About Teeth Aligners
A lot of patients did not require or weren't able to have braces in their youth, but they now have some spacing or crowding problems that do not allow them to have a straight, striking smile. Clear teeth straightening trays are tight fitting covers for the teeth created with see through acrylic, and sometimes plastic material that delicately straightens teeth into a straighter look. Using various sets of aligners over a specified course of time, clear teeth aligners are able to transform moderately crowded teeth and spacing issues for straighter, healthier teeth. Clear aligners are usually preferred by adults over traditional orthodontics since they are unnoticeable and can be removed for brushing, flossing, and eating. Our dentists at Parkway Dental in Missouri City, TX discuss teeth straightening alternatives, including clear teeth aligners during regular appointments.
What to Expect
Each tray of clear aligners are uniquely fitted depending on the individual's present teeth alignment. Each tray of aligners are made based on impressions, X-rays, and images. The patient will leave our office with 3 - 4 sets of trays at their appointment and our dentists will confirm that the initial set fits as they should so that modifications can be made. Our clients need to wear their aligners as much as possible. The trays should be removed for brushing and flossing, as well as eating. Within a few weeks, a new set of trays will be provided during a scheduled appointment at Parkway Dental.
The number of weeks that an individual has to wear each phase of aligners is tailored based on the unique needs of each person. The estimated timeframe needed is always discussed by our dentists at the consultation. the aligners will be worn daily until the teeth are straight. A thorough analysis at Parkway Dental will be given at each appointment so that the straightening can be assessed. Our dentists will consult with patients so they have a full understanding of the ongoing progress. After the teeth are straight, a permanent retainer device will be set on the teeth for permanent results.
Depending on the patient's dental insurance, a specific amount of the orthodontic aligners may be paid for. Our insurance coordinators at Parkway Dental will communicate with the patient's insurance contact to gain insight into their benefits and provide an accurate cost of the patient's expected fees. Customers who do not have insurance coverage for orthodontics treatment, may evaluate Parkway Dental's different payment opportunities.
