These aligners are an alternative to treat teeth alignment problems without having to wear braces. There is no upper age for treatment, the minimum age limit being 14 years.
These aligners are transparent and hence invisible. Most of the patients with teeth malalignment, especially adults do not want to wear braces due to pain, irritation, discomfort and particularly due to social inhibitions. If such is your case, this is the right choice for you. They also offer predictable results visualization even before the treatment begins.
Getting started with the treatment:Using your records (impressions, photos and X-rays), a complete treatment plan is formulated. Once completed, the patient is able to preview the projected results of the treatment in "treatment set-up,"- a computer representation of your teeth before and after treatment.
Only when the patient is satisfied with the projected results, the actual process of fabrication begins. The technology uses latest digital technology to craft the aligners with highest precision.
Invisible: These aligners are made of FDA approved transparent medical grade plastic, made by RaintreeEssix, Inc. USA and hence virtually invisible.
Traditional braces (metal) are normally associated with unattractive appearance. Braces compromise oral hygiene by making it more difficult to brush and floss. These problems can result in tooth decay and periodontal damage if meticulous hygiene is not followed.
Moreover, once bonded to teeth, the traditional braces cannot be removed if the patient wants, for certain social events and functions.
