About Teeth Aligners
Quite a few individuals did not have the need or weren't able to wear braces during adolescence, but they now experience some spacing or crowding problematic areas that keep them from attaining a straight, beautiful smile. Clear teeth orthodontic aligner trays are uniquely designed covers for the teeth made from invisible acrylic, and sometimes plastic material that effectively moves teeth into alignment. Using stages of aligners over a number of months, clear teeth aligners effectively straighten moderately crowded teeth and spacing irregularities for straighter, healthier teeth. Invisible aligner trays are often preferred by adults over traditional visible straightening methods since they are unnoticeable and can be set aside for brushing, flossing, and eating. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Crystal Lake in Crystal Lake, IL explain teeth straightening recommendations, including clear teeth aligners during regular cleanings.
