About Teeth Aligners
Some adults did not require or weren't able to have braces in their youth, but they now have some spacing or crowding problems that do not allow them to have a straight, attractive smile. Clear teeth straightening trays are tight fitting covers for the teeth created with see through acrylic, and sometimes plastic material that delicately alters teeth into a straighter look. Using various sets of aligners over a specified course of time, clear teeth aligners are able to transform moderately crowded teeth and spacing issues for straighter, healthier teeth. Clear aligners are somewhat preferred by adults over traditional orthodontics since they are unnoticeable and can be removed for brushing, flossing, and eating. Our dentists at Village Elm Dental Care in Frisco, TX discuss teeth straightening alternatives, including clear teeth aligners during regular appointments.
What to Expect
Each tray of clear aligners are uniquely fitted depending on the individual's present teeth alignment. Each tray of aligners are made based on impressions, X-rays, and images. The patient will start off with 3 - 4 sets of trays at their appointment and our dentists will evaluate that the initial set fits as they should so that modifications can be made. Our clients need to wear their aligners as much as possible. The trays should be removed for brushing and flossing, as well as eating. Within a few weeks, a new set of trays will be provided during a short appointment at Village Elm Dental Care.
The number of weeks that an individual has to wear each phase of aligners will change based on the unique needs of each person. The estimated timeframe needed is normally discussed by our dentists at the consultation. the aligners will be worn daily until the teeth are straight. A complete exam at Village Elm Dental Care will be given at each appointment so that the straightening can be assessed. Our dentists will provide feedback to patients so they have a full understanding of the ongoing progress. After the teeth are straight, a permanent retainer device will be set on the teeth for permanent results.
Depending on the patient's dental insurance, all or some of the orthodontic aligners may be paid for. Our team at Village Elm Dental Care will communicate with the patient's insurance contact to validate their benefits and provide an accurate cost of the patient's expected fees. Dental clients who do not have insurance coverage for orthodontics treatment, may evaluate Village Elm Dental Care's different payment considerations.
