Improve Your Appearance With Clear Teeth Aligners

Traditional metal braces have been around for a long time because they work well in a wide variety of applications. They can be used to straighten teeth for many orthodontic patients when other methods don’t work. However, no one likes the idea of having metal in their mouth for two or three years if it’s not necessary.

If you’ve been looking for an alternative to metal braces, you just found it. Using clear teeth aligners, the team at Above the Gate Dentistry can correct your misaligned teeth and give you more confidence in a shorter timeframe.

Treatment with aligners is simple:

  • At your initial consultation, we can give you an estimate of your treatment time and cost.
  • Your dentist will make your aligners using the advanced technology of our 3-D printing system. We’ll scan your mouth with a digital scanner, create models of your aligners on a computer, then send the specifics to our printer to craft your aligners. You’re assured of the highest quality and best fit because everything is handled on-site.
  • You’ll wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before moving on to the next set. You’ll visit us every six weeks or so for progress checks. The aligners move your teeth into their proper place using gentle pressure.
  • When you’re done with the last set, you’ll have your new smile and brand-new confidence. Although each patient is different, many of our clear aligner patients complete their treatment in as few as 12 months.

Your aligners will fit comfortably over your teeth. As they are made from smooth plastic, there’s no uncomfortable metal to poke the sensitive tissue inside your mouth. Feel free to remove the aligners at any time for eating, drinking, brushing, and special occasions. To keep your treatment time short, however, keep them in place for at least 20-22 hours each day.
