Clear aligners are a new way to straighten teeth without metal wires or brackets. They work by using gradual force and moving your tooth in tiny steps until it is aligned correctly, just like traditional braces do!
At Trü Orthodontics in Fairfax, VA, we recommend using Trü Clear Aligners. It is a custom-made, clear aligner designed to replace the traditional metal wire or brackets; they’re easy and fast. You wear them all day long (roughly 20 hours), changing them weekly! The length of treatment depends on the severity of the oral condition – compliance is the key to success and completing treatment at the estimated length of time.
How Do They Work?
Clear aligner therapy is a treatment that helps to correct bad bites, crooked and misaligned teeth, as well as gapped or spaced teeth. Our orthodontists will use our advanced scanning technology to create a highly accurate digital impression of your mouth. Your aligners will then be designed to fit your individual needs in order to move the teeth into alignment. As you switch trays each week (the number of times may vary by case), the teeth will start relocating to their optimal position.
Advantages Of Trü Clear Aligners
There are many benefits to Trü Clear Aligners. They are made from smooth, clear plastic to give you a treatment that is comfortable and almost invisible in your smile. Your aligners are removable, allowing you to eat what you like, brush and floss normally. We highly recommend that you take proper care of the aligners by washing them regularly to prevent staining.
Brush Your Teeth Regularly
When you remove your aligners, whether for a snack or meal, make sure to brush your teeth. You might find that this increases the amount of time spent brushing throughout each day! This practice will keep the aligners clean as well as help you avoid bad breath or stained teeth.
