clear aligners are extremely simple to keep clean, which makes it easier to maintain healthy gums and teeth. They are less likely to irritate gums and cheeks than brackets and wires. They prevent wear and tear on your teeth from tooth grinding. Best of all, they are removable, which means there is no banned foods list and the patient can easily brush and floss as usual!
