Why should I choose clear aligner therapy?
Clear aligner therapy is an alternative to traditional braces that uses custom-made dental appliances to gradually straighten your teeth without the clunky, uncomfortable metal brackets. The aligners are made of clear thermoplastic material, providing a discreet look that is nearly invisible when worn. This makes clear aligner therapy an attractive option for those who are looking for a way to straighten their teeth without the visible appearance of traditional braces. If you are struggling with crowded teeth or gaps, clear aligner therapy may be the right choice for you.

The Clear Aligner Therapy Treatment Process
At your initial consultation, your dentist will assess whether clear aligner therapy is a suitable option for you. The first step is examining your oral health to detect any gaps or crowding and check that your gums are healthy enough for treatment. Additionally, you will discuss your smile goals with your dentist and together determine a treatment plan that is tailored to meet your specific needs and lifestyle.
Impressions or Digital Imaging
Next, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth and bite using digital imaging technology or traditional molds. After the impressions are made, your dentist will review them for accuracy and make any necessary adjustments before sending them off to our trusted dental lab. At the lab, skilled technicians will craft your first few sets of aligners to precisely fit your teeth and guide them toward the desired position.
Fitting & Next Steps
After we receive your clear aligners, you will return to our office, where your Mesa dentist will carefully check their fit and make any necessary adjustments. You will receive detailed instructions on how to wear and take care of your new aligners. Most patients will wear each set for approximately 2 weeks, and at least 20-22 hours per day. About every 6 weeks, you will return to our office to pick up your next few sets of aligners. During those visits, your dentist will check to ensure that your smile is progressing as planned.
