Why Choose Chisholm Trail Dental Health for Clear Aligner Braces?

How Clear Aligner Braces Work

All braces work by shifting the teeth one way or another until they are in the desired position. Traditional braces do this by gluing metal brackets to your teeth and running a wire between them. This approach works, but many patients find metal braces either too uncomfortable or visually unappealing.

Clear aligner braces like ClearCorrect and Invisalign in Round Rock are far more comfortable and do not stand out visually in the smile. These systems use see-through plastic trays that are specifically designed to fit your smile at each stage of treatment. Moreover, their transparent nature makes them difficult to notice when worn; most people will not even know you are wearing braces.

Are Clear Aligners Right for You?

Most adults are great candidates for clear aligner braces. To determine if Invisalign or ClearCorrect is right for you, your cosmetic dentist in Round Rock will first need to perform a thorough evaluation of your smile. This will include a full exam, complete with digital X-rays and digital impression system to capture images of your smile. Once we’ve ensured you’re a good candidate, we’ll evaluate your orthodontic condition to see if clear braces are the best and most effective treatment for you. Some of the most common orthodontic issues they’re used to treat include:

Crowded Teeth

When teeth are sitting too close to each other, this causes an issue when trying to properly brush and floss your teeth. As a result, bacteria and food particles are left trapped and unable to be removed. This can cause decay and gum disease to develop over time. Without treatment, you could be faced with more extensive and expensive dental treatments to address certain issues (i.e. dental crown or filling for cavities, periodontal therapy for gum disease).

Fortunately, clear aligners can easily give your smile the space it needs to function without incurring additional problems. During your initial consultation with Dr. Asay, he will examine your smile and take impressions to ensure your aligners are created in a way that makes them comfortable for you to wear.

Gapped Teeth

Closing gaps between your teeth doesn’t just offer you cosmetic benefits. It also impacts your oral health. Having spaces between your teeth can create the perfect hideout for harmful substances such as plaque, bacteria, and food debris to hide in, all of which are responsible for the development of cavities and gum disease. By closing these areas, you can easily remove these substances and reduce your risk of oral health problems, making your smile healthier than before.

ClearCorrect and Invisalign can gently realign your teeth, eliminating these gaps and promoting a healthier smile. Whether you have one large gap between your two front teeth or several noticeable spaces between your other teeth, clear aligner braces can help even out your smile.

Bite Issues

A poorly aligned bite can cause years of damage and discomfort if left untreated. No matter the type of bite, if it does not align correctly, your teeth, gums, and jaw can reap the consequences, some of which can include:

Invisalign and ClearCorrect can correct bite issues with gentle, consistent force without any harsh tightening or wire irritation. We can design a custom treatment plan to help you overcome bite misalignment issues like:

Benefits of Clear Aligners

Understanding the Cost of Clear Aligners

No two mouths are exactly the same, and as a result, neither are any two Invisalign or ClearCorrect treatments. The total cost of your treatment will depend upon several factors, such as your age, the severity of your misalignment, and your dedication to wearing your clear aligners. Of course, the best way to determine how much you’ll end up paying is to visit your cosmetic dentist in Round Rock for a consultation!

Clear Aligner Braces FAQs

Do you have more questions about what life will be like while undergoing clear aligner braces treatment? These advanced orthodontic procedures have so much to offer, which is why we don’t want you to miss out. For your convenience, we’ve answered some of the most common questions we receive from our patients below so you can learn more.

Does It Hurt to Wear Clear Aligners?

Unlike metal brackets and wires that can become caught on your lips and oral tissues and cause irritation or wounds to develop, clear aligners are made from smooth and comfortable plastic. This means that you won’t have to carry around orthodontic wax with you just to ensure that you can speak without experiencing pain.

Some of our patients do notice that when they advance to their next set of aligners, they do feel some slight tenderness and discomfort. In order to combat this, we recommend switching to your new trays at night so you can sleep through a majority of the adjustment period.

How Long Does Clear Aligner Treatment Take?

Depending on the unique orthodontic issues you face, your treatment time can vary. The average clear aligner braces timeline is typically between eight and 14 months, but if you suffer from severe misalignment or bite problems, you may need to wear your trays for longer. Your cosmetic dentist in Round Rock will walk you through your entire treatment during your consultation and let you know what you can expect once we’ve examined your mouth.

Will Wearing Clear Aligner Braces Affect My Speech?

Just like any orthodontic treatment, you will need some time to get used to how your clear aligner trays feel and will go through a short adjustment period. During this time, you may notice that you develop a slight lisp. However, this will disappear within a couple of weeks of practice.

How Often Do I Need to Check In with My Dentist During Clear Aligner Treatment?

Just like with traditional braces, you will need to regularly visit your dentist in Round Rock for checkups during your clear aligner treatment. However, Invisalign and ClearCorrect checkup appointments typically only last for about 30 minutes, which is much shorter than checkups for traditional metal braces. We’ll assess the progress you’ve made and give you the next sets of trays in your series. This is also a great time to ask us any questions you may have about aligner maintenance.

Are There Restrictions to What I Can Eat with Invisalign or ClearCorrect?

Fortunately, because trays for ClearCorrect and Invisalign in Round Rock are removable, you won’t have to alter your regular diet out of fear of damaging them, like you would with traditional braces. All you have to do before you eat or drink anything besides water is take your aligners out of your mouth and store them in their hard protective case until you’ve finished. After you’ve eaten, brush your teeth and rinse your trays before you put them back in your mouth.
