The Benefits Of Clear Aligners
Clear aligners are a popular choice for people who want to improve their smile with a discreet treatment. There are many benefits of using clear aligners, including:
- Comfort: Clear aligners are made of plastic and are much more comfortable than traditional metal braces.
- Convenience: Clear aligners can be removed while eating, brushing teeth, and flossing which makes them convenient to use.
- Nearly invisible: Since clear aligners are virtually undetectable when worn, they provide a discreet orthodontic experience.
- Less maintenance: Clear aligners require fewer trips to the dentist and fewer adjustments than traditional braces.
- Improved oral hygiene: Since clear aligners are removable, it is much easier to clean teeth while wearing them. This helps improve oral hygiene and reduces the risk of cavities and gum disease.
If you are looking for an easy and discreet orthodontic experience, clear aligners may be the best option for you.
The Process Of Clear Aligners
Dr. Sekhon takes a multi-step approach to comprehensive dental care, including determining if clear aligners would be a good fit.
- Schedule a consultation: Dr. Sekhon’s initial examination is not only a deep dental check but also includes detailed head-and-neck scans of the jaw joint and lymph nodes to conduct an oral cancer screening. For each individual patient, she crafts a personalized treatment plan based on their unique goals and needs before providing ongoing maintenance procedures throughout future appointments. Based on her expertise in dentistry, Dr. Sekhon will craft your care with precision for the overall longevity of oral health!
- 3D digital impressions: Dr. Sekhon uses advanced 3D digital imaging technology (Itero) to create a “digital” imprint of your teeth — meaning no more enduring wearing and uncomfortable dental casts made with materials that harden within the mouth! Additionally, this enables Dr. Sekhon to easily plan out your clear aligner therapy and present you with an example of what kind of radiant smile awaits you once treatment is done.
- Fitting your trays: After your digital impressions are taken, a series of clear aligners will be created specifically for the unique shape of your teeth. Dr. Sekhon and her team will fit you with each aligner tray to ensure the most comfortable and effective treatment possible.
- Wear your aligners regularly: Clear aligners, while removable, are only effective if they are worn for 20-22 hours every day. You’ll be able to take them out to brush and floss your teeth, as well as eat and drink what you like, but they must be worn at all other times. Gradually, your teeth will begin to shift into proper alignment as you rotate aligner trays every week or two.
- Monitoring progress: During follow-up appointments, Dr. Sekhon will track your progress and adjust the aligners as needed. She will also provide you with tips on how to take care of your trays, as well as advice on eating and cleaning teeth properly while wearing clear aligners.
