Why Clear Aligners?
Clear aligners are also known as invisible aligners. They correct misaligned bites and teeth. These aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed. They offer convenience and flexibility. If you are wondering Why Clear Aligners? You have come to the right place, The Smile Store can answer all your questions.
Aligner trays made from BPA-free plastic are custom-made to fit each patient. The tray moves the teeth discreetly in small increments.
Aligner trays should be replaced every 2 to 3 weeks until your teeth are straightened and aligned. The severity of your teeth misalignment (also known as malocclusion) will determine how many trays you require. Some aligners don’t touch your gums. Some aligners do not touch your gums at all.
What can aligners fix for bite issues?
Clear aligners may be used to correct the following alignment problems, depending on the brand.
- Crowded teeth (overlapping)
- Overbite (upper front teeth that overlap with lower front teeth)
- Underbites (lower front teeth that overlap with upper front teeth)
- Diastema is a condition that leaves small or large gaps between teeth.
- Open bites are a rare form of malocclusion in which the front upper and lower teeth face outwards and don’t touch each other when the mouth is closed.
Phase I orthodontic treatment for misaligned primary (baby), teeth; this treatment is available to children aged 6-10 years.
What is the difference between In-Office and At-Home Aligners?
Clear aligners come in two varieties:
You don’t need to see an orthodontist for treatment. At-home aligners can also be used with a home impression kit. Candid aligners can be less expensive than in-office options and typically cost under $4,000.
For in-office clear aligners, you will need to see an orthodontist regularly during treatment. This higher-quality care can mean that the clear aligners may be a little more expensive.
Home impressions (teeth straightening kit) are a way to start the orthodontic treatment process at home. This is called at-home aligner therapy. These treatments are more affordable, easier to use, and more convenient than traditional aligners such as Invisalign Aligners. The Smile Store offers them from as low as $3995. You can get started today with Candid Clear Aligners + a Free Phillips Zoom Teeth Whitening kit from The Smile Store.
Direct-to-consumer aligners (DTC), are also available at home. The treatment is done remotely and you don’t need to visit the orthodontist to have a consultation. Instead, you will order a home impression kit and take them yourself. Then, they will be sent back to confirm your candidacy. DTC aligners are only able to correct minor to moderate misalignments of the teeth. You may have crooked or small gaps between your teeth. Clear Braces and Traditional Braces offer better solutions for more complicated issues.
A few leading clear aligner brands offer an in-person scan and regular maintenance. In-office aligners provide comprehensive care, but at a higher cost. The average cost of the entire treatment is $5,500. It can cost as much as $8,000 for the whole procedure. To begin treatment, you will need to see an orthodontist. Routine check-ups are required every 8 weeks. This varies. The Smile Store has locations nationwide and offers in-office treatment at a more affordable cost.
