There are many adults out there who feel as though the opportunity to improve the health and appearance of their crooked, crowded, or gapped smile, has long since passed them by. That couldn’t be further from the truth. And, get this: not only can our Quakertown, PA dentist’s office guide your transformational journey, we can take your smile to new levels without subjecting you to harsh metal brackets and wires for 2-3 long years. You see, Dr. Roeder is certified to place invisible orthodontic aligners known as ClearCorrect and many of our post-adolescent patients have had real success correcting alignment and bite problems through this treatment program. Keep reading to hear more about what we can do, and then be sure to follow up and schedule your next appointment at Dream Dentistry & Sleep Care.
What Are ClearCorrect Aligners All About
As we already alluded to in the introduction, our forward-looking short-term orthodontics system gets the job done using a series of custom-made soft plastic retainers that slip directly over your teeth for a comfortable fit throughout the duration of your treatment.
After you have been identified as a good candidate for these clear aligners, Dr. Roeder or Dr. Kulp will do a complete workup and diagnosis of your alignment and bite problems, and prescribe a series of clear aligners to correct and straighten your teeth.
Each aligner tightly molds to your teeth, exerting gradual pressure to shift and rotate your teeth into alignment. Easy enough, right? But wait, it gets better.
The Benefits Are Obvious, The Gear Is Not
Here’s the deal: you will absolutely need to wear your aligners most of each day for several weeks at a stretch, and then start another one to keep the process moving in the right direction. The cool thing is that you can do this on your own, so there is no need for monthly in-office adjustments like conventional braces would require. That saves you the hassle of taking time away from work and other interests along the way.
What’s more, you can actually remove your clear aligners for eating and cleaning purposes, which makes for a much more enjoyable experience than treatments involving permanently affixed metal hardware. This program also eliminates the need for special tools and dietary restrictions. Eat whatever you want (within reason) whenever you want!
In the end, your cumulative treatment time should take somewhere between 10 and 20 months, depending on the severity of your issues. And no one will ever know about the improvement project in your mouth until the process is complete and you emerge with a gorgeous new grin.
Clear Orthodontic Aligners Might Just Save Your Smile
As the first step of your journey, you must arrange for a visit to our office so that we can evaluate your situation and map out a plan that makes sense for your needs. Our orthodontic aligners have been very effective for folks with minor crowding, gaps between their teeth, and mild alignment problems. It is our sincere hope that they will be just the right fit for your current needs and budget, because we have seen how these type of improvements can seep into every other aspect of a patient’s life.
FYI: some patients who have more severe alignment and bite problems, or have very wide spaces between their teeth, would likely benefit from a more complex treatment with traditional orthodontics, and if we should feel that way about you, we’d be happy to refer you to a program that is a better fit.
