Clear aligners are corrective dental devices that move your teeth into the proper position, much like traditional braces. However, these aligners are made of a soft, durable material that is more comfortable to wear and can straighten your teeth in less time than metal braces.
Dr. Hoang personalizes your clear aligner therapy plan to help improve the aesthetic of your smile and the health of your teeth. He uses the Invisalign® clear aligner system to help you achieve your desired results with more convenience and fewer visits to the office than with traditional braces.
To ensure your aligners fit snugly over your teeth, Dr. Hoang uses the iTero® 3D scan software to create them. The technology takes 3D scans of your mouth and teeth, and the in-house lab makes your aligners based on the scan results.
You can expect to wear the aligner 18-22 hours every day to get the best results. The clear material makes the aligner less noticeable in your mouth than braces. You can easily remove the liner when you brush your teeth and eat.
Dr. Hoang customizes a series of aligners based on the expected movement of your teeth. Typically, you wear an aligner for a week or two before changing it out for the next in the series.
Each aligner gently shifts your teeth closer to the proper position. The length of time you need to wear each aligner and the number of aligners Dr. Hoang makes for you depends on the condition you want to correct and the overall health of your teeth.
Clear aligner therapy is an effective and affordable option for straightening your teeth and correcting a number of common dental flaws.
After a full evaluation of your oral health, Dr. Hoang might recommend clear aligner therapy to address issues like:
Following your treatment with clear aligners, you will need to wear a retainer to keep your teeth in position. The Invisalign system uses the Vivera® retainer, which is durable and practically invisible when you fit it over your teeth.
