Using aligner therapy in-office, allows Dr. Kaufman complete control over complicated, multidisciplinary cases by performing surgical implant therapy, moving the teeth into proper position and completing treatment with excellent restorations. Clear aligners are an excellent option for most cases, however, Dr. Kaufman will recommend an orthodontist for cases that are more complicated and require the intervention of another specialist. Clear aligners are a great option for patients who want to avoid bulky and unsightly metal braces. This orthodontic option is especially popular among teenagers and adults who are looking for virtually invisible treatments. When you visit our office for your initial consultation, our prosthodontist will examine your mouth and discuss your smile goals with you to determine if clear aligners are the best treatment for you.
Clear aligners are made from smooth, thin plastic and are custom-designed and computer-generated to fit your smile perfectly. Not only are they very discreet, they are also very comfortable. Your aligners are removable, allowing you to eat all of your favorite foods as well as brush and floss with ease. You will switch to a new set of aligners every few weeks as your treatment progresses. Each new set of aligners will make small changes to the alignment of your teeth, gently guiding them into their proper positions to give you a straight, healthy and beautiful smile.
As your aligners are made from clear plastic, they will need to be cleaned regularly. If you do not clean your aligners frequently, they may cause your teeth to appear yellow, gray or stained. This is why you will work closely with our hygienist to create a proper hygiene schedule during treatment and you will receive whitening solution to whiten your teeth as part of your orthodontic treatment.
