Get Clear Aligner Orthodontics in Middlebury, CT

Crooked, gapped, or misaligned teeth can be more than an aesthetic issue. These issues can make your teeth harder to clean, leading to decay and other dental problems. However, many patients with alignment needs have avoided orthodontics, not wanting to rely on metal brackets and wires. Luckily, these are no longer necessary. In many cases, patients can get perfect results from clear aligner trays.

What to Expect from Clear Aligners

SureSmile and Invisalign work similarly, involving clear aligner trays that you can easily remove for eating or cleaning. At your first appointment, you’ll discuss the benefits of each approach, and you and Dr. Elahi will decide the best course of treatment based on your goals.

If clear aligners are correct for you, Dr. Elahi will use advanced 3D imaging technology to take images of your jaw and its underlying structures. He will then send those images to a lab that will use a unique computer program to design a correction course for your teeth. The lab will manufacture a series of clear, plastic aligner trays explicitly tailored to your needs. You’ll start with tray one, changing them out every ten days or so on your own. Slowly, the trays will shift your teeth into alignment without discomfort or the painful wire-tightening associated with bracket braces.

Your clear aligners can be easily removed for eating and cleaning, and should they become lost or damaged, you can be quickly and easily replace them. The length of time you’ll wear your aligners varies depending on the patient, but clear aligners often take less time than traditional braces.

For patients worried about the cost of clear aligners, Dr. Elahi offers various financing options that can help you pay for orthodontics at your convenience.
