About Teeth Aligners
Some adults didn't need or weren't able to get braces as a child, but they may still have some spacing or crowding issues that prevent them from having a straight, attractive smile. Clear teeth aligners are custom made covers for the teeth manufactured with clear acrylic, and sometimes plastic material that gently alters teeth into their proper position. Using a series of aligners over 1 - 2 years, clear teeth aligners can correct moderately crowded teeth and spacing problems for straighter, healthier teeth. This type of orthodontics are somewhat preferred by adults over traditional metal braces since they are unnoticeable and can be taken out for brushing, flossing, and eating. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Northcross Village in Huntersville, NC can go over teeth straightening options, including clear teeth aligners during regular dental exams.
What to Expect
Every set of clear aligners are custom made depending on the individual's current teeth position. Each tray of aligners are created based on impressions, X-rays, and images. The patient will start off with 3 - 4 sets of aligners at their appointment and our dentists will evaluate that the initial set fits as they should so that adjustments can be made. Our clients should wear their aligners as often as possible. The aligners should be taken out for eating and brushing. After several weeks, new aligners will be given during a short appointment at DentalWorks - Northcross Village.
The amount of time that an individual has to wear each set of aligners will change based on the unique needs of each person. The number of trays needed is normally discussed by our dentists at the consultation. the aligners will be worn consistently until the teeth are in proper alignment. A complete exam at DentalWorks - Northcross Village will be given at each appointment so that the progress 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 retainer will be set on the teeth for lasting results.
Based upon the patient's dental insurance, all or some of the clear teeth aligners may be covered. Our team at DentalWorks - Northcross Village will communicate with the patient's dental insurance provider to validate their benefits and provide a better cost of the patient's expected fees. Dental clients who do not have insurance coverage for teeth straightening treatment, may evaluate DentalWorks - Northcross Village's various payment considerations.
