What Are Clear Aligners?
Clear aligners are custom orthodontic devices that gradually move your teeth to the correct position. Unlike traditional braces, aligners are made of clear, BPA-free plastic material that makes them virtually invisible when worn. This feature makes clear aligners ideal for a discreet smile-straightening experience.
At One Love Orthodontics, we use advanced 3D imaging technology to create a digital model of your teeth. Based on this model, we create a series of custom-made aligners you'll wear for a specific period. Each aligner makes minor adjustments to the position of your teeth until they are aligned correctly.
The Clear Aligner Difference
Clear aligners are made of a patented thermoplastic material called SmartTrack. This material is comfortable, flexible, and effective in moving teeth. Unlike traditional braces that use metal wires and brackets, clear aligners use clear plastic, making them virtually invisible.
SmartTrack material is free from BPA, BPS, latex, and gluten, making it a safe and comfortable option if you're allergic to these materials. Clear aligners are also easy to clean and maintain, so you can keep them looking new throughout your treatment.
Our Aligner Process
The clear aligner treatment process starts with a consultation with Dr. Dayan at our Brooklyn office. During your consultation, we'll evaluate your teeth and discuss your treatment goals.
If Dr. Dayan decides that clear aligners are the right option for you, we'll take a 3D scan of your teeth and create a custom treatment plan based on your specific needs.
Once your custom aligners are ready, you will wear them for approximately 20-22 hours daily. You will switch to a new set of aligners every one to two weeks as your teeth gradually move into the correct position.
Your orthodontist Dr. Dayan will monitor your progress regularly to ensure your treatment is on track.
The Benefits of Clear Aligners
There are several benefits of using clear aligners to straighten your teeth. These include:
- Discreet Appearance: Clear aligners are virtually invisible, so you can straighten your teeth discreetly.
- Comfortable Treatment: Clear aligners are made of a smooth, flexible plastic material that is comfortable to wear.
- Removable Devices: Clear aligners are removable, meaning you can take them out when eating, brushing, or flossing.
- Effective Care: Clear aligners use advanced 3D imaging technology to create a customized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
