Clear Aligners

Straighten your teeth discreetly with clear dental aligners

Think of someone who has a terrific smile. Chances are, they have straight teeth and a healthy bite. Properly aligned teeth not only look great but can also improve the health of your smile and prevent issues such as TMJ disorder. However, many adults are hesitant to undergo traditional orthodontic treatment with metal braces because they are unsightly and uncomfortable. At Family Dentistry of Walnut Creek, we are proud to offer our Walnut Creek, California, area patients a discreet alternative: clear aligners.

How clear dental aligners work

Clear aligners have revolutionized the way that people can achieve straight teeth and healthier jaw alignment. We will take a 3-dimensional scan of your mouth during your initial consultation and then use advanced computer technology to plan out your treatment. Based on this information, your customized series of clear aligners is designed to gradually shift your teeth and jaw into the optimal position. Each set of aligners is worn for one to two weeks before you switch them out for the next in the series. For best results, it is important to wear the aligners for 22 hours per day.

Benefits of clear aligners

Millions of patients worldwide have chosen clear aligner therapy to straighten their teeth. Some of the clear aligner benefits include:

  • Discreet: The aligners are nearly invisible to your friends, family, and coworkers, so no one needs to know that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment
  • Comfort: The BPA-free aligners are designed for comfort, with no metal brackets or wires poking your mouth
  • Convenience: Because the aligners are completely removable, you can continue to enjoy your favorite foods and beverages with no restrictions, and you can easily take care of your teeth with regular brushing and flossing without having to work around metal wires
  • Effectiveness: Clear aligners can provide the same great end results as traditional orthodontics in most cases; however, severe cases of misalignment may require traditional orthodontic treatment instead of clear aligners
