Clear Aligner Treatment for Los Angeles
The procedure of clear aligner treatment
Straighten your teeth without anyone knowing using clear, removable aligners.
Our clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and have proven as effective as traditional metal dental braces. They are quite soft and easy on the gums and teeth, making them a very comfortable form of treatment. The aligners are removable, allowing you to eat and drink what you want and brush or floss as needed, so you can smile more during treatment and after!
How are clear aligners fixed?
Most people are opposed to using clear aligners for orthodontic treatment due to the fact that they do not have enough information concerning this procedure. Lucky for you, clear aligner treatment is a simple procedure that may take only a single day to fit and adjust the aligners. However, our team must first conduct an examination before any treatment can begin.
Consultation and screening
During the consultation, our doctors will assess your dental situation in order to provide a systematic treatment plan.
For clear aligner treatment, we normally ensure that the patient’s dental health is completely healthy before starting the procedure. This means that if you have any decay or infections, the we will have to treat those first.
During the screening, our doctors use a special scanning machine to take the 3D scan of your mouth. The doctor will use this scan to determine how best to provide clear aligner treatment. At the Orthospaceship, we offer top-notch consultation services, and in most cases, we can start treatment on the day of consultation.
After getting the scans of your dental structure, our doctors will use them to design clear aligners that are suited to your specific dental issue. Designing the digital framework of the clear aligner treatment may take some time, and our orthodontists may have to schedule another appointment.
The orthodontist will let you see the digital image of the aligners for you to know whether they are suitable for you. If they are okay, the orthodontist starts on creating the clear aligners. Creating the clear aligners may take between two to four weeks. After they are ready, we will contact you.
Fitting the aligners
After getting the aligners from the dental lab, our doctors will help you fit them and show you how you can remove and place them. You can check on how comfortable they are and if they are restricting any jaw movement. If so, you can simply explain it to the doctor and get a better set of aligners designed for you.
The doctor may have to design another set of aligners for you later on, meaning you may have to go for dental checkups. Our doctors will advise you on how long you should have the aligners and the proper way of maintaining and taking care of them.
