ALIGNERS

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners offer an affordable and reliable solution to reposition teeth without compromising on aesthetics. These transparent oral devices are a popular alternative to traditional wire-based braces, providing effective results and convenience.

Key Insights on Clear Aligners:

– Clear aligners are made of solid polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), resembling mouth guards.

– They assist in correcting teeth arrangement and bite impairments.

– Clear aligners are removable, making them convenient for patients and reducing visual concerns.

Popular Teeth-Straightening Methods:

  1. Metal Braces: Wire-based braces made of stainless steel, known for their reliability and effectiveness.
  2. Ceramic Orthodontic Braces: Similar to metal braces but more aesthetically appealing due to tooth-colored ceramics.
  3. Lingual Braces: Braces placed on the back surface of the teeth for a discreet appearance.
  4. Clear Teeth Aligners: High efficiency and aesthetics, offering transparent plastic aligners for impressive results.
