Traditional braces and their variations are a reliable, go-to treatment option for simple, moderate, and complex orthodontic cases. The team at The McLean Orthodontist can explain the different types of braces available and help you choose the best one for you:
Wanting something a bit more subtle? Our clear aligner options gradually move your teeth with a series of custom-made clear plastic trays that you can remove when you eat and brush your teeth. You wear the aligners every day and progress to the next set of aligners weekly or as otherwise instructed by your orthodontist. The total number of aligners needed to complete your treatment will vary based on your smile’s needs.
There are many advantages to choosing clear aligners as your orthodontic treatment modality, such as: virtually invisible, more comfortable, more hygienic and easy to keep your teeth clean, removable for eating, brushing, and flossing, quick, simple check-up appointments, no emergency visits for broken brackets and wires
At any age, the team at The McLean Orthodontist can help you achieve straighter teeth with clear aligners. A simple, easy digital scan of your teeth creates an accurate 3D model of your teeth to custom-design your treatment and map out precise, step-by-step tooth movement. With this technology, you can see exactly how your teeth will move and preview your simulated treatment outcome.
