Think orthodontics is only for teenagers? Think again! Adult clear aligners are a type of orthodontic treatment specifically designed to help patients achieve healthy, attractive, Hollywood-worthy smiles.
Adult clear aligners are unlike traditional braces in that they are a flexible thermoplastic that’s nearly invisible. This means you can smile confidently without having to worry about brackets, wires, or rubber bands.
Because adult clear aligners are nearly invisible, they blend in with your smile, so most people won’t even know they’re there.
Aside from improving the physical appearance of your smile, adult clear aligners move your teeth into proper position, making chewing, speaking, and biting easier.
At RenovaSmiles, the team usually prescribes adult clear aligners to address minor and moderate orthodontic issues, including:
You might also benefit from adult clear aligners if you have gaps or spaces between your teeth.
At RenovaSmiles, the team offers several different types of adult clear aligners, including Invisalign®; each of the dentists on staff is a certified Gold Provider for Invisalign treatment.
The team also offers adult clear aligners for people who need retainers, with or without Invisalign treatment.
For example, if you previously had orthodontic work, but your teeth have shifted with age, you can get your perfect smile back again with adult clear aligners or keep your teeth in place with a retainer.
To determine if you’re a candidate for adult clear aligners, make an appointment at RenovaSmiles. Following an oral exam and review of your oral health history, your dentist can make treatment recommendations that align with your individual needs and budget.
Receiving adult clear aligners usually takes two separate appointments. At your first appointment, your RenovaSmiles provider does an oral exam, and they take impressions of your teeth and upload them into a program that maps out the step-by-step movements of your smile.
Your dentist sends this treatment plan to a laboratory that manufactures your first set of adult clear aligners. Every 2-3 weeks, you return to the RenovaSmiles office and change into a new set of aligners. Over time, these sets of aligners gradually straighten and improve the appearance of your smile.
If you’re in need of a retainer, the process involves an impression of your teeth and fabrication at a lab; the retainer keeps your teeth from shifting out of place for years to come.
