What is Clear Aligners?

Clear Aligners is a teeth straightening technique that uses a series of customized, removable aligners made from a clear and durable material.

Nashville Smile Creations uses advanced 3D scanning technology to study the current positioning of your teeth. This technology also helps them predict how your teeth will move with each customized aligner. 

They then send the results of your scan to a dental laboratory that creates each aligner based on your specific treatment goals. There are no messy molds or painful dental work involved in creating your Clear Aligners treatment plan. 

Is Clear Aligners right for me?

Clear Aligners treatment is ideal for both teenagers and adults who want straighter teeth without the hassle of traditional braces.

Aligners are ideal for treating a range of common dental issues, including:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Gapped teeth
  • Crooked teeth

If you have good overall oral health and don’t want to invest time in using traditional metal braces, Clear Aligners technology can produce amazing results in less time.

How long do I wear the Clear Aligners?

To achieve optimum results, you should plan to wear your aligners 20-22 hours per day, but you can take them out to eat, drink, floss, and brush your teeth. You wear each new aligner for 1-2 weeks, as recommended by the team at Nashville Smile Creations.

Follow-up visits are necessary every 6-8 weeks to check the progress of your teeth movement.

Aligners are customized to fit perfectly in your mouth, eliminating pain and discomfort. 

While you may feel some pressure with each new aligner, the treatment is much more comfortable than traditional braces. You can expect your Clear Aligners treatment to last 6-18 months depending on the severity of your misalignment.

What are the benefits of Clear Aligners?

Clear Aligners is a painless, convenient way to straighten your teeth. Because aligners are clear, no one can tell you’re wearing them.

Other benefits of using Clear Aligners for straighter teeth include:

  • Easy maintenance and removal
  • No food limitations or restrictions
  • Fewer dental visits
  • No painful wires or brackets

Caring for the aligners is easy, too. You take them out and clean them daily using a gentle toothbrush to remove debris.
