The Revolution of Clear Aligners
Clear aligners have revolutionized the field of orthodontics, offering a discreet and convenient alternative to traditional braces. These custom-made, removable trays are designed to gradually shift your teeth into their ideal positions. The technology has gained immense popularity due to its effectiveness, comfort, and the freedom it offers to patients. No longer do you have to deal with the aesthetic and functional limitations of metal braces; clear aligners provide a modern solution for a new generation.
How Clear Aligners Work
The process starts with a comprehensive consultation where we take digital scans of your teeth. These scans are used to create a series of custom aligners tailored to your specific needs. You'll wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before moving on to the next set in the series. The aligners are designed to exert gentle pressure on your teeth, gradually moving them into their desired positions. The treatment plan is closely monitored by Dr. Melanie Wang to ensure optimal results. One of the best features of clear aligners is their removability, allowing you to eat, drink, and maintain oral hygiene with ease.
