If you are an adult with misaligned teeth, you probably regret not straightening your teeth as a teenager. No worries! It’s never too late to achieve a beautifully straight smile. Buscemi Family Dentistry offers clear aligner therapy, a widely favored orthodontic option for those uncomfortable with traditional metal braces.
Under the supervision of Dr. Vincent Buscemi, clear braces could be the answer you’ve always wanted for a straight smile. Take the first step towards a beautiful smile by scheduling an appointment with our Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, office.
All potential clear aligner users must visit an experienced dentist like Dr. Buscemi. The dentist evaluates your teeth and bite to ensure clear aligner therapy is the best treatment for your case. We supervise your treatment from start to finish to ensure you achieve your desired outcome with precision and safety.
To complete treatment, you’ll need about 18-30 aligners, but these can be more or less depending on the case’s complexity. You’ll wear the aligners for 20-22 hours daily, only removing them when eating or cleaning your teeth. Also, you should wear the aligners for two weeks before switching to the next set. Clear aligners move your teeth gradually, week by week, and within 12-18 months or less, you’ll achieve the desired outcome.
Invisible aligners fit your teeth like a glove. Clear aligners assert gentle pressure on the teeth to move them into a new, straighter position. Clear braces not only straighten teeth but also resolve malocclusion issues (like overbites and crossbites) to achieve a healthy bite.
Some notable advantages of clear aligner treatment include:
As clear braces work to shift your teeth to a new alignment, it’s normal to experience some discomfort during the initial days. It means your treatment is working, and your teeth are moving to a new position. This discomfort is easily manageable using pain medications. Also, you may experience speech changes as your mouth adjusts to the trays. The reassuring news is that these discomforts subside after a few days.
Having a beautiful smile instantly boosts your confidence, which translates into other areas, such as career, social, and dating life. Invisible aligners can help you achieve the smile you’ve always pictured in your dreams.
