How do clear aligners work?

Most orthodontic treatments work fundamentally the same, using physical force to reposition teeth and create a more aligned smile. However, the method by which those forces are applied varies depending on the treatment.

For example, traditional braces apply a bracket and wire system, but clear aligners in Tampa, FL, use a different approach. Through a series of custom-made trays, clear aligners work as you wear them for a defined period. Then, each tray slowly and gently repositions your teeth so that a new smile has emerged by your treatment’s end.

At North Tampa Dentistry, we are proud to supply ClearCorrect aligners. These are digitally made, invisible, and removable. This advanced precise aligner therapy treats several conditions, from simple to more complex cases. This system works as you wear each set of aligners for two weeks, then move to the next set in your unique series of aligners.

Benefits of Clear Aligners vs. Traditional Braces

When you select ClearCorrect aligners to straighten your teeth, you’ll receive numerous benefits over the traditional route. A few of these are:

  • Removable – Enjoy all the foods you like. You remove your aligners for those activities so they don’t interfere at all
  • Better oral health – You also remove your aligners for brushing and flossing, ensuring a more effective at-home routine
  • Comfortable – Clear aligners are made from a rigid but soft polymer and lack metal parts which may irritate your mouth
