If you suffer from crooked teeth, then you may be a perfect candidate for clear aligner treatment. Clear Aligners in Albuquerque, NM, are a series of removable mouthpieces that gradually shift the teeth into alignment. They are custom-made for your mouth and designed to correct minor misalignment issues. Each tray shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically and even rotating them as needed.
The most obvious benefit of choosing Clear Aligner in Albuquerque, NM, is that they are virtually invisible when worn. This makes them perfect for those adults who are still self-conscious about wearing braces in professional or social situations. They are also completely removable for cleaning and eating purposes. All you have to do is pop out your mouthpiece before you eat and clean it when you brush your teeth at night.
The plastic used for manufacturing the trays is flexible, so it allows for the comfortable movement of the teeth into the correct position over time. Treatment times may vary from patient to patient depending on the severity of their case and the amount of effort they put into wearing the tray on a regular basis. On average, Clear Aligner in Albuquerque, NM, takes about 12 weeks for patients to complete the 22 phases of treatment. However, results will vary from case to case.
Once treatment is complete, patients must maintain their newly aligned teeth by wearing a retainer every night. This will help prevent your teeth from shifting back into their original positions. Many patients choose to wear them indefinitely to prevent future orthodontic issues.
