Dr. Arsalan Elahi offers a variety of clear aligner orthodontics at his office in Middlebury, CT, including Invisalign and SureSmile clear aligners. He has many years of experience working with patients in need of realignment, both minor and significant, and he has had great results with clear aligners.
What to Expect from Clear Aligners
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.
