Clear “Braces” Orthodontics
Family Dentist in Greer, SC
Orthodontics impacts your health, appearance, and more.
Crooked, unevenly spaced, or misaligned teeth are harder to keep clean. This makes them more prone to tooth decay and periodontal disease.
Straight, properly aligned teeth are easier to keep clean and provide a more attractive appearance. A straight, healthy smile helps to boost self-esteem, self-confidence, and your self-image.
If you suffer from crooked, uneven, or misaligned teeth, clear orthodontic aligners can help.
The length of your clear aligners treatment will depend on your individual plan. During your consultation with Dr. Simpson, we will discuss your options. Once you select your treatment, we will estimate its length.
There are factors that can affect the duration of your treatment. Some of these include:
- Early Orthodontic Intervention: If you had early intervention, some steps have already been completed. This may shorten the time you need for this treatment.
- Type of Treatment: Depending on your needs, you may have braces, elastics, aligners, or other options. Which treatment you receive will affect its length.
- Compliance: Following our instructions will allow your treatment to work more quickly.
At Crescent Family Dentistry, we offer advanced solutions for your treatment. Our practice is a leader in comfortable and accelerated orthodontics. Clear aligners are worn over the teeth and can be removed to allow you to eat, brush, and floss normally. They are comfortable, convenient, and easy to use.
Your clear aligners are custom-fabricated for your teeth. About every two to four weeks, you will change to a new, slightly straighter aligner.
Patients who straighten with clear aligners experience less pain, discomfort, and mouth sores than patients with traditional metal braces. You also have a lower risk of plaque buildup during treatment since you can remove aligners for proper brushing and flossing.
Dr. Simpson has chosen ClearCorrect aligners for use at Crescent Family Dentistry. ClearCorrect aligners are fabricated solely within the United States and are generally available for a lower cost than other leading aligner systems.
