Maybe you had braces as a kid but notice your teeth shifting out of position. Maybe you’ve never had braces or worn a metal retainer and aren’t eager to start now. Using Clear Aligners to straighten teeth is a great option for people who don’t want visible hardware in their mouth, whatever their reason.
To learn more about SureSmile and to find out if clear aligner trays are right for you, keep reading below. At Pueblo West Neighborhood Dental and Implants, Dr. Ross offers several options for getting the smile of your dreams!
One of the main differences between clear aligners and traditional braces is SureSmile’s subtle appearance. Instead of being obvious, clear aligners are almost invisible and allow you to straighten your teeth while preserving a natural-looking smile. These aligners are made out of plastic and fit over your teeth, and they can be removed at your convenience.
Clear Aligners have many benefits when compared to normal braces. Metal braces can cut up your cheeks and tongue and, in extreme cases, cause tooth decalcification. With SureSmile, you avoid all of these risks.
Additionally, if you clench your jaw or grind your teeth, wearing SureSmile aligners means that you can easily swap them out for your mouthguard. The same goes for athletes who need to wear protective mouthguards.
The clear appearance of the aligners is a major factor for many people. Because clear aligners can be easily removed, patients with Sure Smiles can eat without restrictions and have an easier time maintaining their oral health routine.
Dr. Blaskovich plays a big role in your SureSmiles experience. At Pueblo West Neighborhood Dental and Implants, he will start you on clear aligners by creating custom-molded trays. Then, he monitors your progress and creates progressive trays until you’ve achieved the tooth placement that you want.
Most of our aligner patients take between three weeks and six months to achieve their desired results, but the exact timeline depends on your specific situation.
Dental clear aligners change as your teeth shift. That means that you will regularly get new Invisalign trays, and each one will slowly shift your teeth further into alignment. According to many of our patients, this gradual process makes Invisalign less painful than traditional orthodontic procedures.
Once your Invisalign treatment is completed, Dr. Blaskovich will fit you for a permanent retainer that you will wear to keep your teeth in place. Depending on your specific situation, you might need to wear this all day for the first few months, but eventually you can transition to wearing it only at night.
Are you ready for a smile you can be confident in? If you want straighter teeth, Invisalign might be right for you.
